I have made a covenant with my eyes. If I have walked with falsehood, or if my foot has hastened to deceit, let me be weighed on honest scales, that God may know my integrity . If my step has turned from the way, or my heart walked after my eyes, or if any spot adheres to my hands, Then let me sow, and another eat. Yes, let my harvest be rooted out.
Job describes the way he conducted himself in his life, (with integrity). He had made a covenant with his eyes. The eyes are sometimes called the window to the soul. Not looking at things that would cause him to sin, kept him in his righteous walk with the Lord. He describes the fact that he has not cheated anyone and asks that his actions toward his fellow man be “weighed” against the standards of righteousness. God knew of his integrity and righteous walk with Him. How many people of today’s world are known by or want to be known by their integrity? There are many things we can be known for but to be known for righteousness and honesty and integrity are by far the most important. People who aren’t may be successful for the moment but don’t have the peace of those who are. And in the long run will end up crashing and burning.
