Job 42:7-17

1. Job’s friends would certainly have agreed with that entire God said to Job.
Yet God is angry with them.
‘You have not’, he says, ‘spoken of me what is right’ (verse 7).
Why was this so? Was it their haste in condemning Job, their doctrinal prejudice, their lack of sympathy, or what was it?
2. Job and quarreled with God, doubted his justice, insisted on his own innocence, wanted to end his life.
Yet God said he had spoken ‘what is right’.
Why?
