Zophar Has Had It With Job

In chapter 11 Zophar speaks:

"What a flood of words...
Job, do you think you can carry on like this
and we will say nothing...?"

"I wish God would give you a piece of his mind,
Tell you what's what!
I wish He'd show you how wisdom looks from
the inside, for true wisdom is mostly 'inside'"

"But you can be sure of this.
You haven't gotten half of what you deserve!"

Zophar is so harsh!

I wonder if God included all of these conversations
because some part of this book applies to everyone
at some time in their lives. These friends appear
to be waiting for Job to finish so they can latch
onto something they disagree with. "With friends
like these, who needs enemies!"

See the new story: “Grieving.”
