Job 24-28

  • 24:1-25 – Job explains that often, throughout life, the poor have difficulties and the wicked reap the benefit. He seems to explain that God doesn’t seem to be watching, but in the end he explains that everyone is brought low in the end.
  • 25:1-6 – Bildad quickly retorts that God is simply greater than humans and cannot be compared.
  • 26:1-6 – Here Job resolves not to turn his back on God, but to remain faithful.
  • 27:7-23 – Here Job lays out how he hopes his enemies are treated in the end.
  • 28:1-28 – This section of poetry elaborates on the extent of God’s wisdom. It seems like an odd insertion and is stuck between two sections where “Job takes up his discourse” so it seems odd that this too would be him speaking.
