Job 27

1 Moreover Job continued his parable, and said,

As God liveth, who hath taken away my judgment; and the Almighty, who hath vexed my soul;

All the while my breath is in me, and the spirit of God is in my nostrils;

My lips shall not speak wickedness, nor my tongue utter deceit.

God forbid that I should justify you: till I die I will not remove mine integrity from me.

My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go: my heart shall not reproach me so long as I live.

Let mine enemy be as the wicked, and he that riseth up against me as the unrighteous.

For what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he hath gained, when God taketh away his soul?

Will God hear his cry when trouble cometh upon him?

10 Will he delight himself in the Almighty? will he always call upon God?

11 I will teach you by the hand of God: that which is with the Almighty will I not conceal.

12 Behold, all ye yourselves have seen it; why then are ye thus altogether vain?

13 This is the portion of a wicked man with God, and the heritage of oppressors, which they shall receive of the Almighty.

14 If his children be multiplied, it is for the sword: and his offspring shall not be satisfied with bread.

15 Those that remain of him shall be buried in death: and his widows shall not weep.

16 Though he heap up silver as the dust, and prepare raiment as the clay;

17 He may prepare it, but the just shall put it on, and the innocent shall divide the silver.

18 He buildeth his house as a moth, and as a booth that the keeper maketh.

19 The rich man shall lie down, but he shall not be gathered: he openeth his eyes, and he is not.

20 Terrors take hold on him as waters, a tempest stealeth him away in the night.

21 The east wind carrieth him away, and he departeth: and as a storm hurleth him out of his place.

22 For God shall cast upon him, and not spare: he would fain flee out of his hand.

23 Men shall clap their hands at him, and shall hiss him out of his place.

20 thoughts on “Job Chapter 27

  1. Job had about enough of his friends. He tells them he will NOT believe his circumstances and his troubles are not as big as his GOD. He reminds them of all the things they told him and how all he needed was a word of love and encouragement. He repeats what will happen to the wicked.

    16 Though he heap up silver as the dust, and prepare raiment as the clay;

    17 He may prepare it, but the just shall put it on, and the innocent shall divide the silver.

    The Just will reap from the work of the wicked at the end. All they broke their backs doing will finished in the hands of the just. Are you ready to reap even what you have not sowed?????

  2. Job 27:3-6 KJV

    All the while my breath is in me, and the spirit of God is in my nostrils; My lips shall not speak wickedness, nor my tongue utter deceit. God forbid that I should justify you: till I die I will not remove mine integrity from me. My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go: my heart shall not reproach me so long as I live. Praise the Lord! I love how Job is standing on what he knows, truly a man of integrity. Despite the pain, the sufferings, the loss, Job shows his relationship with God is real!!! Now that is a real Christian, that was developed daily,

  3. vs. 19-23 The rich man shall lie down, but he shall not be gathered: he openeth eyes his eyes and he is not.
    20″ Terrors take hold on him as waters, a tempest stealeth him away in the night.
    v21″as a storm hurleth him out of his place.”
    v22 For GOD shall cast upon him, and not spare: he would fain flee out of his hand.
    v23 Men shall chap their hands at him, and shall hiss him out his hand.

    We must say like Paul said,” I know in whom I believed.” He kept the faith.
    Like the wiseman we must build upon the rock and make the LORD our foundation, and not on a foundation of ( I, me , myself. Lk.12-16-21
    But build upon that unmovable rock JESUS
    so that when the storms of life come our way, we won’t be swept away, but be
    supported an secure.
    ” Stand By Me LORD.”

  4. THE HYPOCRITE’S HOPE

    8 For what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he hath gained, when God taketh away his soul?

    HYPOCRITE – 1: a person who puts on a false appearance of virtue or religion 2: a person who acts in contradiction to his or her stated beliefs or feelings.

    The temptation to play the game, to roll the dice to take a chance on, to risk it all. This is Job’s question. So you win the lottery, now what? What have you lost? So, you prove you point, now what?

    We must reconsider our motives! If winning something causes me to lose something of greater value, is it really a win?

    The question we must ask ourselves is “WIll GOD rejoice in this VICTORY”? Everything we do and everything we are for should be to the GLORY of GOD not man, including ourselves. The HYPOCRITE puts on a false appearance of a GODLY person, but on the inside, their motives are selfish, self-serving, and proud.

    BE REAL!
    BE HONEST!
    BE SINCERE!

    THE HYPOCRITE’S HOPE – Revealed by JESUS

    Mark 8:34 And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

    35 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it.

    36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

    37 Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

    Unfortunately there are people that use the name of JESUS for personal gain, position, power or prosperity. However the end is HOPELESSNESS.

  5. Only what is done for God will last forever. Riches cannot be trusted in, and material possessions will fade away.

    Jesus said store up your treasure in heaven where moth and rust doth not corrupt.

  6. This chapter illustrates steadfastness. Job professed he was standing his ground, and that he would not accept their allegations. All will stand for something; however a wise person understands ones eternity may just be at stake. May the good Lord Bless you all in Jesus name, Amen

    God Does not hear the hypocrite

    Hypocrite

    A hypocrite is a person who pretends to have certain beliefs, attitudes or feelings when they really do not. (noun)
    An example of a hypocrite is a person who says they care about the environment, but are constantly littering.

    There are those who sit in church acting the part… These are called tares.

    What are we to do with the tares?

    But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn. (Matthew 13:29, 30 KJV)

    LET THE TARES AND WHEAT GROW TOGETHER, AND GOD WILL SEPERATE THE TWO.

  8. Verse 8 shows us there is no gain to being a hypocrite. All that God asks of us is that we would love him with all our heart soul mind and strength and be real. After we do that then we will have real spiritual gain.

