On the end of Job

From Lisa Velthouse's spiritual memoir Craving Grace:
"Although for thirty-seven chapters Job's innocence and deservedness have been his party line, he doesn't tout either one now. Both seem to have become irrelevant to the discussion. Job plays no more bargaining chips, and he no longer implies that life is unfair. God's greatness has silenced and humbled him, and what he has to say is brief: 'Things I knew nothing about ... things far too wonderful for me ... but now I have seen.'"
