Job 6

Friends who don’t understand…

Have you gone through suffering and your friends just didn’t understand you?
Job is in this situation.

His friends have sat with him for 7 days, but when Eliphaz talked, he was not encouraging or understanding.

He answers his friend who basically had no compassion and accuses him of hiding his sin.

4For the arrows of the Almighty are in me;
my spirit drinks their poison;
the terrors of God are arrayed against me.

He talks about his pain that he is in.

24“Teach me, and I will be silent;
make me understand how I have gone astray.
25How forceful are upright words!
But what does reproof from you reprove?

And asked his friend to show him where he is wrong.
