I'm still trying to catch up with my reading after having missed both Sabbath and Sunday. Today I finished reading Job (should be on Psalm 45). Tomorrow I'll try to read through Psalm 45 and then I will be only one day behind. Hopefully I can catch up fully by this weekend.
Job is still a bit confusing to me. I understand the basic story. Satan attacks Job because God says that Job is perfect. Job mourns his losses but doesn't curse God. Job's friends chastise Job for harboring secret sin when Job hasn't done anything wrong. Another friend sticks up for Job but lectures him about not portraying God correctly. God tells Job that Job isn't God. Job gains back all his prior wealth (plus some) and has a second set of children.
I don't understand why Elihu was lecturing Job. I also don't understand the exchange between God and Job. I'm going to add this book to my list of Bible topics to come back and study later this year. While I am reading through the Bible quickly, I miss the in-depth study.
