Book of Job Chapter 12-14 Summary

Job Issues His Reply to His Amigos

  • Now that he knows all his friends are kind of jerks, he talks back. After all, he says, he's their equal and, well, they're not being very nice.
  • He knows that God is almighty, sure. But he still thinks he deserves an explanation for why God is shredding his life to pieces.
  • He's mortal. His time is short. He wants some answers.
