SEV Biblia, Chapter 9:26 Pasaron con los navíos de Ebeh; o como el įguila que se arroja a la presa.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Job 9:26 Verse 26. As the swift ships ] hba twyna oniyoth ebeh. Ships of desire, or ships of Ebeh, says our margin; perhaps more correctly, inflated ships, the sails bellying out with a fair brisk wind, tide favourable, and the vessels themselves lightly freighted. The Vulgate has, Like ships freighted with apples. Ships laden with the best fruits. - TARGUM. Ships well adapted for sailing. - ARABIC. Shipes that be good under sale. - COVERDALE.
Probably this relates to the light fast-sailing ships on the Nile, which were made of reeds or papyrus. Perhaps the idea to be seized is not so much the swiftness of the passage, as their leaving no trace or track behind them.
But instead of hba ebeh, hbya eybah, hostile ships or the ships of enemies, is the reading of forty-seven of Kennicott's and Deuteronomy Rossi's MSS., and of the Syriac version. If this be the true reading what is its sense? My days are gone off like the light vessels of the pirates, having stripped me of my property, and carried all irrecoverably away, under the strongest press of sail, that they may effect their escape, and secure their booty. The next words, As the eagle that hasteth to the prey, seem at least to countenance, if not confirm, the above reading: the idea of robbery and spoil, prompt attack and sudden retreat, is preserved in both images.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 25-35 - What little need have we of pastimes, and what great need to redee time, when it runs on so fast towards eternity! How vain the enjoyment of time, which we may quite lose while yet time continues! The remembrance of having done our duty will be pleasing afterwards; s will not the remembrance of having got worldly wealth, when it is all lost and gone. Job's complaint of God, as one that could not be appeased and would not relent, was the language of his corruption There is a Mediator, a Daysman, or Umpire, for us, even God's ow beloved Son, who has purchased peace for us with the blood of his cross, who is able to save to the uttermost all who come unto God through him. If we trust in his name, our sins will be buried in the depths of the sea, we shall be washed from all our filthiness, and mad whiter than snow, so that none can lay any thing to our charge. We shall be clothed with the robes of righteousness and salvation, adorne with the graces of the Holy Spirit, and presented faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy. May we learn the differenc between justifying ourselves, and being thus justified by God himself Let the tempest-tossed soul consider Job, and notice that others have passed this dreadful gulf; and though they found it hard to believ that God would hear or deliver them, yet he rebuked the storm, an brought them to the desired haven. Resist the devil; give not place to hard thoughts of God, or desperate conclusions about thyself. Come to Him who invites the weary and heavy laden; who promises in nowise to cast them out __________________________________________________________________
