Maker, who giveth songs in the night; Job-JESUSbible3

35,1 {S} Moreover Elihu answered and said:

35,2 Thinkest thou this to be thy right, or sayest thou:
‘I am righteousness before God’,

35,3 That thou inquirest:
‘What advantage will it be unto Thee?’
And: ‘
What profit shall I have, more than if I had sinned?’

35,4 I will give thee answer, and thy companions with thee.

35,5 Look unto the heavens, and see; and behold the skies, which are higher than thou.

35,6 If thou hast sinned, what doest thou against Him? And if thy transgressions be multiplied, what doest thou unto Him?

35,7 If thou be righteous, what givest thou Him? Or what receiveth He of thy hand?

35,8 Thy wickedness concerneth a man as thou art; and thy righteousness a son of man.

35,9 By reason of the multitude of oppressions they cry out; they cry for help by reason of the arm of the mighty.

35,10 But none saith:
‘Where is God my Maker, who giveth songs in the night;

35,11 Who teacheth us more than the beasts of the earth, and maketh us wiser than the fowls of heaven?’

35,12 There they cry, but none giveth answer, because of the pride of evil men.

35,13 Surely God will not hear vanity, neither will the Almighty regard it.

35,14 Yea, when thou sayest thou canst not see Him–
the cause is before Him; therefore wait thou for Him.

35,15 And now, is it for nought that He punished in His anger? And hath He not full knowledge of arrogance?

35,16 But Job doth open his mouth in vanity; he multiplieth words without knowledge.

comment: it’s a rhetorical argument –

Man – ‘Who died and made you GOD?’
God – ‘Who died and you man?’

Part I Genesis

24,19 And when she had done giving him drink, she said:
‘I will draw for thy camels also, until they have done drinking.’

24,20 And she hastened, and emptied her pitcher into the trough, and ran again unto the well to draw, and drew for all his camels.

24,21 And the man looked stedfastly on her; holding his peace, to know whether the LORD had made his journey prosperous or not.

24,22 And it came to pass, as the camels had done drinking, that the man took a golden ring of half a shekel weight, and two bracelets for her hands of ten shekels weight of gold;

24,23 and said:
‘Whose daughter art thou? tell me, I pray thee. Is there room in thy father’s house for us to lodge in?’

24,24 And she said unto him:
‘I am the daughter of Bethuel the son of Milcah, whom she bore unto Nahor.’

24,25 She said moreover unto him:
‘We have both straw and provender enough, and room to lodge in.’

24,26 And the man bowed his head, and prostrated himself before the LORD.

24,27 And he said:
‘Blessed be the LORD, the God of my master Abraham, who hath not forsaken His mercy and His truth toward my master; as for me, the LORD hath led me in the way to the house of my master’s brethren.’

24,28 And the damsel ran, and told her mother’s house according to these words.

24,29 And Rebekah had a brother, and his name was Laban; and Laban ran out unto the man, unto the fountain.

24,30 And it came to pass, when he saw the ring, and the bracelets upon his sister’s hands, and when he heard the words of Rebekah his sister, saying:
‘Thus spoke the man unto me,’
that he came unto the man; and, behold, he stood by the camels at the fountain.

24,31 And he said:
‘Come in, thou blessed of the LORD; wherefore standest thou without? for I have cleared the house, and made room for the camels.’

24,32 And the man came into the house, and he ungirded the camels; and he gave straw and provender for the camels, and water to wash his feet and the feet of the men that were with him.

24,33 And there was set food before him to eat; but he said:
‘I will not eat, until I have told mine errand.’
And he said:
‘Speak on.’

24,34 And he said:
‘I am Abraham’s servant.

Part II Kings

2 6,15 And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, a host with horses and chariots was round about the city. And his servant said unto him:
‘Alas, my master! how shall we do?’

2 6,16 And he answered:
‘Fear not:
for they that are with us are more than they that are with them.’

2 6,17 And Elisha prayed, and said:
‘LORD, I pray Thee, open his eyes, that he may see.’
And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw; and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.

2 6,18 And when they came down to him, Elisha prayed unto the LORD, and said:
‘Smite this people, I pray Thee, with blindness.’
And He smote them with blindness according to the word of Elisha.

