    SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:23

    pues aun con las piedras del campo tendrás tu concierto, y las bestias del campo te serán pacíficas.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Job 5:23

    Verse 23. Thou shalt be in league with the stones of the field ] Instead of ynba abney, stones, Mr. Good reads ynb beney, sons, or produce; but this reading is not supported by any ancient version, nor, as far as I know, by any MS. yet collated. We must, therefore, take up the text as we find it, and make the best we can of the present reading. The Chaldee gives a plausible sense: Thou needest not to fear, "because thy covenant is on tables of stone, which are publicly erected in the field; and the Canaanites, which are compared to the beasts of the field, have made peace with thee." Perhaps the reference is to those rocks or strong holds, where banditti secured themselves and their prey, or where the emirs or neighbouring chiefs had their ordinary residence. Eliphaz may be understood as saying: Instead, then, of taking advantage of thee, as the Sabeans have done, the circumjacent chieftains will be confederate with thee; and the very beasts of the field will not be permitted to harm thy flocks. Coverdale seems to have had an idea of this kind, as we find he translates the verse thus: - But the castels in the londe shall be confederate with the, And the beastes of the felde shall give the peace.

    I believe the above to be the meaning of the place. See the next verse.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 17-27 - Eliphaz gives to Job a word of caution and exhortation: Despise no thou the chastening of the Almighty. Call it a chastening, which come from the Father's love, and is for the child's good; and notice it as messenger from Heaven. Eliphaz also encourages Job to submit to his condition. A good man is happy though he be afflicted, for he has no lost his enjoyment of God, nor his title to heaven; nay, he is happ because he is afflicted. Correction mortifies his corruptions, wean his heart from the world, draws him nearer to God, brings him to his Bible, brings him to his knees. Though God wounds, yet he supports his people under afflictions, and in due time delivers them. Making a woun is sometimes part of a cure. Eliphaz gives Job precious promises of what God would do for him, if he humbled himself. Whatever trouble good men may be in, they shall do them no real harm. Being kept from sin, they are kept from the evil of trouble. And if the servants of Christ are not delivered from outward troubles, they are delivered by them, and while overcome by one trouble, they conquer all. Whatever i maliciously said against them shall not hurt them. They shall have wisdom and grace to manage their concerns. The greatest blessing, bot in our employments and in our enjoyments, is to be kept from sin. The shall finish their course with joy and honour. That man lives lon enough who has done his work, and is fit for another world. It is mercy to die seasonably, as the corn is cut and housed when fully ripe not till then, but then not suffered to stand any longer. Our times ar in God's hands; it is well they are so. Believers are not to expec great wealth, long life, or to be free from trials. But all will be ordered for the best. And remark from Job's history, that steadiness of mind and heart under trial, is one of the highest attainments of faith There is little exercise for faith when all things go well. But if God raises a storm, permits the enemy to send wave after wave, an seemingly stands aloof from our prayers, then, still to hang on an trust God, when we cannot trace him, this is the patience of the saints. Blessed Saviour! how sweet it is to look unto thee, the Autho and Finisher of faith, in such moments __________________________________________________________________
