Job 2:8-9

Post by clark thompson on Fri Feb 20, 2015 8:31 pm

[size=32]Job 2:8-9 King James Version (KJV)[/size]

And he took him a potsherd to scrape himself withal; and he sat down among the ashes.

Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die.

[size=32]Job 2:8-9 Good News Translation (GNT)[/size]

Job went and sat by the garbage dump and took a piece of broken pottery to scrape his sores. His wife said to him, “You are still as faithful as ever, aren't you? Why don't you curse God and die?”

These are my thoughts, please share yours.


8 To go to a garbage dump must have been a way to deal with grief, people often at this time would have sat down on ashes to show grief. A sad state Job was now in, extreme sate of grief was what he was going thru just sitting there scratching himself with pottery to help with the pain.


9 Job’s wife may have known that God could take him but that did not mean what she was saying was good, the devil had kept her around perhaps just for this reason. We need to hold our faith to Him and not what happens to us.

God gives me a joy to serve Him.

Again, an emotion such as grief is illustrated. The Bible does not shy away from human emotion, I love how it makes these people come alive for us and see they were human just like us.
