BRAGADAYJAH 1269

BRAGADAYJAH 1269
Job calls his Friends. Miserable Comforters.
Then Job answered and said: ”I have heard many such things, miserable comforters are you all. Shall vain words have an end? Or what emboldeneth thee that thou answerest? I also could speak as you do. If your soul were in my soul’s stead. I could heap up words against you and shake my head at you. But I would strengthen you with my mouth and the moving of my lips should assuage your grief. Though I speak, my grief is not assuaged and though I forbear what am I eased? But now he hath made me weary, thou hast made desolation all my company; and thou hast filled me with wrinkles, which is a witness against me; and my leanness rising up in me, bear witness to my face. He teaseth me in his wrath, who hateth me he gnasheth upon me with his teeth. My enemy sharpeneth his eye upon me. They have gaped upon me with their mouth; they have smitten me upon the cheek reproachfully; they have gathered themselves together against me. God has delivered me to the ungodly, and turned me over into the hands of the wicked.

Eliphaz continues to chastise Job
                He hypothesized: “Which wise men have told from their fathers and have not hid it? Unto whom alone the earth was given and no stranger pass among them. The wicked man travaileth in pain all his days and the number of years is hidden from the oppressor. A dreadful sound is in his ears in prosperity the destroyer shall come upon him. He believeth not that he shall return out of darkness, and he is waited for of the sword. He wandereth abroad for bread saying, where is it? He knoweth that the day of darkness is ready at his hand. Trouble and anguish shall make him afraid. They shall prevail against him as a king ready to the battle; for he stretcheth out his hand against God and strengtheneth himself against the Almighty. He runneth upon him even upon his neck; upon the thick bosses of his bucklers, because he covereth his face with his fatness and makes collops of fat on his flanks. And he dwelleth in desolate cities, and in houses which no man inhabiteth; which are ready to become heaps. He shall not be rich neither shall his substance continue. Neither shall he prolong the perfection thereof upon the earth. He shall not depart out of darkness; the flame shall dry up his branches, and by the breath of his mouth shall he go away. Let not him that is deceived trust in vanity; for vanity shall be his recompense. It shall be accomplished before his time, and his branch shall not be given. He shall shake off the unripe grape as the vine, and shall cast off his flower as the olive. For the congregation of hypocrites shall be desolate, and fire shall consume the tabernacles of bribery. They conceive mischief, and bring forth vanity, and their belly prepareth deceit.

BRAGADAYJAH 1267
Eliphaz’s Second Speech. He rebukes Job.
Then answered Eliphaz the Temanite and said; “Should a wise man utter vain knowledge, and fill his belly with the east wind? Should he reason with unprofitable talk, or with speeches wherein he can do no good? Yea thou castest off fear, and restrainest prayer before God. For thy mouth utter thine iniquity, and thou chooseth the tongue of the crafty. Thy own mouth condemn thee, and not I. Thine own lips testify against thee. Art thou the first man that was born? Or wast thou made before the hills? Hast thou heard the secret of God and dost thou restrain wisdom to thyself? What knowest thou that we know not, what understandest thou that is not in us? With us are both the gray headed and very aged men, much older than thy father. Are the consolations of God small with thee? Why dost thy heart carry thee away? And what do thy eyes wink at, that thou turnest thy spirit against God, and letest such words go out of thy mouth? What is man that he should be clean, and he that is born of a woman that he should be righteous? Behold He puttest no trust in his saints, yea the heavens are not clean in His sight. How much more abominable and filthy is man which drinketh iniquity like water? I will show thee; hear me, and that which I have seen I will declare.

BRAGADAYJAH 1266

BRAGADAYJAH 1266
Job continues- He awaits resurrection.
If a man dies shall he live again? All the days of my appointed time I will wait until my change comes. Thou shalt call and I will answer Thee, thou shalt have a desire to the work of thine hands.
For now thou numbereth my steps. And thou not watch over my sins? My transgression is sealed up in a bag, and thou seweth up mine iniquity; and surely the mountain falling cometh to nought, and the rock is removed out of its place. The waters wear the stones; thou washest way the things which grow out of the dust of the earth. And thou destroyeth the hope of man. Thou prevaileth forever against him: and he passeth; thou changeth his countenance and send him away. His son comes to honour and he knoweth it not; and they are brought low; but he perceiveth it not. But his flesh upon him shall have pain. And his soul within him shall mourn.

BRAGADAYJAH 1265
Job Continued: He Awaits Resurrection.
“Man that is born of a woman is of a few days, and is full of trouble. He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down. He fleeth also as a shadow and continueth not. And dost thou open thine eyes upon such a one, and bringeth me into judgement with thee? Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean?  No not one. Seeing his days are determined, the number of his months are with thee thou has appointed his bonds that he cannot pass. Turn from him that he may rest until he has accomplished as a hireling his day. For there is hope of a tree if it be cut down that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease. Though the root thereof wax old in the earth and the stock thereof die in the ground. Yet through the scent of water it will bud and bring forth boughs like a plant. But man dieth and wasteth away; yea man giveth up the ghost and where is he? As the waters fail from the sea and the flood decayeth and dries up, so man lieth down and risest up not again till the heavens be no more they shall rise no more or wake out of their sleep. O that thou wouldest hide me in the grave that thou wouldest keep me secret until thy wrath be past; that thou wouldest appoint a time and remember me!”

Job continues to rebut Zophar
“Hear diligently my speech and my declaration with your ears. Behold now I have ordered my cause; I know that I shall be justified. Who is he that will pleas with me? For now, if I hold my tongue, I shall give up the ghost. Only do not two things unto me, then will I not hide myself from thee. Withdraw thine hand far from me, and let not thy dread make me afraid. Then call Thou and I will answer, or let me speak and answer thou me. How many are my iniquities and sins? Make me to know my transgressions and my sin. Wherefore hideth thou thy face and beholdeth me for thine enemy? Will thou break a leaf driven to and fro? And will thou pursue the dry stubble? For thou writest bitter things against me, and maketh me to possess the iniquities of my youth. Thou puttest my feet also in the stocks and looketh narrowly into all my paths; thou settest a print into the heels of my feet. And he, as a rotten thing consumeth, as a garment that is moth eaten.

BRAGADAYJAH 1263
Jog Continues his Rebuttal
Lo mine eyes have seen all this, my ears have heard and understood it. What ye know the same do I know also. I am not inferior unto you. Surely I would speak to the Almighty, and I desire to reason with God. But ye are forgers of lies; ye are all the physicians of no value. O that you would altogether hold your peace, and it should be your wisdom. Hear now my reasoning and hearken to the pleadings of my lips. Will ye speak wickedly for God? And talk deceitfully for Him? Will ye accept His person, will ye contend for God? Is it good that He should search you out, or as one man mocketh another, do you so mock Him? He will surely reprove you, if ye do secretly accept persons, shall not His excellency make you afraid, and His dread fall upon you? Your remembrance are like unto ashes your bodies, to bodies of clay. Hold your peace, let me alone that I may speak and let come upon me what will. Wherefore do I take my flesh in my teeth and put my life in my hand? Though He slay me yet will I trust in Him. But I will maintain my own ways before him. He also shall be my salvation for a hypocrite shall not come before him.
