February 25, 2016: Daily Bible Reading Commentary for Job 17-18
Click here for the reading
Commentary: Job continues to lament his situation. He is beaten down and tired, receiving little support from his friends, who continue to insist that he must have sinned! Bildad appears insulted by Job’s lament, as he spends most of his chapter speaking of the fate of the wicked.
Focus Verses: 18:2-4 Bildad believes that Job must have sinned against the Lord since he is suffering and appears insulted that Job would insist otherwise. In return, Bildad lashes out at Job. Have you ever behaved as Bildad, believing so strongly that you are right, that you lashed out, never considering that you were wrong? How can you always seek the Lord’s guidance?
