Bible commentary

Discussion for Job 31

  • Anne

    While going through his suffering, Job is searching his heart to see if there is anything he did that was not pleasing to God. I am reminded of Ps. 139:23
  • Peter Mayumbe
    Job was a true man of God holy
  • Ahuwa Chiamaka Jecinta
    We should always learn how to humble ourselves no matter our position we are in life
  • Skyler
    Guys you do realize that God just used Job as an example
  • Verse 13-15
    I like how Job was humble, just, and merciful. And he was considerate of all people regardless of their social or economic status. We never want to put others down or think we are better because we have more financial stable than others.
  • Verse 31:1
    Job set an excellent example for us to all follow, He controlled his eyes and gave romantic attention only to his wife.
