Wesley's Notes for Job 1:22


1:22 Charged - Heb. not imputed folly to God; so far was he from blaspheming God, that he did not entertain any dishonourable thought of God, as if he had done anything unworthy of his infinite wisdom, or justice, or goodness, but heartily acquiesced in his good pleasure, and in his righteous though sharp proceedings against him. Discontent and impatience do in effect impute folly to God. Against the workings of these we should carefully watch, acknowledging that God has done well, but we have done foolishly.


Discussion for Job 1

  • Pwele isaac
    God's way is always the best. The Lord God will never allow a temptation that is beyond what we can manage. Whatever happens to a child of God as a purpose. The comments of 'P' the first one to this book must be condemned to its deepest point. God's is the best. Therefore let all human beings praise the Lord. Amen.
  • Irene123
    To 'P' on Gen. 1 -- verses 4, 5,
  • P
    It appears that The Lord couldn't think of a better way to prove a point to Satan except to bring death and great suffering to Job, his family, and the servants. That doesn't seem reasonable.
  • Stephen Woehr
    What helped make Job so great in the eyes of God before all his suffering began was not so much what he did or didn't do. It was his heart attitude. Verse 1 tells us more about his heart than about his works, and verse 5 shows how his love for God played out in his life in one area, that of his children.
  • Nnaji kenneth
    if the people of God should have the understanding that job had, knowing that every thing int this world is vanity and equally know that we came to this world naked and will go back naked. only God gives and equally takes.
  • Sharon Stewart
    This book of job is my life do anyone else agree with me
