JOB FACED LOSS OF ALL THINGS AND FRIENDS WHO BECAME A BYWORD OF IGNORANCE AND PREJUDICE BASED ON ENVY!!!!!!
Job 17:3-6, 8-10. (NIVUK) “Give me, O God, the pledge you demand. Who else will put up security for me? You have closed their minds to understanding; therefore you will not let them triumph. If anyone denounces their friends for reward, the eyes of their children will fail. ‘God has made me a byword to everyone, a man in whose face people spit.”
THE RESULT: Job 17:8-10. UK (NIVUK) “The upright are appalled at this; the innocent are aroused against the ungodly. Nevertheless, the righteous will hold to their ways, and those with clean hands will grow stronger. ‘But come on, all of you, try again! I will not find a wise man among you. My days have passed, my plans are shattered. Yet the desires of my heart turn night into day; in the face of the darkness light is near.”
