Wesley's Notes for Job 1:20


1:20 Shaved - Caused his hair to be shaved or cut off, which was then an usual ceremony in mourning. Worshipped - Instead of cursing God, which Satan said he would do, he adored him, and gave him the glory of his sovereignty, of his justice, and of his goodness also, in this most severe dispensation.


Discussion for Job 1:20

  • Dezerine for verse 20
    In life when we face with calamity is not too give up but to pray it is a language that God understand, it is a weapon.
  • Christa LuAnn Irvine-McDaniel for verse 20
    I have been looking at Scriptures and reading as much info on Religion as possible lately. I heard a message from the Holy Spirit in March about unity by humbling ourselves so we can all call on our Father God. I have known that God Loves us and sent Jesus to die for us since I was a little girl. Growing up, I felt judged at Church and when I read the Bible it scared me...so I relied on Prayer and just Talking to Jesus to help me throughout my life. I was confident that even though I wasn 't perfect, I knew I would one day be with Jesus because all I needed to know was that God Loves Us so much that He sent His Son Jesus to die for all our sins. I am now 33 years old and my world was turned upside down in March. The first message I received was "We need to gather the sheep ", which I laughed because I don 't know anyone with sheep, but I knew where the message came from, so I called a Christian radio station and left the message. The second message was the Unity message that I thought was Beautiful when I heard it. I spoke to some Pastors and have read Scripture and now I 'm terrified. People make it seem like the message is taking away from Jesus 's Sacrifice! I don 't understand how that can be when Jesus is what I 've held onto my WHOLE life! Please Pray for me and if anyone can help make sense of any of this...I would love to hear from you. Thank You and God Bless, Christa
