Job 38

The Lord Speaks

Then the Lord spoke to Job out of the storm. He said:

“Who is this that obscures my plans
with words without knowledge?
Brace yourself like a man;
I will question you,
and you shall answer me."

Exodus 20:5 - You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me,

Yeah, about that self-contradiction.
Well, no, love is not jealous or boastful.

Jealousy is jealous and boastful.

You can be loving and jealous at the same time.

I'm kind of just messing with you. It's also kinda true.

So you don't go with:

Perhaps this is allegorical then?

You should talk to The Big Dog about this. He has the good oil on what is literal and what is allegorical in the Bible.

Oh, that's easy. Don't believe in Sky-Daddies? You're a communist who is one step away from being the next Stalin!