2 6,19 And Elisha said unto them:
‘This is not the way, neither is this the city; follow me, and I will bring you to the man whom ye seek.’
And he led them to Samaria.

2 6,20 And it came to pass, when they were come into Samaria, that Elisha said:
‘LORD, open the eyes of these men, that they may see.’
And the LORD opened their eyes, and they saw; and, behold, they were in the midst of Samaria.

2 6,21 And the king of Israel said unto Elisha, when he saw them:
‘My father, shall I smite them? shall I smite them?’

2 6,22 And he answered:
‘Thou shalt not smite them; hast thou taken captive with thy sword and with thy bow those whom thou wouldest smite? set bread and water before them, that they may eat and drink, and go to their master.’

2 6,23 And he prepared great provision for them; and when they had eaten and drunk, he sent them away, and they went to their master. And the bands of Aram came no more into the land of Israel. {P}

2 6,24 And it came to pass after this, that Ben-hadad king of Aram gathered all his host, and went up, and besieged Samaria.

2 6,25 And there was a great famine in Samaria; and, behold, they besieged it, until an ass’s head was sold for fourscore pieces of silver, and the fourth part of a kab of dove’s dung for five pieces of silver.

2 6,26 And as the king of Israel was passing by upon the wall, there cried a woman unto him, saying:
‘Help, my lord, O king.’

2 6,27 And he said:
‘If the LORD do not help thee, whence shall I help thee? out of the threshingfloor, or out of the winepress?’

2 6,28 And the king said unto her:
‘What aileth thee?’
And she answered:
‘This woman said unto me:
Give thy son, that we may eat him to-day, and we will eat my son to-morrow.

2 6,29 So we boiled my son, and did eat him; and I said unto her on the next day:
Give thy son, that we may eat him; and she hath hid her son.’

2 6,30 And it came to pass, when the king heard the words of the woman, that he rent his clothes–
now he was passing by upon the wall–
and the people looked, and, behold, he had sackcloth within upon his flesh.

2 6,31 Then he said:
‘God do so to me, and more also, if the head of Elisha the son of Shaphat shall stand on him this day.’

2 6,32 But Elisha sat in his house, and the elders sat with him; and the king sent a man from before him; but ere the messenger came to him, he said to the elders:
‘See ye how this son of a murderer hath sent to take away my head? look, when the messenger cometh, shut the door, and hold the door fast against him; is not the sound of his master’s feet behind him?’

2 6,33 And while he yet talked with them, behold, the messenger came down unto him; and [the king] said:
‘Behold, this evil is of the LORD; why should I wait for the LORD any longer?’ {P}

2 7,1 And Elisha said:
‘Hear ye the word of the LORD; thus saith the LORD:
To-morrow about this time shall a measure of fine flour be sold for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, in the gate of Samaria.’

2 7,2 Then the captain on whose hand the king leaned answered the man of God, and said:
‘Behold, if the LORD should make windows in heaven, might this thing be?’
And he said:
‘Behold, thou shalt see it with thine eyes, but shalt not eat thereof.’ {P}

2 7,3 Now there were four leprous men at the entrance of the gate; and they said one to another:
‘Why sit we here until we die?

2 7,4 If we say:
We will enter into the city, then the famine is in the city, and we shall die there; and if we sit still here, we die also. Now therefore come, and let us fall unto the host of the Arameans; if they save us alive, we shall live; and if they kill us, we shall but die.’

2 7,5 And they rose up in the twilight, to go unto the camp of the Arameans; and when they were come to the outermost part of the camp of the Arameans, behold, there was no man there.

2 7,6 For the Lord had made the host of the Arameans to hear a noise of chariots, and a noise of horses, even the noise of a great host; and they said one to another:
‘Lo, the king of Israel hath hired against us the kings of the Hittites, and the kings of the Egyptians, to come upon us.’

Part III Proverbs

15,30 The light of the eyes rejoiceth the heart; and a good report maketh the bones fat.

15,31 The ear that hearkeneth to the reproof of life abideth among the wise.

15,32 He that refuseth correction despiseth his own soul; but he that hearkeneth to reproof getteth understanding.

15,33 The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour goeth humility.

16,1 The preparations of the heart are man’s, but the answer of the tongue is from the LORD.

