Job 24:1-26:7

As Job tries to make sense of his suffering, another miserable comforter, Bildad, puts in another two cents worth of non-help.

Job 22:1-23:12

Job's "miserable comforter" Eliphaz is back, to remind suffering Job how wicked he must be, that he should be suffering so much. And, poor Job begins to despair… "Where is God?"

Job 20:1-22:2

Job wrestles with the age-old question: Why do the wicked seem to prosper, and the righteous suffer? But look beyond the present to see their end!

Job 18:1-20:3

One of Job's "miserable comforters," Bildad the Shuhite, offers some more pious platitudes which do not help poor suffering Job. And in response, Job can only sigh out this great statement, "I know that my Redeemer lives!"

Job 16:1-17:16

Suffering Job answers his miserable comforters in the anguish of his situation, trying to defend himself before God. But he finally concludes that his only hope of anything good is in God alone.

Job 13:1-15:35

Through his suffering, Job is forced to learn many things about God, and also about himself: that as good as he may have behaved, he is still a guilty sinner in need of redemption.

Job 11:1-13:4

Now we hear from Job's third friend, another miserable comforter, a legalist named Zophar, whose remarks are more cutting and harder to bear than even those of the first two men.

Job 9:1-10:22

Job cries out in his misery, hoping for an arbiter, or a mediator, between himself and God. He needed Jesus! He is the one mediator between God and Man.

Job 6:16-8:22

Poor sick Job must endure the arrows of accusation from well-meaning but insensitive friends. Eliphaz punches Job with questions, then crude Bildad takes a turn at it.

Job 5:7-6:15

Eliphaz continues his judgmental tirade against suffering Job, and Job responds saying that he is making a just complaint, because of his righteous life. Job will soon be shown that he is not as righteous as he thinks.

Job 4:1-5:7

Job's friend Eliphaz starts in on poor suffering Job, saying the result of Job's trouble was his hidden sin, because, he thought, "who, being innocent, ever suffered?"
