Job Chapter 2

Job 2

King James Version

1.  Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them to present himself before the Lord.

And the Lord said unto Satan, From whence comest thou? And Satan answered the Lord, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.

And the Lord said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? and still he holdeth fast his integrity, although thou movedst me against him, to destroy him without cause.

And Satan answered the Lord, and said, Skin for skin, yea, all that a man hath will he give for his life.

But put forth thine hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh, and he will curse thee to thy face.

And the Lord said unto Satan, Behold, he is in thine hand; but save his life.

So went Satan forth from the presence of the Lord, and smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot unto his crown.

And he took him a potsherd to scrape himself withal; and he sat down among the ashes.

Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die.

10 But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips.

11 Now when Job’s three friends heard of all this evil that was come upon him, they came every one from his own place; Eliphaz the Temanite, and Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite: for they had made an appointment together to come to mourn with him and to comfort him.

12 And when they lifted up their eyes afar off, and knew him not, they lifted up their voice, and wept; and they rent every one his mantle, and sprinkled dust upon their heads toward heaven.

13 So they sat down with him upon the ground seven days and seven nights, and none spake a word unto him: for they saw that his grief was very great.

  1. 10 But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips.

  2. Many people think that believing in God protects them from trouble, so when calamity comes, they question God’s goodness and justice. The message of Job is that we should not give up on God because he allows us to have bad experiences. Faith in God does not guarantee personal prosperity, and lack of faith does not guarantee trouble in this life. If this were so, people would believe in God simply to get rich. God is capable of rescuing us from suffering, but he may also allow suffering to come for reasons we cannot understand. It is Satan’s strategy to get us to doubt God at exactly this moment. Here Job shows a perspective broader than seeking his own personal comfort. If we always knew why we were suffering, our faith would have no room to grow.

  3. Knowing when to stay silent
    13 So they sat down with him upon the ground seven days and seven nights, and none spake a word unto him: for they saw that his grief was very great.

    Not everyone who is going through a problem needs to hear you talk. Some just need a friend to sit with them

  4. THE PERFECT TRIAL

    3 And the Lord said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? and still he holdeth fast his integrity, although thou movedst me against him, to destroy him without cause.

    GOD chose Job for THE PERFECT TRIAL. Many are called, but few are chosen. Few can stand to be chosen. THE PERFECT TRIAL is GOD initiated. The LORD GOD recognized Satan’s attempt to destroy Job.

    Job attracted GOD by the lifestyle that “escheweth evil”

    escheweth – 5493. soor; to turn off (literal or figurative):—be(-head), bring, call back, decline, depart, eschew, get (you), go (aside), x grievous, lay away (by), leave undone, be past, pluck away, put (away, down), rebel, remove (to and fro), revolt, x be sour, take (away, off), turn (aside, away, in), withdraw, be without.

    This means Job took no pleasure in evil, in fact it indicates that Job did not even pay attention to evil. Satan and evil driven People really begin to make serious accusation when we ignore their evil ignorance.

    However in Job’s case here, GOD did approve THE PERFECT TRIAL.

    THE PERFECT TRIAL

    1. It appeared to please Satan.
    2. It reveals GOD’s trust in man (Job).
    3. It had GOD ordained boundaries.
    4. It was a set up by GOD to defeat the devil by the power of man’s choice. (Adam failed this test.)
    5. It affected Job’s friends and family. (Witnessing tool)
    6. Job remained positive in the midst of severe pain.
    7. Job ignored the negative, false accusations of his wife and friends.

    LORD JESUS, help me be prepared; should you choose me for THE PERFECT TRIAL.

  5. This chapter illustrates loyalty. Job proved that he was sold out to Jesus; “What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips.” One will be loyal to someone or something, as such one must choose whom or what, for one’s very eternity and possibly another’s is at stake. May the good Lord Bless you all in Jesus name, Amen

  6. Verse 10 MSG reads “He told her, “You’re talking like an empty-headed fool. We take the good days from God—why not also the bad days?”
    Not once through all this did Job sin. He said nothing against God.” This chapter spoke volumes to me. We speak about it, say that we would rejoice even in bad times; but, “Will we?????”, “Have we????” I am just so thankful that I know Job’s God, my God! We can not afford to be empty-headed, there are to many people who still don’t know who he is. Always be an encourager, be a friend and remember God is on your side.

  7. 9 Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die.

