Wesley's Notes for Job 19:25


19:25 For - This is the reason of his confidence in the goodness of his cause, and his willingness to have the matter depending between him and his friends, published and submitted to any trial, because he had a living and powerful Redeemer to plead his cause, and to give sentence for him. My Redeemer - In whom I have a particular interest. The word Goel, here used; properly agrees to Jesus Christ: for this word is primarily used of the next kinsman, whose office it was to redeem by a price paid, the sold or mortgaged estate of his deceased kinsman; to revenge his death, and to maintain his name and honour, by raising up seed to him. All which more fitly agrees to Christ, who is our nearest kinsman and brother, as having taken our nature upon him; who hath redeemed that everlasting inheritance which our first parents had utterly lost, by the price of his own blood; and hath revenged the death of mankind upon the great contriver of it, the devil, by destroying him and his kingdom; and hath taken a course to preserve our name, and honour, and persons, to eternity. And it is well observed, that after these expressions, we meet not with such impatient or despairing passages, as we had before; which shews that they had inspired him with new life and comfort. Latter day - At the day of the general resurrection and judgment, which, as those holy patriarchs well knew and firmly believed, was to be at the end of the world. The earth - The place upon which Christ shall appear and stand at the last day. Heb. upon the dust; in which his saints and members lie or sleep, whom he will raise out of it. And therefore he is fitly said to stand upon the dust, or the grave, or death; because then he will put that among other enemies under his feet.


Discussion for Job 19:25

  • Job is going through a lot of pain and humiliation not knowing about what took place in heaven God and satan.And still remain faithful to God! I am convinced that will never happen to anyone exercising faith in Jesus and obeing or observing the will of His father.
  • MockingBird for verse 25
    I know my redeemer liveth because He lives within me. I Praise God for redemption : For I am redeemed : Bought Back with the precious blood of Jesus Christ from sin , sickness and disease : Death , hell and the grave. Praise God forever more. He shall stand forever more !!!!
  • Runyararo for verse 25
    Everyone is reedemed from death unto life and made new and given a new heart, for the lord our GOD LIVETH neither will he turn away to those that call on HIS name but will hear their cries and redeem them. Our Lord reings forever he shall judge all nations with righteousness. God bless you.
  • Ben Weaver for verse 25
    Let us also consider the many new testament statements about now having been redeemed, and now having been translated into the kingdom of Jesus. Also Heb.11 40 states that God has now provided something better for us than the old testament Saints had,although they were encouraged by God 's promises. 1 Pet.1 9 12 explains that this better aspect of salvation was not yet available to them, but is now provided for us to apply, by the new testament experience of being in Christ. While Job thought it was God that took his blessings from him, we can now read that God only permitted Satan to proceed for a show down. Job 1 6 12 I personally, do not feel that Christians need to, or should allow Satan to rob us of God 's provisions through Christ.
  • Cheryl. C. for verse 25
    I can say with Job : I know my redeemer liveth. To be redeemed is to be bought back. I have been bought back from sin, sickness, and disease through Jesus Christ. I am so Thankful to my God that He loved me enough to send His son for me and the whole world. Life is at our fingertips if we will only take hold of it. Praise God Almighty !!!!!
  • Gabriel for verse 25
    Job knew that sometimes God allows situations to come in our lives just for the sake of His glory to be seen in us. what you have can be taken away from you but what you are cannot be taken away from you
