Job 15

I sense more than a little offense taken by Eliphaz in the first part of this chapter =)

"Is the comfort God gives you not enough for you, even when words are spoken gently to you?" v11

Good question though.

vs 5- Your sins are telling your mouth what to say. Your words are based on clever deception. But why should I condemn you? Your own mouth does!

vs.35- They conceive trouble and give birth to evil

Covering over our own sins will not help us... with unconfessed sin, it festers and emerges through our actions or words. Praying the psalm "create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me" and "see if there is any offensive way in me"... asking God to show me where I have done wrong is so important in having my whole life be honoring to Him.
