Job’s Response to Bildad
Beginning by brushing off Bildad’s latest reply as irrelevant, Job then tells his friends that they couldn’t possible know everything about God’s wisdom and that wisdom did not originate with them–the human mind. It comes from God.
Verses 2-4 – With great sarcasm, Job attacked Bildad’s comments because he was unable to turn their knowledge into helpful counsel. Compassion produces greater results than criticism or blame.
