SEV Biblia, Chapter 40:1 Â¶ Además de eso respondió el SEÑOR a Job y dijo:
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Job 40:1 Verse 1. Moreover the Lord answered ] That is, the Lord continued his discourse with Job. Answered does not refer to any thing said by Job, or any question asked. I think it very likely that this whole piece, from the beginning of this first verse to the end of the fourteenth, was originally the ending of the poem. Mr. Heath has noticed this, and I shall lay his words before the reader: "The former part of this chapter is evidently the conclusion of the poem; the latter part whereof seems to be in great disorder; whether it has happened from the carelessness of the transcriber, or, which appears most probable, from the skins of parchment composing the roll having by some accident changed their places. It is plain from the seventh verse of the forty-second chapter that Jehovah is the last speaker in the poem. If, then, immediately after the end of the thirty-ninth chapter, we subjoin the fifteenth verse of the forty-second chapter, and place the fourteen first verses of the fortieth chapter immediately after the sixth verse of the forty-second chapter, and by that means make them the conclusion of the poem, all will be right; and this seventh verse of the forty- second chapter will be in its natural order. The action will be complete by the judgment of the Almighty; and the catastrophe of the poem will be grand and solemn." To these reasons of Mr. Heath, Dr. Kennicott has added others, which the reader may find at the end of the chapter. Without taking any farther notice of the transposition in this place, I will continue the notes in the present order of the verses.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-5 - Communion with the Lord effectually convinces and humbles a saint, an makes him glad to part with his most beloved sins. There is need to be thoroughly convinced and humbled, to prepare us for remarkabl deliverances. After God had shown Job, by his manifest ignorance of the works of nature, how unable he was to judge of the methods and design of Providence, he puts a convincing question to him; Shall he tha contendeth with the Almighty instruct him? Now Job began to melt int godly sorrow: when his friends reasoned with him, he did not yield; but the voice of the Lord is powerful. When the Spirit of truth is come, he shall convince. Job yields himself to the grace of God. He owns himsel an offender, and has nothing to say to justify himself. He is no sensible that he has sinned; and therefore he calls himself vile Repentance changes men's opinion of themselves. Job is now convinced of his error. Those who are truly sensible of their own sinfulness an vileness, dare not justify themselves before God. He perceived that he was a poor, mean, foolish, and sinful creature, who ought not to have uttered one word against the Divine conduct. One glimpse of God's holy nature would appal the stoutest rebel. How, then will the wicked bea the sight of his glory at the day of judgment? But when we see thi glory revealed in Jesus Christ, we shall be humbled without being terrified; self-abasement agrees with filial love. (Job 40:6-14)
