Day 12 of Reading the Bible in 365 Days

Job 27-31 (The short version)

27 – Any man against God will suffer and his offspring will suffer.

28 – The worth and comparisons of money (gold, silver, etc.); The fear of the Lord–that is wisdom, and to shun evil is understanding.

29 – Job is reminiscing of his days gone by, when God favored him and poured only goodness upon his life.  His life was full, not only comfortable but he was honored highly by everyone who knew him and news traveled to strangers of his goodness in serving all the needy.  He was the highest standing in the community.  Back then, he and God were the closest for friends.

30 – Just the opposite of the previous chapter, as everyone has come to hate him.

31- Job pleads his case before God making an account of everything he could have possibly done wrong, then consenting to God to punish him for his crimes if he has done anything wrong.  He will gladly take the punishment for anything he has done wrong.
