    SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:17

    ¿Por ventura será el hombre más justo que Dios? ¿Será el varón más limpio que el que lo hizo?

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Job 4:17

    Verse 17. Shall mortal man ] wna enosh; Greek brotovù poor, weak, dying man.

    Be more just than God? ] Or, qdxy hwlam wnah haenosh meeloah yitsdak; shall poor, weak, sinful man be justified before God? Shall a man ] rbg gaber, shall even the strong and mighty man, be pure before his Maker? Is any man, considered merely in and of himself, either holy in his conduct, or pure in his heart? No. He must be justified by the mercy of God, through an atoning sacrifice; he must be sanctified by the Holy Spirit of God, and thus made a partaker of the Divine nature. Then he is justified before God, and pure in the sight of his Maker: and this is a work which God himself alone can do; so the work is not man's work, but God's. It is false to infer, from the words of this spectre, (whether it came from heaven or hell, we know not, for its communication shows and rankles a wound, without providing a cure,) that no man can be justified, and that no man can be purified, when God both justifies the ungodly, and sanctifies the unholy. The meaning can be no more than this: no man can make an atonement for his own sins, nor purify his own heart. Hence all boasting is for ever excluded. Of this Eliphaz believed Job to be guilty, as he appeared to talk of his righteousness and purity, as if they had been his own acquisition.


    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 __________________________________________________________________
