The second friend, Bildad, adds his two cents. Get a load of this: “Does God twist justice? Does the Almighty twist what is right?” (v 3) Yes he does, you nailed it, Bildad! But unfortunately, Bildad’s next lines indicate that he believes the answer to those questions is No. He believes that Job must have done something to deserve the hand he has been dealt.
Job responds to Bildad, asking, in the manner of a lawyer, if anyone has ever successfully challenged god. Verses 5-9 contain some very bad science. His rant goes on for the rest of the chapter: “even if I summoned [God] and he responded, I’m not sure he would listen to me. For he attacks me with a storm and repeatedly wounds me without cause.” (v 16-17)
Just more of the same. Can anyone read this and interpret it in a way that Job is NOT angry at god?
