Book of Job Chapter 20 Summary

Zophar & His Asps

  • Zophar decides to beat a dead horse.
  • Not literally.
  • He tells Job that the wicked get what they deserve from God. 
  • For good measure, he adds that the venom of asps will poison people's stomachs and kill the sinners. Well that's graphic.
