Job Simplified- Chapter 25

Chapter 25
How then can man be justified with God?
Job 25:4

Bildad interrupts
God is great!
v1 Bildad, who belonged to the people called Shuhites, answered. He said:
v2 God is the greatest ruler. You should be afraid of him. He causes heaven to be at peace. v3 You cannot count his armies. God made the light, so he sees everyone.
v4 God does not imagine that any person is good. He knows that nobody is innocent. v5 The moon does not seem bright to God. He can even see that the stars are not perfect.
v6 So, God thinks that a man is like a tiny animal in the soil. In fact, men are like the tiny animals
that eat dead bodies in the grave.

Verse 1
Bildad interrupted Job.
 He knew that God is very great. So Bildad thought that God controlled everything.
Bildad also thought that people are unimportant. And he thought that people do not deserve God’s help.
Verses 2-3
These verses are correct. God is powerful. He is the ruler of heaven. Everybody should respect him. He has a vast army of angels. The angels obey God’s commands.
Verses 4-5
Bildad repeated the ideas in Eliphaz’s first speech (Job 4:17-19). Bildad was right that every person does wrong things against God (Romans 3:23). But Bildad did not say that God wants to forgive us (Romans 3:24). God forgives us when we confess our evil deeds to him.
So nobody is really perfect. But Job was a good man (Job 1:1).
Job trusted God. And God forgave Job’s errors.
Verse 6
God protects people who are poor and weak (Psalm 12:5). Even the animals are special to God. But Jesus taught that people are more valuable to God than animals (Matthew 6:26).
Jesus became a man like us (Hebrews 2:6-9). He did this so that people could become the children of God. And he did it so that people can become members of God’s family (Hebrews 2:11-14).
