D'3Pres -une deslois providcnlielles qui regissenl le monde, rarement les ocuvres au-dessus de 1'ordiuairc sc (biil 

tans conlradictions plu- ou nmius forlesel imnibreuses. Les Ateliers Callioliques n.e pnuvaient guere eehapper a ce 

cachel divin de leur militc. Tanloton a nie leur existence ouleur importance; lantotonadit qu'its ctaient fermes 

ou quMls «liaient 1'etre. CependanliU poursuivent leur carriere depuis 21 ans, et les produclions qui en sortent 

nnent de plus en plus graves et soignees : aussi parait-il cerlain qu'ii moins d'evenetjients qn'aucune prudeiice 

hnmaine ne saurail prevoir ni empecher, ces Aleliers ne se fermeronl que qnand la Bibliothique du Clergi scra 

terminee en ses 2,000 volumea iu-i". Lepasse paratt un sflr gar.mt de l'avenir, pour ce qu'il y aa esp.eWpuk 

traindre. Cependant, pnrml les ralomnies auxquelies ils se som trouves en butte, il en est deux qni <>ni 6ie ronti- 

ipjiI rep4t>5es, parce qu'elanl ptus capilalcs, leur eflet entralnait plus de consequences. De petiis ct ignarr? 

roncurrents se sonl donc ach.iruis. par leur correspondance ou leurs voyageurs, a ropetcr partout que nos Kdiiimi? 

. aienl mal corrigees el mal imprimees. Ne pouvant attaquer le fond des Ouvrages", qui, pour la plupart, ne sont 

que les chefs d'oeu>. re du Calholicisme reconnus pour tels dans tnus les temps et dans tous les pays, il fallail l>ien 

jeter sur la forme dans ce qu'ella a de plus serieux , la correction et l'impressi/ en effet, ies chefs-d'ceuvre 

ni"'ine n'auraient qu'une demi-valeur, si le le cle en «itait inexact ou ilii-dble. 

II esl tres-vrai que, dans le principe, un succes inoui dans les fastes de la Typographie ayant forc6 l*Edileur de 

ii ju\ mecaniqnes, alin de marcher plus rapidement etde donner les ouvrages a moindre prix, qiialre volumes 

uble Cotivs d Bcriture samle et tle Theologie lureni lires avec la correclion insuffisante dnnnee dans les imprir 

i ies a presque tout ce qui sYrdite; il est vrai aussi qu'iin cerlain nombre d'aulres volumes, appartenatil a diverses 

Publicalions furenl imprtmes ou trop noir ou trop bianc. Mais , depuis ces temps eloigues, les mecaniques ont 

e travail aux presses ii br.is, el Pimpression qui en sort, sans etre du luxe, altendu que le luxe jurerait dans 

des ouvrages d'une lelle nalure, est parfailement conyenable sous tous les rapports. (Juanl ii la correction, il est 

I lil quelle u'a jamais ete porlee si loin dans aucune edition ancienne ou contemporaine. Etcommenl en serail-il 

' i ment , apres loules les peines el Imiles les depenses que nnus subissons pour arriver a purger nos epreuves de 

loules raulesr L'habilude, en typogfaphie, meme dans lcs meilieures maisons, est de ne corriger que, deux epreuves 

el ii'i n conferer uue troisieme avec la seconde, sans avoir prSparS en rien le manuscritda 1'auteur. 

Dans les Aleliers Catholiques la diiference est presque incommensurabie. Au moyen de correcteurs blanrhis sous 
I haroais et donl le coup d'ccil typographique esi sans pilie pour les faules, on commence par pri-parer la copie d'un 
Liiiil ii laulre sans en exceplcr im seul niot. On lil ensuile en premiere epreuve avec la copie aiusi preparee. On lil 
rn seconde de la meme maniere, rnais en collationnaqt avec la premiere. On fait la mchie cbose en tierce, en colla- 
li ii ii a ii t avec l.i seconde. On agil de meiue en quarie, en collalionnant avec la tierce. On renouvelle la meme ope- 
ration en quinte, en collaliniiiiaiil aur la quarle. C.es cnllalionnemenls ont pour but de voir si aucune des laules 
s nalees au bureau par MM. les correcteurs, sur la marge des cpreuves, n'a echappe ii M.M. les corrigeurs sur le 
m rbre el le meial. ipres ces cinq leclures entierss conti'6IC j es 1'iine par 1'aulre, el en dehors de la priiparation 
i dessus menlionnfie.vient nne revision, ei souventil en vieul deux nu trois; puis l'on cliche. I e clichage opirfl, par 
i ■'.; i pui i du lexte se trouvant immohilisee, rai fait, avcc la copie, une nouvclle ieclure d'un bniit de l'e- 

