Wesley's Notes for Job 14:10

14:10 Man - Two words are here used for man. Geber, a mighty man, tho' mighty, dies. Adam, a man of earth, returns to it. Before death, he is dying daily, continually wasting away. In death, he giveth up the ghost, the spirit returns to God that gave it. After death, where is he? Not where he was: his place knows him no more. But is he nowhere? Yes, he is gone to the world of spirits, gone into eternity, gone, never to return to this world!

    Job 14: 7 remind the true believers that on any adverse situation of life, "it is not yet over" for we are work in progress in the hands of God who is busy preparing something better for us. Remember Rom 8:28 Rom 5: 3 - 5. God turns every disappointment into opportunities. This is the attribute of God we serve.

  • Frank Adams for verse 14
    This the THE existential question of all mankind. Every person, Christian or not, has asked - indeed must ask - this question because humans are imbued with spirit. So when the seeker asks the question, the Christian witness is able to give him the response found in Roman 10:9. For that point forward the spiritual life is a matter of discipleship and growth.

    Job had was rooted deep in god and that should be faith of all us especially when we proudly proclaim to be followers and doets of his holy doctrine. Maybe there are those ho do not understand what means and how it should be applied.
