Job 6:14-23 If You Could See Me Now.

Job 6:14-23 If You Could See Me Now.

Job believed that even a person who had no fear of God should show kindness to an afflicted friend, but he believed he was suffering from those within the covenant – speaking and acting deceitfully (14-15). They are like trying to find water frozen over in winter, and dried up in the summer (16-17). “The paths of their way turn aside, they go nowhere and perish.” (18) Job’s usual interactions with caravans and travellers will be disappointed when they saw him now (19-21). They become confused and afraid, because they knew Job to be a man who could take care of himself – he did not need to resort to bribes, or ask for military support (22-23).
