13 Oh, that You would hide me in the grave, That You would conceal me until Your wrath is past, That You would appoint me a set time, and remember me! 14 If a man dies, shall he live again? All the days of my hard service I will wait, Till my change comes. 15 You shall call, and I will answer You; You shall desire the work of Your hands.
Job, who died long ago, is 'sleeping' in his grave waiting to receive his change into his immortal resurrected spiritual body. For Job, and all true believers, this change will occur at the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.
The risen Christ is the First of the Firstfruits of all the billions of human beings who have ever lived who will be resurrected 'from their sleep'. Resurrection from the dead is described as the victory over death, which Christ has earned and won for Adam and Eve and all of their descendants.
