SEV Biblia, Chapter 9:30 Aunque me lave con aguas de nieve, y aunque limpie mis manos con la misma limpieza,
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Job 9:30 Verse 30. If I wash myself with snow water ] Supposed to have a more detergent quality than common water; and it was certainly preferred to common water by the ancients. Of this we find an example in an elegant but licentious author: Tandem ergo discubuimus, pueris Alexandrinis AQUAM in manus NIVATAM infundentibus, aliisque insequentibus ad pedes. - PETR. Satyr., cap. xxxi. "At length we sat down, and had snow water poured on our hands by lads of Alexandria," &c. Mr. Good supposes that there is an allusion here to the ancient rite of washing the hands in token of innocence. See Psa. xxvi. 6: I will WASH my hands in INNOCENCY; and Psa. lxxiii. 13: Verily I have cleansed my heart in vain, and WASHED my HANDS IN INNOCENCY. And by this ceremony Pilate declared himself innocent of the blood of Christ, Matt. xxvii. 24.
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 __________________________________________________________________