I uve a 1'autre, ou se livre a une nouvelle revision , et le tirage n',:iri\r qu'apres ces innombrables precautions. 
Aussiya t il ii Montronge dcs correcleurs de loules les nalions el en plus grand nonibre que dans vingt-cinq 

ii;i rimeries de Paris reunies ! Aus^i encore, la correction y cnOie-i-elle auljn! que la compositinn, tandis qu'ailleurs 
ell • oe coflle qiie le dixieme ! Aus^i enfin, bien que 1'asserlion puisse paraltre Iflmeraire, 1'exaclilude obienue par 
i.i i de frais el de soins, fait-elle que la pluparl des Edilions iles Atetiers Catholigues laissent bien loin derriere elics 
i - iiieme des celibres lScnidiclins Mabillnn et Mnntlaucon cl d.s celebres Jesuiles Pelau et Sirmond. Que 1'ori 
compare, en effet, n'imporle quelles feuilles de leurs i-uiiions avec celles des ndires qui leur correspondeut, en grec 
i. ne en latin, ou se convaincra que i'invraisemblable cst une realite.

dix-huit mois detiule, inu' seule faute dans nolre Pulrologie latme. M. Denzinger, professeur de Theologie a ITii-

Antonin Caraffae, cardinali, cujus auspiciis hunc verlendi laborem in se susceperat, opus

missa ad Comitolum, negat auctoreni Catenae esse Olympiodorum (7), diaconuin Alex., uti 
interpreti ex protheoriis et amplioribus symbolis persuasum fuerat, sed, uti ipse potius 
fide plurium mss. codieum ostendit, Nicetam lleracleaj 1'onti in Thracia circa a. C. 1077 me- 
tropoiilam. Vnum, inquit, illud torsit, quod hujus coagmenlationis auctorem esse Olympio-

expiatione , tametsi ob fraternam benevolentiam 
amoremque mutuum, ca (ilii Jobi celebrarenl. Illud 
recte omnino, ne forte mala cogilaverint, non quod 
ejusmodi essent filii Jobi, sed quod homines essent. 
Qtiare et illud magnum, de occultis etiam soUicitum B 
esse, ac metiicre : quod quidem juslo buic accidit, 
ac propierea pro ipsis sacrilicium faciebat, et a 
peccatis illos liherabat. Quis autem talem curam li-

senno est , Job loquebatur : Dona ac facultates iis 
rclinquani , gloriam et principatum tradam , agros

Vers. 6. « Dixil aulcin Dominus diabolo ; Eccc, 
trado libi cuin : tantummodo aniinam ejus cuslodi 
(Tlieodolion vero, animam ejus ne lcligcris), » 

Chry/Oitomi et Olympiodori. Itursus bciiigniis 
Dcus, qni athletas suos corona insignicndo angelis 
et hominibus spectaculum p.ublicum prpponit, 
eliam boc diabolo largitur, neinpe, ut nos intelli- 
gamus, niliil siue diviuo (leruiissu posse diabolum : 
cujus quidem l>:ec erat vox, tu tange carnes ejus. 
Sed ne diabolus forle dicercl : Tu qiiidcm vulnus 
ei, lanqiiain fainiilo tuo, in spccicm infli|isti, quod 
pelebat facere nojuil, verum illius poleslali hoc 
permisil. 

Aut igilur hoc dicil, principeni animi parteill 
noli attingere, scd corporis cruciatibus certanien 
inito : et corpo. is quidein poleslatem illi permittit, 
v.erum ut cum corpore animain subducat, vcniain 
noii concedit ; quia insiauralione nova duplicata 
q bona illi resliluenda erant, et quae perierant rcdin- 
tegranda. 