    10 But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips.

    I got a bit of revelation about marriage from this. I can think of a few times when faced with some sort of adversity that we begin a blame game. Well if you hadn’t done this, or if you’d payed more attention to this…Satan will do anything he can to drive a wedge between you and God…including using those closest to you. Job wasn’t the only one that lost his children and possessions, but his wife did as well. Not having the understanding as to why these events occurred, she blamed Job for the hardship she was experiencing. It is important that we work together in times of tribulation, so we don’t become stumbling blocks to each other.

  8. 9 Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die.

    10 But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips.

    Beware wives! What you say can drastically effect your spouse. You speak life or death with you tongue. Applying the 3, 10 or even 30 second rule to what is going to come out of your mouth might be a good practice. Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks, just your heart and if there is negativity, spend time with the Master until you can clean it out of your spirit. Our spouses need us, women of God to be women of God in word and deed!

  9. jobs wife should had prayed n spoke life unto job but instead she was negative. God sent satin to job because He knew that job would not fail. we all have our tests. there are certain tests that we are able to go through. every test is not for everyone. thank God

  10. Job 2:2 NLT

    “Where have you come from?” the LORD asked Satan. Satan answered the LORD, “I have been patrolling the earth, watching everything that’s going on.”

    This world is not our home. I’m reminded that we are pilgrims just passing through. Satan is the prince of the air patrolling the earth and watching everything that’s going on. This is also another reason we must create at atmosphere of worship everywhere we go. Worship should be a lifestyle of every child of God. Shifting the atmosphere!

    Ephesians 2:2 KJV

    Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

  11. Job 2:9-10 NLT

    His wife said to him, “Are you still trying to maintain your integrity? Curse God and die.”
    But Job replied, “You talk like a foolish woman. Should we accept only good things from the hand of God and never anything bad?” So in all this, Job said nothing wrong.

    Proverbs 31 goes hand and hand with these verses. It states in AMP Proverbs 31:
    Vs11-12 that she will greatly enrich his life and bring him good not harm all the days of her life.
    Vs 15 she rises while it is yet night and gets [spiritual] food for her household and assigns her maids their tasks.
    Vs 18 her lamp goes not out all through the night [of trouble, privation, or sorrow, warning away fear, doubt, and distrust].
    Vs 20 she reaches to the needy [whether in body, mind, or spirit].
    Vs 26-27 she gives skillful and godly Wisdom. Her tongue is the law of kindness [ giving counsel and instruction]. and the bread of idleness (gossip, discontent, and self-pity) she will not eat.
    ******Vs 29 she excels all daughters who have virtuously, nobly and well with the strength of character that is steadfast in goodness. Esther was virtuous and noble but this verse verses tells me that the Proverbs 31 women excels even Esther. Wow! ******
    Vs 30 not charm, grace or beauty which are deceptive and vain but a woman who reverently and worshipfully fears the Lord, she shall be praised!

  12. Accountability

    Job 2:2 NLT

    “Where have you come from?” the LORD asked Satan.
    Satan answered the LORD, “I have been patrolling the earth, watching everything that’s going on.”

    Even Satan is accountable for his actions. How much more should we be accountable for ours. It sets us up for a challenge and growth.

    The Day is Coming

    1. Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them to present himself before the Lord.

    The day will come in which the devil will no longer have access to accuse the brethren before God…

    And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. (Revelation 12:10-12 KJV)

    THAT DAY IS COMING SOON… I wonder who is going to win the election?

    • My computer is messed up and unable to leavecomments. For some reason I was able to type so I hope it post Have been running fever for three days . Don’t want to call doc cause she will stick me back into hospital. Pray for me.ALL OF jobs friends were speehless. Comforting words probably would of not helped.Satan put a nervous disorder on him because of all his problems and worries. Once in &th grade I developed a nevous condition that caused my hands to break out in boils and I had to wear white gloves to school. When we are not affected by things around us and we keep the faith,he can attack the body also. Job stood for good and was rewarded by God.

  14. I find myself drawn to vese 10. I am sitting on an American Airlines plane that was due to take off a while ago. However there is a mysterious issue that is preventing us from taking off. Could that mystery be angry pilots?

    Anyway, i was sitting here stewing about my situation and realized i have not blogged today. So, as i mentiond verse 10 jumped on me. I know my situation does not compare to boils from head to toe, but i am agrivated none the less. Job hit the nail on the head, as its said. “We take the good days from God—why not also the bad days?”

