SEV Biblia, Chapter 7:1 Â¶ Ciertamente tiempo determinado tiene el hombre sobre la tierra, y sus días son como los días del jornalero.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Job 7:1 Verse 1. Is there not an appointed time to man ] The Hebrew, with its literal rendering, is as follows: Ćra yl[ wnal abx alh halo tsaba leenosh aley arets, "Is there not a warfare to miserable man upon the earth?" And thus most of the versions have understood the words. The SEPTUAGINT: poteron ouci peirathrion esti o biov anqrwpou epi thv ghv; "Is not the life of man a place of trial upon earth?" The VULGATE: Militia est vita hominis super terram, "The life of man is a warfare upon earth?" The CHALDEE is the same. N'y a-t-il pas comme un train de guerre ordonne aux mortels sur la terre? "Is there not a continual campaign ordained for mortals upon the earth?" FRENCH BIBLE. The GERMAN and DUTCH the same. COVERDALE: Is not the life off man upon earth a very batayle? CARMARDEN, Rouen, 15l16: Hath man any certayne tyme upon earth? SYRIAC and ARABIC: "NOW, man has time upon the earth." Non e egli il tempo determinato a l'huomo sopra la terra?" "Is there not a determined time to man upon the earth?" BIB. ITAL., 1562. All these are nearer to the true sense than ours; and of a bad translation, worse use has been made by many theologians. I believe the simple sentiment which the writer wished to convey is this: Human life is a state of probation; and every day and place is a time and place of exercise, to train us up for eternal life. Here is the exercise, and here the warfare: we are enlisted in the bands of the Church militant, and must accomplish our time of service, and be honourably dismissed from the warfare, having conquered through the blood of the Lamb; and then receive the reward of the heavenly inheritance.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-6 - Job here excuses what he could not justify, his desire of death Observe man's present place: he is upon earth. He is yet on earth, no in hell. Is there not a time appointed for his abode here? yes certainly, and the appointment is made by Him who made us and sent u here. During that, man's life is a warfare, and as day-labourers, wh have the work of the day to do in its day, and must make up their account at night. Job had as much reason, he thought, to wish for death, as a poor servant that is tired with his work, has to wish for the shadows of the evening, when he shall go to rest. The sleep of the labouring man is sweet; nor can any rich man take so much satisfactio in his wealth, as the hireling in his day's wages. The comparison i plain; hear his complaint: His days were useless, and had long been so but when we are not able to work for God, if we sit still quietly for him, we shall be accepted. His nights were restless. Whatever i grievous, it is good to see it appointed for us, and as designed for some holy end. When we have comfortable nights, we must see them als appointed to us, and be thankful for them. His body was noisome. Se what vile bodies we have. His life was hastening apace. While we ar living, every day, like the shuttle, leaves a thread behind: many weav the spider's web, which will fail, ch. 8:14. But if, while we live, we live unto the Lord, in works of faith and labours of love, we shal have the benefit, for every man shall reap as he sowed, and wear as he wove.
