Job 26:1



1 But Job ['Iyowb] answered [`anah] and said ['amar], KJV-Interlinear



1 Then Job responded, NASB



The three friends have had their say. They have nothing further to add to their side of the debate. You get the feeling that there must have been a period of silence in which everyone just sat there looking at each other.


And so it is with those who really have nothing to add to the welfare of society. They talk and talk and talk and talk. They do not listen, and they are not interested in anything anyone else has to say anyway. Spiritually deficient people have their minds made up and that is all that matters.


And then, just as anything with limited energy, they run out of gas. They spend all of their energy and then they have nothing, which is exactly what they have been giving all along - nothing.


They have their own agenda, but their words have no power, no strength, no wisdom.


This is true for humanity, and it will be true for Satan one day. He just happens to have a great deal more criticism to spend and more time through history, than man does. But he will run out too.


Job will take center stage and rebuke them, and specifically Bildad, in short order, for their lack of empathy, and lack of wisdom. After all, why did they come to visit Job in the first place?


Their sympathy and support soon changed to criticism, accusation, and conviction. And they were relentless in their effort. And they were relentless while looking straight at Job who was suffering with tremendous physical distress.


When you come across a person who has been severely injured in a car accident, do you first begin to scold them? There are words for people like that. I think they begin with the letter 'b.'


Bildad's closing remarks were brief, and so Jobs opening rebuke will be brief.


And then Job will launch into a phenomenal discourse of truth, which will continue for the next six chapters. And it is Job who is severely sick here, not them.