. Rursus Miimk.ri iiiii hoc aurcum, diabuli igne pro- 
bat Deus, sed moderatione tamen adbibila, non 
eo profecto, ut perspiceret ipse, qiiem cognituin 
habebat, sed ut diabolum aperte refellcret, nobis- 
que viniin lau.lum facerel insiguein. Illudque, ani- 
mtim ejus custodi, pro illo cst, divinam iniatjincni 
kcdere ne tinics. Non eniin inimico custodiam 
auimie ejus cominisit : qua enim ratjone bostcin, 
qui ad bene faciendum natura non cst comparatus, 
luenda; aniiuae praefecisset ?

sibi ipsi, ct doloribus suis solatium afferens (nox 
cnim etiam illa prsleriit, cl astrorum cl phospliori 
lumen, quoil nocte illa resplenduit). Et quemad- 
modum qui a medicis uriinliir, scu sccantur, ad 
doloris significalionem, morsus veslibus infigunt : 
ila bcaius liic illa oninia flebiliter lamentatdr. Ad 
sensum vero : JSo.r illu sit dolor, id est, Peccalum, 
quod nialum sit, cognoscatur, ac proinde tanquam 
doloris causa odio babcaitir. Et uon veniat super 
cam ta-tiiia ; si euiin peccatum non remitteretur, 
sed nobis impularctur, advcrsarius nosler, nox sci- 
D licet illa, ct peccatorum parcns, gaudium gauderet

finem minime assei|ualur, ac proinde lugens pnctla 
frustretur, ut acerbius meoreat; ne siin cgo infenso 
hosli laetilix causa, illius jaculis vutneralus !

aae dolores ejus prolongandi essent; num eousque 
donec neq neque loqui amplius posset? 

Quam brevissimum igitur mibi, inquit, spatium ad 
uiiiiii remissionem largire, et adoloribus me libera. 
. ei ini : Donec deglutiam salivam meam, ae si 
diceret, qund moribundis accidere snlet, patior, 
Quale eliam est illud Davidis : Dimiite milii ui re- 
frigerer, priusquam abeo el amplius uon ero VJ . 
Idi mque alibi : Quousque, Domine, irasceris? Exar- 
descet, sicut ignis, ira tua"'! — Memento quas est 
substantia mea" 1 ; non vituperans, sed supplicans 
dicebat, et naturae imbecillitalem , supplicalionis 
argumentum faciebat : sicut ct hoc loeo Jobus, 
dolores suos uon ail mortem usque produci, sed 
luv\ i respiraliooe hui posiulat. Postca, Dcnni inagis 
deliniens, dicil : 

Vers. -0. « Qui scis menlem bominum, quarc 
posuisti nie ut loquerer adversus te? suin auteni 
super le onus. » 

."Smi te fugit, inquil, Domine, cni atliius cst ad 
intimas cogitationes, quod sifpe me servum tuum 
luec patienlem et neglectum inluentes, nomen tuum 
blasphement; iia ul oneri quodammodo tili sim, 
asperitalis verborum et blaspbcmise eausa faclus. 
Illud igitur : Et hquerer adversus te, pro incusalionis 
eausa inlelligendum cst, non quod ipse de Deo 
qu< reretur. 

Vers. 21. « Quare non fecisli iniquilatis nieoc 
oblivionem, el purgalionem peccati mei. » 

l.i bxe eliam verba supplicationem in se conti-

An nun benignus cs, inquit, erga humanum genus? 
An non idoneus pcceaia condonare, et miseratio- 
niim luarum mullitudine peccalorem ab omni lalic 
piirum reddere? Qtiare non eiiam iinlii benignilate 
lua frui conceditur? si non mea, at iua causa. Cur, 
cum magnus el immensus sis, meam vilitatem non 
contempsisti ? Cur non, omisso examine, delicta 
mca propler misericordiam et clementiam luam, 
neglexisti, aut plane oblitlerasti ? sed ad jusius 
calculos cuncia exigens, delictorum poenas a ine

507 COMPIODOR1 

Vebs. 3. < Nunquid Dominus injuslc agct judi- 
cans? aul gui omnia fecit, lurbabii jusliliam? > 

