    Mark 3:16; Job 3:7-8



    Mark 3:16 King James Version (KJV)

    16 And Simon he surnamed Peter;

     

    Mark 3:16 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

     

    16 Simon was one of the twelve, and Jesus named him Peter.

     

    Contemporary English Version (CEV) Copyright © 1995 by American Bible Society

     

     

     

    These are my thoughts.

     

    Peter was a very important part of the forming of the church and growth the Spirit really used him and his became well known two letters were written by him and he helped Mark write his gospel.

     

    Job 3:7-8 King James Version (KJV)

    Lo, let that night be solitary, let no joyful voice come therein.

    Let them curse it that curse the day, who are ready to raise up their mourning.

     

    Job 3:7-8 Good News Translation (GNT)

     

     make it a barren, joyless night.
    Tell the sorcerers to curse that day,
     those who know how to control Leviathan.a]">[a]

     

    Footnotes:

     

    1. Job 3:8 Some take this to be the crocodile, others a legendary monster. Magicians were thought to be able to make him cause eclipses of the sun.

    7 Job is referring to the night he was born often times birth gives happiness even though this is not always the case but for Job it would most likely have been if he had not been born then the night would have not been special which because of his depression he was wanting.

     

     

     

    8 This does not mean Job believed these people had power but may be using this to success what he wanted done he wanted for time to stop prior to his birth so that it would never be born.

     

    Keep our eyes on Jesus.

    Mark 3:15; Job 3:2-6



    Mark 3:15 King James Version (KJV)

    15 And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils:

     

    Mark 3:15 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

     

    15 and to force out demons.

     

    Contemporary English Version (CEV) Copyright © 1995 by American Bible Society

     

    These are my thoughts.

    Thru Jesus we can have a power of evil forces and even demons but, we have to have His Spirit given to us and it to be apart of His will to do so.

     

    Job 3:2-6 King James Version (KJV)

    And Job spake, and said,

    Let the day perish wherein I was born, and the night in which it was said, There is a man child conceived.

    Let that day be darkness; let not God regard it from above, neither let the light shine upon it.

    Let darkness and the shadow of death stain it; let a cloud dwell upon it; let the blackness of the day terrify it.

    As for that night, let darkness seize upon it; let it not be joined unto the days of the year, let it not come into the number of the months.

     

    Job 3:2-6 Good News Translation (GNT)

     

    Job

     

    2-3 O God, put a curse on the day I was born;
     put a curse on the night when I was conceived!
    Turn that day into darkness, God.
    Never again remember that day;
     never again let light shine on it.
    Make it a day of gloom and thick darkness;
     cover it with clouds, and blot out the sun.
    Blot that night out of the year,
     and never let it be counted again;

     

    Good News Translation (GNT) Copyright © 1992 by American Bible Society

     

     

     

    These are my thoughts, please share yours.

     

     

     

    2-3 There could two ways to look at this either Job thought the day he was born was cursed because of what was happening to him or he was asking God to curse the day he was born so that he would not be born to deal with the pain he was in.

     

     

     

    4 Job knew God had control but for some reason was talking to God about him not being born instead of asking for God’s help, often times during stress we may complain to God but forget we should have been looking to Him for help the entire time.

     

     

     

    5 Job knew God’s power was strong the time was nothing compared to the Lord.

     

     

     

    6 Job may very likely wish that the day was born never happened, sometimes grief is so bad that we do not see the good that has happened from us being born, Job could not see the good that had happened from his birth.

     

    Keep our eyes on Jesus.

    Mark 3:14; Job 3:1



    Mark 3:14 King James Version (KJV)

    14 And he ordained twelve, that they should be with him, and that he might send them forth to preach,

     

    Mark 3:14 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

     

    14 Then he chose twelve of them to be his apostles, so that they could be with him. He also wanted to send them out to preach

     

    Contemporary English Version (CEV) Copyright © 1995 by American Bible Society

     

     

     

    These are my thoughts.

     

    He calls us to be His disciples we are to follow His leadership and do what He asks of us.

     

    Job 3:1 King James Version (KJV)

    After this opened Job his mouth, and cursed his day.

     

    Job 3:1 Good News Translation (GNT)

     

    Job's Complaint to God

     

    Finally Job broke the silence and cursed the day on which he had been born.

    These are my thoughts, please share yours.

     

     

     

    Sometimes we have to let things out that is what Job did, Job just wondered why he was born and thought that it would have been better if he was never born and regretted that he was born, he thought all this because of his deep grief. Job was not yet cursing God but questioning what he did by allowing him to be born, sometimes when we go thru something we do not like we often wonder why but under deep stress we may wonder why we were born if we had to go thru this.

     

    Keep our eyes on Jesus.

    Mark 3:13; Job 3:11-13



    Mark 3:13 King James Version (KJV)

    13 And he goeth up into a mountain, and calleth unto him whom he would: and they came unto him.

     

    Mark 3:13 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

     

    Jesus Chooses His Twelve Apostles

     

    13 Jesus decided to ask some of his disciples to go up on a mountain with him, and they went.

     

    Contemporary English Version (CEV) Copyright © 1995 by American Bible Society

     

     

     

    These are my thoughts.

     

    We should go to where ever Jesus asks us to go.

     

    Job 2:11-13 King James Version (KJV)

    11 Now when Job's three friends heard of all this evil that was come upon him, they came every one from his own place; Eliphaz the Temanite, and Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite: for they had made an appointment together to come to mourn with him and to comfort him.

    12 And when they lifted up their eyes afar off, and knew him not, they lifted up their voice, and wept; and they rent every one his mantle, and sprinkled dust upon their heads toward heaven.

    13 So they sat down with him upon the ground seven days and seven nights, and none spake a word unto him: for they saw that his grief was very great.

     

    Job 2:11-13 Good News Translation (GNT)

     

    Job's Friends Come

     

    11 Three of Job's friends were Eliphaz, from the city of Teman, Bildad, from the land of Shuah, and Zophar, from the land of Naamah. When they heard how much Job had been suffering, they decided to go and comfort him. 12 While they were still a long way off they saw Job, but did not recognize him. When they did, they began to weep and wail, tearing their clothes in grief and throwing dust into the air and on their heads. 13 Then they sat there on the ground with him for seven days and nights without saying a word, because they saw how much he was suffering.

    These are my thoughts, please share yours.

     

     

     

    11 Job’s friends were all from different places which may have shown that Job moved from place to place or that his connections went out to others places sometimes it is the friends we do not see all the time that are there for us when it really counts. The second best comfort comes from a friend but the best comfort comes from the Lord.

     

     

     

    12 Job would have looked very different because of his extreme grief and pain. They cared so much that they shared in his pain. Today how often do we care for someone so much that we actually share in their pain?

     

     

     

    13 Sometimes the best thing a friend can do for us is be there, there is sometimes where words are not needed, this time no words could have been said to help him feel better.

     

    Keep our eyes on Jesus.
