    SEV Biblia, Chapter 28:11

    Detuvo los ríos en su nacimiento, e hizo salir a luz lo escondido.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Job 28:11

    Verse 11. He bindeth the floods ] Prevents the risings of springs from drowning the mines; and conducts rivers and streams from their wonted course, in order to bring forth to light what was hidden under their beds.

    The binding or restraining the water, which, at different depths, annoys the miner, is both difficult and expensive: in some cases it may be drawn off by pipes or canals into neighbouring water courses; in others, it is conducted to one receptacle or reservoir, and thence drawn off. In Europe it is generally done by means of steam-engines. What method the ancients had in mining countries, we cannot tell; but they dug deep in order to find out the riches of the earth. PLINY says, nervously, Imus in viscera terrae; et in sede manium opes quaerimus. "We descend into the bowels of the earth; and seek for wealth even in the abodes of departed spirits." The manes or ghosts of the dead, or spirits presiding over the dead, were supposed to have their habitation in the center of the earth; or in the deepest pits and caves. OVID, speaking of the degeneracy of men in the iron age, Met. lib. i., ver. 137, says: - Nec tantum segetes alimentaque debita dives Poscebatur humus; sed itum est in viscera terrae: Quasque recondiderat, Stygiisque admoverat umbris, Effodiuntur opes, irritaenenta malorum.

    Jamque nocens ferrum, ferroque nocentius aurum Prodierat: prodit bellum, quod pugnat utroque; Sanguineaque manu crepitantia concutit arma.

    "Nor was the ground alone required to bear Her annual income to the crooked share: But greedy mortals, rummaging her store, Digg'd from her entrails first the precious ore; And that alluring ill to sight display'd, Which, next to hell, the prudent gods had laid.

    Thus cursed steel, and more accursed gold, Gave mischief birth, and made that mischief bold; And double death did wretched man invade, By steel assaulted, and by gold betray'd." DRYDEN.

    By binding the floods from overflowing, some have supposed that there is an allusion to the flux and reflux of the sea. In its flowing it is so bound, has its bounds assigned by the Most High, that it does not drown the adjacent country; and in its ebbing the parts which are ordinarily covered with the water are brought to view.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-11 - Job maintained that the dispensations of Providence were regulated by the highest wisdom. To confirm this, he showed of what a great deal of knowledge and wealth men may make themselves masters. The caverns of the earth may be discovered, but not the counsels of Heaven. God to the miners, thou sluggard in religion, consider their ways, and be wise Let their courage and diligence in seeking the wealth that perishes shame us out of slothfulness and faint-heartedness in labouring for the true riches. How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! How muc easier, and safer! Yet gold is sought for, but grace neglected. Wil the hopes of precious things out of the earth, so men call them, thoug really they are paltry and perishing, be such a spur to industry, an shall not the certain prospect of truly precious things in heaven be much more so?
