Job is humble

约伯为人谦逊 Job is humble_

First, let’s look at the first verse: “There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and shunned evil.” This passage is the first evaluation of Job recorded in the Bible. It is the comment on Job from the writer of Job, which of course also represents men’s evaluation of Job. The evaluation is: that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and shunned evil. Then, let’s see God’s evaluation of Job: there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that fears God, and shuns evil. (Job 1:8) Of the two evaluations, one is from men, and the other is from God. They are two evaluations with the same content. It clearly shows that Job’s actions and behavior were known to men and were also commended by God. That is to say, Job’s behavior before men accorded with his behavior before God. He always laid his actions and intents before God for God to search, and he “feared God and shunned evil.” So, in God’s eyes he was the only one on earth who “was perfect and upright, and feared God and shunned evil.”
