SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:13 Así se sentaron con él en tierra por siete días y siete noches, y ninguno le hablaba palabra, porque veían que el dolor era muy grande.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Job 2:13 Verse 13. They sat down with him upon the ground seven days ] They were astonished at the unprecedented change which had taken place in the circumstances of this most eminent man; they could not reconcile his present situation with any thing they had met with in the history of Divine providence. The seven days mentioned here were the period appointed for mourning. The Israelites mourned for Jacob seven days, Gen. l. 10. And the men of Jabesh mourned so long for the death of Saul, 1 Samuel xxxi. 13; 1 Chron. x. 12. And Ezekiel sat on the ground with the captives at Chebar, and mourned with and for them seven days. Ezek. iii. 15. The wise son of Sirach says, "Seven days do men mourn for him that is dead;" Ecclus. xxii. 12. So calamitous was the state of Job, that they considered him as a dead man: and went through the prescribed period of mourning for him.
They saw that his grief was very great. ] This is the reason why they did not speak to him: they believed him to be suffering for heavy crimes, and, seeing him suffer so much, they were not willing to add to his distresses by invectives or reproach. Job himself first broke silence.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 11-13 - The friends of Job seem noted for their rank, as well as for wisdom an piety. Much of the comfort of this life lies in friendship with the prudent and virtuous. Coming to mourn with him, they vented grief whic they really felt. Coming to comfort him, they sat down with him. I would appear that they suspected his unexampled troubles were judgment for some crimes, which he had vailed under his professions of godliness. Many look upon it only as a compliment to visit their friends in sorrow; we must look life. And if the example of Job' friends is not enough to lead us to pity the afflicted, let us seek the mind that was in Christ __________________________________________________________________
