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?
