Book of Job Chapter 28 Summary

Wisdom Interlude

  • Getting tired? Good. It's time to shake things up.
  • In this unsigned interlude, the speaker riffs for a while about where the seeker can find wisdom. Answer? We're still not sure.
  • We suggest you go back and read this passage—if pretty poetic. It doesn't hurt that we're still in poetry here. 
  • The moral of the story is that wisdom lives with God. To fear the scope and power of this divine wisdom is to be truly wise in a human sense. Kind of how a truly wise man knows that he knows nothing.
