SEV Biblia, Chapter 36:1 Â¶ Y Añadió Eliú, y dijo:
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Job 36:1 Verse 1. Elihu also proceeded ] Mr. Heath gives a good summary of this chapter. Elihu goes on to lay before Job the impropriety of his behaviour towards God, and desires him to consider how vain it will prove. That God Almighty will never yield the point; that he will administer impartial justice to all men, ver. 2-6. That the general course of his providence is to favour the righteous: and that though he may sometimes correct them in love, yet if they submit patiently to his fatherly corrections, they shall enjoy all manner of prosperity; but if they be stubborn, and will not submit, they will only draw down greater proofs of his displeasure, ver. 7-16. He tells him that, had he followed the former course, he had probably, before now, been restored to his former condition; whereas, by persisting in the latter course, he was in a fair way of becoming a signal example of Divine justice, ver. 17, 18. He therefore warns him to use the present opportunity, lest God should cut him off while he was in a state of rebellion against him; for with God neither wealth, power, nor any other argument that he could use, would be of any avail, chap. xxxvi. 18-26.
That God was infinitely powerful; there was no resisting him: and infinitely wise, as sufficiently appeared by his works; there was, therefore, no escaping out of his hands. That his purity was so great that the sun, in his presence, was more dim than the smallest ray of light when compared to that grand luminary; that his holiness was manifest by his aversion to iniquity; and his goodness, in supplying the wants of his creatures.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-4 - Elihu only maintained that the affliction was sent for his trial; an lengthened because Job was not yet thoroughly humbled under it. He sought to ascribe righteousness to his Maker; to clear this truth, tha God is righteous in all his ways. Such knowledge must be learned from the word and Spirit of God, for naturally we are estranged from it. The fitness of Elihu's discourse to the dispute between Job and his friend is plain. It pointed out to Job the true reason of those trials with which he had been pointed out to Job the true reason of those trial with which he had been visited. It taught that God had acted in merc towards him, and the spiritual benefit he was to derive from them. I corrected the mistake of his friends, and showed that Job's calamitie were for good.