Chrysost., Polychron. el Olympiod. Nonne vides, 
inquit, quanla sii aequilas in crealura, el ordinata 
Jisposilio? An lieri potes'l ul Deus contra aliquem 
sentenliam sinc judicio cl ralione feral ? An, qui 
omnia dccentcr et harmonicc fecit , ei in inilio b ■ 
lignitate sua et clemenlia produxil, sequitalis jura 
in te uno perverlit, el conlra jus et fas malis te af- 
llixii? Tacite igitur sanclum ferit, tanquam jure, et 
propter peccata, adversa paleretur; in eadem opi- 
nione cum superiore exsistens fc quod scilicct tribu- 
lationesdalHictionesobpeccalumomninobominibus 
immUtantur. Oportebal auiem animo reputare, <i<i'mI 
cjusmodi non tantum pravis, sed probis etiam con- 
tingant(quippe qua adiaphora sint),et ([iioil justus, 
tolerando aerumnas et dolores , admirabilior redda- 
iur. Poslquam autcm illum peccati arguere non pos- 
set, ad liberos sc convertit, el dicit : 

Vebs. 1. « Si iilii tui peceaverunt corara co, misit 
in niaiiu iniquitales corum. » 

Scnsus autcin verborum hic est : Si liberi lui pec- 
caverunt, nonnejuslo supplicio affecti suni? lllud 
autem : coram co, dixit, quia nihil Deum lalcal. ln 
manu autcni, id est, in aclionc , quasi diccrcl : Se- 
cundum ipsorum actiones praemium reportarunt, ct 
omnino delicta liberorum luorum Dcus mortis sup- 
plieio punivit ; cl misit in manu sua iniquitates co- 
rum, id cst, iniquitatum supplicia : iunuit autem 
aedium ruinam, qua liberi inierempli fuerunl. lu hoc 
vcro quod dicii (Si lu non peccasti , filii tamen lui 
peccaverunt), sermonem confundit , ct opinionum 
mulliludine circumagitur, sccum minime pcrpcn- 
ilens, quod altcr pro altcro nequaquam pleclatur. 

Verb o-7. « Tu autcin diluculo surge, ad Domi- 
numomnipotentcmdeprecans.Si mundusesei verax, 
deprecationem exaudiet luam ; rcstiiuct autem libi 
babitacoium justitiae. Et erunt priora quidem lua 
pauca, novissima autem tua inenarrabilia. > 

Consulo, inquit, tibi, ut cum omni studio ctdili- 
gentia Deiim orcs, ci prccibus rcs alias omnes post- 

I as; illud enim significat, Surge diluculo. Et si 

reipsa vcrus sis absque omni fuco et fallacia, vitae 
condilionem el stalum viro justo dignum tibi resti- 
iuci, lanlaque rerum omniuin felicitale frueris , ul 
priora tua bona poslerioribus collala, exigua exisli-

Vebs. 8, 9. « Lnterroga enim generationem pri- 
mam, et investiga per genus patrum : hcstemi enim 
sumus, et nescimus : umbraenim est nostra super 
icn.iiii vita. i 

Antiqua; inquit, inquirito, el qtue palrum tempo- 
ribus gesta sunt, investiga ; nos enim beri ct nu- 
liustertius exslitimus, beri ct bodie vivimus, el vita 
uostra universa, tanquam umbra, prxierit ; ac

Vers. 1, 2. < Pereo spirilu agitalus : oro autein 
septilcrum, et non conlingit mihi ; preces adhibeo 
ciim labore, cl qiiid fcci? > 

Prae serumnis, inquit, etdoloribus iu angnstias 
conjectus, animo suni perlurbato ; nemineiu vero 
iiijuriarum judicein habens, nec liberationem a 
nialis, aut vit;e exiluin reperiens, scd cogitatio- 
iiiiin aestu undique Qucluans, et cuncta quae inihi 
acciderunt conleniplans, pereo : unde lil ut mor- 
teni desiderem, el consilii inopia laborem, quod 
illam assequi non valeam. lllud enim, Preres adlii- 
beo, id est, Aniini, imjuit, pcndeo ; vel, Sepullurse 
tradi enixc pelo; falsis autem rationibus decipior, 
D nec voti compos Qo. Animadverte igitur, quod 
(prout in inilio diximus) morteni exoplet ; veritus 
tamen eiim ijui aniuiam corpori conjunxit, violen- 
tas iiianus sibi non injecerit, cum in potestate sua 
esset mortem sibi consciscere. 

