God is greater than man….
Elihu continues to speak, but unlike Job’s other friends, he does not speak against Job for being wicked and hiding sin. Instead, he speaks against Job’s attitude and what he has said while suffering.
6 If you sin, how does that affect him?
If your sins are many, what does that do to him?
7 If you are righteous, what do you give to him,
or what does he receive from your hand?
God is greater than man. Whether we are righteous or not, does not benefit him.
12 He does not answer when people cry out
because of the arrogance of the wicked.
13 Indeed, God does not listen to their empty plea;
the Almighty pays no attention to it.
14 How much less, then, will he listen
when you say that you do not see him,
that your case is before him
and you must wait for him,
God is greater than man. He is able to answer us in his own time. God does not answer the wicked, yet when Job calls out God for not answering his plea and accusing God of not paying attention……does that help his case?
