Wesley's Notes for Job 12:9


12:9 Lord - This is the only time that we meet with the name Jehovah in all the discourses between Job and his friends. For God in that age was more known by the name of Shaddai, the Almighty.


Discussion for Job 12

  • Rita
    There are so many times, when going through life's struggles I take a moment and think of Job, in all of all his struggles and his lost,
    Job teaches us, the more we become closer to God, the more we can be just as strong as Job
    Job is my favorite book in the Bible, I often get my strength from how he handled situations that took place
    I love Job
  • Ego entices evil and measures a man by the amount of physical wealth he has acquired. Self-serving people chase after worldly riches, many times without regard to the suffering they cause along the way. Physical things like wealth and possessions make people feel secure, when in fact it causes them to become blind and naked in the spiritual things. God gave us free will to choose "the world " or Him.

  • MockingBird for verse 9
    The Lord work : and who shall hinder Him .The way of the Lord is right : there is no unrighteousness in Him. God is God that cannot lie.
