Job 31:40

Let thistles grow instead of wheat, and weeds instead of barley. The words of Job are ended.
All Commentaries on Job 31:40 Go To Job 31

John Chrysostom

AD 407
“If my land has ever cried out against me, or if its furrows have wept together.” Therefore, neither the land cries out nor weeps. What does he mean? Certainly the land does not really groan, but inanimate beings perceive injustices. As the prophet asserts, “The earth stood up and shuddered.” Now the earth moans every time we make an unjust use of its fruits.