    If it were not for the bad days, trials and tribulation, victories; no matter how small, would loose their potency.

    Thank you Jesus for the extra time to study and meditate on you and your word!

  15. 9 Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die.

    10 But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips.

    Wives we need to uplift our husbands daily and pray for them daily. If your husband is out working and providing for his family and leading the family in truth be thankful for him and lift him up. Don’t ever belittle your husband in public if you disagree wait till you are alone and discuss it. Always say positive things about your husband.
    WIves here is you some commandments for you to read about and help your husband.

    Expect not thy husband to give thee as many luxuries as thy father hath given thee after many years of hard labor. (Phil 4:11; Amos 4:1)
    Thou shalt work hard to build thy house with the husband that you have, not fantasizing about “the one that could have been”. (Prov 14:1)
    Thou shalt not nag…hit him with thine frying pan, it is kindlier. (Prov 27:15; 21:19)
    Thou shalt coddle thy husband and be a warm wife. (1 Cor 7:3-5)
    Remember that the frank approval of thy husband is more to thee than the side glances of many strangers. (Ezek 16:32; 2 Pet 2:14)
    Thou shalt not yell at thy husband but will be a gentle and quiet spirit. (1 Pet 3:1-4)
    Permit no one to assure thee that thou art having a hard time of it. (1 Pet 5:9)
    Thou shall not fail to dress up for thy husband with an eye to please him, as thou didst before marriage. (Sos 4:9-11)
    Thou shalt submit to thy husband from thy heart and allow him to be head of the household. (Col 3:18; 1 Pet 3:6; Eph 5:33)
    Thou shalt assure thy husband and others that he is the greatest man alive. (Phil 2:3; Sos 5:9-16)

    Just some thoughts for Fusion 🙂

  16. Mark 10:8 And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.

    Job may have been the one chosen for this test but because he was married his wife was also chosen. For those of us who are married its very important for us to remember when we go through things that we are not going through them alone. It has always been easy for me to be critical of job’s wife for her words in this chapter until i looked from her perspective. A mother who lost all 10 of her children suddenly and all the substance that her and job had likely built up during their life together. Her words were spoken out of pain and a broken heart. Though her words were not helpful, they were fairly understandable. I believe job understood his wife’s pain and his response was not meant to be harsh but to bring an emotionally painful situation to a logical thinking. He was giving his wife something to cling to. Even in his great grief job was trying to help his lifelong partner in hers. This to me shows how great of a man job was, that he wasn’t just consumed in himself.

  17. 9 Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die.

    When the world tells you to give up, that is when you are the closest to your blessing. One of the things that I admired about my dad is that he did not allow the world or his friends to persuade him if he knew that it was from God. Many times I find that the most popular answers are the ones that alot of people don’t want to hear. As it has been stated many times at church, as long as it doesn’t go against God and the Bible its fine, but the minute that it does be the odd man and walk the right way. Don’t be a follower, but be a leader in these times. Job is an inspiration for the fact that the closest people in his life told him to curse God and die. Yet he didn’t and therefore as we will read on the blessings are in the waiting as long as there is no cursing God.

  18. How Low Can You Go?

    7 So went Satan forth from the presence of the Lord, and smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot unto his crown.

    8 And he took him a potsherd to scrape himself withal; and he sat down among the ashes.

    9 Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die.

    10 But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips.

    It’s easy to give Job’s wife a hard time over v9, but we must not ignore the context of her statement. The was the woman who didn’t suggest he “curse God and die” when the oxen and donkeys were taken and all but one servant with them died, didn’t say it when the sheep and all but one servant with them died, didn’t say it when the camels were taken and all but one servant with them died, and didn’t even say it when their children died and only one servant escaped to tell of it. In all of this, and all of it pretty much at once in one day, Job’s wife apparently did not sin with her lips.

    Until Job was afflicted in his body.

    Apparently his physical affliction was so horrible she thought it was better for him to just die than go on in his afflicted state. The woman who was able to make it through the loss of possessions, servants, and even children, suddenly couldn’t bear it anymore when it appeared to her that death would be better for her husband than continued suffering.

