    SEV Biblia, Chapter 11:15

    Y l se hizo sacerdotes para los altos, y para los demonios, y para los becerros que l había hecho.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Chronicles 11:15

    Verse 15. And he
    ordained him priests-for the devils] yry[ seirim, the hairy ones; probably goats: for as the golden calves, or oxen, were in imitation of the Egyptian ox-god, Apis; so they no doubt paid Divine honours to the goat, which we know was an object of religious veneration in Egypt.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 15. And he
    ordained him priests for the high places , etc.] Of such who were not of the tribe of Levi, and family of Aaron; (see 1 Kings 12:31) and for the devils ; demons in the shape of goats, as this word signifies, in which form many of the Heathen deities were worshipped; idols of whatsoever kind are so called; for whosoever worships them worships not God, but devils, ( 1 Corinthians 10:21) the images which Jeroboam set up may be meant, and the next clause may be rendered as explanative of them: even for the calves which he had made ; one of which he set up at Dan, and the other at Bethel, ( 1 Kings 12:28,29).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 13-23 - When the
    priests and Levites came to Jerusalem, the devout, piou Israelites followed them. Such as set their hearts to seek the Lord God of Israel, left the inheritance of their fathers, and went to Jerusalem, that they might have free access to the altar of God, and be out of the temptation to worship the calves. That is best for us, whic is best for our souls; in all our choices, religious advantages must be sought before all outward conveniences. Where God's faithful priest are, his faithful people should be. And when it has been proved that we are willing to renounce our worldly interests, so far as we are calle to do so for the sake of Christ and his gospel, we have good evidenc that we are truly his disciples. And it is the interest of a nation to protect religion and religious people __________________________________________________________________