16,2 All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but the LORD weigheth the spirits.

16,3 Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established.

16,4 The LORD hath made every things for His own purpose, yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.

16,5 Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD; my hand upon it! he shall not be unpunished.

16,6 By mercy and truth iniquity is expiated; and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil.

16,7 When a man’s ways please the LORD, He maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.

16,8 Better is a little with righteousness than great revenues with injustice.

16,9 A man’s heart deviseth his way; but the LORD directeth his steps.

16,10 A divine sentence is in the lips of the king; his mouth trespasseth not in judgment.

16,11 A just balance and scales are the LORD’S; all the weights of the bag are His work.

16,12 It is an abomination to kings to commit wickedness; for the throne is established by righteousness.

16,13 Righteous lips are the delight of kings; and they love him that speaketh right.

16,14 The wrath of a king is as messengers of death; but a wise man will pacify it.

16,15 In the light of the king’s countenance is life; and his favour is as a cloud of the latter rain.

16,16 How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! yea, to get understanding is rather to be chosen than silver.

16,17 The highway of the upright is to depart from evil; he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul.

Part IV Luke 19

5 And when Jesus came to the place, he saw him, and said to him:
Make haste and come down, Zaccheus; for I must be at thy house to-day.

6 And he hastened, and came down, and received him with gladness.

7 And when they all saw [it], they murmured, and said:
He hath gone in to be guest with a man that is a sinner.

8 And Zaccheus stood up, and said to Jesus:
Behold, my Lord, the half of my riches I give to the poor; and to every man, whom I have wronged in any thing, I restore fourfold.

9 Jesus said to him:
This day, life is to this house; for he also is a son of Abraham.

10 For the Son of man came, to seek and to vivify that which was lost.

11 And when they heard these things, he proceeded to utter a similitude; because he was near to Jerusalem, and they supposed that the kingdom of God was to be soon developed.

12 And he said:
A certain man of high birth was going to a distant place, to obtain royalty, and return again.

13 And he called his ten servants, and gave them ten pounds:
and he said to them, Traffic until I come.

14 But the inhabitants of his city hated him; and they sent envoys after him, saying:
We wish this man not to reign over us.

the ear trieth words, Job-JESUSbible3

34,1 {S} Moreover Elihu answered and said:

34,2 Hear my words, ye wise men; and give ear unto me, ye that have knowledge.

34,3 For the ear trieth words, as the palate tasteth food.

34,4 Let us choose for us that which is right; let us know among ourselves what is good.

34,5 For Job hath said:
‘I am righteous, and God hath taken away my right;

34,6 Notwithstanding my right I am accounted a liar; my wound is incurable, though I am without transgression.’

34,7 What man is like Job, who drinketh up scorning like water?

34,8 Who goeth in company with the workers of iniquity, and walketh with wicked men.

34,9 For he hath said:
‘It profiteth a man nothing that he should be in accord with God.’

34,10 Therefore hearken unto me, ye men of understanding: {N}
Far be it from God, that He should do wickedness; and from the Almighty, that He should commit iniquity.

34,11 For the work of a man will He requite unto him, and cause every man to find according to his ways.

34,12 Yea, of a surety, God will not do wickedly, neither will the Almighty pervert justice.

34,13 Who gave Him a charge over the earth? Or who hath disposed the whole world?

34,14 If He set His heart upon man, if He gather unto Himself his spirit and his breath;

34,15 All flesh shall perish together, and man shall return unto dust.

34,16 If now thou hast understanding, hear this; hearken to the voice of my words.

34,17 Shall even one that hateth right govern? And wilt thou condemn Him that is just and mighty–

34,18 Is it fit to say to a king:
‘Thou art base’?
Or to nobles:
‘Ye are wicked’?–

34,19 That respecteth not the persons of princes, nor regardeth the rich more than the poor? {N}
For they all are the work of His hands.

34,20 In a moment they die, even at midnight; {N}
the people are shaken and pass away, and the mighty are taken away without hand.

34,21 For His eyes are upon the ways of a man, and He seeth all his goings.

34,22 There is no darkness, nor shadow of death, where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves.

34,23 For He doth not appoint a time unto any man, when he should go before God in judgment.

34,24 He breaketh in pieces mighty men without inquisition, and setteth others in their stead.

