42 chapters of job compressed
wisdom and reverent fear addressed
exemplar job's might
in face of trials and plight
into God's delight
to be blameless and upright
to fear God and shun evil fight
satan roams earth seeking opportunity to derail
our path to righteousness, hail to impale
why is woman both wise (in proverbs) and foolish (job2:10, eve) gale?
is "fearing God for nothing" a satanic jail?
fear God because He is God of life
the story of God-centric job, accepting His good and strife
"naked i came from my mother's womb, and naked i will depart."
the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh is at heart
from womb to tomb
from dust to dust,
good and evil looms upon earth's crust
how shall we then live, blameless and upright we must
job 28:28 "the fear of the Lord - that is wisdom,
and to shun evil is understanding."
"the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom"
proverbs 1:7, 9:10, psalm 111:10 echoing
