Ok, so now Job is really at the edge. And everyone who wants to say that Job doesn’t curse God… that God won our little bet… has got to have an issue with this. Now I appreciate the legal and semantic ins and out… but here’s where Job curses the day he was born, he wishes that he’d never been created.
Then he says what he really wants is an audience with God. He says to his friends, I know the arguments that you have made to me… I’ve made these arguments myself. But now it’s come to me… and I want the answer to why. He says, “My eyes have seen all this and understood it. What you know, I also know. But I desire to take my case to a higher power. To argue my case with God.”
