Day 154 of the podcast, reading Job 19-21 NET, read along at:
This is day 154 of our journey.
Job starts by pleading with his counselors for comfort rather than condemnation, even if he is at fault. Job has been through a significant amount of personal trauma and deserves some grace and sympathy from others. Unfortunately, everyone he cares about has abandoned him! Instead, Zophar continues to accuse Job of evil by stating that the prosperity of the wicked is brief, implying that since Job's prosperity was taken away from him, he must be wicked. Job responds by refuting the premise, the wicked do NOT always suffer in this life but often die in their prosperity. All the words of his accusers are deception.
Join me in Job 19-21 to learn how a true comforter should act!
As for me, I know that my Redeemer lives,and that as the last he will stand upon the earth.
“Surely you know that it has been from old,ever since humankind was placed on the earth, 5 that the elation of the wicked is brief, the joy of the godless lasts but a moment.
So how can you console me with your futile words?Nothing is left of your answers but deception!”
