v1-6: Job was not convinced by his friends that he sinned against God. “…till I die, I will not deny my integrity.I will maintain my righteousness and never let go of it”. Job continued to believe that he did not sin against God to deserve the punishment. Job was right because God declared before satan Job was blameless, upright, fear God and shunned evil.
v7-23: Job then described what would happen to wicked men. He did not directly point out his friends were wicked, but it was obvious that was his point. Job said: “May my enemies be like the wicked, my adversaries like the unjust!” (v7). At this point, his friends have turned into his enemies. Job thought his friends were wicked by because they wrongly accused Job for sins he did not commit.
