Day 11 of Reading The Bible in 365 Days

Job 21-26

Hallie says Job 21 is basically saying when we die that the good and the evil shall be in the same boat, meaning they will not be different nor separated.

Job is arguing the injustice of the wicked and how they live a rich life with all their wealth, fertile cows producing offspring, many children dancing and playing about and they all go to their graves in peace, and tell God, who are you that we should pray to you, we know you not.  Yet, the good, the upright, the just people live a tortured life, being tested and tormented.  God saves a man’s punishment for his sons.  Job agrees with me that the punishment should befall the man himself, not his offspring.

22 – Hallie says that Eliphaz is accusing Job of being wicked and sinful since he has no right to accuse God The Almighty.

If Job only submits to God and his instruction, he will be restored.

23- Job admits to moaning, groaning and complaining but also claims God as his own, as no one is greater than he.  God has terrified Job but Job will not be silenced by the darkness.

24 – This chapter goes on to further describe the wicked

25 – Bildad is simply claiming that God is incomparable to man.  Dominion and awe belong to God.

26 – Job is rejoicing in God’s greatness and his strength and power over everything.  He created everything out of nothing.  No one is greater than God.  There is nothing he cannot do.
