Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

May 18 - Evening

"Then Zophar the Naamathite replied:

'Are all these words to go unanswered?
Is this talker to be vindicated?
Will your idle talk reduce others to silence?
Will no one rebuke you when you mock?
You say to God, ‘My beliefs are flawless
and I am pure in your sight.’
Oh, how I wish that God would speak,
that he would open his lips against you
and disclose to you the secrets of wisdom,
for true wisdom has two sides.
Know this: God has even forgotten some of your sin!'

- Job 11:1-6

Zophar's First of Two Speeches    

Zophar feels the need to speak some reality into Job's idle talk. Zophar came to be sympathetic and comfort his friend job, but Job’s mocking of God and Job’s statements claiming his own self-righteousness cannot go unanswered.

Zophar speaks only two times: Job 11 and Job 20, but it is enough! Zophar cuts right to the quick of the matter and accuses Job of sin and declares his punishment fair. In fact, Zophar tells Job he should consider himself lucky because, “God has even forgotten some of your sin!” Job’s disasters could have been worse if God was actually paying attention to Job and had really given Job his best shot of discipline.

Zophar wishes God would speak for himself instead of letting Job do all the talking because there
are two sides of the story. Zophar would like to hear God’s side of the story!

“Oh, how I wish that God would speak, that he would open his lips against you and disclose to you the secrets of wisdom, for true wisdom has two sides. Know this: God has even forgotten some of your sin.” – Job 11:5-6

Zophar is tired of Job mocking God (11:3) and presenting his theology as if it were "flawless." (11:4). Zophar is upset. This may be why he only speaks twice - Zophar is so angry he just gives up on
this idle talker.

  Christian Quote from Church History
“Man, made in the image of God, has a purpose - to be in relationship to God, who is there. Man forgets his purpose and thus he
forgets who he is and
what life means.”
- Francis Schaeffer
Something to Ponder??

Five sects in modern
Judaism that you may
be confused about:

1- Hasidic Judaism, Jewish mysticism that began in Poland in the 1700’s as a reaction against overly legalistic Judaism. The poor and uneducated turned to mysticsm since they were seperated for Talmud study. (more and more)

2- Reform Judaism, a reformation of Jewish worship in the 1800’s that considers the advances of modern scholarship (here and here)

3- Orthodox Judaism, a movement from the 1800’s that desires to preserve traditional values by strict obedience to the Torah (more)

4- Reconstructionism, an American based movement from the 1900’s that believes Judaism is an evolving religious civilization with standards of conduct established by the Jewish community. There is considerable theological diversity with the movement.
(here and here)

5- Zionism, a secular political movement focused on establishing a national homeland in Palestine
for the Jews. (here and here)

tombs, rock cut, loculi, kokhim

Inside a rolling stone tomb in Galilee are niches called loculi (or kokhim). These are narrow shafts cut in stone inside the tomb where the bodies would be layed. After about a year the flesh would have decayed and the bones would be gathered and placed in an ossuary. This was the most common style of burial, but the second most common was the tomb that housed a burial bench called arcosolia which served as a resting place for the deceased body until the bones where collected. (Details here, here and here.)
