Job 31:35 (KJV) We Have What Job Longed For

Job 31:35 (KJV)
Oh that one would hear me! behold, my desire is, that the Almighty would answer me, and that mine adversary had written a book.
A friend recently pointed this verse out to me and offered some very helpful insights.
Job is here expressing his case. As far as he knew, he had committed none of the heinous sins his friends were just sure he must have done (though they could not name one or prove it if they had). Previous to this verse Job is at a loss. He lists possible sins and declares himself innocent of them all.
Then here he makes his request. Job prays for a thing that believers have enjoyed possessing for the last nineteen hundred years; a completed and perfect book revealing God’s plan for men. Job’s own life event is both contained in that book and answered by the book.
The Bible, God’s answer to the struggle of fallen man, has gone through four thousand years of writing, two thousand years of abuse and refinement and four hundred years of attempted corruption but God has kept His Word perfect, pure and profitable.
All that remains is that we learn it.
