    He seemeth to have moisture before the sun cometh, and at his rising his blossom shall shoot forth.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    He is
    green before the sun, and his branch shooteth forth in his garden.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:16

    A manera de un árbol , está verde delante del sol, y sus renuevos salen sobre su huerto;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Job 8:16

    Verse 16. He is green before the sun ] This is another metaphor. The wicked is represented as a luxuriant plant, in a good soil, with all the advantages of a good situation; well exposed to the sun; the roots intervolving themselves with stones, so as to render the tree more stable; but suddenly a blast comes, and the tree begins to die. The sudden fading of its leaves, &c., shows that its root is become as rottenness, and its vegetable life destroyed. I have often observed sound and healthy trees, which were flourishing in all the pride of vegetative health, suddenly struck by some unknown and incomprehensible blast, begin to die away, and perish from the roots. I have seen also the prosperous wicked, in the inscrutable dispensations of the Divine providence, blasted, stripped, made bare, and despoiled, in the same way.

    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.
