SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:16 Que es esperanza al menesteroso, y la iniquidad cerró su boca.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Job 5:16 Verse 16. So the poor ] ld dal, he who is made thin, who is wasted, extenuated; hath hope-he sees what God is accustomed to do, and he expects a repetition of gracious dealings in his own behalf; and because God deals thus with those who trust in him, therefore the mouth of impiety is stopped. Religion is kept alive in the earth, because of God's signal interventions in behalf of the bodies and souls of his followers.
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.
