The difficult part of this is that it all sounds so true. I would wonder though theses things being the case, how many of us ever would attain these high marks. The men declaring these things, had they? Job in all of his righteousness, had he? Do we? If not then surely we all should be judged in the same fashion as Job. Problem with the line of thought is that Job isn't being judged, he is being tested. Yes and no we really do these thing and we really don't; we all fall short. The sum of each of our righteousness is but filthy rags. For me to say that you are being tested and that I am not shows that I am more righteous than you is a complete falsehood.
