There are many exegetical nuggets, such as what does Job mean by 'know', or, what does 'redeemer' mean? is the translation "arise" significant? why does job mention "dust" in the text.
the resurrection is the greatest hope the Christian has, which is why the benediction came from 1 Pet. 1:3 - "Blessed be the God & Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to His great mercy He has caused us to be born again UNTO A LIVING HOPE THROUGH THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST FROM THE DEAD."
If you need hope to get thru the day, follow Job's example & turn your eyes upon your living Redeemer who has conquered the grave.
