Book of Job
Book of Job Chapter 27 Summary
Job Maintains His Position, Divine Justice
- In verses 1-7, Job refuses to back down from his earlier position. Yeah, it's a little repetitive, but hey, the guy has gone through a lot.
- Verses 7-23 is where it gets interesting.
- We're not sure who's talking, but it's a discussion of divine justice and how the evildoers (nonbelievers) will get what's coming to them by God.
- If this is Job speaking, it's probably an ironic speech, given that he's been yammering on about how divine justice has wronged him, a righteous man.
