Title︰A Tested Faith: Friend of Job, Is my Anger Justified?
Passage︰Job 11:1-12; 13:13-16

Job 11:1-12

  1. Then Zophar the Naamathite replied:
  2. “Are all these words to go unanswered? Is this talker to be vindicated?
  3. Will your idle talk reduce others to silence? Will no one rebuke you when you mock?
  4. You say to God, ‘My beliefs are flawless and I am pure in your sight.’
  5. Oh, how I wish that God would speak, that he would open his lips against you
  6. and disclose to you the secrets of wisdom, for true wisdom has two sides. Know this: God has even forgotten some of your sin.
  7. “Can you fathom the mysteries of God? Can you probe the limits of the Almighty?
  8. They are higher than the heavens above—what can you do? They are deeper than the depths below—what can you know?
  9. Their measure is longer than the earth and wider than the sea.
  10. “If he comes along and confines you in prison and convenes a court, who can oppose him?
  11. Surely he recognizes deceivers; and when he sees evil, does he not take note?
  12. But the witless can no more become wise than a wild donkey’s colt can be born human.

 

Job 13:13-16

  1. “Keep silent and let me speak; then let come to me what may.
  2. Why do I put myself in jeopardy and take my life in my hands?
  3. Though he slay me, yet will I hope in him; I will surely defend my ways to his face.
  4. Indeed, this will turn out for my deliverance, for no godless person would dare come before him!
