Book of Job Chapter 29-31 Summary

Job Completes His Words

  • One more time! 
  • Yep, more lamenting. 
  • Job isn't happy with the pain and embarrassing nature of his position. He reminisces about the good ol' days and tries to understand why he's being punished.
  • He concludes that he has done all God asked, and that God owes him an explanation. Wait, where have we heard that before? Oh yeah, that's right—everywhere in this entire book.
  • Think X-Men here. Really. The whole point of Wolverine's scenes is to show you that Hugh Jackman is a cool dude. That way, the audience is totally with him when he demands answers about his origins.
  • Same with Job. It's an old trick.
