Bildad Misspeaks God’s Justice

International Sunday School February 20 2022 Winter #12

Job 8:1-10 NIV  Then Bildad the Shuhite replied:  (2)  “How long will you say such things? Your words are a blustering wind.  (3)  Does God pervert justice? Does the Almighty pervert what is right?  (4)  When your children sinned against him, he gave them over to the penalty of their sin.  (5)  But if you will seek God earnestly and plead with the Almighty,  (6)  if you are pure and upright, even now he will rouse himself on your behalf and restore you to your prosperous state.  (7)  Your beginnings will seem humble, so prosperous will your future be.  (8)  “Ask the former generation and find out what their ancestors learned,  (9)  for we were born only yesterday and know nothing, and our days on earth are but a shadow.  (10)  Will they not instruct you and tell you? Will they not bring forth words from their understanding?

Job 8:1-10 NIV 

Job 8:20-22 NIV  “Surely God does not reject one who is blameless or strengthen the hands of evildoers.  (21)  He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy.  (22)  Your enemies will be clothed in shame, and the tents of the wicked will be no more.”
