   Discussion: "IF YOU WOULD ONLY HOLD YOUR PEACE!"
Apostle M. R. Taylor · 11 years, 2 months ago

"IF YOU WOULD ONLY HOLD YOUR PEACE!"

 

Job 13:1-5 KJV. "Job answers Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite. He is familiar with their platitudes."

1. Lo, mine eye hath seen all this, mine ear hath heard and understood it.

2. What ye know, the same do I know also: I am not inferior unto you.

3. Surely I would speak to the Almighty, and I desire to reason with God.

4. But ye are forgers of lies, ye are all physicians of no value.

5. O that ye would altogether hold your peace! and it should be your wisdom.

Focus Verse of the Week

"If only you would be altogether silent! For you, that would be wisdom." Job 13:5

Classic Commentary

"If only you would be altogether silent . . ."

This is because what they said of Job was not true, nor anything to the purpose, or that tended to the comfort of his afflicted soul, but the reverse. Therefore he could have wished they had never broke silence, but continued as they were the seven days of their visit.

Now, since they had spoken, and had done no good by speaking, but hurt, Job desires for the future they would be silent, and say no more.

"For you, that would be wisdom."

If would be the greatest evidence of it they could give, as they had shown none by speaking; it would be a proof of something in them, should they hold their peace.

Proverbs 17:28

28. Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.
