SEV Biblia, Chapter 12:25 Mas si perseverareis en hacer mal, vosotros y vuestro rey pereceréis.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Samuel 12:25 Verse 25. Ye shall be consumed] If ye do wickedly you shall be destroyed, your kingdom destroyed, and your king destroyed. Here they had set before them life and good, death and evil. Never was a people more fully warned, and never did a people profit less by the warning; and they continue to this day monuments of God's justice and forbearance. Reader, What art thou? Perhaps a similar monument. Consider therefore what great things God has done for thee.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 25. But if ye shall still do wickedly , etc.] Continue to rebel against God, revolt from him, and depart from his worship, and despise his prophets, and serve idols: ye shall be consumed, both ye and your king ; their king would be so far from protecting, that he should perish with them, be killed by the sword, as Saul their first king was, or go into captivity, as others of their kings did.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 16-25 - At Samuel's word, God sent thunder and rain, at a season of the yea when, in that country, the like was not seen. This was to convince the they had done wickedly in asking a king; not only by its coming at a unusual time, in wheat harvest, and on a clear day, but by the prophet's giving notice of it before. He showed their folly in desirin a king to save them, rather than God, or Samuel; promising themselve more from an arm of flesh, than from the arm of God, or from the powe of prayer. Could their prince command such forces as the prophet coul do by his prayers? It startled them very much. Some will not be brough to see their sins by any gentler methods than storms and thunders. The entreat Samuel to pray for them. Now they see their need of him who shortly before they slighted. Thus many who will not have Christ to reign over them, would yet be glad to have him intercede for them, to turn away the wrath of God. Samuel aims to confirm the people in their religion. Whatever we make a god of, we shall find it deceive us Creatures in their own places are good; but when put in God's place they are vain things. We sin if we restrain prayer, and in particula if we cease praying for the church. They only asked him to pray for them; but he promises to do more, to teach them. He urges that the were bound in gratitude to serve God, considering what great things he had done for them; and that they were bound in interest to serve him considering what he would do against them, if they should still d wickedly. Thus, as a faithful watchman, he gave them warning, and s delivered his own soul. If we consider what great things the Lord hat done for us, especially in the great work of redemption, we can neithe want motive, encouragement, nor assistance in serving him __________________________________________________________________