34,25 Therefore He taketh knowledge of their works; and He overturneth them in the night, so that they are crushed.

34,26 He striketh them as wicked men in the open sight of others;

34,27 Because they turned aside from following Him, and would not have regard to any of His ways;

34,28 So that they cause the cry of the poor to come unto Him, and He heareth the cry of the afflicted.

34,29 When He giveth quietness, who then can condemn? And when He hideth His face, who then can behold Him? {N}
whether it be done unto a nation, or unto a man, alike;

34,30 That the godless man reign not, that there be none to ensnare the people.

34,31 For hath any said unto God:
‘I have borne chastisement, though I offend not;

34,32 That which I see not teach Thou me; if I have done iniquity, I will do it no more’?

34,33 Shall His recompense be as thou wilt? For thou loathest it, so that thou must choose, and not I; therefore speak what thou knowest.

34,34 Men of understanding will say unto me, yea, every wise man that heareth me:

34,35 ‘Job speaketh without knowledge, and his words are without discernment.’

34,36 Would that Job were tried unto the end, because of his answering like wicked men.

34,37 For he addeth rebellion unto his sin, he clappeth his hands among us, and multiplieth his words against God.

#WhatWouldJesusTeach “Go and prepare”

A pelican will feed its own flesh for her young to survive.

Christ JESUS urged His disciples to prepare to partake of the sacrificial lamb for the Passover Eucharist.

He Himself did not eat it. He was sacrificed on the same day that they had gone to prepare.

"Go and prepare" till He returns.

Text: Luke 22
7 Then came the day of the Pass­over, on which it was necessary to sac­rifice the Passover.
8 And He sent Peter and John, saying,
“Go and prepare the Passover for us, that we may eat.”

Part I Genesis 1f4da1f4d6

24,2 And Abraham said unto his servant, the elder of his house, that ruled over all that he had:
‘Put, I pray thee, thy hand under my thigh.

24,3 And I will make thee swear by the LORD, the God of heaven and the God of the earth, that thou shalt not take a wife for my son of the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I dwell.

24,4 But thou shalt go unto my country, and to my kindred, and take a wife for my son, even for Isaac.’

24,5 And the servant said unto him:
‘Peradventure the woman will not be willing to follow me unto this land; must I needs bring thy son back unto the land from whence thou camest?’

24,6 And Abraham said unto him:
‘Beware thou that thou bring not my son back thither.

24,7 The LORD, the God of heaven, who took me from my father’s house, and from the land of my nativity, and who spoke unto me, and who swore unto me, saying:
Unto thy seed will I give this land; He will send His angel before thee, and thou shalt take a wife for my son from thence.

24,8 And if the woman be not willing to follow thee, then thou shalt be clear from this my oath; only thou shalt not bring my son back thither.’

24,9 And the servant put his hand under the thigh of Abraham his master, and swore to him concerning this matter.

24,10 And the servant took ten camels, of the camels of his master, and departed; having all goodly things of his master’s in his hand; and he arose, and went to Aram-naharaim, unto the city of Nahor.

24,11 And he made the camels to kneel down without the city by the well of water at the time of evening, the time that women go out to draw water.

24,12 And he said:
‘O LORD, the God of my master Abraham, send me, I pray Thee, good speed this day, and show kindness unto my master Abraham.

24,13 Behold, I stand by the fountain of water; and the daughters of the men of the city come out to draw water.

24,14 So let it come to pass, that the damsel to whom I shall say:
Let down thy pitcher, I pray thee, that I may drink; and she shall say:
Drink, and I will give thy camels drink also; let the same be she that Thou hast appointed for Thy servant, even for Isaac; and thereby shall I know that Thou hast shown kindness unto my master.’

24,15 And it came to pass, before he had done speaking, that, behold, Rebekah came out, who was born to Bethuel the son of Milcah, the wife of Nahor, Abraham’s brother, with her pitcher upon her shoulder.

24,16 And the damsel was very fair to look upon, a virgin, neither had any man known her; and she went down to the fountain, and filled her pitcher, and came up.

24,17 And the servant ran to meet her, and said:
‘Give me to drink, I pray thee, a little water of thy pitcher.’

