SEV Biblia, Chapter 19:15 Los moradores de mi casa y mis criadas me tuvieron por extraño; forastero fui yo en sus ojos.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Job 19:15 Verse 15. They that dwell in mine house - In this and the following verses the disregard and contempt usually shown to men who have fallen from affluence and authority into poverty and dependence, are very forcibly described: formerly reverenced by all, now esteemed by none.
Pity to those who have fallen into adversity is rarely shown; the rich have many friends, and to him who appears to be gaining worldly substance much court is paid; for many worship the rising sun, who think little of that which is gone down. Some are even reproached with that eminence which they have lost, though not culpable for the loss. A bishop, perhaps Bale, of Ossory, being obliged to leave his country and fly for his life, in the days of bloody Queen Mary, and who never regained his bishopric, was met one morning by one like those whom Job describes, who, intending to be witty at the expense of the venerable prelate, accosted him thus: "Good morrow, BISHOP quondam." To which the bishop smartly replied, "Adieu, KNAVE semper."
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 8-22 - How doleful are Job's complaints! What is the fire of hell but the wrath of God! Seared consciences will feel it hereafter, but do no fear it now: enlightened consciences fear it now, but shall not feel it hereafter. It is a very common mistake to think that those whom God afflicts he treats as his enemies. Every creature is that to us whic God makes it to be; yet this does not excuse Job's relations an friends. How uncertain is the friendship of men! but if God be ou Friend, he will not fail us in time of need. What little reason we have to indulge the body, which, after all our care, is consumed by disease it has in itself. Job recommends himself to the compassion of his friends, and justly blames their harshness. It is very distressing to one who loves God, to be bereaved at once of outward comfort and of inward consolation; yet if this, and more, come upon a believer, it does not weaken the proof of his being a child of God and heir of glory.
