Psalms: 134, 138


Job: Here Job’s words have a rather loud ring of self-righteousness. Since what he says is true, it remains humble regardless of how it sounds to me. I can convolute a defense against salvation by works in that Job really wants to know how much or many good works it will take for God to alleviate his burdens. Based on this, I think Job knows such salvation would be a gift from God. As good as Job was (Job 18) and even God testified to his righteousness, it wasn’t good enough. He still bore Adam’s sin if not his own.

Gospel: John 11:17-29

New Testament: Acts 15:1-11

Old Testament: Job 29:1; 31:1-23
