Listen from:
So far as Job’s outward life is concerned, he does not have a bad conscience. His so-called comforters were always trying to convince Job that there must be some hidden sins in his life which were causing all this trouble. But here he answers these charges. We must remember that Job has not yet made the great discovery. But so far as his life before men is concerned, it is faultless. He knew God far better than his friends did. He longed to be closer to God.
V.10 He did not know all this would bring glory to God, but he did know that he was not a hypocrite.
V.12 Beautiful words. God’s word was more important to him than his daily food!
