James was right though. Job feared God and did endure till the end. And God in His love for Job, reinstated him and blessed him. But look at the crap that Job spewed. Blaming God, speaking death and destruction, blah blah yadda yadda....Just like us modern people. Job was no different. Why do you deify him? He was upright and uptight. Not perfect as in without blemish.
But it is God who tells us His estimate of Job, and that's the bottom line. We should believe God.
Though these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they should deliver but their own souls by their righteousness, saith the Lord GOD. (Ezek 14:14)
Though Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, as I live, saith the Lord GOD, they shall deliver neither son nor daughter; they shall but deliver their own souls by their righteousness. (Ezek 14:20)
There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil. (Job 1:1).
