New Defender's Study Bible Notes
3:25 greatly feared. Job confesses that, even during his former days of prosperity and esteem, he had realized that things could change. God may bless a righteous man with prosperity, but it is all of grace. No man—not even righteous Job—deserves God’s favor, for “all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). Job realized he was innately a sinner, and offered sacrifices to cover his sins, as God had instructed, but he still realized God had every right to withhold His blessings.
