SEV Biblia, Chapter 14:10 Ciertamente has herido a Edom, y tu corazón te ha envanecido; gloríate pues , mas estáte en tu casa. Â¿Para qué te entremeterás en un mal, para que caigas tú, y Judá contigo?
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Kings 14:10 Verse 10. Glory of this, and tarry at home] There is a vast deal of insolent dignity in this remonstrance of Jehoash: but it has nothing conciliatory; no proposal of making amends for the injury his army had done to the unoffending inhabitants of Judah. The ravages committed by the army of Jehoash were totally unprovoked, and they were base and cowardly; they fell upon women, old men, and children, and butchered them in cold blood, for all the effective men were gone off with their king against the Edomites.
The quarrel of Amaziah was certainly just, yet he was put to the rout; he did meddle to his hurt; he fell, and Judah fell with him, as Jehoash had said: but why was this? Why it came of God; for he had brought the gods of Seir, and set them up to be his gods, and bowed down himself before them, and burnt incense to them; therefore God delivered them into the hands of their enemies, because they sought after the gods of Edom, 2 Chron. xxv. 14, 20. This was the reason why the Israelites triumphed.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 10. Thou hast indeed smitten Edom, and thine heart hath lifted thee up , etc.] Swelled him with pride and vanity on account of the victory he had obtained over the Edomites; which pride was at the bottom of his message to him, and that goes before a fall: ( Proverbs 16:18) glory of this, and tarry at home ; be content with the glory of it, and boast of it at home, but do not swagger abroad, and insult thy neighbours: for why shouldest thou meddle to thy hurt, that thou shouldest fall, even thou, and Judah with thee ? suggesting to him, that he had better be quiet, since it would be to the harm, if not the ruin, of him and his kingdom.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 8-14 - For some time after the division of the kingdoms, Judah suffered muc from the enmity of Israel. After Asa's time, it suffered more by the friendship of Israel, and by the alliance made with them. Now we mee with hostility between them again. How may a humble man smile to hea two proud and scornful men set their wits on work, to vilify an undervalue one another! Unholy success excites pride; pride excite contentions. The effects of pride in others, are insufferable to thos who are proud themselves. These are the sources of trouble and sin in private life; but when they arise between princes, they become the misery of their whole kingdoms. Jehoash shows Amaziah the folly of his challenge; Thine heart has lifted thee up. The root of all sin is in the heart, thence it flows. It is not Providence, the event, the occasion, whatever it is, that makes men proud, secure, discontented or the like, but their own hearts do it. (2Ki 14:15-22)
