Fact Satan sore contested,
Inferring God was to be blamedâ€”
Had hedged him all about he claimedâ€”
Heâ€™d fail if he were tested.
And so Jobâ€™s testing time commenced
As Satan worked afflictions;
Death and destruction all dispensed,
Even nature worked againstâ€”
Job stuck to his convictions.
Satan altering his course
New strategy invented,
Used Jobâ€™s friends to reinforce
Hidden sin the certain source
Of why he was tormented.
But Job maintained his innocence
When faced with accusation;
Through opposition most intense
Integrity was his defence
Despite his near frustration.
Elihu then announced his viewâ€”
The most opinionated,
Yet advocated nothing new
Accusing Job unfairly tooâ€”
A false flag orchestrated.
Why is suffering manâ€™s plight?
Why do troubles touch unjustly?
Jobâ€™s advisors shed no light
Theyâ€™re short on wisdom and insight,
But argue most robustly.
God speaking from the whirlwindâ€™s midst
Some eighty questions posing
Concerning how all things exist
Without the need of manâ€™s assistâ€”
Truths known by Godâ€™s disclosing.
So many questions men propose
With blind discrimination,
They only hear as they suppose
And never seek the One Who knowsâ€”
His perfect explanation.