24,18 And she said:
‘Drink, my lord’;
and she hastened, and let down her pitcher upon her hand, and gave him drink.

Part II Kings

2 5,17 And Naaman said:
‘If not, yet I pray thee let there be given to thy servant two mules’ burden of earth; for thy servant will henceforth offer neither burnt-offering nor sacrifice unto other gods, but unto the LORD.

2 5,18 In this thing the LORD pardon thy servant:
when my master goeth into the house of Rimmon to worship there, and he leaneth on my hand, and I prostrate myself in the house of Rimmon, when I prostrate myself in the house of Rimmon, the LORD pardon thy servant in this thing.’

2 5,19 And he said unto him:
‘Go in peace.’
So he departed from him some way. {S}

2 5,20 But Gehazi, the servant of Elisha the man of God, said:
‘Behold, my master hath spared this Naaman the Aramean, in not receiving at his hands that which he brought; as the LORD liveth, I will surely run after him, and take somewhat of him.’

2 5,21 So Gehazi followed after Naaman. And when Naaman saw one running after him, he alighted from the chariot to meet him, and said:
‘Is all well?’

2 5,22 And he said:
‘All is well. My master hath sent me, saying:
Behold, even now there are come to me from the hill-country of Ephraim two young men of the sons of the prophets; give them, I pray thee, a talent of silver, and two changes of raiment.’

2 5,23 And Naaman said:
‘Be content, take two talents.’
And he urged him, and bound two talents of silver in two bags, with two changes of raiment, and laid them upon two of his servants; and they bore them before him.

2 5,24 And when he came to the hill, he took them from their hand, and deposited them in the house; and he let the men go, and they departed.

2 5,25 But he went in, and stood before his master. And Elisha said unto him:
‘Whence comest thou, Gehazi?’
And he said:
‘Thy servant went no whither.’

2 5,26 And he said unto him:
‘Went not my heart [with thee], when the man turned back from his chariot to meet thee? Is it a time to receive money, and to receive garments, and oliveyards and vineyards, and sheep and oxen, and men-servants and maid-servants?

2 5,27 The leprosy therefore of Naaman shall cleave unto thee, and unto thy seed for ever.’
And he went out from his presence a leper as white as snow.

2 6,1 And the sons of the prophets said unto Elisha:
‘Behold now, the place where we dwell before thee is too strait for us.

2 6,2 Let us go, we pray thee, unto the Jordan, and take thence every man a beam, and let us make us a place there, where we may dwell.’
And he answered:
‘Go ye.’

2 6,3 And one said:
‘Be content, I pray thee, and go with thy servants.’
And he answered:
‘I will go.’

2 6,4 So he went with them. And when they came to the Jordan, they cut down wood.

2 6,5 But as one was felling a beam, the axe-head fell into the water; and he cried, and said:
‘Alas, my master! for it was borrowed.’

2 6,6 And the man of God said:
‘Where fell it?’
And he showed him the place. And he cut down a stick, and cast it in thither, and made the iron to swim.

2 6,7 And he said:
‘Take it up to thee.’
So he put out his hand, and took it. {P}

2 6,8 Now the king of Aram warred against Israel; and he took counsel with his servants, saying:
‘In such and such a place shall be my camp.’

2 6,9 And the man of God sent unto the king of Israel, saying:
‘Beware that thou pass not such a place; for thither the Arameans are coming down.’

2 6,10 And the king of Israel sent to the place which the man of God told him and warned him of; and he guarded himself there, not once nor twice.

2 6,11 And the heart of the king of Aram was sore troubled for this thing; and he called his servants, and said unto them:
‘Will ye not tell me which of us is for the king of Israel?’

2 6,12 And one of his servants said:
‘Nay, my lord, O king; but Elisha, the prophet that is in Israel, telleth the king of Israel the words that thou speakest in thy bed-chamber.’

2 6,13 And he said:
‘Go and see where he is, that I may send and fetch him.’
And it was told him, saying:
‘Behold, he is in Dothan.’

2 6,14 Therefore sent he thither horses, and chariots, and a great host; and they came by night, and compassed the city about.

Part III Proverbs

15,9 The way of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD; but He loveth him that followeth after righteousness.

15,10 There is grievous correction for him that forsaketh the way; and he that hateth reproof shall die.

