Job 29:11



11 When the ear ['ozen] heard [shama`] me, then it blessed ['ashar] me; and when the eye [`ayin] saw [ra'ah] me, it gave witness [`uwd] to me: KJV-Interlinear



11 'For when the ear heard, it called me blessed; And when the eye saw, it gave witness of me, NASB



We are progressing through these verses slowly for one reason only, and that is to present a description of the only person in history who was good. Jesus Christ being the only exception, of course.


Job was wealthy and blessed with a large family. Job was wise beyond his generation. Job was benevolent, and gave of himself unselfishly. He was a judge and rendered fair treatment to everyone.


In the previous verses, we saw his social status and how he was greatly respected by those in the upper classes. In the next few verses, we will see that Job was regarded highly by those who were of the more common folk of society.


But before we continue, we need to know where this is all heading.


Job is generally known for his suffering, but there is far more to this book than just perseverance and patience. Job's inner resources and mental attitude were formed by the doctrine which he learned, accepted and applied to his daily life.


Most folks learn doctrine or know of its principles, but they do not accept them into their daily lives, and that is the big difference between why a person is successful in their spiritual life, or not successful.


Note one more thing. Job is probably one of the greatest people of human history, and yet you will not find him studied in the school history books, nor anywhere else except for the Bible. Not even Solomon in all of his glory, wealth, and wisdom can match Jobs daily spiritual accomplishments.


The greatness of Jobs life is not in the blessings he received from God, but in the doctrine he accepted into his soul.


Job was well known in his day. At the end of this book we will see just how well thought of he really was. His three friends missed the point of his life completely when they tried to simplify his suffering to some hidden guilt, when there was never any evidence of his being a sinner.


When people heard Jobs words, they stood in silent awe of his comments. When they saw his actions, they looked at him with great respect.


Rich or poor, young or old, all knew of and respected Job as a man of God. Job was a phenomenal person, the likes of which the world had never ever seen until the birth of Jesus, nor even since Jesus' time. Our current day certainly has no one who can fill his shoes.
