Job 36:13-14



13 But the hypocrites [chaneph] in heart [leb] heap up [suwm] wrath ['aph]: they cry [shava`] not when he bindeth ['acar] them.

14 They [nephesh] die [muwth] in youth [no`ar], and their life [chay] is among the unclean [qadesh]. KJV-Interlinear



13 'But the godless in heart lay up anger; They do not cry for help when He binds them. 14 'They die in youth, And their life perishes among the cult prostitutes. NASB



Elihu has now outlined three classes of people. Those who slip into sin, but repent when God imposes disciplinary measures against them. They return to Gods methods of living and thereby benefit from the blessings which accrue to truth.


Then there are those who slip into sin and remain there. They might call upon God for the moment, but they immediately return to their sinful ways when pressure is removed from their life. They would not be benefited by the imposition of corrective measures in their life, and thus they are sooner or later cut off from life at Gods discretion.


And then there is a third class of people who slip into sin and remain there in stubbornness. They do not call upon God, but would rather complain, and complain with greater degrees of rage against anyone and everyone. They will not be benefited by discipline either. And they only heap up more and more anger and rage into their lives.


The first group is where anyone who is positive toward God, will find themselves from time to time in their life. This is a natural place to be, and the best place to be for sinful man. There is always a way out when one confesses and repents their ways with a genuine attitude for attaining change in their life.


The second group is made up of hypocrites. They call upon God only to gain immediate relief. They care nothing for God or their spiritual life, but they know enough to know that they can get out of trouble in life when they call on God from time to time, or when it is convenient for them.


Their intentions toward God are insincere. They are dishonest and call only out of necessity. God is a genie in a sense, and means nothing more to them.


The last group is the worst of the groups. They care nothing for God, the one true God. They may place their trust in false gods, or in the workings of this world. They expect that they are owed everything and need not repay even courtesy for courtesy. They are the selfish of the selfish.


Their lives heap up frustration after frustration. And this is true even if they have some semblance of success in life. Things do not satisfy them. There will never be enough. The content of their soul lacks capacity for life and the lack of capacity means a lack of the resources that support contentment.


The very wealthy can fall into this trap just as can the very poor. Continued rejection of truth leaves an accumulation of emotional and mental stresses that become too great to handle after a certain period of time.

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.