< Et furati sunt extranei bona mea. > 

Eqnites, inqnit, et bostos, bona mea cuin pote- 
staic deprsedantes , abierunt : ego vcro in mediis 
malis, lanquamin alto oceano jactaius, nullum cxi- 
tum calamitalum video.

Deinde acrius in Jobum rursus invebiiur, ac dicit :

cussisli, «t spiritum intelligeutiaj, quo nobis recte 
fespondisti, audiam. Iloec autcm ironice Sopharum

Ambulate in lumine ignis vestri, et in flamma

Vers. 11. c Ossa ejus implcta sunt juvemuie

Impieti suni animi ejus nervi juvenili cupiditate: 
morte autem omnia delente, luxus nullum liicrum 
ei afferet, nec quidquam, praeter solani ipsius cupi- 
dilatem, injustas scilicet actiones, una cum ipso in 
sepulcrum descendet. 

Vers. 1">, 14. < ISon pareet ei, et non relinquet 
cam, et colliget eam in medio gutture suo, et non 
poterit subvenire sibi. >

«jnaiii dulceni aliquem cibuni cum yoluptate in

une daranum et perniciem aliorura machinatus

Klipli.rzus qiiiilein actiones hominum supra mo- 

Ciluin impiorum Jusio aflinaens, eravissimis cnnlu- 
meliis enm affecerat; Justus autem respondcns, 
inquil : JJovi ipioil 110:1 es vesiris sermonibus, sed 
ex actionibus meis judicandus siin :<licet enim Deus 
supplicio pmiiat, ejus lamen verilate inullum fre- 
tus, causae meae eequitatem libenter coram eo pro- 
ponam, ct senlentiam ejus exspectabo. Deinde 
Deiim invisiliileiii ei incomprehensibilem csse affir- 
iuans, rursus hxsitabundus amicos alloquitur : 
Quandoquidera me impietatis crimine arcessitis, et 
calamilales meas delictorum argumentum slaluitis ; 
res|iomleie niihi cur impios multa et gra\ia pa- 
trantes l)eus adeo patienter ferat, quasi ea quae al> 
iis fiuiii, liaml animadverterel '.' Postea liujusmodi 
hominibus imprecatus, poenas illos daturos allirmat, 
lieet tlivina palienlia 1I111 perJurassenl ; et dictorum 
D suorum veritale conlisus : Si luer, inquit, vera non 
siut, cuivis integrum sii ea redarguere. Atque hic 
quidem sensus iM verborum Jobi ; ipsa autein dein- 
ceps sigillalim videamus. 

\i i;s. I , ^2. < Respondens aulem Job, ait : El qui- 
dem scio, quia de inanu mea est increpatio : et 
maiiMs ejus gravis facla est super gemitum 
metim. > 

Novi, impiii, ijuo.l vobis visiim est ex iis quse in 
iiiaoibiis sunt, id est, ex plaga, et non ex factis 
meis, cruninationes afferre: Deus enim graviter me 
insectatus est, ita ut gemitus ediderim. Quidam 
vero sic versus hos accepcrunt, el banc illorum 
inentcni esse voluerunt : Vestras , inquil, accusa- 



Lioncs Doecifacio, non cniin o\ iis de quibus me A 
falso criminamini, sed ex iis qu.c a ine gesta sunt, 
judicabor ; F)<-us quidem gravem in modum de me 
supplicium sumpsit. 

Vers. 9, i \ laeva si ij^e agct, ci non appreben- 
di ; circumtegel dextra, et non vidcbo. » 

Sensum autem borum verborum Symmacbus di- 
lucidius exprimens, sie reddidit: Ecce si antecedam 
ipstttn, videri 11011 potest; et »i subsecutus fuero, nan 
sentiam. Sensus vero hic esi : \ctionum inearum 
judicium divinis oculis libenler subjicio, verum 
ijnid est <jiio. 1 milii ciccidil? Deusnatura est invisi- 
bilis, quid iyiiur faciam? In iis quae ante me sunt 

