Job’s 1st Response to Zophar
Job 12:2-3, 9-10, 12-13, 13:1-2 | Evidence of a Unified Church: Job 2:10, 11-13, 4:3-7, 5:1, 8, 27, 6:10, 25, 8:8-10, 9:2, 12:2-3, 9-10, 12-13, 13:1-2, 15:7-10, 17-19, 16:2, 4, 8, 17:2, 4, 8-10, 18:3-4, 20-21, 19:3-5, 7, 20:2-4, 21:29-31, 22:15-17, 24:1, 27:12 (Laws of Perpetuity: Deut. 32:7-8, 4:32, Ps. 44:1, 77:5-12, 78:1-8, Ps. 119:52, Isa. 46:9, 63:11, Joel 1:2-3); That Ye May Know: Job 4:7-8 (I have seen), 5:3-5 (I have seen), 5:24-25 (thou shalt know), 11:5-6 (He would shew thee…know therefore), 12:3 (“…yea, who knoweth not such things as these?”), 18:20 (astonied at his day), 19:25, 29, 21:19, 22:19 (see it) 27:12 (seen it), 34:26-27 (in the open sight), 36:9 (he sheweth them), 36:24-25 (behold…see it…behold)
Job is in total agreement with Zophar. The non-arbitrary judgments of God in the Church were so active and immediately present to fulfill the moral protocol of the Kingdom in Genesis 1-11, as described by Eliphaz (Job 4-5), Bildad (Job 8), and Zophar (Job 11), it is taken for granted that every saint of the Church knows these things already (Rev. 2:23). It’s undeniable. The evidence of this is all around them: in “the earth”, “air”, and “sea” (Job 12:7-8)! Therefore, Job’s rhetorical question serves as a rebuke to his friends. Not only is Job without contest at hearing their doctrine, but he also boldly declares: “…yea, who knoweth not such things as these?” (Job 12:3)! Then, again, Job says, “Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this?” (Job 12:9).
Apparently, God made the Churches know these things like the common sense proverbial wisdom of the Kingdom in Solomon’s day. As divinely intended (Deut. 4:32, 32:7-8, Ps. 44:1, 77:5-12, 78:1-8), this “wisdom”, “understanding”, and “counsel” flowed down from the aged men and “the ancient” ones as they instructed the youngers of newborn generations (Job 12:12-13). However, through the process of time Job and his friends personally witnessed the truth of what they were told (Job 13:1-2). They found it to be true by personal experience. The God of their fathers and forefathers was still at work in their own lifetime! What was told to them in word was eventually “seen” by them in real life. Even so, Job says,
“Lo, mine eye hath seen all this, mine ear hath heard and understood it. What ye know, the same do I know also: I am not inferior unto you.” – Job 13:1-2
Job goes on to reinforce this point by speaking of the inescapable divine judgment in two great unprecedented events: Noah’s flood (Job 12:7-15) & the Confusion of Tongues at Babel (Job 12:16-13:2).
Job 12:4 | Laughing to Scorn: Job 5:22, 12:4, 22:19, 2 Kings 19:21, 2 Chron. 30:10, Ps. 22:7, Neh. 2:19, Isa. 37:22, Ezek. 23:32, Matt. 9:24, Mk. 5:40, Lk. 8:53
Job 12:5 | The Wicked At Ease: Ps. 123:4, Amos 6:1, Zech. 1:15, Prov. 14:2
Job 12:6 | Declension of the Church: Job 9:24; The Prosperity of the Wicked because of a Delayed Sudden Destruction: Job 5:3, 9:24, 20:5, 21:5-16, 22:10, Ps. 73:11-12, 17:14, 37:35, Jer. 5:27, Mal. 3:14-15
Job 12:4-6 | Job’s Confusion: Job 9:1-10:22, 12:4-6
Directly following the rhetorical question delivered in Job 12:3, Job continues to honestly react to what he feels to be an injustice in his situation. He certainly doesn’t know how to reconcile his situation to the doctrine of the Church. Job feels that his situation is unprecedented, or non-biblical, and if he were to incorporate his situation into the grand scheme of doctrine while holding to his integrity, it would call into question the universally recognized doctrines pertaining to the non-arbitrary judgments of God that ruled the Early Church. Therefore, Job is afraid to speak his mind about the matter.
