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

    The book of JOB has kept me humble among other words of GOD, and the Holy Spirit. Having a job makes me think of the book of JOB. When I feel like I've worked so hard and I've lost everything, I remember JOB and GOD'S promise to us all. HE will never leave us nor forsake us. He was with JOB the whole time.

    Verse 22 I never til now took this verse in as I have now,so very beautiful and powerful conveying in a few words,explaining so much to the questioning unbelievers JOB DID NOT BLAME GOD. GOD'S WORD CONVEYS THE THOUGHT IT IS FOOLISH TO BLAME GOD FOR MISFORTUNE OR SELF LOSS. BEAUTIFUL SO SIMPLE AN ANSWER TO GIVE TO THOSE WHO QUESTION GOD AND HIS MERCY. THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE

  • The book of Job is pre-flood in origin. The sons of Adam, called the son of God who namely were the sons of Seth, of a direct lineage of Adam, and like Adam were also long lived, still roamed the Earth. Like Adam they also came before God on a regular basis, just as we do, and on one of those occasions Satan was found amongst them, probably there to cause trouble, and God chose to speak to Satan regarding Job. Satan was not in Heaven before the throne of God as can be seen later in the book of Job, but God engaging Satan on Earth. It is not rocket science but as with many other things, this verse is contorted from something simple into something complex so that it v can be used to justify other incredible theories elsewhere in the Bible. Ask yourself, where does this extra this extra theology about fallen Angels lead to in the plan of God other than to lead weaker Christians away from God. To suggest fallen Angels coming before God on a regular basis is to suggest that they are not fallen.

    Nothing can seperate him from the love of God.
  • Glenn Baker
    How ever weathy we become, what ever we may achieve, at any time anything can be taken from us. We need to absorb this fundamental truth. Job understood this he knew that all must be left behind that all that he valued was nothing before the glory of God.
