Insights on Today's Reading
Job 24 - Job invites his "friends" to see what he sees about God. He sees that God doesn't punish the wicked when they should be punished, but punishes their children instead. The wicked also make life miserable for the poor. But, by verse 19-25 Job believes the wicked will eventually face judgment.
Job 25 - Bildad once again tries to get Job to confess sin because no one is righteous enough for God.
Job 26 - From this chapter until chapter 31 Job gives his last speech until chapter 42. Job says his "friends" have given insufficient advice. Then in verses 5-14 Job acknowledges God's creative powers.
Job 27 - Job will not deny his integrity and God will judge the wicked.
Job 28 - In the midst of Job's suffering he clearly states that wisdom is not something men can find hidden in mines or in any other human endeavor. Yes, it has to be sought with the diligence of a miner. Wisdom is found in the fear of God and understanding comes from staying away from evil.
