AWAKE BIBLE IN A YEAR JANUARY 29
Read Job 25-28
Who is Bildad the Shuhite? He had sat in silence for with Job for 7 days because Job’s suffering was so flabbergasting. In Genesis 25:1-2 we read he is a descendant of Abraham’s son Shuah whose mother Keturah became Abraham’s wife after Sarah died.
Bildad’s last bit of counsel is highlighting man as grossly inferior to God.
Job calls Bildad’s help NO HELP AT ALL. Isn’t that how the bereaved feel when when people offer words in the face of tremendous loss.
And it’s like Job says, ‘ok Bildad you want to talk about the greatness of God. Let’s go there.’
