    SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:27

    He aquí lo que hemos inquirido, lo cual es así: Oyelo, y juzga tú para contigo.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Job 5:27

    Verse 27. Lo this, we have searched it ] What I have told thee is the sum of our wisdom and experience on these important points. These are established maxims, which universal experience supports.

    Know-understand, and reduce them to practice for thy good. Thus ends Eliphaz, the Temanite, "full of wise saws and ancient instances;" but he miserably perverted them in his application of them to Job's case and character. They contain, however, many wholesome truths, of which the wise in heart may make a very advantageous practical use. THE predatory excursions referred to in ver. 23 were not unfrequent among our own barbarous ancestors. An affecting picture of this kind is drawn by Shakespeare, from Holinshed's Chronicles, of the case of Macduff, whose castle was attacked in his absence by Macbeth and his wife and all his children murdered. A similar incident was the ground of the old heroic ballad of Hardicanute. When the veteran heard that a host of Norwegians had landed to pillage the country, he armed, and posted to the field to meet the invading foe. He slew the chief in battle, and routed his pillaging banditti. While this was taking place, another party took the advantage of his absence, attacked his castle, and carried off or murdered his lovely wife and family; which, being perceived on his return by the war and age-worn chief, is thus affectingly described by the unknown poet: - Loud and chill blew the westlin wind, Sair beat the heavy shower, Mirk grew the nicht eir Hardyknute Wan neir his stately tower: His tower that us'd with torches bleise To shine sae far at night, Seim'd now as black as mourning weid, Nae marvel, sair he sich'd.

    "Thair's nae light in my lady's bowir, Thair's nae light in my hall; Nae blink shynes round my Fairly fair, Nor ward stands on my wall.

    "What bodes it, Thomas! Robert! say?" Nae answer-speaks their dreid; "Stand back, my sons, I'll be your gyde;" But bye they pass'd with speid.

    "As fast I haif sped owr Scotland's foes" There ceis'd his brag of weir.

    Sair schamt to mind ocht but his dame, And maiden Fairly fair.

    Black feir he felt; but what to feir He wist not yet with dreid; Sair schook his body, sair his limbs, And all the warrior fled.

    The ending of this poem is lost; but we here see that the castle of Hardicanute was surprised, and his family destroyed, or carried off, while he and his sons had been employed in defeating the invading Norwegians.

    Thank God! civilization, the offspring of the spread of Christianity, has put an end to these barbarous practices among us; but in the East, where Christianity is not, they flourish still. Britons! send out your Bible and your missionaries to tame these barbarians; for whom heathenism has done nothing, and the Koran next to nothing. Civilization itself, without the Bible, will do as little; for the civilized Greeks and Romans were barbarians, fell and murderous; living in envy and malice, hateful, hating one another, and offering hundreds at a time of human victims to their ruthless deities. Nothing but Christianity ever did, or even can, cure these evils.


    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 __________________________________________________________________
