The Wicked Are Unpunished for a Season

Today I read Job 24.  I often wonder when I read these chapters, especially Job, if the people of the day actually talked like that.  They have already made their point and now are just belaboring it.  This chapter talks all about how the wicked go unpunished for a little while before they are brought low, something that has already been said more than once and already.  Job's friends remind me of people who really enjoy hearing themselves talk and so go on and on when they have already made their point.  In that spirit, to keep myself out of that category, I will end here, since we too have already made that point more than once.  Until tomorrow.
