Job developed a demanding spirit Job 101-3 I
loathe my very life therefore I will give free
rein to my complaint and speak out in the
bitterness of my soul. I will say to God Do not
condemn me, but tell me what charges you have
against me. Does it please you to oppress me, to
spurn the work of your hands, while you smile on
the schemes of the wicked?

indeed you would exalt yourselves above me and
use my humiliation against me, then know that God
has wronged me and drawn his net around me.
Though I cry, Ive been wronged! I get no
response though I call for help, there is no
justice.

answered Job out of the storm. He said 2Who is
this that darkens my counsel with words without
knowledge? 3Brace yourself like a man I will
question you, and you shall answer me. 4Where
were you when I laid the earths foundation?
Tell me, if you understand. 5Who marked off its
dimensions? Surely you know! Who stretched a
measuring line across it? 6On what were its
footings set, or who laid its cornerstone 7while
the morning stars sang together and all the
angels shouted for joy? 8Who shut up the sea
behind doors when it burst forth from the womb,
9when I made the clouds its garment and wrapped
it in thick darkness, 10when I fixed limits for
it and set its doors and bars in place, 11when I
said, This far you may come and no farther here
is where your proud waves halt?

in the recesses of the deep? 17Have the gates of
death been shown to you? Have you seen the gates
of the shadow of death? 18Have you comprehended
the vast expanses of the earth? Tell me, if you
know all this.

constellations in their seasons or lead out the
Bear with its cubs? 33Do you know the laws of
the heavens? Can you set up Gods dominion over
the earth? 34Can you raise your voice to the
clouds and cover yourself with a flood of water?
35Do you send the lightning bolts on their way?
Do they report to you, Here we are? 36Who
endowed the heart with wisdom or gave
understanding to the mind? 37Who has the wisdom
to count the clouds? Who can tip over the water
jars of the heavens 38when the dust becomes hard
and the clods of earth stick together?

38
Job 421-6 Jobs response 1Then Job replied to
the LORD 2I know that you can do all things no
plan of yours can be thwarted. 3You asked, Who
is this that obscures my counsel without
knowledge? Surely I spoke of things I did not
understand, things too wonderful for me to know.
4You said, Listen now, and I will speak I will
question you, and you shall answer me. 5My ears
had heard of you but now my eyes have seen
you. 6Therefore I despise myself and repent in
dust and ashes.

Job 4210-17 Gods restoration of Job
40
Job 4210-17 Gods restoration of Job 10After
Job had prayed for his friends, the LORD made him
prosperous again and gave him twice as much as he
had before. 11All his brothers and sisters and
everyone who had known him before came and ate
with him in his house. They comforted and
consoled him over all the trouble the LORD had
brought upon him, and each one gave him a piece
of silver and a gold ring. 12The LORD blessed
the latter part of Jobs life more than the
first. He had fourteen thousand sheep, six
thousand camels, a thousand yoke of oxen and a
thousand donkeys. 13And he also had seven sons
and three daughters. 14The first daughter he
named Jemimah, the second Keziah and the third
Keren-Happuch. 15Nowhere in all the land were
there found women as beautiful as Jobs
daughters, and their father granted them an
inheritance along with their brothers. 16After
this, Job lived a hundred and forty years he saw
his children and their children to the fourth
generation. 17And so he died, old and full of
years.

Hebrews 127-11 7Endure hardship as discipline
God is treating you as sons. For what son is not
disciplined by his father? 8If you are not
disciplined (and everyone undergoes discipline),
then you are illegitimate children and not true
sons. 9Moreover, we have all had human fathers
who disciplined us and we respected them for it.
How much more should we submit to the Father of
our spirits and live! 10Our fathers disciplined
us for a little while as they thought best but
God disciplines us for our good, that we may
share in his holiness. 11No discipline seems
pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on,
however, it produces a harvest of righteousness
and peace for those who have been trained by it.

50
Romans 822-25 22We know that the whole creation
has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth
right up to the present time. 23Not only so, but
we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the
Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our
adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies.
24For in this hope we were saved. But hope that
is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what
he already has? 25But if we hope for what we do
not yet have, we wait for it patiently.
51
Revelation 211-7 1Then I saw a new heaven and a
new earth, for the first heaven and the first
earth had passed away, and there was no longer
any sea. 2I saw the Holy City, the new
Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God,
prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her
husband. 3And I heard a loud voice from the
throne saying, Now the dwelling of God is with
men, and he will live with them. They will be
his people, and God himself will be with them and
be their God. 4He will wipe every tear from
their eyes. There will be no more death or
mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of
things has passed away. 5He who was seated on
the throne said, I am making everything new!
Then he said, Write this down, for these words
are trustworthy and true. 6He said to me It
is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the
Beginning and the End. To him who is thirsty I
will give to drink without cost from the spring
of the water of life. 7He who overcomes will
inherit all this, and I will be his God and he
will be my son.
