    SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:8

    Como yo he visto que los que aran iniquidad y siembran injuria, la siegan.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Job 4:8

    Verse 8. They that plough iniquity ] A proverbial form of speech drawn from nature. Whatever seed a man sows in the ground, he reaps the same kind; for every seed produces its like. Thus Solomon, Prov. xxii. 8: "He that soweth iniquity shall reap vanity." And St. Paul, Gal. vi. 7, 8: "Be not deceived, God is not mocked; for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh, shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he who soweth to the Spirit, shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting." And of the same nature is that other saying of the apostle, He that soweth sparingly, shall reap sparingly, 2 Cor. ix. 6. The same figure is employed by the Prophet Hosea Hos. viii. 7: They have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind; and Hos. x. 12, 13: Sow to yourselves in righteousness; reap in mercy. Ye have ploughed wickedness; ye have reaped iniquity. The last sentence contains, not only the same image, but almost the same words as those used by Eliphaz. Our Lord expresses the same thing, in the following words: Matt. vii. 16-18: Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Every good tree bringeth forth good fruit, but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. So the Greeks: - athv aroura qanaton ekkarpizetai.

    AESCH. Ĉepta epi qhbaiv, ver. 607. "The field of iniquity produces the fruit of death." Ĉubriv gar exanqouv ekarpwse staxun athv, oqen pagklauton exama qerov.

    IB. perosai, ver. 823.

    "For oppression, when it springs, Puts forth the blade of vengeance; and its fruit Yields a ripe harvest of repentant wo." - POTTER.

    The image is common every where because it is a universal law of nature.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 7-11 - Eliphaz argues, 1. That good men were never thus ruined. But there is one event both to the righteous and to the wicked, Ec 9:2, both in lif and death; the great and certain difference is after death. Our wors mistakes are occasioned by drawing wrong views from undeniable truths 2. That wicked men were often thus ruined: for the proof of this Eliphaz vouches his own observation. We may see the same every day.
