SEV Biblia, Chapter 11:12 El hombre vano se hará entendido, aunque nazca como el pollino del asno montés.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Job 11:12 Verse 12. For vain man would be wise ] The original is difficult and uncertain, bbly bwbn yaw veish nabub yillabeb, "And shall the hollow man assume courage," or "pride himself?" Or, as Mr. Good rather paraphrases it, Will he then accept the hollow-hearted person? The Chaldee gives two renderings: An eloquent man shall become wiser in his heart, and the colt of the wild ass is born as the son of man. Or, The wise man shall ponder it; and the refractory youth, who at last becomes prudent, shall make a great man. Coverdale. - A vayne body exalteth him self; and the son of man is like a wylde asse's foale. Houbigant translates thus: - A man who hath understanding will become prudent; but he who is as the wild ass hath no heart, i.e., sense. According to this critic, the meaning is this: - A man of sense, should he at any time transgress, will learn wisdom from it; but a man of a brutish mind, uncultivated and unreflecting, will plunge yet deeper into iniquity.
Though man be born like a wild ass's colt ] Is translated by Mr. Good, Or shall the wild ass colt assume the man? This is making a sense, but such as I fear the original will never allow. There is no end to the translations of this verse, and conjectures relative to its meaning. I shall conclude with the Vulgate. - Vir vanus in superbiam erigitur, et tanquam pullum onagri se liberum natum putat, "Vain man is puffed up with pride; and he supposes himself to be born free like the wild ass's colt." Man is full of self-conceit; and imagines himself born to act as he pleases, to roam at large, to be under no control, and to be accountable to none for his actions.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 7-12 - Zophar speaks well concerning God and his greatness and glory concerning man and his vanity and folly. See here what man is; and le him be humbled. God sees this concerning vain man, that he would be wise, would be thought so, though he is born like a wild ass's colt, s unteachable and untameable. Man is a vain creature; empty, so the wor is. Yet he is a proud creature, and self-conceited. He would be wise would be thought so, though he will not submit to the laws of wisdom He would be wise, he reaches after forbidden wisdom, and, like his first parents, aiming to be wise above what is written, loses the tre of life for the tree of knowledge. Is such a creature as this fit to contend with God?
