Job 11-14

Filed under: Old Testament — Thomas @ 17:17

Now Zophar gets a chance to add his two cents worth. He declares that if Job puts away his own sin and that of his family he will lift up his face and stand firm without fear (11:14f). Needless to say, Job does not appreciate his comfort either. Job declares that he knows conventional wisdom just as well as they do. He attacks their integrity and declares that they cannot stand before God any more than he can. He goes on the attack, calling their words useless. He then calls on God to grant him two things: first, to withdraw his hand from him; second, to summon Job and let him defend himself against any charges of which he may be accused (13:20ff).