Remember, he directly speaks of this fear in Job 9:20-24. However, then, in Job 12:4-5, Job speaks of his friends in the same way that he spoke about the Almighty in Job 9:22-23. Instead of accusing God, Job accuses his friends of injustice because he feels “mocked”, “despised”, and scorned by them in a moment of weakness when he needed them the most, when he is vulnerable as a man “ready to slip with his feet” (Job 12:4-5). Job makes himself out to be “the just upright man” in the illustration because he feels obliged in conscience to hold to his integrity against the assumptions made by his friends. However, unbeknownst to Job, the LORD will eventually speak to defend him on this point (Job 42:7-8).
Nevertheless, in the fallout of the controversy, Job errs grievously by making his own assumptions about God, hypocritically, just like his friends made assumptions about himself. Namely, in believing that God is committing error just like his friends. For Job to accuse his friends of injustice in Job 12:4-5 is one thing, but to accuse God of injustice in Job 9:22-23 is another thing altogether. Job should have never allowed his conscience to venture into that territory. However, in Job’s mind, his friends are judging his situation amiss as a result of God “covering the faces” of “the judges” in a declension of the Church, which would mean that the LORD is giving “the earth” over “into the hand of the wicked” (Job 9:24). Job is making a similar point in Job 12:6, as he did in Job 9:24, hoping to undermine the argument of his friends – a point that he continues to make more apparently throughout the ongoing discourse from hereon out.
It goes without saying that Job’s argument is flawed (Job 32:2, 40:8). However, we need to be careful to precisely identify what is wrong without condemning what is right (Job 42:8). Job, being accused of certain wickedness for what appeared to be a swift visitation of divine justice upon him, points out that a sudden outbreak of divine judgment (in his case) or the lack thereof (in the case of the prosperity of the wicked) doesn’t always mean immorality (in his case) or morality (in the case of the prosperity of the wicked). With the former being totally unheard of (Job 5:1) and the latter generally undeniable (Job 24:1-17), this makes for a sharp disagreement when Job and his friends convened together in discourse on the subject.
When Job attempts to incorporate his experience into the doctrines of the Church, something even he is hesitant to do (an experience undermines the non-arbitrary judgment of God in the Church; Job 9:20-24), Job’s friends are even more troubled for him, and rightly so, because in doing this Job is condemning God and overthrowing divine justice, and indirectly taking up the cause of the wicked do the same (Job 33:12-13, 34:4-12, 34-37, 35:1-4). What Job should have acknowledged is that he is an anomaly.
However, in respect to Job’s friends, if only they knew about the unique heavenly situation that brought about Job’s calamity, how the Almighty accepted Satan’s challenge and made Job the focal point of an unprecedented trial between God and angels, they would have shown much more compassion upon Job as he verbalizes the unique temptations associated with his situation. For, contrary to the opinion of Job’s friends, this calamity came about because of Job’s unrivaled righteousness above all other men on the face of the earth.
Furthermore, Job’s agreement with the moral protocol of divine judgment (Job 12:1-2, 9-10, 12-13, 13:1-2) doesn’t disagree with the argument being made in Job 12:4-6. This would just mean that there is a declension in the Church (Job 9:24) and that the divine judgment is being delayed… but not nullified. If indeed there is a widespread declension in the Church, or a Great Falling Away, as Job indicates in Job 9:24, then the wicked will continue to get stronger while the righteous will continue to get weaker corporately without a divine intervention, which is what Job alludes to in Job 12:6. This would mean that light is decreasing and darkness is increasing in the earth, or that the deceiver and the deceived are becoming stronger while those who believe in the truth are becoming weaker and more marginalized.
