Job 15:12-13



12 Why doth thine heart [leb] carry thee away [laqach]? and what do thy eyes [`ayin] wink at [razam],

13 That thou turnest [shuwb] thy spirit [ruwach] against God ['el], and lettest such words [millah] go out [yatsa'] of thy mouth [peh]? KJV-Interlinear



12 'Why does your heart carry you away? And why do your eyes flash, 13 That you should turn your spirit against God, And allow such words to go out of your mouth? NASB



Eliphaz suggests that Job has turned his heart away from God. And though this is not true, though Job has voiced some complaints because of his affliction, he has not once condemned God, or as Satan had hoped, Job has not cursed God.


Eliphaz's only basis for this attitude, which he perceives in Job, is that Job does not agree with Eliphaz and the other two friends.


However, this does point out a truth with respect to people who do not subscribe to God, to Christ, and to Bible doctrine. Any unbeliever, and any negative believer for that matter, does pursue an anti-God pattern in their life.


There are only two attitudes possible in existence. First is that which is consistent with the legitimate teachings of Word of God, which is our Bible. And the second is everything else.


Even though philosophies may be divided up into four general categories, namely Christianity, all other religions or non-religions, cults, and the occult, there is only one truth, and everything else is a modification of the truth making them lies, or outright lies.


Psa. 73:9

9 They have set their mouth against the heavens, And their tongue parades through the earth. NASB


But no matter what a person thinks, if his thinking pattern lacks consistency with Gods Word, then that person is functioning in opposition to God.


The mouth can only voice the thoughts, which are resident in the mind. You cannot think things, or conjure up beliefs, which you do not know or possess.


God is truth, and if you oppose God, then you obviously oppose truth.


Eliphaz knows a great deal of truth, or at least the concepts of truth. His only problem is in matching them correctly with the facts of reality. Eliphaz is a little rigid, and therefore subjective in his thinking.


One of the great advantages and characteristics of knowing truth, can be found in your being more tolerant, more forgiving, more courteous, more relaxed, and certainly less critical toward others. The mature believer does not have to prove himself, ever.


People who do not subscribe to truth are more agitated, more inordinately competitive, more frantic, and certainly less secure. They have to prove themselves over and over again.


Just because Job will have some harsh words to say concerning various subjects in life, if he is consistent with Gods opinion, then he is not in opposition toward God.


Too often in a debate, people will take offense when you are not politically correct. Too often people will bring up your flaws or failures when arguing with you. These are merely crutches of the weak.


Truth stands on its own and needs no support or propping up. Weakness cannot stand on its own and needs to weave less then original accusations in order to win an argument.


Lies 'wink' at or flirt with everything which is not truth.

End Of Lesson

Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
