SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:12 Aquel día yo despertaré contra Elí todas las cosas que he dicho sobre su casa. Cuando comenzaré, también acabaré.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Samuel 3:12 Verse 12. I will perform-all things which I have spoken] That is, what He had declared by the prophet, whose message is related 1 Sam. ii. 27, &c.
When I begin, I will also make an end.] I will not delay the execution of my purpose: when I begin, nothing shall deter me from bringing all my judgments to a conclusion.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 12. In that day I will perform against Eli all things which I have spoken concerning his house , etc.] Or family, that is, by the man of God, ( 1 Samuel 2:27) as that he would cut off the strength of it, that there should not be an old man in it; and such as remained should be reduced to the utmost poverty and meanness; this shows that that prophecy was antecedent to this, contrary to the sense of some: when I begin, I will also make an end ; not immediately, and at once, but by degrees; he began in the death of Hophni and Phinehas, and went on in the slaughter of Abimelech, and the eighty five priests at Nob, in the times of Saul, and finished in the thrusting out of Abiathar from the priesthood, in the times of Solomon, whereby that family was brought to disgrace and poverty.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 11-18 - What a great deal of guilt and corruption is there in us, concernin which we may say, It is the iniquity which our own heart knoweth; we are conscious to ourselves of it! Those who do not restrain the sins of others, when it is in their power to do it, make themselves partaker of the guilt, and will be charged as joining in it. In his remarkabl answer to this awful sentence, Eli acknowledged that the Lord had right to do as he saw good, being assured that he would do nothin wrong. The meekness, patience, and humility contained in those words show that he was truly repentant; he accepted the punishment of his sin.
