Job 5:17-18

[size=32]Job 5:17-18 King James Version (KJV)[/size]

17 Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty:

18 For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole.


[size=32]Job 5:17-18 Good News Translation (GNT)[/size]


17 Happy is the person whom God corrects!
    Do not resent it when he rebukes you.
God bandages the wounds he makes;
    his hand hurts you, and his hand heals.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.


17 God correcting us shows that we are His and that He loves us. If God does not correct us then we are not His and need to accept Him as Lord because if He is our Lord then He will correct us. The Lord’s correction is a good thing, we need to see it as such.


18 Anything God brings our way He can take away, anything God bring our way He can get us thru. God allows hurt but He can also bring healing. Sometimes hurt is not a result of God but simply because happens because we are in a fallen world.

God gives me a joy to serve Him.
