Job 1-3

  • 1:1 – “Blameless and upright” is a description very few people in the Bible receive. Noah, before the flood, was described in a similar way.
  • 1:5 – Job even hedged his bets by sacrificing for his children just in case they were sinful without his knowledge.
  • 1:6-12 – Satan challenged God saying that Job was only faithful because God had, until then, protected him and all his things. God disagrees and allows him to torment Job in order to prove his faithfulness.
  • 1:20-22 – After all the turmoil and trauma Job received back to back to back, he grieved but did not curse God like Satan said he would.
  • 2:3-6 – This time God allows Satan to strike Job with any kind of personal illness as long as he doesn’t kill him.
  • 2:9 – This must be what Proverbs warns against when it talks about basically anything being better than living with a quarrelsome wife.
  • 2:10 – It is obviously much easier to receive the good God gives us, but Job reminds us that we can’t expect the good without being willing to receive bad too.
  • 3:3-26 – Job basically wishes he was never born.