This continues as long as “the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full” (Gen. 15:16), so to speak; and for iniquity to come in and grow, and become full, the Almighty must first depart so as to get out of the way (1 Sam. 4:21-22, Jer. 7:14-15, 9:1-3, Ezek. 10:18-22, 11:22-25, 24:21; 2 Thess. 2:7). This is a unique time when the Almighty is not present to do judgment; nevertheless, He is preparing for a greater judgment in the future (Noah’s flood & the Confusion of Tongues at Babel), but until then “they that do know Him” will “not see His days” as in former times (Job 24:1). At last, divine judgment will intervene in an End of the World type scenario that will revive the glory of the Church and re-establish the non-arbitrary judgment ordained by God to flourish in the Kingdom. This is why Job went on to speak about the End of the World through Noah’s flood (Job 12:14-15) and the scattering of the nations at Babel (Job 12:16-25).
Job 12:7-15 | Noah’s Flood: Job 5:9-11, 8:11-22, 9:4-14, 11:7-11, 12:7-15, 14:10-12, 18-22
The watery deluge of Noah’s flood was so cataclysmic, it permanently altered the sea, land, and sky of the world (2 Pet. 3:5-6). This was evident to “the ancient” men of Job’s lifetime, men like Noah and Shem, who for “length of days” personally witnessed the flood and beheld the difference between the Old and New World (Job 12:12). They saw firsthand the effect it had upon “the earth”, “the sea”, and “the air”. As adamic overseers of everything that breathed, they were intimately acquainted with how the “beasts”, “fowls”, and “fishes” were radically altered in diversity and size from what they were in the former times (Gen. 2:19-20, 6:17-22).
Chiefly, the “wisdom” and “understanding” of these aged men came by virtue of seeing the destructive and deadly power of the Almighty (Job 12:14) in how He sent “out” the waters of the flood so that “they [did] overturn the earth”, and then how God restrained “the waters” and caused them to “dry up” (Job 12:15). Herein, the earth was effectively wiped clean like a man wipes a dish (2 Kings 21:13).
Job 12:7-8 | “…ask now the beasts…and the fowls…speak to the earth…and the fishes” – Job 28:14, 22, Isa. 14:9-11

Job 12:15 | Overturning Mountains: Job 9:5, 28:9, 34:25 (Ezek. 21:27)
Job 12:16-13:2 | The Confusion of Tongues at Babel: Job 12:16-13:2, 30:1-18 (Gen. 11:1-9)
The confusion of tongues at the tower of Babel was no small act of divine judgment. For, “the whole earth was of one language” (Gen. 11:1), and herein “the children of men” were united in their cause of rebellion under Nimrod’s leadership (Gen. 10:8-9, 11:5). Nimrod was their King. It was explicitly stated that “the beginning of [Nimrod’s] Kingdom was Babel” (Gen. 10:10). For, Nimrod gave the cursed Hamites and their associates hope to survive the onslaught of divine judgment enforced among them in accordance with the Noahic Covenant. Amazingly, the beasts, fowls, and fishes were not afraid of them, and instead of these creatures being delivered into their hands, they were often delivered as prey into the mouths of fierce predators from each class of creature (Gen. 9:1-2).
In this arena of distress among sinners Nimrod found purpose as a survivor. He became famous as an antichrist figure within the confines of the Noahic Covenant. As a grandson of Ham, and a son of Cush, Nimrod’s renown among the people was so widely regarded, it was depicted in the ancient proverb, “Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD.” (Gen. 10:9). It was said that he was “before the LORD” (Gen. 10:9), not because he was with the LORD, but because he was in direct opposition to the LORD, provocatively, as it was said of the men of Sodom: “But the men of Sodom were wicked sinners before the LORD exceedingly.” (Gen. 13:13). Nimrod was called, “the mighty hunter” (Gen. 10:9), not because he was skillful to hunt, merely, in some general sense, but because he was able to hunt and subdue very dangerous beasts who wouldn’t hesitate to fearlessly attack the cursed Hamites.