  9. The beginning of this chapter talks about Job’s defense against the false accusations that are coming against him. He stands firm and holds fast to his integrity. We should be like Job and stand firm and speak our victory. Many people can talk their way right out of a blessing by speaking negative. The end of verses 1-6 reads “I’m holding fast to my integrity and not loosening my grip—and, believe me, I’ll never regret it.” Hold onto Jesus and never turn back!

  10. Job explains in detail that he is innocent and didn’t commit sin to bring upon himself God’s punishment. He took the time to explain what happens to wicked people, God will simply ignore mercy to the wicked.

  11. 6 My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go: my heart shall not reproach me so long as I live.

    Don’t let anything come between you and the righteousness God has given to you. No matter what comes our way we are still children of the almighty God, and his righteousness is everlasting. Righteousness is what allows us to be in the presen e of God.

  12. Verse 4 talks about what Job is or is not going to say. We really need to guard our lips/words. Think about service tonight. We could be prophesying our own future with our speaking. It happened with Pharo and the pleagues. Do you really want what you are speaking?

  13. Vs 2-6
    Job is holding on to the favor of the Almighty!

    Reminds me of the song “God favored Me”

    Verse 3 They whispered, conspired, they told their lies (God favors me) My character, my integrity, my faith in God (He favors me) Will not fall, will not bend, wont comprimise(God favors me) I speak life and prosperity and I speak health (God favors me)

  14. 5 God forbid that I should justify you: till I die I will not remove mine integrity from me.

    6 My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go: my heart shall not reproach me so long as I live.

    And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him. For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God. (1 John 3:19-21 KJV)

    And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. (John 8:32 KJV)

    Even when the world seems against you, standing on truth can keep us grounded and free us from the devil’s tool of condemnation. When our confidence is in God, we need not be shaken by anyone or anything.

    There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. (Romans 8:1 KJV)

    Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:35-39 KJV)

  15. 4 My lips shall not speak wickedness, nor my tongue utter deceit.
    5 God forbid that I should justify you: till I die I will not remove mine integrity from me.

    As it has been said , if you don’t think you know what someone said don’t say it!

  16. 5 God forbid that I should justify you: till I die I will not remove mine integrity from me.
    6 My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go: my heart shall not reproach me so long as I live.

    Why is it that the church feels the need to fight to defend herself against one another, and against the world? Job here shows us how sometimes it is best to not fight back, with words that ar enot going to be heard anyways, but to just carry on in silence. Jesus when he was stood before the courts and was on trial,”.. answered not a word,” is what His word tells us. So why do we feel that we are any better than Job? Jesus?

    If we don’t retalliate, or fight back with words, later after it is all over we will have no appologies to make with others for the things we said….

  17. The “breath of God” (Job 27:3) refers to the force that gives life itself, the Creator who literally breathes life into the first human being in Gen 2:7
    “the LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.” With his breath, God both destroys and sustains (Job 4:9; 33:4). His enlivening breath is the only thing that human hearts beating (Job 34:14-15). Job proclaims in no certain terms that as long as he is living, as long as “the breath of God” is in his “nostrils,” he will not admit that his “friends” are right an that he deserves his pain. Jesus suffered for the sins of humanity, in order to fulfil the law, and offer us new promises and the gift of His Holy Ghost. Job too suffers without sin, but after this wilderness (remember Jesus too was in the wilderness for 40 days and 40 nights and was also tempted by the enemy), God Will is for His creation to be glorify Him with their free will. Only God has the ability to restore Himself greater than the moment the enemy thought He was down. In Ezekiel 37 God asked Ezekiel if the bones in the valley of bones could live? Ezekiel, with a natural mind says, no. God corrects him, for God can do anything, if he can create Adam out of dust, and Eve out of a rib, then he can make old dry bones come back to life. Jesus comes later to do miracles consisting of bringing the dead to life. When God is ready for us to come home we will be called out of our fleshly vehicle, and live with Him forever. God always confirms His word, over and over. Trust God in everything, he can do anything at anytime he wants to with the most mind blowing ways, like with a simple breath.

  18. 3 All the while my breath is in me, and the spirit of God is in my nostrils;

    4 My lips shall not speak wickedness, nor my tongue utter deceit.

    5 God forbid that I should justify you: till I die I will not remove mine integrity from me.

    6 My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go: my heart shall not reproach me so long as I live.

    Oh that we may be as Job steadfast and commuted to the Lord being faithful in good and in bad times.

  19. 5 God forbid that I should justify you: till I die I will not remove mine integrity from me.
    6 My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go: my heart shall not reproach me so long as I live.
    Throughout the chapters previously read, Job continues to shows us the difference between what should be the ATTITUDES of a child of GOD and the attitudes of the rebellious creation of GOD.
    He also gives a heads up on the Blessing of being a child of GOD (a person that obeys GOD’S WORD) and consequence of being part of the rebellious creation of GOD. ( a person that does not obey GOD’S WORD)
    16 Though he heap up silver as the dust, and prepare raiment as the clay;
    17 He may prepare it, but the just shall put it on, and the innocent shall divide the silver.
    THANK YOU JESUS CHRIST!!!!

  20. Job 27

    1 Moreover Job continued his parable, and said,

    2 As God liveth, who hath taken away my judgment; and the Almighty, who hath vexed my soul;

    3 All the while my breath is in me, and the spirit of God is in my nostrils;

    4 My lips shall not speak wickedness, nor my tongue utter deceit.

    5 God forbid that I should justify you: till I die I will not remove mine integrity from me.

    Aún cuando Jobtenia gran sufrimiento y hasta amargura abia en el pero estaba determinado a mi blasfemar no reprochar nada a Dios pues al final el sabia que quien hace iniqudad su fin es de muerte y el sólo el no se justificaría pues el creía plenamente en Dios y tenía puesta su confianza en El
