Job’s wish.

Job 16:21: “I wish that someone might arbitrate between a man and God just as a man pleads for his friend.”

Aren’t you glad Job’s wish was granted through Jesus?

1 Timothy 2:5-6: “For there is one God and one mediator between God and man, a man, Christ Jesus, who gave Himself – a ransom for all, a testimony at the proper time.”

2 Peter 1:3-4: “For His divine power has given us everything required for life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness. By these He has given us very great and precious promises, so that through them you may share in the divine nature, escaping the corruption that is in the world because of evil desires.”

I don’t really have any commentary to add to that – there are too many thoughts spinning in my head regarding how profound that would be to Job; a righteous man burdened by the effects of sin and man’s wickedness, and unshakable in his recognition of God’s goodness despite the bad things which happened to him. That, and the Scripture just speaks for itself!
