21 Without this caution, the “regular verbs” of Proverbs, like the teachings of Job's
friends, can become “proverbs of ashes” (Job 13:12; see pp. 71–73, “Further
Reflections: Preaching on Proverbs 10–15 without Sounding Like Job's Friends”).
The subjunctive mood of Proverbs' “regular verbs” becomes clear when they are
juxtaposed with the harsh saying in 13:23: “The field of the poor may yield much
food, but it is swept away through injustice.” Clearly, it is not always true that hard

Transition Job: Your Proverbs of Ashes As Job's friends grow more bold in their
defense of traditional wisdom and in their accusations against Job, Job himself
grows more frustrated with their trite answers. “Who does not know such things as
these?” he demands (12:3). Moreover, the friends' answers are wrong. The
wicked do prosper (12:5, 6), and God does not always act benevolently (12:17–
25). The friends' “platitudes are proverbs of ashes” (13:12) that cannot explain
these facts.

But Job could not accept these words. He called them 'proverbs of ashes' and '
defences of clay'. He had not been a bad man – why therefore had bad things
occurred to him? It is one of the most acute questions asked of God in all the
books of the Old Testament. And from a whirlwind in the desert, a furious God
answered Job as follows: Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without
knowledge? Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and
answer thou me.

"Your maxims are proverbs of ashes; your defenses are defenses of clay" (Job 13
:12 NW). What the three friends thought were profound statements of truth were
only warmed-over ashes from ancient fires, clay pots that would fall apart. A good
counselor needs much more than a good memory. He or she also needs wisdom
to know how to apply the truth to the needs of people today. Declaration (vv. 13-
17). This is one of the greatest declarations of faith found anywhere in Scripture, ...

Like unto ashes — Are maxims of ashes. In the East, ashes are regarded as of no
value, fit only to be trodden under foot, (Mai. iv, 3,) hence an image of
worthlessness, Gon. xviii, 27. Bodies — Strongholds. The original is 3J, gab, a
back, the boss of a shield, thence a bulwark, etc. " Bulwarks of clay" were easily
demolished. In those days the tower of stone was the symbol of strength. The "old
saws" of the friends were "proverbs of ashes," their glittering bulwarks, " bulwarks
of mud;" a ...

... not His majesty make you afraid, and should not your awe for Him restrain you
? 12 Your memorable sayings are proverbs of ashes [valueless]; your defenses
are defenses of clay [and will crumble]. 13 Hold your peace! Let me alone, so I
may speak; and let come on me what may. 14Why should I take my flesh in my
teeth and put my life in my hands [incurring the danger of God's wrath]? 15 [I do it.

Will you speak deceitfully for him? 8Will you show him partiality? Will you argue
the case for God? 9Would it turn out well if he examined you? Could you deceive
him as you might deceive a mortal? 10He would surely call you to account if you
secretly showed partiality. 11Would not his splendor terrify you? Would not the
dread of him fall on you? 12Your maxims are proverbs of ashes; your defenses
are defenses of clay. 13“Keep silent and let me speak; then let come to me what
