Roles Lost And Confused
Power Or GOD, The
Roles lost Job said to his friends: You think you are so great, with all the answers. But I know as much as you do, and so does everyone else. I have always lived right, and God answered my prayers; now friends make fun of me. Its easy to condemn those who are suffering, when you have no troubles.
Robbers and other godless people live safely at home and say, "God is in our hands!" If you want to learn, then go and ask the wild animals and the birds, the flowers and the fish. Any of them can tell you what the Lord has done. Every living creatures in the hands of God.
We hear with our ears, taste with our tongues,
and gain some wisdom from those who have lived a long time. But God is the real source of wisdom and strength. No one can rebuild what he destroys, or release those he has imprisoned. God can hold back the rain or send a flood, just as he rules over liars and those they lie to.
God destroys counselors, and makes slaves of kings.
God removes priests and others who have great power he confuses wise, experienced advisors, puts mighty kings to shame, and takes away their power. God turns darkness to light; he makes nations strong, then shatters their strength. God strikes their rulers senseless, then leaves them to roam through barren deserts, lost
in the dark, staggering like someone drunk. Job 12:1-25
