Paul's instructions were appropriate then, ju…

Job responded to Eliphaz and then to Bildad, having weathered their false accusations and, contrary to their assumptions, demonstrated great knowledge of the almighty God.

We are to be blamed for our sin, but God is gracious through the Gospel…

The trial Job faced broke him, and he expressed a desire for God to vouch for him. Looking at his situation he was unable to see any hope, no light was visible on the horizon. Bildad's second address did nothing to encourage him. Bless the LORD He has sent the Light of the World Jesus to give us a living hope, a pledge of love we receive by faith.V…
 
Job 15:17-16:22.Synopsis: No matter how resourceful a person may be, life proves futile without a relationship with the living God.

Eliphaz supposed Job was responsible for his own suffering, that he was reaping what he had sown. Though well-intentioned, his graceless words were rejected by Job as irrelevant for his case.

James 3 shines a spotlight on the tongues of Christians, that an inconsistency can exist between those who profess to have faith in God coupled with mouths that reveal bitter envy, boasting and cursing.
