Job 7:20-21

Job 7:20-21 King James Version (KJV)
20 I have sinned; what shall I do unto thee, O thou preserver of men? why hast thou set me as a mark against thee, so that I am a burden to myself?

21 And why dost thou not pardon my transgression, and take away my iniquity? for now shall I sleep in the dust; and thou shalt seek me in the morning, but I shall not be.

Job 7:20-21 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

20 IfI have sinned, what have I done to you, watcher of humanity?
Why have you made me as a target for yourself,
so thatI have become a burden to myself?
21 And why do you not pardon my transgression
and take away my guilt?
For now I shall lie in the dust,
and you will seek me, butI will be no more.”

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

20 We think sometimes because ours sins don’t harm anyone that are sins are not as sinful but our sins that we think don’t harm anyone still is the reason Jesus died on the cross. The jailer however had no reason to arrest Job because of his sins, but we should be more concerned with our faults with the Lord than those of this world because when we have faults with the world then we have faults with the Lord and fixing them with Him will lead us to fix our troubles with the world. Job felt as though he was being attacked and often when we feel this it is by those closest to us but they do it out of concern for us it just comes out the wrong way.

21 The most important forgiveness to seek is the Lord’s but we should seek man’s forgiveness when we wrong them but Job had not wronged his friends and because of that they could not do for Job about his sin. Job was just wanting to die amd have things be over with.
