Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following sentence?
To the captain he is faithful like a friend and attentive like a son with the patience of Job, the unselfish devotion of a woman and the jollity of a boon companion.
the patience of Job = the patience of a saint = angelic patience
boon companion = close friend = an intimate friend from whom somebody is inseparable
Thanks for your efforts.
