Job 22 and 24

  1. Chapter 22. Of what does Eliphaz accuse Job (verse 6-9)?
    List God’s blessings on the humble (verses 21-30).
    Why does Eliphaz’ list of blessings (verse 3) make so little impression on Job?
  2. Chapter 23. Job earnestly desires to find God (verse 3).
    How is he now thinking to God? See verses 5, 6, 10, 13, 16. Is it as a friend or a foe?
  3. Chapter 24. What anomalies does job see in society around him?
    Compare what ‘you’ say (verse 18-20) with what Job says. Does this chapter teach us anything about how to make observations on life?

Notes. 22:2-4. Eliphaz’ argument is that God’s treatment of man is not with a view to any gain or advantage to himself but for man’s sake. Since we cannot suppose that he punishes them for their piety (verse 4), it must be because of their sin.
