SEV Biblia, Chapter 37:13 Unas veces por azote, otras por causa de su tierra, otras por misericordia las hará aparecer.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Job 37:13 Verse 13. He causeth it to come ] The Vulgate translates the text thus: Sive in una tribu, sine in terra sua, sive in quocunque loco misericordiae suae eas jusserit inveniri. "Whether in one tribe, or whether in his own land, or in whatsoever place of his mercy he has commanded them to come." In the preceding verse it is said that God conducts the clouds according to the orders of his counsels, whithersoever he pleases: and here it is added that, when he designs to heap favours upon any land, he commands the clouds to go thither, and pour out on it their fertilizing showers. See Calmet. The Vulgate certainly gives a good sense, and our common version is also clear and intelligble; but there are doubts whether the Hebrew will bear this meaning. Here it is stated that God sends the rain either for correction, fbl leshebet, which signifies rod, staff, tribe, and is here taken as the symbol of correction, he sends rain sometimes as a judgment, inundating certain lands, and sweeping away their produce by irresistible floods: or for his land, wxral leartso, his own land, Palestine, the place of his favoured people: or for mercy, dsjl lechesed; when a particular district has been devoured by locusts, or cursed with drought, God, in his mercy, sends fertilizing rains to such places to restore the ears which the caterpillars have eaten, and to make the desert blossom like the garden of the Lord. Some think that Job refers to the curse brought upon the old world by the waters of the deluge. Now although God has promised that there shall no more be a flood of waters to destroy the whole earth; yet we know he can, very consistently with his promise, inundate any particular district; or, by a superabundance of rain, render the toil of the husbandman in any place vain. Therefore, still his rain may come for judgment, for mercy, or for the especial help of his people or Church.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-13 - The changes of the weather are the subject of a great deal of ou thoughts and common talk; but how seldom do we think and speak of thes things, as Elihu, with a regard to God, the director of them! We mus notice the glory of God, not only in the thunder and lightning, but in the more common and less awful changes of the weather; as the snow an rain. Nature directs all creatures to shelter themselves from a storm and shall man only be unprovided with a refuge? Oh that men woul listen to the voice of God, who in many ways warns them to flee from the wrath to come; and invites them to accept his salvation, and to be happy. The ill opinion which men entertain of the Divine direction peculiarly appears in their murmurs about the weather, though the whol result of the year proves the folly of their complaints. Believer should avoid this; no days are bad as God makes them, though we make many bad by our sins. (Job 37:14-20)
