Gilbert House Fellowship #7 – Job 6-10

tissot-job_and_his_three_friendsWE CONTINUE of study of the Book of Job with chapter 6 as Job responds to the rebuke of Eliphaz the Temanite and hears from Bildad the Shuhite. We begin to understand the depth of Job’s despair as he declares that God has already judged and found him guilty so that his only possible release is the ultimate darkness of Sheol.


  1. Thank you guys for this book of Job study, it has been a book that has left many questions unanswered and you guys have answered a lot of those questions for me.
    Much Love and Peace.
    In Christ
    David P Osborne.

      Thank you! We look forward to starting up the Old Testament again in June. We should give Job another go starting around August, and since we’ve learned a thing or two over the last five years it should be even more interesting this time around!

  2. Please tell me how you think God would interpret Hospice and hospitals who help people using drugs to keep them from suffering before death. From what I have understood it shortens their lives. I could be wrong but that has always been my understanding. Do you believe this is the same as helping them end their lives?

      Hi, Diana: That’s a tough question. It’s hard to know how to address that without knowing the level of pain one is suffering and how it’s being treated. I would say this: Hospice care and pain management is better than assisted suicide.

  3. Bildad also means “person of contention”.
    In the last verse of chapter 10, shadow of death is mentioned, and occurs 10 times in the book of Job. It also is mentioned in Psalm 23.
