Wesley's Notes for Job 5:19


5:19 Deliver - If thou seekest to him by prayer and repentance. Here he applies himself to Job directly. Six - Manifold and repeated. Touch - So as to destroy thee. Thou shalt have a good issue out of all thy troubles, though they are both great and many.


Discussion for Job 5

  • Lydia
    Job's relationship with the Almighty God and Father is there to encourage our hearts and mind in Christ Jesus. His trials inspires us to continue on in Christ our loving Saviour for the trials that we encounter though it makes us weak Job's experiences makes us strong.
  • IKEDIASHI UZOR
    I was surprised that upon all the evil that befell Job, he refused to recognize the existence of satan the devil. Devil was not mentioned by him all through the chapters of the Bible. It was God everywhere and even when his wife and friends itched to make him deviate from God, he did not agree. Job is worthy of emulation and a mentor to anyone that wants to believe in God.
  • No one can know the full account to the Providence of God.
  • Robert blanding
    Job 5 to me is one of the the great chapters encouraging holy living, promise of a long God fulfilled life. I have committed it to memory. The point made about sin is that it doesn 't originate from dirt but man that the Creator formed with the dirt. Adam was first spiritual in chapter one, but in chapter two when he got his soul body in chapter two when he became a living soul, he lost his spiritual connection with God- and couldn 't get it back until Christ the second Adam. Job said in 19:26 though worms destroy my flesh I shall see God and lived to a ripe old age to over 900 years. About the 3rd or fourth to live past nine hundred years.

    Job 5 makes me understand and know that no matter what we go through as children of God, God will bring everything to a perfect finish for us. It 's all about trusting in him and not wavering.

    I love verse 12 14, that every man who plans evil against us shall be disappointed, his businesses of causing pains and misery to the saints shall collapse, the tools he uses shall become blunt.He will be confused, darkness shall befall him and search like a blind man during the day...his day will be covered by a dark cloud of darkness and he will not be able to locate the whereabouts of the saints.I am prophecying somebody here.
