Text Commentary

1And again he said to me, In whom do you put your trust? 1 Or ‘On what do you pin your hopes?’ 2,3And I said, In the living God. And again he said to me, Who took away your possessions and brought these misfortunes on you? 4And I said, God. 5And again he answered and said to me, So you put your trust in God. Was he not unjust (it is for you to judge) 2 Following James: all MSS are corrupt. in bringing these misfortunes on you or taking your possessions away? 6If he gave and took away, he ought not to have given anything at all – no king will ever humiliate his own soldier, his trusty guardsman (though who is there that can ever comprehend the depths of the mysteries of the Lord and of his wisdom?). Or should we presume 3 Lit. ‘Or does anyone presume’. to attribute injustice to the Lord? 7Answer me this, Job. 8And again I say to you, If you are in your right mind, show me (if you understand) how it is we see the sun rise in the east and set in the west, yet when we get up again in the morning, we find the same sun rising in the east? Explain this to me, if you are God's servant.

Notes:

1 Or ‘On what do you pin your hopes?’