    It speaks to the frailty of our humanity. We all have a weak spot, someplace where it naturally doesn’t take quite as much to get us raising the white flag. Just think about it. We remember Job’s wife for her being “a foolish woman” telling Job to “curse God and die,” but what if Job had not been afflicted in his body? We might remember her as the wife who stuck by him through it all and stayed a faithful encourager. Just one thing, and our perception of her drastically changes. But even Job didn’t call her a foolish woman, he only said she spoke “as one of the foolish women” or “like a foolish woman.” He knew better than to judge her whole character based on just this one instance when she had apparently reached her limit.

    It begs the question, how low can you go? How low can any of us go before we reach our snapping point and start making wrong decisions because we lose perspective and the reality of circumstance is screaming louder than the reality of God’s truth?

    Deuteronomy 33:26-27 “There is none like unto the God of Jeshurun, who rideth upon the heaven in thy help, and in his excellency on the sky. The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms…”

    No matter how bad it gets, no matter how low it seems we have gotten, still *underneath* are the everlasting arms of God. We cannot go too low for Him. Calvary tells us that not even the pit of hell is too low for Him to save us. On the flip side, the Bible also exhorts those of us that have strength in God to stand as encouragers to help bear the burdens of those that are weak. God is our foundation, but everyone needs help; we all have a weak place, just like Job’s wife shows.

    We must endeavor to keep the unity of the Spirit, it won’t just happen on accident. Bearing one another’s burdens is part of pursuing unity and peace in the church, which can mean an encouraging word, praying for one another, sometimes even jumping in and lending a hand, etc. The Bible says the church is the body of Christ; well the arms are part of the body, which tells me that sometimes when “underneath are the everlasting arms” that means God is calling His church to step in and be the encouragement and help that is needed.

    Individually, we all have our limits through our infirmity. But collectively, we can stand in much greater strength as His unified church. Job’s wife is a reminder we must have an eye for the “sparrow.” The Bible teaches how God knows when even the sparrow falls from the sky, so should we pay attention when one of “the least of these” among us falls. Job’s wife was a woman likely of wealth, influence, power, status, etc. yet we find in this chapter that even though she seemed almost “above” being weak and vulnerable to falling, she was that day a sparrow. That day, she needed help. That day, she needed the some everlasting arms underneath her.

    Our question as a church should not be “how low can I go?” but “how low can we go, together?”

    Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”

    Today I may be a sparrow (abased), tomorrow an eagle (abound), but I can do all things through Christ (which includes His body.) When the last trump sounds, He’s going to call His bride to rise. Not just individually, but collectively. We should strive to not just make it to heaven ourselves but make sure we get to someday be there along with our brothers and sisters too. It starts with our individual relationship with God, but we must not stop there but continue on until…

  19. Job 2:9
    Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die.

    Job remained faithful and true to God no matter what happened. His faith, hope, life, love, and future were based on God. As long as God was there he had security.

    Job’s wife saw her kids die, her houses destroyed, her husband struck down almost to death, and wealth rapidly depleted. In a moment which revealed her heart, she chose to curse God.

    Our trials reveal who we are. The testing brings out the impurities.

    We can experience a taste of this when we fast. This is because the flesh acts out. However, when we continually submit to God the fire will only reveal small imperfections and then we can shine.

  20. Because Job’s wife only speaks once in scripture, we can only guess at all that is in her mind and heart when she urges Job to cash in his chips, and curse God. Although Job and his wife are not Israelites, they may have had an innate appreciation for the OT law which prescribed death to anyone who cursed God (Lev 24:15-16). It is interesting to me that he is so devote to a God who is not of his nation, he, his wife, his friends the “Shuhite” and the “Naamathite” reverance the same One of Israel! Its expressed also in Romans 11: 3 “Lord, they have killed your prophets and torn down your altars. I am the only one left, and now they are trying to kill me, too.” 4And do you remember God’s reply? He said, “No, I have 7,000 others who have never bowed down to Baal!” And I believe He had Job, and others like him in mind when this revlation was written. Job isn’t alone in his trial and neither are we. Job’s second test is isn’t necessarily over loss, because he’s pretty much already lost all his “posessions” which could be coveted by a ‘carnal’ mentality. Job’s wife catches a bad wrap for her desperate, foolish outburst, she could have pesimistically assumed that Job had nothing to live for, she seems to hasten the day when he’d be put out of his misery. We could look at her as a temptress, like a instrument for Satan’s plot to derail her husband’s faithfulness. In fact we could contrast her to the role of Eve in the garden, she too was tempted, and in turn tempted Adam. This perspective overlooks the possibility that her own despair may have arisen from her own tramatic losses, something that the enemy could have manipulated to his benefit, unbeknown to her. After all, Job was not the only one to lose ten children and a great deal of wealth. Intense human suffering quikly reveals the condition of a person’s faith.

