I missed it. It was right there and I completely missed these important details. Job 40:2b (b means the 2nd half of a verse), “Let him who accuses God answer Him,” capitalization mine. Then in verse 8, “Would you discredit My justice? Would you condemn Me to justify yourself?” And again, in verses 10b-11, “Who then is able to stand against Me? Who has a claim against Me that I must pay? Everything under heaven belongs to Me.”
All this time I had in mind that Job was completely innocent but I was wrong. The hope? Even though Job accused God, God still spoke to Job & even blessed him.
To the friend who tried to get me to see, I apologize. Will you forgive me?
