The opening verses of this article state that the Lord repays those who hate Him to their face. Unlike the coward that shoots a man when his back is turned, the Lord assures the haters that they will recognize the hand that repays them for their hatred of Israel.

Job’s justification of the purity of his integrity was meaningless to the comforters because they felt the proof was in the pudding. They regarded his trauma, bitter experience, unsightliness, and seeming complaining as evidences of his guilt. Concluding that indeed he must have done something wrong to merit such afflictions, they felt that his utterances were added proof of his guilt. In their minds, he deserved his sufferings, and they wanted to say, “Job, wake up to your situation.” How exasperating for Job! He could have done much better without their “comforting” and wished they would leave.
Teheran has decided to teach its Arab neighbors a lesson in geography. From now on the airlines of Gulf countries will have to use the term “Persian Gulf” for flights to the Islamic Republic, or else be banned from Iranian airspace.

The practice known as honor killing is a daily occurrence in Saudi Arabia. The incidents are staged to look like a suicide or an accident, Wajeha Huweidar, a Saudi women’s rights activist told The Media Line. “This case is shocking, because it didn’t occur behind doors.

As with Jesus, there is little information about Moses’ earlier years. We hear nothing about Jesus between his birth and age 12, and then nothing until he was age 30. With Moses we hear only that he married Zipporah, had two sons, and was living in the desert tending flocks. He had been in the Wilderness of Sinai for 40 years at this point in time. Now Moses was 80 years old. God overruled that Moses would take the flocks to Mount Sinai at this time so that the incident of the burning bush could occur, resulting in the Exodus eventually—at God’s due time. Meanwhile, Moses’ 40 years in the desert had familiarized him with the terrain to later lead the Israelites.
