Although affliction cometh not forth of the dust, neither doth trouble spring out of the ground; — Job 5:6

Yet man is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward. — Job 5:7

I would speak unto God, and unto God would I commit my cause: — Job 5:8

Which doeth great things and unsearchable; marvellous things without number: — Job 5:9

  1. Good mornin to you miss Margaret.

    I have never understood the words: “as the sparks fly upward”

    I don’t look at commentaries very often, and I’m not looking at them for this answer.

    Do you have any insight about the meaning?

    I know it’s silly, but I when I read those words, I think of that scene in the 1983 movie “the right stuff” where the aborigine’s campfire sparks floated up to John Glenn’s space capsule.

    1. Well Brother, I know that there is probably some huge profound meaning behind “as the sparks fly upward” :) and plenty of people who could tell you. You know I am more simple in what I read, and believe it is just what it says. That just like sparks from fires(or anything really) will always fly upward….man is always born into trouble. Of course, as I said I am sure there are others that might have more insight than me. I tend to take it at face value unless or until the LORD reveals to me otherwise :)

      Do you know I never knew what that was outside his capsule until you just said that :) I havent watched that movie in I dont know how long but never occurred to be that is what it was. :) Now it makes perfect sense.

    1. I think God signed Job up :) The devil was looking for something/someone, and God asked had He considered His servant Job. Then gave the devil permission to do what he would to Job short of hurting his person. When Job still wouldn’t curse God, God gave the devil permission to hurt his person. I try to be like Job but fall way short all the time. My lesson from Job is that God never promised us paradise here on earth. That we will be attacked, persecuted even if we do everything the right way but if we still praise Him that He will give us more than we ever imagined. :) BUT I am not the be all end all of all things of the Bible so I welcome any other thoughts, and insight you have because I value your wisdom, and opinion. :)
