Job 29-33

Chapter 29
29.4  the friendly counsel of God...  This could mean a couple things, but I like the description of God's counsel as friendly, even if it does probably refer to God's favor on Job and not His counsel in general.
Chapter 30
30.25  Has not my soul grieved for the poor?  This priority of honest compassion is instructive.  Jesus was said to be "moved with compassion" several times in the Gospels when he saw the condition of the crowds.
Chapter 31  A great chapter
31.38  the land cries out...  For some reason, I find this to be a facinating personification and way of thinking about sin, esp. murder.
Chapter 32
32.2  He justified himself rather than God...  An thought provoking thing to keep in mind when we begin to ask God, "Why?"
Chapter 33
33.13  Good things to remember.
