Job 1:1-5

Post by clark thompson on Fri Dec 05, 2014 8:48 pm

[size=32]Job 1:1-5 King James Version (KJV)[/size]

1 There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.

And there were born unto him seven sons and three daughters.

His substance also was seven thousand sheep, and three thousand camels, and five hundred yoke of oxen, and five hundred she asses, and a very great household; so that this man was the greatest of all the men of the east.

And his sons went and feasted in their houses, every one his day; and sent and called for their three sisters to eat and to drink with them.

And it was so, when the days of their feasting were gone about, that Job sent and sanctified them, and rose up early in the morning, and offered burnt offerings according to the number of them all: for Job said, It may be that my sons have sinned, and cursed God in their hearts. Thus did Job continually.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

 

1 People do not know exactly where Uz was but people think around the Euphrates where the earlier world was dominated. Job was never a common name people whether this troy actually happened or was just given by God to teach us things, I think it both s true and we should learn from it. This does not mean he was without sin because only Christ was without sin but says that he served the Lord and was made righteous. He had a respect for God, followed His ways and not the ways of the world.

 

2 Big families at that time showed that God had favor for you. It was also uncommon in those days to include daughters. Most things of the time would have just said he had seven sons and some daughters or said he had seven sons not making mention of the daughters.

 

3 This shows his wealth, how God chose to bless him by giving him wealth. Wealth of that day was measure by what you owned not by the money you had because at this time they may have not had money but did things by trade.

 

4 His sons partied everyday; this did not use what God had given them to bless Him they just wasted it. We can be like these sons if we are not careful.

 

5 This shows Job’s righteousness, he did not want to even come close to upsetting God, we often times only do things we are wrong to make them right, Job wanted to make sure that when his family did wrong they were forgiven. We can not save others even if we try in the way Job did, Christ would save others by being a sacrifice for us.
