👉 Job is experiencing inner turmoil:
• longs for
• who looks
👉 Job is experiencing external distress:
• worms and dirt on flesh
• skin hardens
• skin breaks out
👉 Because of this, he speaks from his feelings and not facts:
• my eye will never see good again
• he who goes to the grave doesn’t come up again
👉 Part of comforting grieving people is 1 – don’t judge their words when their spirits are in anguish (v 11) and 2 – remind them of what is true.
Remind them of God’s character. Tell them who they are in Christ. Recite the promises of scripture to them.
When the time is appropriate.
Help them remember.
You are loved.
