Job 27:1- 30:31
Job 28 is an amazing little read.
It kicks off (vs1-11) emphasizing humans amazing cleverness with respect to discovering and uncovering earth’s riches.
Yet inspite of this ingenuity there are some things humanity just does not know (vv.12-19) true wisdom they cannot discover, this most valuable treasure alludes them.
God alone shares the monopoly on this precious resource (vv.20-28) and in his mercy speaks into our world the place of wisdom:
28 And he said to man,
‘The fear of the Lord—that is wisdom,
and to shun evil is understanding.’ “
