Job is then restored to health, happiness and prosperity beyond his earlier state.
Foreshadowings: As Job was pondering the cause of his misery, three questions came to his mind, all of which are answered only in our Lord Jesus Christ. First, in verse 4, Job asks, "Who can bring what is pure from the impure? " Job’s question comes from a heart that recognizes it cannot possibly please God or become justified in His sight. Therefore, a great gulf exists between man and God, caused by sin.
This may not seem possible to us, but our minds are not God’s mind.
It is true that we can’t expect to understand His mind perfectly, as He reminds us, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, says the LORD.
Therefore I despise myself and repent in dust and ashes." Brief Summary: The book of Job opens with a scene in heaven where Satan comes to accuse Job before God.
