The Bible In A Year: Day 58

Job 25-28
Psalm 55

Bildad gets his shot at a third speech, and it’s fairly short. He still refuses to accept Job’s claims of innocence. Job replies in chapter 26 and you can tell he’s really getting tired of his friends’ “encouraging” words. He spends this portion of his response speaking about the awesome power and majesty of God.

Job starts out the next portion of his discourse by swearing an oath before God that he is truly innocent and calls a curse upon his enemies. He then goes into a poetic discourse on wisdom and how it can only truly be found by man if God reveals it to him, because the wisdom of mankind is folly compared to God.

The fear of God is the highest good—not pronouncing verdicts or summoning God to account for what takes place. One must not expect to find wisdom different from this.

Saint John Chrysostom

Tomorrow’s readings:
Numbers 14
Job 29-30
Psalm 56
Mark 13:1-8
