SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:13 Que prende a los sabios en su astucia, y el consejo de sus adversarios es entontecido.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Job 5:13 Verse 13. He taketh the wise in their own craftiness ] So counterworks them as to cause their feet to be taken in their own snares, and their evil dealings to fall on their own pate. Such frequent proofs has God given of his especial interference in behalf of the innocent, who have been the objects of the plots and evil designs of the wicked, by turning those evil devices against their framers, that he who digs a pit for his neighbour shall fall into it himself has become a universal adage, and has passed, either in so many words or in sense, into all the languages of all the people of the earth. Lucretius expresses it strongly: Circumretit enim vis atque injuria quemque, Atque, unde exorta est, ad eum plerumque revortit. LUCRET. lib. v., ver. 1151.
"For force and wrong entangle the man that uses them; And, for the most part, recoil on the head of the contriver."
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 6-16 - Eliphaz reminds Job, that no affliction comes by chance, nor is to be placed to second causes. The difference between prosperity an adversity is not so exactly observed, as that between day and night summer and winter; but it is according to the will and counsel of God We must not attribute our afflictions to fortune, for they are from God; nor our sins to fate, for they are from ourselves. Man is born i sin, and therefore born to trouble. There is nothing in this world we are born to, and can truly call our own, but sin and trouble. Actua transgressions are sparks that fly out of the furnace of origina corruption. Such is the frailty of our bodies, and the vanity of all our enjoyments, that our troubles arise thence as the sparks fl upward; so many are they, and so fast does one follow another. Elipha reproves Job for not seeking God, instead of quarrelling with him. I any afflicted? let him pray. It is heart's ease, a salve for ever sore. Eliphaz speaks of rain, which we are apt to look upon as a littl thing; but if we consider how it is produced, and what is produced by it, we shall see it to be a great work of power and goodness. Too ofte the great Author of all our comforts, and the manner in which they ar conveyed to us, are not noticed, because they are received as things of course. In the ways of Providence, the experiences of some ar encouragements to others, to hope the best in the worst of times; for it is the glory of God to send help to the helpless, and hope to the hopeless. And daring sinners are confounded, and forced to acknowledg the justice of God's proceedings.
