Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

May 17 - Morning

Then Job replied...
“...What is mankind that you make so much of them,
    that you give them so much attention,
that you examine them every morning
    and test them every moment?
Will you never look away from me,
    or let me alone even for an instant?
If I have sinned, what have I done to you,
    you who see everything we do?
Why have you made me your target?
    Have I become a burden to you?
Why do you not pardon my offenses
    and forgive my sins?
For I will soon lie down in the dust;
    you will search for me, but I will be no more."

- Job 7:17-21

Job Attacks a Theological Concept Concerning the Nature of God    

Assuming that the theology is true that states that man is unrighteous and that God in his holiness must punish sin, Job speaks to the Lord with a complaint about the nature of God himself. God seems to be obsessed with a pointless activity that has no end. What chance does man have? If man’s suffering is the result of God continually observing man and finding sins that need punished then this is a vicious cycle of vanity. Job is telling God he is out of balance and off center because:

 “You (God) make so much of them (man) that you give them so much attention, you examine them every morning and test them every moment?”

Job is saying, “Ok, if I am always sinning in God’s eyes, and God is constantly observing my life, then I can expect nothing except a constant flow of disaster, disappointments, punishment and penalties from God. Which leads to Job’s next conclusion concerning this false concept:

“Will you never look away from me, or let me alone even for an instant?”

In other words, stop being so obsessed with my sin and find something else to do.
What have I done to you that makes you want to punish every little slip I make?

Job tells God to “pardon my offenses and forgive my sins” because “I will soon lie down in the dust”
in death. Then “you will search for me, but I will be no more.” This is Job's statement of attack on God’s own meaningless nature and his thoughtless participation in an empty existence.

  Christian Quote from Church History

"The older generation may have a hard time keeping up with the younger, but let's remember that as long 
as we are still breathing,
we are leading the way."
- Billy Graham, age 92



Something to Ponder??

Psalm 119 has a reference to God’s word (statutes, promise, decrees, laws, commands, etc.) in
174 of the 176 verses.
Psalm 119 is also the
longest chapter in the Bible.

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Bekor (Hb) – Firstborn (Eng) – the Hebrew word bekor identifies the firstborn or the oldest son who received the privileges of the family blessing. The bekor would be the spiritual leader of the family and also the social leader of the family who received a double portion of the father’s estate.


Archaeological discoveries at Jericho corroborate the biblical account:

Joshua 6:20 “at the sound of the trumpet, when the men gave a loud shout, the wall collapsed.”
Archaeology: At the time of Jericho’s fall there were mud brick walls that collapsed in some areas unexpectedly.

Joshua 6:24“they burned the whole city and everything in it.”
Archaeology: Buildings in Jericho were destroyed by fire.

Joshua 3:15 “Now the Jordan is at flood stage all during harvest.”
Archaeology: Many storage jars discovered filled with grain showing these three facts:

  1. the battle occurred after spring harvest
  2. Israel did not plunder the city, but left everything there (Js.6:17)
    (exception: Achan)
  3. there was no siege, the city was not starved out, but fell quickly

Joshua 6:22 “Go into the prostitute’s house and bring her out and all who belong to her, in accordance with your oath to her.”
Archaeology: Part of the wall did not collapse

Joshua 6:26- “Joshua pronounced this solemn oath: “Cursed before the Lord is the one who undertakes to rebuild this city, Jericho.”
Archaeology: The city of Jericho was not rebuilt nor occupied for many generations after it fell

Confession to Action   Facts and Information
Do I blame God for my problems?
Do I run from God because I am trying to hide from more complicated issues?
God is the source of strength, hope and guidance.
I will go to the Lord who makes the crooked place straight and gives meaning instead of emptiness.
  "Whoever would foster love covers over an offense,
    but whoever repeats the matter separates
close friends."

- Proverbs 17:9

Jehoahaz taken captive in 608 BC

Jehoahaz taken captive into Egypt in 608 according to
2 Kings 23, Jeremiah 22:1-19, 2 Chronicles 36:2-4

Galyn walks along the foundation of Herod's palace in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Cesarea. His fresh water swimming pool was in the center
and aqueducts supplied the water for the fresh water pool in the
palace built into the salt water sea. (More here and here. Cesarea here)
