Job 24:12 (ESV)

12 From out of the city the dying groan, and the soul of the wounded cries for help; yet God charges no one with wrong.

Everywhere Job looks, he sees wicked men exploiting poor, helpless people. Yet God allows this to continue indefinitely. God does not set times for judgment (Job 24:1).

Job voices the doubts and distresses that many of God’s children experience, even today. However, as we call on God to act against the injustice in this world (Psalm 58:1–11), we should also know that he is a stronghold for the oppressed who has not forsaken those who seek him (Psalm 9:9–10). Job seems to have forgotten this.
