Eliphaz:Those who plow and sow trouble,reap it!Job 4:8.You’re getting what God knows you really deserve, Job!

Bildad:He is only dishing out what your secret sin deserves…If only you were pure and upright,so that He could arise for you.Job 8:4-6.If you were only more spiritual, God would be correcting this right now.

zophar if only you were more faith filled and devote then you could have avoided all this job 11 13
Zophar:If only you were more faith-filled and devote, then you could have avoided all this!Job 11:13.

NIV Job 4:1 Then Eliphaz the Temanite replied: 2 "If someone ventures a word with you, will you be impatient? But who can keep from speaking? 3 Think how you have instructed many, how you have strengthened feeble hands. 4 Your words have supported those who stumbled; you have strengthened faltering knees. 5 But now trouble comes to you, and you are discouraged; it strikes you, and you are dismayed. 6 Should not your piety be your confidence and your blameless ways your hope? 7 "Consider now: Who, being innocent, has ever perished? Where were the upright ever destroyed? 8 As I have observed, those who plow evil and those who sow trouble reap it.


Eliphaz believes Job has deserved what has happened to him.He goes on to say that if Job repents his unrighteousness, a merciful God will take him back.

5:17 [Eliphaz] "Blessed is the man whom God corrects; so do not despise the discipline of the Almighty. 18 For he wounds, but he also binds up; he injures, but his hands also heal.
NIV Job 6:1 Then Job replied: 2 "If only my anguish could be weighed and all my misery be placed on the scales!”
14 "A despairing man should have the devotion of his friends, even though he forsakes the fear of the Almighty. 15 But my brothers are as undependable as intermittent streams, as the streams that overflow 16 when darkened by thawing ice and swollen with melting snow, 17 but that cease to flow in the dry season, and in the heat vanish from their channels.

7:16 [Job continues] I despise my life; I would not live forever. Let me alone; my days have no meaning. 17 "What is man that you make so much of him, that you give him so much attention, 18 that you examine him every morning and test him every moment? 19 Will you never look away from me, or let me alone even for an instant? 20 If I have sinned, what have I done to you, O watcher of men? Why have you made me your target? Have I become a burden to you? 21 Why do you not pardon my offenses and forgive my sins? For I will soon lie down in the dust; you will search for me, but I will be no more."

bildad pipes in that job really knows his sin before the lord that has caused all the trouble
Bildad pipes in that Job really knows his sin before the Lord that has caused all the trouble:

8:20 "Surely God does not reject a blameless man or strengthen the hands of evildoers. 21 He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy. 22 Your enemies will be clothed in shame, and the tents of the wicked will be no more."

How my heart yearns within me! 28 "If you say, 'How we will hound him, since the root of the trouble lies in him,' 29 you should fear the sword yourselves; for wrath will bring punishment by the sword, and then you will know that there is judgment."

job 32 3 4
Job 32:3-4.

He was angry with Job for justifying himself rather than God. He was also angry with the three friends because they condemned Job without cause.

niv job 33 3 4
NIV Job 33:3-4

“My words come from an upright heart; my lips sincerely speak what I know. The Spirit of God has made me; the breath of the Almighty gives me life.”


Notice Job and Elihu contend that their peace in the presence of God validates their speech.-- I know my Redeemer lives…I will see Him how my heart years for this.--The Spirit of God gives me breath.

elihu responds 32 1 37 24
Elihu responds (32:1-37:24)
  • I am young but must speak.
  • No one has proved Job wrong.
  • I am like bottled up wine ready to burst out of the wineskin!
  • Job, no one can claim he is entirely without sin. God redeems us from the ruin of our sin so that we can rejoice to see His face (33:26-33).
elihu responds 32 1 37 241
Elihu responds (32:1-37:24)
  • Job is a scoundrel in their sight.
  • Without God, we are nothing.
  • God is judge over all. We cannot demand Him to do anything.
  • But God does not despise man. He is just.
  • We cannot demand mercy from God when we feel guilt ridden. His blessing is a gift on His own terms.
  • Elihu condemns Job because it appears that God does not care about wickedness.
elihu responds 32 1 37 242
Elihu responds (32:1-37:24)
  • God gives us knowledge to serve and obey Him.
  • God’s eyes are on the righteous to bless them.
  • We should consider if hardship has been caused by flagrant sin. “If man does not listen, they will perish.”
  • But God does great things beyond our understanding (37:5)… so that all men revere Him in His larger divine plan! (37:24).