(-•i ju.eram? oculiscerni non polest; ante me est, 

et non animadrerto : cum ad kevam sc converterit, 
apprehendere eum nequeo, ei ciim a dextris fuerit, B 
videre eum omnino non possum. ILec auiem ili\it, 
non qniNi Deus corporaliter, vel de Ioeo in locum 
transeundo obambulet, scil ut etmi ubi.jue praesen- 
lem esse osienderet, cl quod nostrum lamen cap- 
tuin fugiat, nec a nobis cowprehendi queal. Illud 
vero, Non ultra sum, vel seciuidum priorem ac- 
ceptionem intelligere potes, quoit, scilicet, si ad 
priora cogitatione progressus fuero, et lempus 
elapsum in nienlem revocavero, meipsum non e\si- 
stere, sed e\sistentiam, qualenus illa prateriit et 
cllluxit, ami^isse deprebendo. Vcl sicillud accipere 
potcs : Si mcniis scrutinium et curiosam sollieitudi- 
nem ulterius cxtendero, Deique primordia et initium 
imlagavero , extra me rapior, incompreliensibilem p 
comprehendere studens, cl ralionis discursus lene- 
bricosa caligine offuscatur. 

Yers. 10 12. < Scit cnim jam viam nieain ; pro- 
bavit atitem me sicut auru u. Egrediar autem in 
praeceplis ejus; vias eniin ejus custodivi, et non 
declino a praeeptis ejus, et non praeteream. > 

Idcirco, inquit, cum animi liducia Deumjudicem 
postulo, quia actiones meoe illi cognitae sunt ante- 
quam verbum protulero, etquia lcgemejus ct man- 
data cuslodivi. Handata autem boe loco dieil, non 
quaesub audilum cadereul, vel quaescriptis mamla- 
ivntur (liic enini sanctus ante legem lalam viN.il) 
sed i|iia; scriplis iiiiiiiine eonsignala, ijiijc cum na- 
tura ipsa una sata essem, et i]nue Deus in menlem 
insusurrasset. Illud autem : E( mm declino, cmjilia- I) 
siu quamdam admirandaui habel; licet, inquit, 
mala innumera passus fuero, a recio lamen tramite 

""" defleclam |ue Dei placita transgrediar ; 

< iii par illud esl : Qitis nos separabit a charitate 
Christi"! 

i In sinu auiem meo abscondi verba ejus. > 

Id est , ln parte aniini intellecliva , in inliniis 
mentis reecssibus, divina mandaia recondita scr- 
vavi , in sinu fovi, alque ita cum voluplate, :mi- 
nio sedato.ac pleno proposito, nou necessitale

impio canit : Qiuvrctur enim, inquit, peccatwn cjns,

Vkrs. 21. < Ejt conleratur sicut lignum insanabile

Lignum insanabilc vocat, quod postquam semel 
confraclum fuerit, cnram nullain admittit ut sanari 
possit, sed inutile in postenini manet. Qui in in- 
juslia, inquit, perseveral, instar hiijiis ligni eon- 
fringetur; einn enim dieit : Retribuabur ei, et, con- 
tcratur, non imprecatur justus, sed id quod oninino 
cvcnturum esl, dieil; uniisquisque enim sccnndum

Alii t/ero sic interpretali suni : Noqne gravis

prior explicatio haec ost : Talia, inquit, mihi evc- 
niant, si dixcrint ancillx mese, contra ineira accen- 
s;c : Partiamur eum intra nos, ot crudas ejus carne» 
absumamus ; scd cnm clcmens valde ci benignus

Devoremus eum , dixerunL, imprecationes contia

Viiits. 53, oi. « Quod si et cnm non spoiue pec-

nem admissum esset, confiteri non crubescens, poe- 
nilentia et confessione agnilo peccato medebatur. 

« Aul si dimisi infirmum sinu vacuo exire j:i- 
niiam lneam ; [Yers. 55] quis mihi tribuat audiln-

Forle vcro prudentcs auditores quserere videtur,

vsritis, si et cgo ad vos usque intelligere possum, 
id esl, donec vos etiam iiitellexeritis, vel veslram 
otiam intelligentiara excedam. 

