Elihu, God and Justice

Handwritten page from the book of Job chapter 33 verse 23 through chapter 34 verse 20
Job 33:23-34:20

Synopsis     Job 33:23-34:20     7/15/2021 

Elihu refuted Job’s claims about God. First, he challenged Job’s belief that God hid himself. And then, he contradicted Job’s second argument. God is. And justice comes after creation.

Elihu, God and Justice 

In the state of utter dependence, created things cannot speak rationally about justice with respect to their creator. Elihu recognized this essential disparity and deferred to God. 

God and Justice 

God is God. And I am not. And that is right. It is beautiful. It is true. And it is just.  

“You have been told, O mortal, what is good, and what the LORD requires of you: Only to do justice and to love goodness, and to walk humbly with your God.” Mic 6:8
