March 8, 2018: Daily Bible Reading Commentary for Job 19-20

Click here for the reading


Commentary:  Job is full of complaints in chapter 19.  About what and who is he complaining?  Zophar responds to Job for the second and final time.  He sees Job as arrogant and is convinced that Job is guilty of sinning.  He believed that without repenting, Job could not be redeemed.  If Zophar truly believed that Job’s fate was sealed, it could explain his refusal to make a third speech.

Focus Verses:  120:20-29  What is Zophar’s conclusion at the end of his speech?  It is his final speech to Job.  Why do you think he does not give a third speech?
