Job 13:15 Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him.
This verse, which is quoted quite frequently by Christians, shows that Job’s character, in spite of all his afflictions, was firming up and solidifying. His character was getting more and more crystallized, even though everything around him was negative. A transformation was taking place in his inner thinking, and he was manifesting a wonderful acquiescence to God’s providences. He was saying in effect, “I do not understand why God is permitting these experiences to come upon me, but He must have a reason.” What an excellent example he was!
