Job 6:21-23 Empty Job 6:21-23

Job 6:21-23 King James Version (KJV)
21 For now ye are nothing; ye see my casting down, and are afraid.
22 Did I say, Bring unto me? or, Give a reward for me of your substance?
23 Or, Deliver me from the enemy's hand? or, Redeem me from the hand of the mighty?
Job 6:21-23 Good News Translation (GNT)
21 You are like those streams to me,
    you see my fate and draw back in fear.
22 Have I asked you to give me a gift
    or to bribe someone on my behalf
23     or to save me from some enemy or tyrant?

These are my thoughts, please share yours.
21 Job is most likely referring back to the three friends gathered around him telling him how much sin he had to have this happen to him. The words were like empty streams when he was thirsty they were useless he needed better advice and encouragement not to be told how bad he had been. People who are down if even their sin brought them there needed not to be beaten down more but shown love. Job knew he was in a bad spot he did not need them to tell him.
22 Job had not asked them for anything. You think as his friends they would be helping him figure out what to do now to continue his life, they would help him pick up the few pieces that remain and help him go on but they did not ever offer this but just complained to him. It is easy to beat someone down when things are not there way but love is helping them get to somewhere better.

23 Job knew in the back of his mind this was a result of the enemy but the problem with Job was he was making God into his enemy rather than trusting Him thru it. We should know who are enemy is and trust God because He can allow us to overcome.

God gives me a joy to serve Him.
