Job 12:18-20

Job 12:18-20 King James Version (KJV)
18 He looseth the bond of kings, and girdeth their loins with a girdle.
19 He leadeth princes away spoiled, and overthroweth the mighty.
20 He removeth away the speech of the trusty, and taketh away the understanding of the aged.

Job 12:18-20
JuliaSmith 18 He loosed the bonds of kings, and he will gird upon their loins a girdle. 19 Leading away priests stripped off, and he will overthrow the mighty. 20 Removing the lip to the faithful, and he will take discernment of old men.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

18 Kings overthrown and had the men took over have them jailed and even killed. No king or ruler is more powerful then God. Even though they may not follow God He allows what happens and can stop it anytime He chooses.

19 Priests weren’t chosen at this time but they were servants of the Lord. We as Christians are all priest before God, saying we all can go before Him. Priests need to humble just as everyone should be humble, We should be humbled when we serve Jesus and trust Him to give us power.

20 God can take away people trust so they don’t talk, we should value being trusted but value our relationship with the Lord more. Wisdom often comes with age but it can fade with age to as one looses the mind due to age.
