Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Job 10:12


10:12 Life - Thou didst not only give me a curious body, but also a reasonable soul: thou didst at first give me life, and then maintain it in me; both when I was in the womb (which is a marvellous work of God) and afterward when I was unable to do anything to preserve my own life. Favour - Thou didst not give mere life, but many other favours, such as nourishment by the breast, education, knowledge, and instruction. Visitation - The care of thy providence watching over me for my good, and visiting me in mercy. Preserved - My life, which is liable to manifold dangers, if God did not watch over us every day and moment. Thou hast hitherto done great things for me, given me life, and the blessings of life, and daily deliverances: and wilt thou now undo all that thou hast done? And shall I who have been such an eminent monument of thy mercy, now be a spectacle of thy vengeance.


Discussion for Job 10

  • Joyce McDowell
    Job's shoes is hard to fill. Job was a man after God's heart. Even though he grumbled and complained he did not once deny who God is. We in today's society like to say,"God if you are real than do this". If we have faith, God's word said that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. Job had faith with others lost it, when his wife and friends did not have faith.
  • JANICE GIBBS
    We must always remember that even in our roughest times that God is with us. naturally the flesh begins to pain, discouragement, but we must Trust Gods words. he told us that many are the afflictions of the righteous but he would deliver us out of them all.(Psalm 34:19). We often forget that God will and can do all things. He told us that All things work together for good for them that love God.

    Job lessons is a lesson goodness and inner riches that comes with steadfastness and perseverance in life
  • The awesomeness of God 's presence in our lives is manifested daily
  • Stephende
    Job was afflicted at the permission of God. Satan believed anyone 's faith could be compromised. Almost but a few will stand firm as did Job, as Moses, as did Jesus. Does any have a free ride unto the bosom of Abraham, who himself was tested by offering his first born, the progenitor of the Jewish tribes, Issac.
