SEV Biblia, Chapter 25:13 Pero los del escuadrón que Amasías había despedido, para que no fuesen con él a la guerra, se derramaron sobre las ciudades de Judá, desde Samaria hasta Bet-horón, e hirieron de ellos tres mil, y tomaron un grande despojo.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 13. But the soldiers of the army which Amaziah sent back, that they should not go with him to battle , &e.] The 100,000 men hired out of Israel, whom he dismissed before he went against Edom: fell upon the cities of Judah, from Samaria even unto Bethhoron ; which, though it formerly belonged to Ephraim, had been taken by the men of Judah; they did not fall on these as they returned home, for then it would have been said from Bethhoron to Samaria: but after they had returned home, they meditated this piece of revenge for the ill treatment of them, as they reckoned it: and smote three thousand of them ; of the inhabitants of the cities, who rose up and opposed them: and took much spoil ; out of them, and went their way with it.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-13 - Amaziah was no enemy to religion, but cool and indifferent friend. Man do what is good, but not with a perfect heart. Rashness makes work for repentance. But Amaziah's obedience to the command of God was to his honour. A firm belief of God's all-sufficiency to bear us out in ou duty, and to make up all the loss and damage was sustain in his service, will make his yoke very easy, and his burden very light. When we are called to part with any thing for God and our religion, i should satisfy us, that God is able to give us much more than this Convinced sinners, who have not true faith, always object to self-denying obedience. They are like Amaziah; they say, But what shal we do for the hundred talents? What shall we do if by keeping the sabbath holy we lose so many good customers? What shall we do withou this gain? What shall we do if we lose the friendship of the world Many endeavour to quiet their consciences by the pretence tha forbidden practices are necessary. The answer is, as here, The Lord i able to give thee much more than this. He makes up, even in this world for all that is given up for his sake.
