Job responds (Job 40:3-40:5)

“Then Job answered Yahweh.


I am of small account.

What shall I answer you?

I lay my hand on my mouth.

I have spoken once.

I will not answer.

I have spoken twice.

But I will proceed no further.’”

Job responded to Yahweh. He claimed that he was not worth much. How could he answer? He has already spoken twice. He is not going to speak again. He was going to put his hand to his mouth and remain speechless.   This was after all his complaints about God not listening to him.
