Job 28



Verses 1-28

Job 28:1-11 — Man's Endless Search for Treasures- Job 28:1-11 illustrate man's endless search for hidden treasures in the earth. Job 28:11 is the key verse to this opening passage because it summarizes the first eleven verses by saying that man brings forth the hidden things of the earth.

Job 28:11, "He bindeth the floods from overflowing; and the thing that is hid bringeth he forth to light."

Job 28:13 Man knoweth not the price thereof; neither is it found in the land of the living.

Job 28:13 — "neither is it found in the land of the living" - Comments- Wisdom is not found among men; but it is found in God alone ( Deuteronomy 2:27-28).

Daniel 2:27-28, "Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said, The secret which the king hath demanded cannot the wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, the soothsayers, shew unto the king; But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these;"
