Expository Notes of Dr. Thomas Constable

Job 13



Verses 20-28

Job"s presentation of his case to God13:20-28

As in his replies to Eliphaz ( Job 7:12-21) and Bildad ( Job 9:28-33; Job 10:2-19), Job also addressed God in this reply to Zophar ( Job 13:20 to Job 14:22). Job asked God to stop afflicting him and to stop terrifying him ( Job 13:20-21). He also requested a courtroom confrontation with God ( Job 13:22). God did not reply, so Job asked Him to list his sins ( Job 13:23). Still there was no answer. This led Job to ask why God was hiding and hostile to him ( Job 13:24-26). Frustrated by God"s lack of response, Job sank down again into despair.
