Job 21-24 Men are blind to the ways of God
Job and Eliphaz spar off once again. Job understands that God leaves the wicked for a season but one day will call them to account. Eliphaz says you are just as wicked and you know how that turns out. HA! Job says don’t you realize that God has left them here for a reason? They show us the depravity of mankind but the overwhelming patience of God for He is not willing any to perish. [2Peter 3:9] As for me, I will trust Him: he knows the pathway that I take; if he tested me, I would come forth like gold. My foot has held fast to His path; I have kept His way and not turned aside.
In essence, Job is asking Eliphaz if this is true about his life. He is asking us the same question and waiting for our answer. How do you respond?
