Job 22-24

Filed under: Old Testament — Thomas @ 12:27

In chapter 22 Eliphaz returns for one last attack on Job’s actions and character. He can see no other possibility than Job being a sinner and accuses him of all sort of gross wickedness (22:5-9). Job laments in chapter 23 that he cannot find God to state his case before him and seek resolution. Job recognises that he is innocent of all these charges but he is suffering, something that is unexpected for such a righteous man. In chapter 24 Job recounts the sins of those around him. There are many who do wicked things (although he is not among them). At the end of the day he expects them to be punished.
