This chapter is about retribution. The author first considers the matter of blessing on the righteous and curses on the wicked, and whether the Bible supports the idea of reward for the righteous and punishment for the wicked. To arrive at an answer Longman takes a look at Deuteronomy, Job, Proverbs, and Ecclesiastes. He notes the limits of wisdom.
