Job 14:14



14 If a man [geber] die [muwth], shall he live [chayah] again? all the days [yowm] of my appointed time [tsaba'] will I wait [yachal], till my change [chaliyphah] come [bow']. KJV-Interlinear



14 'If a man dies, will he live again? All the days of my struggle I will wait, Until my change comes. NASB



People live in a world where absence of truth is the primary reason for the many distresses we experience in life. Satan is the foundation for all trouble. But, people will pursue wrong beliefs, or false beliefs, or wrongly pursue correct beliefs, and this adds to their stresses in life.


In summary, Job calls all of this, mans struggle in life.


From the beginning of Jobs misery, he has wished for his misery to have never occurred, or that he might never have been born, or that he might have died at an early age so that he would not have to endure such trouble in life. His specific misery and suffering is symbolic of all of the many human miseries that we can experience.


Job has fully expected that he was going to die. Even though his friends offered tantalizing hope to him, for a full recovery should he repent his sins, they had no right to even suggest such a possibility. God is the sovereign of this universe and of life. Only God will decide our fate.


Proposing a hope that does not exist can become just another form of suffering in the form of disappointment or discouragement. Man should be looking toward their spiritual status, and preparation for eternity, not for some improvement in this life.


Life in this world is temporary at best and misery is just another natural phenomenon, like storms, disease, unemployment and so forth.


So Job looks to God, fully expecting that his next stop is not recovery in this life to his former wealth, but his next stop will be in death.


Man will not die in order to live again as he lived in his former life. Once clay is discarded, and shattered into pieces, then is will never be used again.


Job looks to his change, which can refer to two things. The first being physical death where the soul and spirit of the saved person, leaves the physical body, in death, and moves on to Gods secure area awaiting the resurrection.


And the second reference being for the resurrection itself, into a new indestructible body which is made ready for eternal life.
