Book of Job Chapter 23-24 Summary

What Talking to God Might Look Like

  • Job reflects on what he would do if he were actually allowed to present his case to God. 
  • He makes the call: he would "heed" him but not "contend" with him. God is, after all, God. Contending may not be the best idea.
  • Next up? A long monologue about the state of violence on earth. 
  • Yeah, this one's a downer.
