Job 6:29-30

Job 6:29-30 King James Version (KJV)
29 Return, I pray you, let it not be iniquity; yea, return again, my righteousness is in it.

30 Is there iniquity in my tongue? cannot my taste discern perverse things?

Job 6:29-30 Lexham English Bible (LEB)
29 Please turn, let no injustice happen;
indeed,turn,my righteousness is still intact.
30 Is there injustice on my tongue?
Or can my palate not discern calamity?

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

29 Job was repeating what they were telling him. They wanted him to have the right life for the Lord but they did not check to see his sin they were just blaming him, Job was not perfect even though he may have thought he was. Sometimes you have to convince people that they sin so they can see their need for Jesus but you are never to just break them down as Job’s friends were for him, Job followed God and he would have not needed to be told of his sins, we as Christians often times don’t need to be told our sins but the Spirit tells us. Job was walking with the Lord this made him right, and thru Christ and our walk with Him we are made right.

30 They did not believe Job because bad things had happened to him but this idea is not biblical so of the most successful people are that way because they mistreated others, our rewards are not in this life but in the one in His glory. Job followed the Lord so he knew right from wrong if he did not the Lord would put conviction on him.
Job's faith was tried because Job was a righteous man. But when tragedy hit his family he was somewhat at a loss but would not turn his face from God.
Don't we do the same thing when hard times hit our perfect little display of life? Why? If what is trying to teach hasn't been taught by the Holy Ghost, they have no preaching of truth for the people. Hard to teach why your being attacked when the teacher has no understanding as well.


I know that there is a lot more to the Job story but, for sure, God wants us to be humble before him....one of my worse sins I'm sure!
Of all of Job's friends, only one of them told him the truth. His name was " Elihu" He was the only one God did not chastise for speaking wrongfully.
