Job offering sacrifice before the trials

约伯献祭4 Job offers sacrifice_

III Job

1. Evaluation of Job from the Bible and God

(Job 1:1) 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.

(Job 1:5) And it was so, when the days of their feasting were gone about, that Job sent and sanctified them, and rose up early in the morning, and offered burnt offerings according to the number of them all: for Job said, It may be that my sons have sinned, and cursed God in their hearts. Thus did Job continually.

(Job 1:8) And the LORD said to Satan, Have you considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that fears God, and shuns evil?

What do you see is the main point of these passages? The three short passages of scripture are all related to Job. Although the content is not much, it makes very clear what kind of man Job is. Here, by giving an account of Job’s daily actions and behavior, it tells everyone that God’s evaluation of Job is not groundless, but based on reason and evidence. The three passages of scripture tell us that both men’s evaluation of Job (Job 1:1) and God’s evaluation of Job (Job 1:8) are based on his actions and behavior before God and men (Job 1:5).
