  • God giveth and God taketh away. I can't speculate on how Job even felt, but I venture to say, he had a good enough relationship with God to know that there's more to life, there's more to eternity.

  • The Hymn of the Righteous Sufferer was written to celebrate the god Marduk, who was the primary Babylonian deity. Marduk held a central position in this polytheistic culture because he ruled over all other gods and is credited with creating humans.

  • Trust. Job 13:15 Though He slay me, yet will I trust him: but I will maintain mine own ways before Him.
    He had developed such a good relationship with God that He knew His character. He knew he could trust God through anything.

  • Trust and kept his focus on God the whole time! He did not look to the left or the right the whole time.

  • It is doubtful that he existed because no human could endure so much without cursing both heaven and hell. Or he was incredibly stupid and superstitious and was afraid god would do WORSE to him if he said something.

  • Well, for one, he was being realistic. He said that he came into the world naked, so he would leave it naked. Then he repeatedly acknowledged the contorl of the Lord over all circumstances. He proved that people can love God for who he is, not for what he gives.
