May 7, 2023 - Job 32-37

One more – Elihu – who will speak, a young man full of what he supposes is wisdom and knowledge. But he, like the other three friends, is far off base. He doesn’t know what he’s talking about, though he is convinced of his own wisdom. He even boasts: “Bear with me a little, and I will show you, for I have yet something to say on God's behalf” (36::2). Really? Might come as a surprise to God! But God is about to speak, and wow, how he is about to speak! The words of Isaac Watts foreshadow what is about to come.

The Lord Jehovah reigns,

his throne is built on high;

the garments he assumes

are light and majesty:

his glories shine with beams so bright

no mortal eye can bear the sight.

Through all his ancient works

amazing wisdom shines,

confounds the powers of hell

and breaks their cursed designs;

strong is his arm, and shall fulfil

his great decrees, his sovereign will. –Isaac Watts (1766)
