Book of Job Chapter 9 Summary

Job Regrets the Man-God Connection

  • Job wants a mediator. Can't someone just judge who's right—him or God? Because really, if God is omniscient and omnipotent, then what he did was really, really mean.
  • He laments that there is no justice between mortals and immortals, and then he demands a trial with God. 
  • Judge Judy wasn't around then.
