Day 10 Reading – Job Chapters 24-28
For a little while they are exalted, and then they are gone; they are brought low and gathered up like all others; they are cut off like heads of grain
Job 24:24 NIV
A little commentary knowledge courtesy of Barne’s Notes on the Bible:
They are exalted for a little while – This was the proposition which Job was maintaining. His friends affirmed that the wicked were punished for their sins in this life, and that great crimes would soon meet with great calamities. This Job denies, and says that the fact was, that they were “exalted.” Yet he knew that it was to be but for a little time, and he believed that they would, at no distant period, receive the proper reward of their deeds. He maintains, however, that their death might be tranquil and easy, and that no extraordinary proof of the divine displeasure would be perceived in the manner of their departure.
How you die is not a reflection of you lived or how you will spend eternity?