    We can use her senario for an example for the hurting people surrounding us today. Seems that she couldn’t stand it any longer, she held her hands to her head- and shrieked at Job. She must have thought that Job had to do something to end this siege, even if it meant dying. Suicide is never the anwser to any problem, they both knew the consequences of cursing God, and she selfishly and disobediently wanted to stop the suffering despite the costs. She must have loved the life they had together, and was looking forward to their golden years together with the kids all grown. She shows signs of being terrified and angry, their life was now broken and she didn’t know how to put things back together. The simple truth is ‘carnally’ their is now way for us to piece back together some tragedy which God has allowed. Their is no “quick fix” sorry, unless God decides to them raise up, even suicide would not be a quick fix because an eternity in hell is no easy way out. She didn’t know how to be strong for Job, he had always been the head and provider ..so she yelled at Job, which I’m not saying is right, but under these circumstances, I can understand. Her anger and pain frustrated Job, and he had enough to contend with, after all he is covered in boils head to toe… So he shot back: “Stop being foolish!” but he also comforted her. At that point Job’s wife had the wisdom- and the grace- to stop talking. She could now only wait and see what God would do. This exchange reminds me of Matt 16: “23Jesus turned to Peter and said, “Get away from me, Satan! You are a dangerous trap to me. You are seeing things merely from a human point of view, not from God’s.” Job continued to be like-God in repremanding his wife to cool her jets. God allows things to happen for a reason, trusting in God is part of the battle. Suffering and loss profoundly test relationships. Marriages have foundered and relatioships have been collapsed when familiar roles are reversed. The people we love cannot always make us feel secure in the eye of a storm. There are no pat answers for a tragedy, pain and suffering. We have to ‘trust in God no matter what the circumstances’ and continue this voyage. We have to read the end of the Book: “He will wipe every tear from your eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” (Rev 21:4)

  21. 3. And the Lord said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?
    and still he holdeth fast his integrity,
    although thou movedst me against him, to destroy him without cause.

    9 Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die.

    Notice that the very thing God mentioned about Job is what his wife berated him with. Be careful – what you try to hold against someone could be what God is ‘bragging on them’ about.

    I hope that when my journey here is over, it can be said if me, “he held fast his integrity.”

  22. 9 Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die.

    Wife watch the words that come out of your mouth towards your husband. We are to build him up, not tare him down.

    Today’s chapter goes hand in hand with our Proverbs 31:10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

    11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.

    12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

    James 4:7 7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

    Prov 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
    6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

    Bless the Lord oh my soul and all that is within me Bless His Holy Name!!!

    I will continue to lay EVERYTHING at your feet for GOD is GOOD all the time and ALL the time GOD is GOOD.

  23. Wow…in this scripture you can see the different reactions of friends and familly. You would think it would be flipped the other way, the wife supportive and the friends to being confrontational. How would you like your friends to be supportive to the extent they visit for seven days and seven nights, and mourned with you without one word spoken to you. But, they recognized the pain and ancquish you had, and prayed.

    So, whenever I’m in trouble I could use a few friends like this, who will pray with me and intercede for me. “But”…I believe and hope, my wife would also be included in my intercession.

    9 Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die.

    13 So they sat down with him upon the ground seven days and seven nights, and none spake a word unto him: for they saw that his grief was very great.

    “Be Church”…iwork…igive…ipray…ireap…………….

  24. Whoaaaahh job’s wife had a mouth on her. I could not talk to my husband like she did job was in alot of pain …and was having severe pain. But never gave up on God. He is an awsome wonder. I suffer sometimes and dont always understand why the suffering happened but I dont make my husband suffer too.thank you Lord for keeping our relationship strong with Jesus in the picture and we will enjoy suffering cause that means God is stronger than any suffering could ever be.
    devil you cant take us down! !!!

  25. 2:11-13 To Communicate, Listen
    Now when Job’s three friends heard of all this adversity that had come upon him, each one came from his own place….For they had made an appointment together to come and mourn with him , and to comfort him. And when they raised their eyes from afar , and did not recognize him, they lifted their voices and wept ; and each one tore his rove and
    sprinkled dust on his head toward heaven .So They sat down with him on the ground seven days and seven nights, and no one spoke a word to him, for theysaw that his grief was very great.

