Job chapter 35
Elihu says to Job do you think it’s ok. For you to say your right not God? And you ask him what profit do you get for not sinning.
Elihu says I would like to tell you and your friends, look up to the heavens. if you sin what does that do to him? If your sins are many , how does it affect him? If you are righteous, what do you give him? Or what does he recieve from you? Your wickedness affects only man like yourself. Your righteousness affects only the son of men.
Elihu is saying look to God, look where he is at, if you sin how does it affect him. What is your sin going to do to God. If you are righteous what does he recieve from you, what are you giving to God. Your wickedness only affects those that are like you , your nieghbor, your righteousness only man can recieve your gifts of righteousness. What Elihu fails to mention is that God is pleased with hus when we dress in our righteousness.
Men cry out under pressure, the plea for relief from God. But no one says where is God my maker? Who teaches more to us than the beast of the earth, and makes us wiser than the birds. He does not answer when men cry out because of the arrogance of the wicked.
Elihu is daying that we end up ubder pressure but we want to cry out for relief but not for Gods presence, he says but God doesn’t answer us because of our arrogance, saying I did nothing wrong why am I going through this. Basically what Job is saying.
God does not listen to their empty plea, he pays no attention to it. How much less will he listen when you say that you don’t see him, and that his anger never punishes and he doesn’t take note of what the wicked is doing. Job opens his mouth and says nothing, he speaks without knowledge.
Elihu is saying that God isn’t listening to Job because he isn’t making sense that Job is speaking arrogantly. This chapter reminds me how quick we can go from speaking Gods words to personal opinions. Elihu was right our sins affect our neighbors so be careful how you treat others what Elihu was wrong about is it does affect God. When his children cries he hears(Job 34:28). When we are righteous our neighbors are blessed which is pleasing to the father. Please remember to do as Job and dress in your righteousness everyday be blessed
