“Pada beshalom nafshi mikrav li. ki bravim haiu imodi.”
He redeemed my soul through peace from the battles against me because of the help of the many who were with me.
— From a psalm by King David.
Job and his friends are debating. God is unjust. I am just. The world is alchemical insanity. It wages war.
I have been cursed. Tara, who runs a government-owned electronics shop in Shimla, repeatedly points above her head and says: “The world is not good. He is making us dance. We are not doing it ourselves. Whatever He is doing we do not understand.” In my opinion God only punishes the righteous.
One of Job’s friends says, “He who tries to quarrel with God murders himself!” We have to respect God’s decisions, because we have no other choice. Even if we respect only those of God’s decisions which are very unfair. If we quarrel with God when we are well, surely we will suffer. If we quarrel with God when things are horrible, we will die. Once we submit to His will, we gain peace.
Job sees the same thing everyone who is good remarks — that the righteous perish and the evil keep worldly gain. He is innocent. And the war-waging universe protects him by sending three beloved men. From a worldly gain perspective God sometimes really takes from the righteous — I have been surely punished for being honest and pure in my intent. No good deed goes unpunished. None of mine did. Whatever He’s doing I have not understood. My life will make sense 0nly if I have Yeshua’s trust.
Pada beshalom — He redeems by peace — even though He rewards the ill-intended with physical pleasures. Pada beshalom. Redemption is through peace. Peace is the path.
