—After he spent two weeks in the hospital, it was good to see Mark back in the land of the living.

As Job looked for answers to his problems, he talked about how hard it is to gain wisdom, saying that no one on earth (in the land of the living) knows where to find it. God, he declares, is the only one who is truly wise.

Where is the place of understanding?
Mankind does not know its place;
it cannot be found in the land of the living. (Job 28:12, 13)
