    This tells us that as humans, we have our weakness is times of trail, we are bound to feel down and out, but we should find encouragement in the Lordship of God almight, that He knows all things. Thanks to the encouragements and reprove from the Good friends he kept.

    Job was suffering through a terrible calamity brought upon him; he thought that by serving God and live a righteous life both him and his family would be saved. when all the catastrophe happened to him, he begin to feel wretched and so he turns everything that 's happened to him onto himself, cursing himself and the day that he was born. Throughout all this, he still revered God, still trust him.

    I think it is very similar to Philippians 1:6. A true believer who knows that he is eternally secure realizes that no matter what takes place in his life that includes good things and will certainly include bad and tragic things, the Holy Spirit will continue to work in his life to conform him to the image of Jesus Christ.
