Bible Commentary for Job 1:21

Wesley's Notes for Job 1:21


1:21 Naked - I brought none of these things with me, when I came out of my mother's womb into the world, but I received them from the hand of God, who hath now required his own again. Return thither - I shall be as rich when I die as I was when I was born, and therefore have reason to be contented with my condition, which also is the common lot of all men. Into the lap of our common mother, the earth, as the weary child lays its head in its mother's bosom. We go out of the world naked; the body doth, tho' the sanctified soul goes clothed. (#2Cor 5:3|.) Death strips us of all our enjoyments: clothing can neither warm nor adorn a dead body. Taken - He hath taken away nothing but his own, and what he so gave that he reserved the supreme disposal of in his own hand. And what is it to me, by what hand he that gives, resumes what he gave?

    Every thing on earth shall pass away. I thank God for the word.
  • Ben weaver on Job 1:21
    V.21. Only some logical thoughts. Job said ...and the Lord has taken away. Job, likely did not have Vs. 8-12 as we do now, telling us that it was Satan who took all his children and posessions in an attempt to disprove Job's loyalty. During much loss and suffering, Job maintained his integrity for God. Might this loving, caring God also permit evil powers to torment us for the same reason? I don't think so since our security is in Christ and He has already won the battle for us. Lets live for Jesus. Blessed be His name.
