Job 14-16

Job (continued): Man is born lowly, what can You really expect from one? Also, we do not restore ourselves like plants who can live as long as the root survives. Your wrath consumes us completely.

Eliphaz: Don’t speak empty foolishness! Who are you to speak of wisdom and knowledge, especially before God? The heavens are foolish compared to Him, let alone a sinful one like you. Let me teach you known wisdom: the wicked man is completely destroyed because of his wickedness.

Job: Easy for all of you to say, you’re not suffering. Whether I speak my words or not, I suffer. God has done all of these horrible things to me. But all of this is witnessed before Him, even as you scorn me for wanting to discuss with Him as I would do with any other man who had wronged me.
