Job: The Lord Answers (Chapter 38)

Then the LORD answered Job out of the storm. He said: "Who is this that darkens my counsel with words without knowledge? Brace yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer me. (Job 38:1-2)

Starting with Job 38 (going through Job 42), I will write out some questions God asks Job. if you have extra time, try reading all the questions, they are interesting, but I don't have the space to write them all here.

Where were you when I laid the earth's foundation? Tell me, if you understand.
Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know! Who stretched a measuring line across it?
Who shut up the sea behind door when it burst forth from the womb, when I made the clouds its garment and wrapped it in thick darkness.
Have you ever given orders to the morning, or shown the dawn its place, that it might take the earth by the edges and shake the wicked out of it?
Have you entered the storehouses of the snow or seen the storehouses of the hail, which I reserve for times of trouble, for days of war and battle?
Does the rain have a father? Who fathers the drops of dew?
Can you raise your voice to the clouds and cover yourself with a flood of water?
Do you send the lightning bolts on their way? Do they report to you, 'Here we are'?
Who has the wisdom to count the clouds? Who can tip over the water jars of the heavens
Do you hunt the prey for the lioness and satisfy the hunger of the lions when they crouch in their dens or lie in wait in a thicket?

Job: His second test

Ok, so Job's second test might not seem very clear to you if you've read Job, but his is when three friends ( Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite) came to visit him, I find it another test because as God says later,  "I am angry with you because you have not spoken of me what is right, as my servant Job has.
Job and his friend spend more than thirty chapter talking, which we will not be discussing, but they are great chapter and if you ever need a passage to read, you might want to consider them. and next time I'll tell you what God asks Job.
