SEV Biblia, Chapter 24:1 Â¶ Puesto que no son ocultos los tiempos al Todopoderoso, Â¿por qué los que le conocen no ven sus días?
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Job 24:1 Verse 1. Why, seeing times are not hidden from the Almighty ] Mr. Good translates: "Wherefore are not doomsdays kept by the Almighty, so that his offenders may eye their periods?" Doomsdays are here used in the same sense as term times; and the wish is, that God would appoint such times that the falsely accused might look forward to them with comfort; knowing that, on their arrival, they should have a fair hearing, and their innocence be publicly declared; and their detractors, and the unjust in general, meet with their deserts. But God reserves the knowledge of these things to himself. "The holy patriarch," says Mr. Good, "has uniformly admitted that in the aggregate scale of Providence the just are rewarded and the wicked punished for their respective deeds, in some period or other of their lives. But he has contended in various places, and especially in chap. xxi. 7- 13, that the exceptions to this general rule are numerous: so numerous, as to be sufficient to render the whole scheme of providential interposition perfectly mysterious and incomprehensible, chap. xxiii. 8-12; so in the passage before us: if the retribution ye speak of be universal, and which I am ready to admit to a certain extent to be true and unquestionable, I not only ask, Why do the just ever suffer in the midst of their righteousness? but, Why do not the wicked see such retribution displayed before their eyes by stated judgments, so that they may at one and the same time know and tremble?"
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-12 - Job discourses further about the prosperity of the wicked. That man live at ease who are ungodly and profane, he had showed, ch. xxi. Her he shows that many who live in open defiance of all the laws of justice, succeed in wicked practices; and we do not see them reckone with in this world. He notices those that do wrong under pretence of law and authority; and robbers, those that do wrong by force. He says "God layeth not folly to them;" that is, he does not at once send his judgments, nor make them examples, and so manifest their folly to all the world. But he that gets riches, and not by right, at his end shal be a fool, Jer 17:11.
