    SEV Biblia, Chapter 21:17

    ¶ ¡Oh cuntas veces el candil de los impíos es apagado, y viene sobre ellos su contricin, y con su ira Dios les reparte dolores!

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Job 21:17

    Verse 17. How oft is the candle of the wicked put out? ] The candle or lamp is often used, both as the emblem of prosperity and of posterity.

    Oftentimes the rejoicing of the wicked is short; and, not unfrequently, his seed is cut off from the earth. The root is dried up, and the branch is withered.

    God distributeth sorrows in his anger. ] He must be incensed against those who refuse to know, serve, and pray unto him. In his anger, therefore, he portions out to each his due share of misery, vexation, and wo.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 17-26 - Job had described the prosperity of wicked people; in these verses he opposes this to what his friends had maintained about their certai ruin in this life. He reconciles this to the holiness and justice of God. Even while they prosper thus, they are light and worthless, of n account with God, or with wise men. In the height of their pomp an power, there is but a step between them and ruin. Job refers the difference Providence makes between one wicked man and another, int the wisdom of God. He is Judge of all the earth, and he will do right So vast is the disproportion between time and eternity, that if hell by the lot of every sinner at last, it makes little difference if one goe singing thither, and another sighing. If one wicked man die in palace, and another in a dungeon, the worm that dies not, and the fir that is not quenched, will be the same to them. Thus differences in this world are not worth perplexing ourselves about.
