Ira Michaelson – Treasures from the Tanakh – Job 31:1-40

Posted By


In this week’s episode of Treasures from the Tanakh, Ira & Jono discuss Job 31. We discuss the contrast between Job 31 and the previous chapters, as prior, Job declares all that he is done in his position of influence. However, in this chapte he begins to list all of his moral qualities, and then lists the punishment that would occur had he actually failed in this area of morality. The question is, did Job in his influnence perform out of obligation, or from a burning love for G-d that permeated his being? Does not he see my ways and number all my steps? If I have walked with falsehood and my foot has hastened to deceit; Let me be weighed in a just balance, and let God know my integrity! – Job 31:4-6
