Book of Job Chapter 40 Summary

God: Take Two

  • Job splutters a mere two verses in response to God's line of questioning. Wouldn't you be a little freaked out, too?
  • And then…God cuts him off. He's known to be an interrupter.
  • This time, he has some important news: Job is not guilty or innocent, just powerless. Job has been condemning God to justify himself, and that is just plain uncool.