Elihu states that God eventually vindicates those who look to him and stand upright before him. We all need divine patience.Elihu continues that God’s ways are sometimes beyond our finite and limited understanding as we wait.

But God is faithful and works all things for the good of those who look to Him for helpand make Him their hope.

God affirms Elihu’s statements.The Lord does rebuke Job that His suffering is not altogether meaningless.Job will now make intercession for his three friends. His three friends’ sin has been revealed in His suffering. 1. They speak evil of God’s intent for His righteous servant. 2. They stand in the place of God to judge man.


NIV Job 42:7 After the LORD had said these things to Job, he said to Eliphaz the Temanite, "I am angry with you and your two friends, because you have not spoken of me what is right, as my servant Job has. 8 So now take seven bulls and seven rams and go to my servant Job and sacrifice a burnt offering for yourselves. My servant Job will pray for you, and I will accept his prayer and not deal with you according to your folly. You have not spoken of me what is right, as my servant Job has." 9 So Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite did what the LORD told them; and the LORD accepted Job's prayer. 10 After Job had prayed for his friends, the LORD made him prosperous again and gave him twice as much as he had before. 11 All 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. 12 The LORD blessed the latter part of Job's life more than the first. He had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, a thousand yoke of oxen and a thousand donkeys. 13 And he also had seven sons and three daughters. 14 The first daughter he named Jemimah, the second Keziah and the third Keren-Happuch. 15 Nowhere in all the land were there found women as beautiful as Job's daughters, and their father granted them an inheritance along with their brothers. 16 After this, Job lived a hundred and forty years; he saw his children and their children to the fourth generation. 17 And so he died, old and full of years.

“Everything written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets, and the Psalms had to be fulfilled in Me.”Luke 24:44.
2. The hearts of his companions understand their own sinful unbelief through the suffering of the righteous.

I know that my Redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand upon the earth. And after my skin has been destroyed, yet in my flesh I will see God; I myself will see him with my own eyes-- I, and not another. How my heart yearns within me! NIV Job 19:25-27


We wait for the blessed hope-- the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, NIV Titus 2:13.Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when he appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. Everyone who has this hope in him purifies himself, just as he is pure. NIV 1 John 3:2-3.


We are led to rejoice in the Lord’s presence

because we realize our sin as the Righteous Servant suffered.


NIV Job 40:15 "Look at the behemoth, which I made along with you and which feeds on grass like an ox. 16 What strength he has in his loins, what power in the muscles of his belly! 17 His tail sways like a cedar; the sinews of his thighs are close-knit. 18 His bones are tubes of bronze, his limbs like rods of iron. 19 He ranks first among the works of God, yet his Maker can approach him with his sword. 20 The hills bring him their produce, and all the wild animals play nearby. 21 Under the lotus plants he lies, hidden among the reeds in the marsh. 22 The lotuses conceal him in their shadow; the poplars by the stream surround him.

NIV Job 41:1 "Can you pull in the leviathan with a fishhook or tie down his tongue with a rope?

NIV Job 41:12 "I will not fail to speak of his limbs, his strength and his graceful form. 13 Who can strip off his outer coat? Who would approach him with a bridle? 14 Who dares open the doors of his mouth, ringed about with his fearsome teeth? 15 His back has rows of shields tightly sealed together; 16 each is so close to the next that no air can pass between. 17 They are joined fast to one another; they cling together and cannot be parted. 18 His snorting throws out flashes of light; his eyes are like the rays of dawn. 19 Firebrands stream from his mouth; sparks of fire shoot out. 20 Smoke pours from his nostrils as from a boiling pot over a fire of reeds. 21 His breath sets coals ablaze, and flames dart from his mouth. 22 Strength resides in his neck; dismay goes before him. 23 The folds of his flesh are tightly joined; they are firm and immovable. 24 His chest is hard as rock, hard as a lower millstone. 25 When he rises up, the mighty are terrified; they retreat before his thrashing. 26 The sword that reaches him has no effect, nor does the spear or the dart or the javelin. 27 Iron he treats like straw and bronze like rotten wood. 28 Arrows do not make him flee; slingstones are like chaff to him. 29 A club seems to him but a piece of straw; he laughs at the rattling of the lance. 30 His undersides are jagged potsherds, leaving a trail in the mud like a threshing sledge. 31 He makes the depths churn like a boiling caldron and stirs up the sea like a pot of ointment. 32 Behind him he leaves a glistening wake; one would think the deep had white hair. 33 Nothing on earth is his equal-- a creature without fear. 34 He looks down on all that are haughty; he is king over all that are proud."
