February 18, 2016: Daily Bible Reading Commentary for Job 15-16
Click here for the reading
Commentary: The second round of speeches begins, once again, with Eliphaz. Eliphaz’s message is harsh and offers no comfort, sympathy, or consolation of Job, who, in Eliphaz’s eyes, is being stubborn by refusing to repent. Job’s response is quite depressing. Recording the suffering of Job reminds us that we are not alone in our suffering and that we are never abandoned by the Lord.
Focus Verses: 15:17-18 We often turn to Job as a reminder that others have also suffered for God, but have you ever compared yourself to Job’s friends? Eliphaz is making a judgement of Job without knowing everything. How judgmental are you? Are your judgments always correct?
