Open Window - Job 37 to 42 (made with Spreaker) by EsmeraldaPadilla published on 2013-01-30T08:05:50Z This long poem deals with one the deepest problems of humanity: how to explain sin and suffering if their is a God powerful enough to do something about them? The book begins with three sets of speeches by Job's friends Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar. Each one tries to explain Job's misery in a different way. A fourth man, Elihu, tries to summarize the situation and offers yet another explanation for Job's suffering. Finally, the Lord himself speaks to Job, and Job recognizes that we do not so much need answers to life's problems as we need God himself. God then heals Job and blesses him far beyond his former state. The mystery that surrounds human existence and the need to trust in God run throughout the book. We simply do not know enough to explain why things happen the way they do. But God does know why everything happens and will work good for those who love Him. The profound truth is that when we have nothing left but God, God is enough.
