Job 9:23-24

Job 9:23-24 King James Version (KJV)
23 If the scourge slay suddenly, he will laugh at the trial of the innocent.

24 The earth is given into the hand of the wicked: he covereth the faces of the judges thereof; if not, where, and who is he?

Job 9:23-24 Jubilee Bible 2000 (JUB)

23 If it is the scourge, it slays suddenly, and it does not laugh at the trial of the innocent.

24 The earth is given into the hand of the wicked; he covers the faces of its judges; if it is not he who does this then, who is it and where is he?

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

23 This is a much distorted view of God, God is happy to have His come home but does not take joy in people’s loss. It is better for us to be in God’s presence then in this world but God does laugh at pain, He brings comfort. We being in His presence does give Him praise.

24 The wicked run the world, God granted the world to them because it is fallen but it is given after He comes back to us the Believers. The world is fallen and often times the world in scripture is a reference to the wicked in it. There are corrupt judges but they are to honest and not swayed. God is the only just judge. The fall corruption of man was because of man’s fall in the garden again they did not have the scriptures to rely on for this truth. God allowed this to happen because while Adam gained a garden we gain heaven along with Jesus our Lord.
I agree that as God purposes things, so shall it be; but as for Adam and Eve, they had the scripture indeed to rely on directly from the Word of God.
