Job 8:16-18

Job 8:16-18 King James Version (KJV)
16 He is green before the sun, and his branch shooteth forth in his garden.
17 His roots are wrapped about the heap, and seeth the place of stones.
18 If he destroy him from his place, then it shall deny him, saying, I have not seen thee.

Job 8:16-18 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

16 He is thriving before the sun,
and his plant shoots spread over his garden.
17 His roots twine over a stone heap;
he sees a house of stone.
18 If he destroys him from his place,
then it deceives him, saying, ‘I have never seen you.’

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

16 The world is full of evil; it grows great in the world around us. They are like weeds trying to take away from our growth and try to cause us to die spiritually and sometimes even physically. We need to Son to grow as Christians.

17 Those of the world are not rooted in the Rock of Salvation Jesus so they have to look from place to place to find somewhere to lay there roots but nothing works and often times those of the world change where they are rooted time and time again because Christ is the only good foundation for growth.

18 Those of the world can be involved in something and be pulled out and those there would not help them but consider them a trader, we as Christians can run from the Lord and He starts to pull us back home. I would rather have the world deny me then to have my Lord not know me.
