SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:12 Â¶ El negocio también me era a mí oculto; mas mi oído ha percibido algo de ello.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Job 4:12 Verse 12. Now a thing was secretly brought to me ] To give himself the more authority, he professes to have received a vision from God, by which he was taught the secret of the Divine dispensations in providence; and a confirmation of the doctrine which he was now stating to Job; and which he applied in a different way to what was designed in the Divine communication.
Mine ear received a little thereof. ] Mr. Good translates, "And mine ear received a whisper along with it." The apparition was the general subject; and the words related ver. 17, &c., were the whispers which he heard when the apparition stood still.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 12-21 - Eliphaz relates a vision. When we are communing with our own hearts and are still, Ps 4:4, then is a time for the Holy Spirit to commun with us. This vision put him into very great fear. Ever since ma sinned, it has been terrible to him to receive communications from Heaven, conscious that he can expect no good tidings thence. Sinfu man! shall he pretend to be more just, more pure, than God, who being his Maker, is his Lord and Owner? How dreadful, then, the pride an presumption of man! How great the patience of God! Look upon man in his life. The very foundation of that cottage of clay in which man dwells is in the dust, and it will sink with its own weight. We stand but upo the dust. Some have a higher heap of dust to stand upon than others but still it is the earth that stays us up, and will shortly swallow us up Man is soon crushed; or if some lingering distemper, which consume like a moth, be sent to destroy him, he cannot resist it. Shall such creature pretend to blame the appointments of God? Look upon man in his death. Life is short, and in a little time men are cut off. Beauty strength, learning, not only cannot secure them from death, but thes things die with them; nor shall their pomp, their wealth, or power continue after them. Shall a weak, sinful, dying creature, pretend to be more just than God, and more pure than his Maker? No: instead of quarrelling with his afflictions, let him wonder that he is out of hell. Can a man be cleansed without his Maker? Will God justify sinfu mortals, and clear them from guilt? or will he do so without their having an interest in the righteousness and gracious help of their promised Redeemer, when angels, once ministering spirits before his throne, receive the just recompence of their sins? Notwithstanding the seeming impunity of men for a short time, though living without God in the world, their doom is as certain as that of the fallen angels, an is continually overtaking them. Yet careless sinners note it so little that they expect not the change, nor are wise to consider their latte end __________________________________________________________________
