Job 7:17 (NKJV) 17 “What is man, that You should exalt him, That You should set Your heart on him,

Psalm 8:1-3 (David in joy)

Psalm 144:1-4 (David in distress)

Both in joy and distress, Job and David recognized God’s greatness.

Bildad speaks: Job 8:2-6

Job 8:2
Job’s words are like hot air

Job 8:3
God is obviously judging Job because he has sinned.

Job’s children were killed because of their sin

Job 8:6
Job is not as righteous as he claims to be.

Job responds:

Who can stop God from doing what He wants to do, who has a right to question God?

Daniel 4:35

Isaiah 43:12 – 13

Isaiah 45:9

Romans 9:18 – 20

Job 9:13-14
Job says that he is not self righteous, but is powerless against God

Justification means to be declared righteous.

Justification brings forgiveness of sins:

Acts 13:38-39

Justification is based on the righteousness of Christ:

Romans 3:21-22

Romans 5:18

Justification is by faith, not works:
Romans 3:28

Justification is freely given:

Blessed is the man who is forgiven:
