Week 25 Day 5
Job wanted a chance
to confront God
Now he got that chance
Job had been asking
a lot of questions
Now it is God's turn
to ask the questions
Job's desire for debate
gave way to
which is a common response
to encounters with God
those who "see" God
despise their sinfulness.
Job endured terrible suffering
and came through it
with renewed faith
and sent the devil packing.
THE FINALEJob gets his hearing with God and decides he is unworthy. Job 38, 39, 40 & 42
1The Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said,
2"Who is this who darkens counsel by words without knowledge?
3Now prepare yourself like a man; I will question you, and you
shall answer Me.
4"Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth?
Tell Me, if you have understanding. 5Who determined its
measurements? Surely you know! Who stretched the line upon
it? To what were its foundations fastened? Or who laid its
cornerstone, 7when the morning stars sang together, and all the
sons of God shouted for joy?
12"Have you commanded the morning and caused the dawn
to know its place? 16Have you entered the springs of the sea?
Have you walked in search of the depths. 18Have you known
the breadth of the earth? Tell Me, if you know all this.
26"Does the hawk fly by your wisdom, and spread its wings
toward the south? 27Does the eagle mount up at your command,
and make its nest on high?"
1Moreover the Lord answered Job, and said: 2"Shall the one
who contends with the Almighty correct Him? He who rebukes
God, let him answer it."
3Then Job answered the Lord and said: 4"Behold, I am vile;
What shall I answer You? I lay my hand over my mouth.
5Once I have spoken, but I will not answer; Yes, twice, but I
will proceed no further."
1Again Job answered the Lord: 2"I know that You can do
everything; that no purpose of Yours can be withheld. 3You
asked, 'Who is this who hides counsel without knowledge?'
Therefore I have uttered what I did not understand, things too
wonderful for me, which I did not know. 4Listen, please, and
let me speak; You said, 'I will question you, and you shall
5"I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, but now my
eye sees You. 6And I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes."
12Now the Lord blessed the latter days of Job more than his
beginning; he had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels,
one thousand yoke of oxen, and one thousand female donkeys.
13He also had seven sons and three daughters. 15 In all the land
were found no women so beautiful as the daughters of Job.
16After this Job lived one hundred and forty years, and saw
his children and grandchildren for four generations. This Bible passage was condensed from the NKJV
