SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:7 Â¶ Y salió Satanás de delante del SEÑOR, e hirió a Job de una maligna sarna desde la planta de su pie hasta la coronilla de su cabeza.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Job 2:7 Verse 7. Sore boils ] [r yjb bischin ra, "with an evil inflammation." What this diabolical disorder was, interpreters are not agreed. Some think it was the leprosy, and this is the reason why he dwelt by himself, and had his habitation in an unclean place, without the city, (Septuagint, exw thv pwlewv,) or in the open air: and the reason why his friends beheld him afar off, ver. 12, was because they knew that the disorder was infectious. His scraping himself with a potsherd indicates a disease accompanied with intolerable itching, one of the characteristics of the smallpox. Query, Was it not this disorder? And in order to save his life (for that he had in especial command) did not Satan himself direct him to the cool regimen, without which, humanly speaking, the disease must have proved fatal? In the elephantiasis and leprosy there is, properly speaking, no boil or detached inflammation, or swelling, but one uniform disordered state of the whole surface, so that the whole body is covered with loathsome scales, and the skin appears like that of the elephant, thick and wrinkled, from which appearance the disorder has its name. In the smallpox it is different; each pock or pustule is a separate inflammation, tending to suppuration; and during this process, the fever is in general very high, and the anguish and distress of the patient intolerable. When the suppuration is pretty far advanced, the itching is extreme; and the hands are often obliged to be confined to prevent the patient from literally tearing his own flesh.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 7-10 - The devil tempts his own children, and draws them to sin, an afterwards torments, when he has brought them to ruin; but this chil of God he tormented with affliction, and then tempted to make a bad us of his affliction. He provoked Job to curse God. The disease was very grievous. If at any time we are tried with sore and grievou distempers, let us not think ourselves dealt with otherwise than as God sometimes deals with the best of his saints and servants. Job humble himself under the mighty hand of God, and brought his mind to his condition. His wife was spared to him, to be a troubler and tempter to him. Satan still endeavours to draw men from God, as he did our firs parents, by suggesting hard thoughts of Him, than which nothing is mor false. But Job resisted and overcame the temptation. Shall we, guilty polluted, worthless creatures, receive so many unmerited blessings from a just and holy God, and shall we refuse to accept the punishment of our sins, when we suffer so much less than we deserve? Let murmuring as well as boasting, be for ever done away. Thus far Job stood the trial, and appeared brightest in the furnace of affliction. There migh be risings of corruption in his heart, but grace had the upper hand.
