The ironic response of Job (Job 26:1-26:4)

“Then Job answered.

How you have helped one who has no power!

How you have saved the arm that has no strength!

How you have counseled one who has no wisdom!

How you have given much good advice!

With whose help have you uttered words?

Whose spirit has come forth from you?’”

Job was upset again. He asked Bildad where he got his power and strength. How could he counsel someone who has no wisdom? How can you save a useless arm? How could he have good advice? Who helped him come up with his words? Where did his spirit come from? Job is now sarcastic with him.
