29:14 Put on, &c. - Perhaps he did not wear these: but his steady justice was to him instead of all those ornaments.


Discussion for Job 29

  • Phemelo
    Our self-righteousness is likened to filthy rags Isaiah 64:6 . We can 't do anything of our own, on our own, which is good. All good things comes from Jehovah. Here, Job gives himself the credit for doing all he has done, bragging and boasting . The left hand must not know what the right hand has done, given, helped, etc. All glory must be given to God, because when we start boasting of our deeds, that 's when we develop a vain-glory personality and sooner or later, we will want all the glory. ALL have sinned and come short of the glory of God, so say Scripture.

    If Job chapter 29 is to be read alone, it shows how a righteous man is trully blessed in the hand of the Lord. Job was reounting the past good days which apparently were later restored to him. His current position teaches us that it is NOT by deed but by faith that we obtain the GRACE of righeousness. So what is most important is FAITH
  • Ed Stukowski
    One of the greatest revelation of Job a Jesus Christ foreruner. We see the character of Jesus himself. I no longer live but christ lives in me by faith...A true testimony of the Spirit man who walks by faith and His revelation.
  • Chrissy
    It is so hard and painful and baffling when we are so on fire for God and walking closely. Trying to do everything right in God's sight to then suddenly be plunged into darkness. I agree with Matthew's comment. When such things happen we should check ourselves for any sin to be sure. In jobs case..He didn't sin.
  • Brynal
    Job got comfortable with God.
