Search The Scriptures —Study 3 – Job 6 and 7. Job’s reply to Eliphaz

Study 3 From the Book of Ephesians is: Job 6 and 7. Job’s reply to Eliphaz798b3-search-the-srciptures

Job is hurt by Eliphaz’s attitude. He had hoped for help, not criticism(6:14). He flings questions at God.

  1. 6:1-30. What does Job’s condition make him long for (a) from God, and (b) from men? What may we learn from his double disappointment?

  2. 7:1-10. By what metaphors does Job describe his present life? 7:11-21. What is the substance of his complaints against God?

Notes

  1. 6:5, 6. Even animals cry out in misery: and human beings exclaim at distasteful food. Why shouldn’t Job complaints?

  2. 6:20. Thirsty caravans perish in the desert pursuing a mirage. Job is similarly cheated by his friends.

  3. 6:30. ‘Cannot my taste…’ means ‘Am I quite without good reason for my complaints?
