SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:13 Tales son los caminos de todos los que olvidan a Dios; y la esperanza del impío perecerá.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Job 8:13 Verse 13. So are the paths ] The papyrus and the rush flourish while they have a plentiful supply of ooze and water; but take these away, and their prosperity is speedily at an end; so it is with the wicked and profane; their prosperity is of short duration, however great it may appear to be in the beginning. Thou also, O thou enemy of God, hast flourished for a time; but the blast of God is come upon thee, and now thou art dried up from the very roots.
The hypocrite's hope shall perish ] A hypocrite, or rather profligate, has no inward religion, for his heart is not right with God; he has only hope, and that perishes when he gives up the ghost. This is the first place in which the word hypocrite occurs, or the noun Pnj chaneph, which rather conveys the idea of pollution and defilement than of hypocrisy. A hypocrite is one who only carries the mask of godliness, to serve secular purposes; who wishes to be taken for a religionist, though he is conscious he has no religion. Such a person cannot have hope of any good, because he knows he is insincere: but the person in the text has hope; therefore hypocrite cannot be the meaning of the original word. But all the vile, the polluted, and the profligate have hope; they hope to end their iniquities before they end life; and they hope to get at last to the kingdom of heaven. Hypocrite is a very improper translation of the Hebrew.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 8-19 - Bildad discourses well of hypocrites and evil-doers, and the fatal en of all their hopes and joys. He proves this truth of the destruction of the hopes and joys of hypocrites, by an appeal to former times. Bilda refers to the testimony of the ancients. Those teach best that utte words out of their heart, that speak from an experience of spiritual and divine things. A rush growing in fenny ground, looking very green but withering in dry weather, represents the hypocrite's profession which is maintained only in times of prosperity. The spider's web, spu with great skill, but easily swept away, represents a man's pretension to religion when without the grace of God in his heart. A forma professor flatters himself in his own eyes, doubts not of his salvation, is secure, and cheats the world with his vain confidences The flourishing of the tree, planted in the garden, striking root to the rock, yet after a time cut down and thrown aside, represents wicke men, when most firmly established, suddenly thrown down and forgotten This doctrine of the vanity of a hypocrite's confidence, or the prosperity of a wicked man, is sound; but it was not applicable to the case of Job, if confined to the present world.
