Job 15-19

16:21-22 Need for a mediator -

    21      Oh, that one might plead for a man with God,
    As a man pleads for his neighbor!
    22      For when a few years are finished,
    I shall go the way of no return.

In this section, we see two interesting points - 1.  The desperate need for a mediator, someone to go between God and man.  If only Job could have seen the Mediator yet to come!  2.  A really bleak view of the afterlife.

The New King James Version. (1982). (Job 16:21–22). Nashville: Thomas Nelson.

Just a few chapters later, in 19:25-27, we see a much more optimistic view of what comes after death.
