Job 13:5 O that ye would altogether hold your peace! And it should be your wisdom.
Job’s friends are accusing him. They are telling him how he has done wrong and brought this on himself. Job doesn’t agree. He just wishes that his friends would show their wisdom by not talking.
If you keep quiet people might think you are wise. If you open your mouth they will know you are a fool. So many times I am afraid I speak when I should be quiet. I want to be wiser and speak the truth. The only way to do that is to be sure and say what the Bible says. But even that is dangerous. I have to tell the right truth at the right time.
It is easy to take things out of context and make wrong statements. It is better to really think through what we are about do say and do!
