SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:20 Â¶ Los de Judá y de Israel eran muchos, como la arena que está junto al mar en multitud, comiendo y bebiendo y alegrándose.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 4:20 Verse 20. Eating and drinking, and making merry.] They were very comfortable, very rich, very merry, and very corrupt. And this full feeding and dissipation led to a total corruption of manners.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 20. Judah and Israel [were] many, as the sand which [is] by the sea in multitude , etc.] Being blessed with great fruitfulness in their families, and having no pestilential disease among them, nor wars to lessen their number, and so the promise to Abraham was fulfilled, ( Genesis 22:17); and which was an emblem of Christ’s spiritual subjects, especially in the latter day, whom Solomon was a type of, (see Hosea 1:10); eating, and drinking, and making merry ; having a large increase of the fruits of the earth, and in no fear of any enemies; expressive of the spiritual joy of believers in the kingdom of Christ, and under the word and ordinances, ( Song of Solomon 2:3,4 5:1 Romans 5:2,3,11 14:17).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 20-28 - Never did the crown of Israel shine so bright, as when Solomon wore it He had peace on all sides. Herein, his kingdom was a type of the Messiah's; for to Him it is promised that he shall have the heathen for his inheritance, and that princes shall worship him. The spiritual peace, and joy, and holy security, of all the faithful subjects of the Lord Jesus, were typified by that of Israel. The kingdom of God is not as Solomon's was, meat and drink, but, what is infinitely better righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. The vast number of his attendants, and the great resort to him, are shown by the provisio daily made. Herein Christ far outdoes Solomon, that he feeds all his subjects, not with the bread that perishes, but with that which endure to eternal life.
