Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Job 19:10


19:10 Every side - In all respects, my person, and family, and estate. Gone - I am a lost and dead man. Hope - All my hopes of the present life, but not of the life to come. Tree - Which being once plucked up by the roots, never grows again. Hope in this life is a perishing thing. But the hope of good men, when it is cut off from this world, is but removed like a tree, transplanted from this nursery to the garden of God.


Discussion for Job 19

    v. 25 - This is a prophecy of the end times. Job was the1st book of the Bible written, therefore it is the oldest existing book in the world. This one verse is just amazing. "My redeemer ......."; That's Jesus.

    The world can be unkind to the believer or the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. God is with us in our trials. We must stand by Faith in God.Believe in our heavenly home and the Redeemer of our Souls. The pain is temporary if you believe through Salvation. Job 19
  • Lilian
    God is faithful to his promises and his words he will never leave us or forsake us thats tte promise . He is always in our side. He is the only God who can love us even we couldn't love ourself. We are saved by Grace and not by law. Through the blood of Jesus we are cleanse and sins are forgiven.He simply wants us to obey his words. Obedience is more important than sacrifice I will praise you Lord

    Help everyone dear Jesus that is going through a trial, thank you Lord Jesus for what you have brought us through in the past. Thank you for your deliverance with our current affliction. In Jesus in your name.

    Job 19:1-6 (Job is answering his friends because they are persecuting him) Then he talks about the things God is doing to him. V. 25-29 Job stands firm in his faith.
  • Courtney
    i have no idea what this means. it is a little confusing to but i kind of think it is about God trying to ask Job why is he letting the Lord down, putting Jesus in the dark paths alone by himself but know i now why job is doing that either he is on someone else is side, he is trying to please someone, or he is trying to hurt Jesus feelings after all Jesus is the lord and savor and he died for you.
