Day 151 of the podcast, reading Job 9-11 NET, read along at:
This is day 151 of our journey.
Job agrees with Bildad in that if a man is just before God, he will be secure. But, "how can a human be just before God?" If God brings a charge, can man call him to court and justify himself? God is great, man is nothing. He doesn't need to answer our requests for explanation. We need an arbiter to represent us before him! (Praise God, that he has since sent an arbiter with the name of Jesus Christ!)
Now, Zophar speaks, he accuses Job of a multitude of secret sins, and wishes that God would speak out the truth. Then Job would know that the punishment he is receiving is less than he deserves. Then he reiterates that if a man will only turn from his iniquity, God will rescue him from discipline and establish him securely.
Join me in Job 9-11 to recognize the sovereignty of God from two different perspectives.
“Truly, I know that this is so.But how can a human be just before God?
I will say to God, ‘Do not condemn me;tell me why you are contending with me.’
if iniquity is in your hand – put it far away, and do not let evil reside in your tents. 15 For then you will lift up your face without blemish; you will be securely established and will not fear.
