Job provided for the land (Job 31:38-31:40)

“‘If my land has cried out against me,

If its furrows have wept together,

If I have eaten its yield without payment,

If I have caused the death of its owners,

Let thorns grow instead of wheat.

Let foul weeds grow instead of barley.’

The words of Job are ended.”

It seems that we have come to the end of the words of Job. In fact, there will be other words of Job. However, this passage seems to indicate that Job is done talking. He said that he had not mistreated the land. He had paid all his fees. He had not caused any deaths. If he had mistreated the land, he wanted thorns and weeds to grow instead of wheat and barley.
