Introduction:

 A good number of searches have been made on Job 31 and this message is particularly a container of this Bible chapter.

 Welcome to Josephedembassey.com as I share with you a Bible chapter which a number of persons have been searching for. 

 Specifically from the book of Job 31 verse 1 down to verses 40, there's a lot to learn from here.


Job 31: Commentary on Job's Personality

 Perhaps you're wondering why I have to write about this "Job of a man."

 If you've encountered scriptures for yourself or have been in a Bible study or two, you should, at one point or the other, hear the name Job being referenced as a good Bible character.

 In the first chapter of the book of Job, it was revealed that Job was a person from Uz with an upright personality.

 He was also credited as a God fearing man who eschewed evil.

 He was also a wealthy man with a wife, children and cattles, and a generous man at such.

 The story of Job always presents people the opportunity to ask questions and learn moral lessons pertaining to the issues of life.

 I am sure you will learn something beneficiary while you give this chapter a careful, reasonable, and applicable read.
