    SEV Biblia, Chapter 13:5

    Ojalá callarais del todo, porque os fuera en lugar de sabiduría.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Job 13:5

    Verse 5. Hold your peace! and it should be your wisdom. ] In Prov. xvii. 28 we have the following apophtheym: "Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise; and he that shutteth his lips, a man of understanding." There is no reason to say that Solomon quotes from Job: I have already expressed my opinion that the high antiquity attributed to this book is perfectly unfounded, and that there is much more evidence that Solomon was its author, than there is that it was the composition of Moses. But, whenever Job lived, whether before Abraham or after Moses, the book was not written till the time of Solomon, if not later. But as to the saying in question, it is a general apophthegm, and may be found among the wise sayings of all nations. I may observe here, that a silent man is not likely to be a fool; for a fool will be always prating, or, according to another adage, a fool's bolt is soon shot. The Latins have the same proverb: Vir sapit, qui pauca loquitur, "A wise man speaks little."

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-12 - With self-preference,
    Job declared that he needed not to be taught by them. Those who dispute are tempted to magnify themselves, and lowe their brethren, more than is fit. When dismayed or distressed with the fear of wrath, the force of temptation, or the weight of affliction, we should apply to the Physician of our souls, who never rejects any never prescribes amiss, and never leaves any case uncured. To Him we may speak at all times. To broken hearts and wounded consciences, all creatures, without Christ, are physicians of no value. Job evidentl speaks with a very angry spirit against his friends. They had advance some truths which nearly concerned Job, but the heart unhumbled befor God, never meekly receives the reproofs of men.
