    SEV Biblia, Chapter 20:12

    Si el mal se endulzˇ en su boca, si lo ocultaba debajo de su lengua;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Job 20:12

    Verse 12. Though wickedness be sweet in his mouth ] This seems to refer to the secret sins mentioned above.

    Hide it under his tongue ] This and the four following verses contain an allegory; and the reference is to a man who, instead of taking wholesome food, takes what is poisonous, and is so delighted with it because it is sweet, that he rolls it under his tongue, and will scarcely let it down into his stomach, he is so delighted with the taste; "he spares it, and forsakes it not, but keeps it still within his mouth," ver. 13. "But when he swallows it, it is turned to the gall of asps within him," ver. 14, which shall corrode and torture his bowels.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 10-22 - The miserable condition of the wicked man in this world is fully se forth. The lusts of the flesh are here called the sins of his youth His hiding it and keeping it under his tongue, denotes concealment of his beloved lust, and delight therein. But He who knows what is in the heart, knows what is under the tongue, and will discover it. The love of the world, and of the wealth of it, also is wickedness, and man set his heart upon these. Also violence and injustice, these sins brin God's judgments upon nations and families. Observe the punishment of the wicked man for these things. Sin is turned into gall, than whic nothing is more bitter; it will prove to him poison; so will all unlawful gains be. In his fulness he shall be in straits, through the anxieties of his own mind. To be led by the sanctifying grace of God to restore what was unjustly gotten, as Zaccheus was, is a great mercy But to be forced to restore by the horrors of a despairing conscience as Judas was, has no benefit and comfort attending it.