15,11 The nether-world and Destruction are before the LORD; how much more then the hearts of the children of men!

15,12 A scorner loveth not to be reproved; he will not go unto the wise.

15,13 A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance; but by sorrow of heart the spirit is broken.

15,14 The heart of him that hath discernment seeketh knowledge; but the mouth of fools feedeth on folly.

15,15 All the days of the poor are evil; but he that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast.

15,16 Better is little with the fear of the LORD, than great treasure and turmoil therewith.

15,17 Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith.

15,18 A wrathful man stirreth up discord; but he that is slow to anger appeaseth strife.

15,19 The way of the sluggard is as though hedged by thorns; but the path of the upright is even.

15,20 A wise son maketh a glad father; but a foolish man despiseth his mother.

15,21 Folly is joy to him that lacketh understanding; but a man of discernment walketh straightforwards.

15,22 For want of counsel purposes are frustrated; but in the multitude of counsellors they are established.

15,23 A man hath joy in the answer of his mouth; and a word in due season, how good is it!

15,24 The path of life goeth upward for the wise, that he may depart from the nether-world beneath.

15,25 The LORD will pluck up the house of the proud; but He will establish the border of the widow.

15,26 The thoughts of wickedness are an abomination to the LORD; but words of pleasantness are pure.

15,27 He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house; but he that hateth gifts shall live.

15,28 The heart of the righteous studieth to answer; but the mouth of the wicked poureth out evil things.

15,29 The LORD is far from the wicked; but He heareth the prayer of the righteous.

Part IV Luke 18

38 And he called out, and said:
Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me.

39 And they that went before Jesus rebuked him, that he might be silent. But he cried out the more, Son of David, have mercy on me.

40 And Jesus stood, and commanded him to be called to him. And when he came to him, he asked him,

41 and said to him:
What wilt thou, that I do for thee?
And he said:
My Lord, that I may see.

42 And Jesus said to him:
See thou; thy faith hath vivified thee.

43 And immediately he saw. And he followed after him, and glorified God. And all the people who beheld, gave glory to God.

3 and he wished to see Jesus, who he was; and could not, on account of the crowd; because Zaccheus was small in stature.

4 And he ran forward of Jesus, and climbed a wild fig-tree, in order to see him; for he was to pass that way.

5 If thou canst, answer thou me, set thy words in order before me, stand forth.

6 Behold, I am toward God even as thou art; I also am formed out of the clay.

7 Behold, my terror shall not make thee afraid, neither shall my pressure be heavy upon thee.

8 Surely thou hast spoken in my hearing, and I have heard the voice of thy words;

9 ‘I am clean, without transgression, I am innocent, neither is there iniquity in me;

10 Behold, He findeth occasions against me, He counteth me for His enemy;

11 He putteth my feet in the stocks, He marketh all my paths.’

12 Behold, I answer thee:
In this thou art not right, that God is too great for man;

13 Why hast thou striven against Him? seeing that He will not answer any of his words.

14 For God speaketh in one way, yea in two, though man perceiveth it not.

15 In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed;

16 Then He openeth the ears of men, and by their chastisement sealeth the decree,

17 That men may put away their purpose, and that He may hide pride from man;

18 That He may keep back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword.

19 He is chastened also with pain upon his bed, and all his bones grow stiff;

20 So that his life maketh him to abhor bread, and his soul dainty food.

21 His flesh is consumed away, that it cannot be seen; and his bones corrode to unsightliness.

22 Yea, his soul draweth near unto the pit, and his life to the destroyers.

23 If there be for him an angel, an intercessor, one among a thousand, to vouch for a man’s uprightness;

24 Then He is gracious unto him, and saith:
‘Deliver him from going down to the pit, I have found a ransom.’

25 His flesh is tenderer than a child’s; he returneth to the days of his youth;

26 He prayeth unto God, and He is favourable unto him; so that he seeth His face with joy; {N}
and He restoreth unto man his righteousness.

