SEV Biblia, Chapter 13:34 Y esto fue causa de pecado a la casa de Jeroboam; por lo cual fue cortada y raída de sobre la faz de la tierra.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 13:34 Verse 34. And this thing became sin] These abominations were too glaring, and too insulting to the Divine Majesty, to be permitted to last; therefore his house was cut off, and destroyed from the face of the earth.
A HOLY priesthood, a righteous ministry, is a blessing to any state, because it has a most powerful effect on the morals of the community; inducing order, sobriety, and habits of industry, among the people: on the contrary, the profligacy of the clergy, and false principles of religion, are the most likely to unsettle a kingdom, and to bring about destructive revolutions in the state. This is the principle on which all national establishments of religion were originally formed. The state thought proper to secure a permanency of religion, that religion might secure the safety of the state; because it was supposed from the general aversion of men from good, that, if left to themselves, they would have no religion at all. Where the religion of the country is pure, founded solely on the oracles of God, it deserves the utmost sanction of the state, as well as the attention of every individual. A Christian state has surely authority to enact, The Christian religion is and shall be the religion of this land; and, prejudice apart, should not the laws provide for the permanence of this system? Is the form of Christianity likely to be preserved in times of general profligacy, if the laws do not secure its permanence? What would our nation have been if we had not had a version of the sacred writings established by the authority of the laws: and a form of sound words for general devotion established by the same authority? Whatever the reader may do the writer thanks God for the religious establishment of his country. For abuses in church or state, he is the last to contend.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 34. And this thing became sin unto the house of Jeroboam , etc.] All the above things were sins in themselves, as building high places, and putting priests in them, whoever would; but the sense is, that these were the causes of punishment, or of evil things being inflicted on Jeroboam’s family; sin is put for the punishment of sin, as it often is: even to cut it off, and to destroy it from off the face of the earth ; so that it become utterly extinct; and the next thing we hear of is the sickness and death of his son.
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 __________________________________________________________________
