“But consider the joy of those corrected by God! Do not despise the discipline of the Almighty when you sin. For though he wounds, he also bandages. He strikes, but his hands also heal.” Job 5: 17-18

These words were spoken to Job by one of his friends, Eliphaz. Eliphaz was attempting to offer an explanation for why horrible things were happening to Job. He suggests that Job must have done something wrong and should throw himself at the mercy of the Almighty. We know, as the reader, that Job is not being punished, he is being tested.
