Consider how I love your precepts! Give me life according to your steadfast love. Give me life according to Your steadfast love. Give me wisdom, give me hope, give me strength, give me peace, give me joy, give me righteousness—I have the power of the Spirit at work within me—teach…
From where, then, does wisdom come? And where is the place of understanding?It is hidden from the eyes of all living and concealed from the birds of the air. Abaddon and Death say, ‘We have heard a rumor of it with our ears.’ “God understands the way to it, and…
Why do the wicked live, reach old age, and grow mighty in power? Their offspring are established in their presence, and their descendants before their eyes. Their houses are safe from fear, and no rod of God is upon them. Job is like the rest of us. How come the…
Then Job answered and said: “Keep listening to my words, and let this be your comfort. Bear with me, and I will speak, and after I have spoken, mock on. As for me, is my complaint against man? Why should I not be impatient? Look at me and be appalled,…
And after my skin has been thus destroyed, yet in my flesh I shall see God, whom I shall see for myself, and my eyes shall behold, and not another. My heart faints within me! If you say, ‘How we will pursue him!’ and, ‘The root of the matter is…
“Indeed, the light of the wicked is put out, and the flame of his fire does not shine. The light is dark in his tent, and his lamp above him is put out. His strong steps are shortened, and his own schemes throw him down. For he is cast into…
The wicked man writhes in pain all his days, through all the years that are laid up for the ruthless. Dreadful sounds are in his ears; in prosperity the destroyer will come upon him. He does not believe that he will return out of darkness, and he is marked for…
With my whole heart, I cry; answer me, O LORD! I will keep your statutes. I call to you; save me, that I may observe your testimonies. I rise before dawn and cry for help; I hope in your words. I am powerless over sin, without the ability to keep…
But you are doing away with the fear of God and hindering meditation before God. Old buddy, Eliphaz, takes it upon himself to put Job to rights before the LORD. Not only is he filled with windy knowledge and hindering meditation but he is doing away to the fear of…
Only grant me two things, then I will not hide myself from your face: withdraw your hand far from me, and let not dread of you terrify me. Then call, and I will answer; or let me speak, and you reply to me. Job politely explains to his friends that…
He will surely rebuke you if in secret you show partiality. Will not his majesty terrify you, and the dread of him fall upon you? Job begins to show his resentment of the way his dearest friends have insisted upon his failure, with a very fair question. They have been…
Surely then you will lift up your face without blemish; you will be secure and will not fear. You will lie down, and none will make you afraid; many will court your favor. Zophar builds quite a case based on the assumption that all this is the result of Job's…
If I say, ‘I will forget my complaint, I will put off my sad face, and be of good cheer,’ I become afraid of all my suffering, for I know you will not hold me innocent. I shall be condemned; why then do I labor in vain? If I wash…
For you have now become nothing; you see my calamity and are afraid. Have I said, ‘Make me a gift’? Or, ‘From your wealth offer a bribe for me’? Or, ‘Deliver me from the adversary's hand’? Or, ‘Redeem me from the hand of the ruthless’? I need to read Job…
The unfolding of your words gives light; it imparts understanding to the simple. Lord, that light will shine within the prisons as we go in to give the story of salvation through You alone, for there is no other name, given under heaven, whereby men might be saved. Lord, my…
