Job 4-25

If you are following the Bible Reading Plan, you should be somewhere around Job 15 today. You are right in the middle of the cycle of conversations between Job and his counselors. I think it would help if you jumped ahead and read chapter 42. In Job 42:7-9 you read about God's response to Job's counselors when He rebukes them and calls them to repentance.  

Although Job does not understand why God has caused his suffering, he does express his faith in God. 
In 9:32-35 he recognizes his need for a mediator.
In 16:19-21 he knows his mediator is in heaven.
In 19:25-26 he has faith that his redeemer lives.

There are three cycles to the speeches of Job and his Counselors
