Please read Job 40:6-24, Job 41, and Job 42, and come on back! Let’s visit a little bit more about Job. Even these Old Testament histories have principles that can be applied to us today!
Interesting: the Lord was angry with the friends for not speaking accurately about Him, and then what does He have Job do for them? God speaks to Eliphaz:
“I’ve had it with you and your two friends. I’m fed up! You haven’t been honest either with me or about me—not the way my friend Job has. So here’s what you must do. Take seven bulls and seven rams, and go to my friend Job. Sacrifice a burnt offering on your own behalf. My friend Job will pray for you, and I will accept his prayer” (42:7-8 MSG)
JOB PRAYS FOR THEM, rather than continuing in a futile argument with them!
“After Job had interceded for his friends, God restored his fortune” (42:10 MSG)
Sometimes we learn from an example what TO DO, and sometimes we learn from an example what NOT TO DO. Here we have both!
