Day 152 of the podcast, reading Job 12-14 NET, read along at:
This is day 152 of our journey.
All three of Job's friends have now spoken and Job responds to them with sarcasm. He makes it clear that they are NOT the only possessors of wisdom. True wisdom and understanding belong only to God. He calls for them to just sit quietly rather than speak folly. Job asserts that these men are arguing in defense of God upon false lines, through limited knowledge. The result is that they were unjust to Job even though they likely did not recognize it or intend it to be so. Job then reaffirms his committment to the Lord regardless of his circumstances, but pleads for a chance to state his case before God. He finishes his speech by emphasizing the brevity of man's life, but the hope of a second life.
Join me in Job 12-14 as Job speaks with wisdom and recognizes the power of his Lord.
“With God are wisdom and power;counsel and understanding are his.
Even if he slays me, I will hope in him; I will surely defend my ways to his face!
“Man, born of woman, lives but a few days, and they are full of trouble.
