Job Finds Strength in His Personal Righteousness and Integrity

Job 27:2–6

2 As God liveth, who hath taken away my judgment; and the Almighty, who hath vexed my soul;3 All the while my breath is in me, and the spirit of God is in my nostrils;4 My lips shall not speak wickedness, nor my tongue utter deceit.5 God forbid that I should justify you: till I die I will not remove mine integrity from me.6 My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go: my heart shall not reproach me so long as I live.

President James E. Faust said:

“God help us to be honest and true. May we always be thoroughly dependable, standing firm and upright though others may fail, and be fearless, constant, and just. May we say with the much-tested Job: ‘Till I die I will not remove mine integrity from me’ (Job 27:5).”