Remember, it was for want of the Noahic blessing that the Hamites found it very difficult to survive in the face of fearless and violent beasts (Gen. 9:1-2). Often, while they were out hunting for food, they would find themselves being hunted! However, Nimrod was able to overcome the curse of the Noahic Covenant with much less hardship than others, thus it was said of him that he was a “mighty hunter”. Considering the circumstances, it’s easy to imagine why the frightened Hamites found refuge in Nimrod’s skirt, seeing that they were so often harassed, persecuted, and killed by violent creatures.
Contrastingly, the blessed saints of the Noahic Covenant found the promises of God to be true in real time (Gen. 9:1-2). Marvelously, they were at peace with the violent beasts and dinosaurs of the field, and they abode unafraid amidst the carnage of rebels across the countryside (Job 5:22-23). Therefore, on the contrary, because Nimrod survived and thrived by whit and skill, and brute strength, the Hamites took him as their King. Then, to provide a false sense of security and peace to the cursed Hamites, Nimrod directed the people to build a towering city of great stature.
They hoped this would be a means of protection from violent beasts and dinosaurs like the Unicorn, Behemoth, and the Leviathan, among others, all of whom were appointed by God to humble the sons of pride because they lived in rebellion to the Noahic Covenant (Gen. 9:1-2, Job 5:22-23, 12:7-10, 41:34). Also, in the event of another flood, the godless rebels might be imagining a building that would serve as a refuge in the skies (Gen. 11:3-4, 6). Of course, the Almighty wasn’t going to allow them to succeed in this effort. The amassed population of sinners was suddenly struck with confusion. Their tongues were confounded (Gen. 11:7)! It was written, “Therefore is the name of it called Babel…” (Gen. 11:9).
Can you imagine it? When the cursed Hamites resorted unto their fellows for another day’s work at the tower, each one encountered divided parts of the mass multitude frantically babbling! Up to this point in time in human history, distinct and indiscernible languages would have been inconceivable. It’s no wonder they simply called it “Babel” (Gen. 11:9)! Remarkably, God didn’t call it Babel. They did! They probably didn’t even realize that their estranged companions were fluently speaking in coherent alien languages, again, because distinct languages didn’t even exist at the time (Gen. 11:1). The sound of a totally different language had never been heard before! “Therefore is the name of it called Babel…” (Gen. 11:9).
God turned the lights out at the land of Shinar (Job 12:25). The frightened survivors of this staggering event groped for sanity as the noise of babel filled the countryside in a steady roar (Job 12:25). Of course, they were unable to peaceably work out their differences. Rather, they panicked! They became entrenched in amazement against one another, and all this led to the sudden outbreak of war! Speaking of this, it was written, “so the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth…” (Gen. 11:8). In retrospect, the psalmist said, “Then were they in great fear: for God is in the generation of the righteous.” (Ps. 14:2, 5, 53:2, 5; Gen. 11:5)!
One can only imagine what it would have been like for a faithful Shemite to venture into the land of Shinar in the aftermath of the war, only to discover the building of this mighty City abandoned by the people and the landscape covered with scattered bones as far as the eye could see (Ps. 53:5). The same phenomena can be observed when God smote the Midianites, Philistines, Ammonites, Moabites, and Edomites with confusion in Judges 7:22, 1 Samuel 14:16, 20, & 2 Chronicles 20:21-23. When the people were divinely smitten with confusion, the swords of the people were immediately turned against one another, and only then were they forced to scatter in all directions (Ps. 55:9).
