Cross References
Job 1:5
And when the days of feasting were over, Job would send for his children to purify them, rising early in the morning to offer burnt offerings for all of them. For Job thought, "Perhaps my children have sinned and cursed God in their hearts." This was Job's regular practice.

Psalm 81:12

Treasury of Scripture

If your children have sinned against him, and he have cast them away for their transgression;

he have cast.

Job 1:5,18,19
And it was so, when the days of their feasting were gone about, that Job sent and sanctified them, and rose up early in the morning, and offered burnt offerings according to the number of them all: for Job said, It may be that my sons have sinned, and cursed God in their hearts. Thus did Job continually…

Job 5:4
His children are far from safety, and they are crushed in the gate, neither is there any to deliver them.

Job 18:16-19
His roots shall be dried up beneath, and above shall his branch be cut off…

for their transgression.









(4) And he have cast them away.--Literally, then he sent them away. By means of their transgression; it became their destruction.

Verse 4. - If thy children have sinned against him. Bildad assumes this absolutely; Eliphaz had only hinted at it (Job 10:4). Both presume to know what could be known only to the Searcher of hearts. And he have cast them away for their transgression; literally, and he have delivered them into the hand of their transgressions - abandoned them, that is, to the consequences of their wrong-doing. The allusion is, of course, to the fact recorded in Job 1:19.
