Job’s Great Confession; Our Great Hope

By David Ettinger

The Great Confession
The story of Job is one of the Bible’s most familiar to both believers and unbelievers. The heartbreaking account of his incomprehensible suffering has struck a chord in millions of readers over the centuries.

Yet in the midst of his unspeakable pain,
Job utters the most precious of all confessions regarding God. His powerhouse
avowal of conviction and assurance emanates from the depths of his deepest
despair with wondrous expectation and unyielding hope:

As for me, I know that my Redeemer lives, And at the last He will take His stand on the earth. Even after my skin is destroyed, Yet from my flesh I shall see God; Whom I myself shall behold, And whom my eyes will see and not another. My heart faints within me! (Job 19:25-27).

This extraordinary confession has
been called “the crescendo of faith to which Job attains.”[1]
