When David turned to God in confession, he described himself as a servant. In each of the above references the term “servant” is from the same Hebrew word “ebed.” As a revered king, no one would have raised any eyebrows if a nobler title was ascribed to David.

Job certainly did not take his responsibilities lightly before God. He always led in ensuring that he and his family were right before God. He was blameless, upright, feared God and turned from evil. One cannot but pay attention to the appellation God used when talking about Job. “And the LORD said to Satan, “Have you considered My Servant Job?” (Job 1:8 and 2:3). The label…
