SEV Biblia, Chapter 13:33 Después de esto no se tornó Jeroboam de su mal camino; antes volvió a hacer sacerdotes de los altos de entre el pueblo, y quien quería se consagraba, y era de los sacerdotes de los altos.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 13:33 Verse 33. Jeroboam returned not from his evil way] There is something exceedingly obstinate and perverse, as well as blinding and infatuating, in idolatry. The prediction lately delivered at Beth-el, and the miracles wrought in confirmation of it, were surely sufficient to have affected and alarmed any heart, not wholly and incorrigibly hardened; and yet they had no effect on Jeroboam! Made-the lowest of the people priests] So hardy was this bad man in his idolatry that he did not even attempt to form any thing according to the model of God's true worship: he would have nothing like God and truth.
In his calves, or rather oxen, he copied the manner of Egypt; and in the formation of his priesthood, he seems to have gone aside from all models.
Amongst the worst of heathens, the priesthood was filled with respectable men; but Jeroboam took of the lowest of the people, and put them in that office.
Whosoever would, he consecrated him] He made no discrimination: any vagabond that offered was accepted even of those who had no character, who were too idle to work, and too stupid to learn.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 33. After this thing Jeroboam returned not from his evil way , etc.] From the idolatrous practices he had started, and was establishing; though he had seen his altar rent, and the ashes poured out as the man of God predicted, his own hand withered, and that restored again upon the prayer of the prophet; and though he had heard of the death he died for his disobedience to the command of God, and the several marvellous things that attended it; these were so far from reforming him, that he seemed to be the more hardened thereby: but made again of the lowest of the people priests of the high places : and officiated there, and indeed those of the tribe of Levi would not serve there, and therefore were expelled their cities; (see 2 Chronicles 11:14).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 23-34 - God is displeased at the sins of his own people; and no man shall be protected in disobedience, by his office, his nearness to God, or an services he has done for him. God warns all whom he employs, strictl to observe their orders. We cannot judge of men by their sufferings nor of sins by present punishments; with some, the flesh is destroyed that the spirit may be saved; with others, the flesh is pampered, tha the soul may ripen for hell. Jeroboam returned not from his evil way He promised himself that the calves would secure the crown to his family, but they lost it, and sunk his family. Those betray themselve who think to support themselves by any sin whatever. Let us drea prospering in sinful ways; pray to be kept from every delusion an temptation, and to be enabled to walk with self-denying perseverance in the way of God's commands __________________________________________________________________