  27. No matter your situations and what people tell you, you should do.. Keep the Faith, and let God help you through troubling situations.

  28. 3 And the Lord said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? and still he holdeth fast his integrity, although thou movedst me against him, to destroy him without cause.

    4 And Satan answered the Lord, and said, Skin for skin, yea, all that a man hath will he give for his life.

    5 But put forth thine hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh, and he will curse thee to thy face.

    6 And the Lord said unto Satan, Behold, he is in thine hand; but save his life.

    God put Job in a position were either he could be a quitter and fail this spiritual test or he could rise up and be a overcomer. Satan tried to put the squeeze on Job and destroy his body but as Job said later in Job 19:26 American King James Version
    And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God.

    Job was determined not to let anything stop him from holding his integrity he was a overcomer…

  29. 3 And the Lord said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? and still he holdeth fast his integrity, although thou movedst me against him, to destroy him without cause.

    Integrity takes a lifetime to build. Be wise in how you respond to life. One decision you make though it may not define who you are it can mark your reputation and future.

  30. 11 Now when Job’s three friends heard of all this evil that was come upon him, they came every one from his own place; Eliphaz the Temanite, and Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite: for they had made an appointment together to come to mourn with him and to comfort him.

    12 And when they lifted up their eyes afar off, and knew him not, they lifted up their voice, and wept; and they rent every one his mantle, and sprinkled dust upon their heads toward heaven.

    13 So they sat down with him upon the ground seven days and seven nights, and none spake a word unto him: for they saw that his grief was very great.

    At this point in the story we don’t know much about his friends, but we know that they must have some high significance because it lists names and lineage. In this portion of the text we find that his friends could not distinguish Job when they saw him. These friends must have been around Job for a while because who else would sit on the ground for a week without talking.

  31. Job hasn’t questioned God as to why all these things are happening to him. Not even his wife convinced him to question God.

    Job accepted all that happened to him, he knew he was blessed , so far his wife spoke out in desperation and Job didn’t allow her to speak negative about God. All that devil did to Job only made him stronger.

    He had his friends support and needed his wife’s support as well.

    The devil wants to take over our City and destroy our families, the devil is a lie no matter how much he wants to destroy the more Pentecostals will praise and worship the Lord. No matter what that devil is defeated no matter the test he is under my feet. Thank you for your mercy Lord.

  32. Jobs freinds came to him to comfort him in his time of grief. It is good to have someone with you when you are in a time greiving.

  33. 13 So they sat down with him upon the ground seven days and seven nights, and none spake a word unto him: for they saw that his grief was very great.

    Sometimes I too have found the only thing I can do is sit quietly, and be there for my friends when they are grieved.

    I have heard many people say that they understood Job and had their Job expierence… I doubt it. Job has lost everything except his land, 4 beat up hands, and a nagging wife, who is telling him to DIE. While we might be able to sympathise with someone, we rarely can ever say that we know how they feel, or that we have or are walking the exact same thing, especially when it comes to Job.

    The thing to remember is that Job never lost his integrety. The Bible tells us in the new testiment, that the toungue is the most unruley member, yet in verse 10 we are told that Job never sinner with his lips.

  34. 10 But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips.

    11 Now when Job’s three friends heard of all this evil that was come upon him, they came every one from his own place; Eliphaz the Temanite, and Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite: for they had made an appointment together to come to mourn with him and to comfort him.

    To things that stood out to me from this chapter. First Job was a great example of being priest if his home. As head of the household his relationship with God was one that showed his full trust in the Lord. And knew when he needed to stand up with authority and take on the lead and correct his family. He corrected his wife, he didn’t abuse her or diminished her, but rather clarified to her the situation maintained his posture of reverence and worship to God and showed his wife that in all things they should praise and worship the Lord. The second was the attitude of his friends. They went there to comfort him. It is good to sorround yourself with people that are gonna shine the light to you in a time of need. Sometimes they don’t have to say a word but just show that I am here with you. I hurt and I pray with you.

  35. Job had others going against him, but he knew what God wad going to do. If though we don’t always understand where God is going, we should trust him because it always lead to another level.

  36. Job’s wife had little faith, wanted him to just forget about God and curse him. Job told her we should praise God in the good and bad! Our advesaries will always try to bring us down down abd discourage us but we have to remember the battle has already been won!
