Job Realizes He Needs a Mediator

Question: Is there One strong and wise enough to take up his cause? Job recognizes the need for a mediator between pitiful depraved man and sovereign holy God:

“He is not a man like me that I might answer him, that we might confront each other in court.
If only there were someone to arbitrate between us, to lay his hand upon us both, someone to remove God’s rod from me, so that his terror would frighten me no more.
Then I would speak up without fear of him, but as it now stands with me, I cannot.”

Job 9:32-35

Answer: Hebrews 4:16
