Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

May 15 - Morning

"In the land of Uz there lived a man whose name was Job. This man was blameless and upright; he feared God and shunned evil. He had seven sons and three daughters, and he owned seven thousand sheep, three thousand camels, five hundred yoke of oxen and five hundred donkeys, and had a large number of servants. He was the greatest man among all the people of the East."

- Job 1:1-3

Sunset on the Sea of Galilee; Click to go to next devotion  

The Land of Uz was likely in Edom or northwest Arabia. The events in the book of Job could be dated to the days of Abraham around 2000 BC. The fact that the word satan is used with the definite article (“the satan”) indicates an early date before Satan began to be used as a proper name. The name Job also was a common name in the days of Abraham. “Job” means “Where is father?” It is possible that Moses wrote the book of Job while he was in the land of Midian after fleeing Egypt, but before he returned for the Exodus. That would make the book of Job one of the oldest historical accounts and the first written book of scripture.

Job is introduced without genealogy which eliminates the probability that he is a predecessor or descendent of the family of Abraham. Yet, Job is given specific details about his life, his family and his role as the father/priest of his family, which again points to a time before the covenant of Abraham and the Mosaic Covenant. Also, Job’s length of years in his life correspond with the length of days lived in Abraham’s time (Job 42:16 and Genesis 25:7)

Job is described as a worshipper of the true God and lived a blameless and upright life and shunned evil. These four characteristics are here mentioned by the author, but they will be repeated and confirmed by the Lord (Job 1:8, 2:3) and by Job himself (Job 23:11-12). Job is considered “the greatest man among all the people of the East” and he has the family and the possessions to back that claim up.

  Christian Quote from Church History
"Do all the good you can...
By all the means you can...
In all the ways you can...
In all the places you can...
At all the times you can...
To all the people you can...
As long as ever you can."

- John Wesley
Something to Ponder??

The Hebrew words for salvation come from the root yasa which portrays the meanings of width, spaciousness, and freedom from constraint. These descriptions all reflect the underlying meaning of yasa which is deliverance.

Salvation in the Old Testament refers to:
1. Deliverance from danger, distress, enemies,
Egyptian slavery
(Exodus 14:13; 15:2)
2. Deliverance from Babylonian exile
(Isaiah 46:13; 52:10-11)
3. Deliverance from adversaries
(Psalms 106:10)
4. Deliverance from defeat
(Deuteronomy 20:4)
5. Deliverance from oppression
(Judges 3:31)
6. Deliverance from social decay
(Hosea 1:7)
7. Deliverance to personal welfare
(Job 30:15)
8. Messianic deliverance (Luke 1:69, 71, 77)

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Shapel (Hb) – Humble (Eng) – the Hebrew word shapel means “to be low,” “to sink down” an “to be humiliated.” Shapel does not usually refer to actually being low or sinking downward, but is used in a spiritual sense or figurative sense that means the opposite of pride and self-promotion.
Shapel is what God does to the wicked and sinful in 1 Samuel 2:7.


Among the archaeological remains of Ephesus is the Celsus Library built around 110-135 AD. The Celsus Library was used to hold thousands of scrolls and books which were common in this ancient world. History records many libraries and booksellers were common among the street venders in large cities. This Celsus Library, which was located in the main part of Ephesus, was also used to host public speakers and educational lectures. It is interesting that Luke records Paul speaking daily over a two year period (53-54 AD) in a similar lecture hall in Ephesus called “the lecture hall of Tyrannus”
(Acts 19:9)

Do I pray? And, if I do pray do I lose interest and never repeat my request?
I will focus on the needs of myself and others with consistent, daily prayer and never give up.
