Two of Job’s friends have attempted to correct Job so far. Eliphaz and Bildad has attempted to show Job that he is obviously not innocent of sin and this is the cause of his suffering. The first two chapters of Job told us plainly and clearly by God and the narrator that this is not the cause. Job is blameless, upright, fears God, and turns from evil. With Job still maintaining his integrity and blamelessness, we will consider how Job’s third friend, Zophar, will try to comfort Job. As we have been doing in each lesson, we will consider what we learn from Zophar’s words, what we learn from Job’s response, and what we learn about God in regards to suffering and how he runs the world.
