Job 42

Say What?

Then Job answered the LORD: 2 "I know that you can do all things, and that no purpose of yours can be thwarted. 3 'Who is this that hides counsel without knowledge?' Therefore I have uttered what I did not understand, things too wonderful for me, which I did not know. 4 'Hear, and I will speak; I will question you, and you declare to me.' 5 I had heard of you by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees you; 6 therefore I despise myself, and repent in dust and ashes."

Got Wind?

Musings

Job has just been in dialogue with God about his condition. God provides a very definitive non-answer to his question (chapter 41), leaving Job to this response above. Job is essentially saying that he now realizes God is not going to answer his questions, so he is reluctantly giving up. After this encounter however, Job is more than restored to his former good condition and in most respects he passed the test (held to his faith and did not renounce God). Of course, his original wife, family and cattle probably weren't too thrilled by the test. It's similar to an action-adventure movie; it never pays to be the best friend of the hero.