27 He cometh before men, and saith:
‘I have sinned, and perverted that which was right, and it profited me not.’

28 So He redeemeth his soul from going into the pit, and his life beholdeth the light.

29 Lo, all these things doth God work, twice, yea thrice, with a man,

30 To bring back his soul from the pit, that he may be enlightened with the light of the living.

31 Mark well, O Job, hearken unto me; hold thy peace, and I will speak.

32 If thou hast any thing to say, answer me; speak, for I desire to justify thee.

33 If not, hearken thou unto me; hold thy peace, and I will teach thee wisdom.

Talmidim (Disciples of Jesus) 21: Pauline Perils

Confusion from Paul’s writings comes from failure to distinguish between his address at believers and at non-believers, false and true doctrines. Read for example Galatians 5-6 and Ephesians 1-4. Many false teachings are misinterpretations of Paul’s writings. The Apostle Peter said the same thing.

Bible Study 101: A Parable

The Bible has 66 books [Protestant version].

Each book is one word. This language is used by the Spirit of GOD to speak.

He speaks in sentences. Not words.

The End.

Do you have any fish? #WhatWouldJesusTeach

One week after the Disciples saw JESUS resurrected they went back to work. What work? Their work.

JESUS had called them to work for Him and forget the past. The evidence the past was gone was that even the fish had no respect
for their old craft.

The fish JESUS is looking for is men. Men to come follow Him. That is our job. Our old job is gone. It will no longer produce.

"Go!" Matthew 28.

Text: John 21

4 But when the day was now breaking, Jesus stood on the beach, yet the disciples did not know that it was Jesus.

5 Jesus therefore said to them,
“Boys, you do not have any fish, do you?”
They answered him,

6 And He said to them,
“Cast the net on the right-hand side of the boat, and you will find a catch.”
They cast therefore, and then they were not able to haul it in because of the great number of fish.

7 That disciple therefore whom Jesus loved said to Peter,
“It is our Lord.”

I will sing of mercy and justice; unto Thee, O LORD, will I sing praises. #Psalms 101,1

Days should speak, Job-JESUSbible3

n. Elihu, a young man listening to Job’s debate, gives his objective opinion in the following 6 chapters:

32,1 So these three men ceased to answer Job, {N}

because he was righteous in his own eyes. {P}

32,2 Then was kindled the wrath of Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite, of the family of Ram; {N}
against Job was his wrath kindled, because he justified himself rather than God.

32,3 Also against his three friends was his wrath kindled, {N}
because they had found no answer, and yet had condemned Job.

32,4 Now Elihu had waited to speak unto Job, because they were older than he.

32,5 And when Elihu saw that there was no answer in the mouth of these three men, his wrath was kindled. {P}

32,6 And Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite answered and said: {N}
I am young, and ye are very old; {N}
wherefore I held back, and durst not declare you mine opinion.

32,7 I said:
‘Days should speak, and multitude of years should teach wisdom.’

32,8 But it is a spirit in man, and the breath of the Almighty, that giveth them understanding.

32,9 It is not the great that are wise, nor the aged that discern judgment.

32,10 Therefore I say:
‘Hearken to me; I also will declare mine opinion.’

32,11 Behold, I waited for your words, I listened for your reasons, whilst ye searched out what to say.

32,12 Yea, I attended unto you, and, behold, there was none that convinced Job, or that answered his words, among you.

32,13 Beware lest ye say:
‘We have found wisdom; God may vanquish him, not man!’

32,14 For he hath not directed his words against me; neither will I answer him with your speeches.

32,15 They are amazed, they answer no more; words are departed from them.

32,16 And shall I wait, because they speak not, because they stand still, and answer no more?

32,17 I also will answer my part, I also will declare mine opinion.

32,18 For I am full of words; the spirit within me constraineth me.

32,19 Behold, mine inwards are as wine which hath no vent; like new wine-skins which are ready to burst.

32,20 I will speak, that I may find relief; I will open my lips and answer.

32,21 Let me not, I pray you, respect any man’s person; neither will I give flattering titles unto any man.

32,22 For I know not to give flattering titles; else would my Maker soon take me away.

comment: In the 80’s a famous murder trial took place involving a prominent Lawyer from north Texas. In prison he became a Christian. Immediately he began to tour and preach. My senior pastor at the time make a remark I will not soon forget. In regard to this convicted felon, he said, let’s hear his side – in about ten years. The essence of Elihu’s argument: ‘only time will tell.’ As Job remarked earlier, ‘ i would argue like you, if i were in your shoes.’