However, obviously, the Genesis 11 scenario was on a much larger scale. According to Job, who sheds light on the situation in Job 12:16-25, a worldwide scattering from Shinar (Gen. 11:2) required much more divine “strength and wisdom” (Job 12:16). For, the divine purposes involved in this one decisive act were manifold (Job 12:24-25)! Divine foresight was employed in the division of tongues so that when the war finally ignited between the people, the nations were made to scatter to their divinely allotted locations across the face of the whole earth (Deut. 32:8). Speaking of this, it was written,
“He increaseth the nations, and destroyeth them: he enlargeth the nations, and straiteneth them again.” – Job 12:23
Therefore, in humiliating the “deceiver” (Job 12:16), Nimrod the King, or in “[taking] away the heart of the chief of the people of the earth” (Job 12:24), the Almighty showed everyone how “He looseth the bond of Kings” (Job 12:18); and, in thwarting the courses of those who were “deceived” (Job 12:16), the Almighty acted to forge nations and appoint their new Kings as one that “girdeth their loins with a girdle” (Job 12:18). Eventually, the Shemites would have seen the nations “wander in a wilderness” in search for new territory to occupy (Job 12:24), as the capital cities of Salem and Hebron were not far from the land of Shinar. What’s even more impressive is that Job was old enough to see it all (Job 13:1-2)!
“Lo, mine eye hath seen all this, mine ear hath heard and understood it. What ye know, the same do I know also: I am not inferior unto you.” - Job 13:1-2
He could have witnessed the humiliation of Nimrod and the toppling of his empire, as the Almighty led “princes away spoiled” and overthrew “the mighty” (Job 12:19) by smiting their “speech” and confounding their “understanding” in an ultimate judgment that forever and irreparably fragmented mankind (Job 12:20). In the fallout of this judgment, lo and behold: the starving wanderers ate “roots” to survive (Job 12:24-25, 30:4)! The malnourished people could be seen moaning and groaning for hunger among the bushes of the wilderness (Job 30:7)! Of course, “ancient” men like Noah and Shem (much older than Job’s father – Job 15:10), were witnesses of both Noah’s flood and the confusion of tongues at Babel (Job 12:12-13). Nevertheless, much younger men, like Job (who didn’t live out half the days of the ancients), would have been alive to see the scattering of the nations at Babel.
If Babel happened in the 1st year of Peleg’s life, and Job personally saw it (Job 13:1), then Job could have been born at ≈85-90 A.F., which would allow him to be a teenager at the time of Babel. This would also allow for Job to be ≈100 years old in the days of Serug (born 163 A.F.) when the calamity of the book of Job befell him, at least a few decades after Reu’s birth (131 A.F.). For, we know that Job lived to at least ≈200 years old, considering the fact that he was a very old man at the writing of Job, according to Elihu (Job 32:6-7), and he lived still another 140 years after the calamity (Job 42:16).

If this is what Job says about the fear of the Almighty while being backslidden (Job 13:21), namely because he is hereby withheld from even greater sins like suicide or violence to himself or his friends, or from pursuing a totally godless path of solace like drunkenness and debauchery, one can only imagine what Job would have said about the fear of the LORD when he is right with God. That being said, in actuality, we don’t have to imagine anything: Job and his friends speak at length about the confidence that is acquired by those who truly fear the Almighty (Prov. 14:26) all throughout the book of Job (Job 6:14, 13:11, 15:4, 18:11, 14, 20-21, 21:5-6).
Therefore, all things considered, modern readers must not allow Job’s backslidden condition to confound the doctrine of the fear of the Almighty as it is in truth. For, when Job wished to be relieved from a restraining sense of fear, it was a bitter and demonic lamentation he made while vainly coveting after death. This does not accurately represent the doctrine of the fear of the Almighty. For, those happy souls who truly experience it would never wish to be freed from it (Prov. 28:14)! Rather, they go about the countryside proclaiming the healing, empowerment, and life that certainly comes from it (Prov. 14:27)! Even as the psalmist openly declared, “Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD, that delighted greatly in his commandments.” (Ps. 112:1).