Virm. 12-14. t Et ecce non erat ipsi Job qui ar- 
gueret, qui vicissim responderet verbis cjus ex vo- 
bis : ul ne dicatis : Invcnimus sapientiam Domino 
uljecti ; Iioiniiii aulem permisistis loqui lalia vcr- 
ba. i 

C.iiui nenic), inquit, vestruin Jobi sermones vitu- 
perare posset, ideo ego in vcrba prorupi : siquidem 
sermonis vcslri pars major iu co versabalur, ut pro 
Dco apologiam inslitueretis , ct patrocinium ejus 
susciperetis : Jobo autem conlradicere non valentes, 
silcntio vestro quodammodo illi concessistis ut bo- 
mo exsislens talia fastuose jaclitarcl, ct contra Dcuin 
b.uc loqucrctur. 

Prolheoria. 

Cum Eliuseausam qus ipsiini ad loquehdum iiu- 
pnlcrat, exposuisset, alto silcntio facto, sermonem 
suum persequitut et absorvit, verbaque Jobi, lan- 
quam seipswn jusliflcantis, ct cum Deojudicio 
contendere volentis, vituperal ; ipse quo animo ju- 
stus, ct quod ut iis qus ab amicis allata esscnt re- 
sponderet, haec ab illo diceieniur, non inlelligens;

impiorum, sive splendorem illorum et prosperam 
fortunam, in noclem et moerorem commutat, illos- 
i]ue liumiliat. 

Veks. 20. i Kt exstinxit impios; conspicui autem 
corain eo. > 

Iniquilalis, inquit, operarii, conspicui ei sunt : 
quare postquam exiguo tempore rebus prosperis 
claruerint, cxsiinguuniur. Conteinplatur elenim Deus 
impios, non secundum visitationem ejus opitula- 
Iricem, sed nt supplicio eos afficiat; juxla illud 
quod in Psalniis cst : Vultus autcm Uomini super 
facienles mula, ut perdal 72 . 

Vers. 27, 23. « Quoniam declinaveruut de lege 
T>ei, ct juslilicaiiones ejus non cognoverunt, ut 
perferalur ad eum clamor paupcrum; et clamorem 
mendicorum exaudiet. > 

Causas exponit, propter quas impii suppliciis 
.ilTiciuntur, quod scilieet Dci mandala non cogno- 
verint, neque exsecuii fuerint, sed a divina lege 
declinaverint. Clamorcm autem pauperum ad Deum 
perferri dicit, quia injuriam passi clamorem edunt, 
•♦■t supemum auxilium sibi eonciliant : ita ut ipsi 
aui injuriam inferunt, clamorem pauperis injuria 
affecli ad Ueum pcrferant. 

Vehs. 29. i Ki ipse quiclcm dabit, ri qnis con- 
demnabit? » 

Symmachus vero : lpso autem quietem dante, quis 
candemnabit? Vel igitur hoc dicit : Si Ucus causam 
eoruni qui injuriam patiunlur, vindicarc neglcxerit, 
quis alius potenles cl injustos condcmnare polerit? 
vel, Si Ueus dc hominc injusto supplicium sumere 
neglexerit, quis condcmnarc cum, aul lanquam in- 
justum accusare audebit? 

f Et abscondct facicm, et quis videbit eum? et 
contra genlcm, et contra bominem simul. > 

Hoc dicit, quia Ucus invisibilis exsistens, judicia 
tnvisibilia exerceat. Ralionihus aiilem et modis qui 
ipsi cogniti sunt, non taniiim viritim, sed genlibus 
cliam universis supplicia irrogat. 

Vers. 50. « Qui regnare facit homincm hypocri- 
tam proplcr perversitateni pnpuli. i 

Et hoc divins dispositionis et providentire est, 
ul proptcr populi iniprobilatem, quae castigatione 
indigel, regcin sxpenumero rcnuntiari sinat, qui ex- 
tcrna specie bonus apparct; qiicinadmoduni dixit : 
FA dcdi iis rcgcm in ira furoris mei 73 . 

Vr.ns. 51, 52. i Quoniam erga forlcm qui dicit : 
Suscepi, non auierara loco pignoris, absque me vi- 
debo; lu ostendc milii. > 

Quidain sic inlcrprclati sunt : Quod non ainleat 
quispiam fortiori diccrc : Injuste. mea abslulisli, 
noii pignoris loco lanquam debila, et invilo inilii 
eripuisli; jure. ei secundum rationeni lioc a te 
t.irinm ostende. Si aiilein polenliori nemo hxc di- 
cere audeat, qba andacia, inquit, contra Deum lu
