day 19 - Bible in a Year

today's reading: JOB 1:1-4:21 (I didn't realize Job came right after the story of Joseph)


  • Job 1: 1THERE WAS a man in the land of Uz whose name was Job; and that man was blameless and upright, and one who [reverently] feared God and abstained from and shunned evil [because it was wrong].
  • Job 1:21And said, Naked (without possessions) came I [into this world] from my mother's womb, and naked (without possessions) shall I depart. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; blessed (praised and magnified in worship) be the name of the Lord!
  • Job 2:10But he said to her, You speak as one of the impious and foolish women would speak. What? Shall we accept [only] good at the hand of God and shall we not accept [also] misfortune and what is of a bad nature? In [spite of] all this, Job did not sin with his lips.
  • -seems that Job started on a path of glorifying God in the midst of trouble, then it gets the best of him and he goes on to rue the day he was born, although that in itself is in essence saying God made a mistake and doesn't know what He is doing.
