Job 10:13-14



13 And these things hast thou hid [tsaphan] in thine heart [lebab]: I know [yada`] that this is with thee.

14 If I sin [chata'], then thou markest [shamar] me, and thou wilt not acquit [naqah] me from mine iniquity [`avon]. KJV-Interlinear



13 'Yet these things Thou hast concealed in Thy heart; I know that this is within Thee: 14 If I sin, then Thou wouldst take note of me, And wouldst not acquit me of my guilt. NASB



All of these things. All of these things just mentioned and referred to in the prior chapters. All of these things, which result in historical events, God has known about since eternity past.


God has kept them in His knowledge, because it was God who invented and created all things, and caused all things to come into existence. It is God who has looked down through time and has seen all things, all thoughts, all motivations, all decisions, all actions of man and angels, and every living creature, and actions of nature.


Eccl. 3:11

11 He has made everything appropriate in its time. He has also set eternity in their heart, yet so that man will not find out the work which God has done from the beginning even to the end. NASB


The knowledge of God is so vast, that it spans time from eternity past to eternity future. Gods knowledge and wisdom has no beginning, and no end, and He knows all of it. Figure that one out if you can.


Man cannot possible figure out all that God has designed, and especially the infinite interactions of all components, of all relationships of the living and not, in this world, past, present and future.


It is this vast intent of God that Job finds himself with bewilderment. Man cannot possibly figure it all out. Even when people maintain their fellowship and advance within their spiritual life, Gods wisdom is beyond them.


God maintains a close scorecard on us all. He monitors each of our lives and tracks each and every sin. Nothing gets by God. He never turns His head away on even the smallest of infractions, but holds us accountable for every thought, every improper desire, every decision, every action, even of the tiniest bit, in our life.


And, God will not acquit, not look away, not disregard any infraction of His perfect standards of righteousness and demands of justice. Not for the worst of people who ever lived, not for the wickedest of people, not for the good and decent people, not even for the spiritually mature.


All who fail, fail. God applies His standards equally to all. There are no exceptions.


Do not look at those who are obviously evil, and think that they are getting away with their deeds. Don't think that anyone who celebrates their evil successes, are celebrating victory. Wicked people all around the world, celebrate themselves.


Job is looking at life as most people do, with confusion. How can God, who designed and created this entire universe, even the complexities of the human anatomy, simply allow suffering to occur?


Job has studied the scriptures all his life. He has observed the required offerings and sacrifices. He understands their purpose. He has incorporated all of Gods mandates into his daily life. Job has seen the evils of the world. Job is aware of the complexities of life. He knows that no human being is perfect, and that some are more evil than others. He knows that life generally can be unfair.


Job is certain that he has done nothing to cause all of this suffering to fall on himself. He knows that he is a sinner as is all of humanity, but Job has observed the principles of the confession sacrifice which guarantees forgiveness of sin.


Job knows that the principles that have been expressed by his friends, that the good are blessed and the evil are cursed, are true principles, but he is also convinced that they are being applied, especially the latter part, to him incorrectly.
