    SEV Biblia, Chapter 10:9

    Ni tentemos al Cristo, como tambin algunos de ellos lo tentaron, y perecieron por las serpientes.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 10:9

    Verse 9. Neither let us tempt
    Christ] I have already supposed, in the note on ver. 4, that Christ is intended by the spiritual rock that followed them: and that it was he, not the rock, that did follow or accompany the Israelites in the wilderness. This was the angel of God's presence who was with the Church in the wilderness, to whom our fathers would not obey, as St. Stephen says, Acts vii. 38, 39. Instead of criston, Christ, several MSS. and a few versions have kurion, the Lord, and some few qeon, God. But though some respectable MSS. have the Lord instead of Christ, yet this latter has the greatest proportion of authority on its side. And this affords no mean proof that the person who is called hwhy Yehovah in the Old Testament, is called Christ in the New. By tempting Christ is meant disbelieving the providence and goodness of God; and presuming to prescribe to him how he should send them the necessary supplies, and of what kind they should be, &c.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 9. Neither let us tempt
    Christ , etc.] As all such persons do, who, presuming on the power and grace of Christ to keep them, or upon what they have received from him, unnecessarily expose themselves to snares and temptations, and so to danger; and as many of the Corinthians did, who are here chiefly respected, who trusting to their gifts and attainments, their knowledge and Christian liberty, would go into an idols temple, sit down at meat there, and exposed themselves great and imminent danger; which was a tempting Christ, whether he would preserve them or not: as some of them also tempted ; that is, as some of the Israelites tempted, which they did more than once; but what is referred to here, is the time they spake against God and Moses, in ( Numbers 21:5,6) as appears from the punishment annexed, their being destroyed by serpents. The Arabic version adds him, meaning Christ, which is a right interpretation of the text; otherwise there would be no force in the apostles reasoning; for Christ was the angel that went before the Israelites in the wilderness, the angel of Gods presence, that bore, and carried, and saved them; he is the Jehovah they tempted at Massah and Meribah, and elsewhere, and God they spake against at this place referred to; hence it is clear that our Lord existed before his incarnation, and that he is truly and properly God; the Alexandrian copy reads, neither let us tempt God, and so the Ethiopic version: and were destroyed of serpents; fiery ones, which were sent among them by the Lord Christ, they tempted and spoke against, which bit them, and of these bites many of them died. This might lead to the consideration, of the original cause of mans sin and fall, and the ruin of human nature, by the means of a serpent; and may be an emblem of the future destruction of the wicked, which will be everlasting fire, prepared for the devil, the old serpent, and his angels.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 6-14 -
    Carnal desires gain strength by indulgence, therefore should be checke in their first rise. Let us fear the sins of Israel, if we would shu their plagues. And it is but just to fear, that such as tempt Christ will be left by him in the power of the old serpent. Murmuring agains God's disposals and commands, greatly provokes him. Nothing in Scripture is written in vain; and it is our wisdom and duty to lear from it. Others have fallen, and so may we. The Christian's securit against sin is distrust of himself. God has not promised to keep u from falling, if we do not look to ourselves. To this word of caution a word of comfort is added. Others have the like burdens, and the lik temptations: what they bear up under, and break through, we may also God is wise as well as faithful, and will make our burdens according to our strength. He knows what we can bear. He will make a way to escape he will deliver either from the trial itself, or at least the mischie of it. We have full encouragement to flee from sin, and to be faithfu to God. We cannot fall by temptation, if we cleave fast to him. Whethe the world smiles or frowns, it is an enemy; but believers shall be strengthened to overcome it, with all its terrors and enticements. The fear of the Lord, put into their hearts, will be the great means of safety.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    9. Let us tempt
    Christ (ekpeirazwmen ton Criston). The compound word is very significant, "to tempt out" (ek); tempt thoroughly; try to the utmost. It occurs in three other places: Matt. iv. 7; Luke iv. 12; x. 25; and, in every case, is used of tempting or testing Christ. Compare Psalm lxxvii. 18 (Sept.). For Christ read Kurion the Lord.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    10:9 {Neither let us tempt the
    Lord} (mede ekpeirazwmen ton kurion). So the best MSS. instead of Christ. this compound occurs in LXX and in N.T. always about Christ (here and #Mt 4:7; Lu 4:12; 10:25). Let us cease sorely (ek-) tempting the Lord by such conduct. {And perished by the serpents} (kai hupo twn ofewn apwllunto). Vivid imperfect middle (cf. aorist middle apwlonto in verse #10), were perishing day by day. The story is told in #Nu 21:6. The use of hupo for agent with the intransitive middle of apollumi is regular. Note the Ionic uncontracted genitive plural ofewn rather than ofwn.
