Job’s Redeemer

Job’s Redeemer

We know it is the view of some commentators that where it is written:

“I know that my Redeemer liveth, and that He shall stand at the latter day upon the earth” (Job xix. 25),

“ But as for me I know that my Redeemer liveth, And at last he will stand up upon the earth:” (Job 19:25 ASV)

it should read “my avenger”, from which it would appear that what Job referred to was the justification in the present life which is detailed in Job xlii. 11.

“ Then came there unto him all his brethren, and all his sisters, and all they that had been of his acquaintance before, and did eat bread with him in his house: and they bemoaned him, and comforted him concerning all the evil that Jehovah had brought upon him: every man also gave him a piece of money, and every one a ring of gold.” (Job 42:11 ASV)

But, although the word translated “redeemer”,ga-αl”, is sometimes rendered avenger, such meaning is generally apparent from the context, as in 2 Sam. xiv.11.

“ Then said she, I pray thee, let the king remember Jehovah thy God, that the avenger of blood destroy not any more, lest they destroy my son. And he said, As Jehovah liveth, there shall not one hair of thy son fall to the earth.” (2Sa 14:11 ASV)

Job associates his ga-al with the latter day, and manifestly connects such with the Resurrection (Job xix. 26).

“ And after my skin, even this body, is destroyed, Then without my flesh shall I see God;” (Job 19:26 ASV)

In the following texts the word ga-al is applied to God (Isa. xliii. 14; xlvii. 4; xlix. 26).

“ Thus saith Jehovah, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: For your sake I have sent to Babylon, and I will bring down all of them as fugitives, even the Chaldeans, in the ships of their rejoicing.” (Isa 43:14 ASV)

“ Our Redeemer, Jehovah of hosts is his name, the Holy One of Israel.” (Isa 47:4 ASV)

“ And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I, Jehovah, am thy Saviour, and thy Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.” (Isa 49:26 ASV)
