    SEV Biblia, Chapter 17:25

    Y aconteció al principio, cuando comenzaron a habitar allí, que no temiendo ellos al SEÑOR, envió el SEÑOR contra ellos leones que los mataban.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Kings 17:25

    Verse 25. The
    Lord sent lions among them] The land being deprived of its inhabitants, wild beasts would necessarily increase, even without any supernatural intervention; and this the superstitious new comers supposed to be a plague sent upon them, because they did not know how to worship him who was the God of the land; for they thought, like other heathens that every district had its own tutelary deity. Yet it is likely that God did send lions as a scourge on this bad people.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 25. And so it was at the beginning of their dwelling there, that they
    feared not the Lord , etc.] Did not serve him in any manner, but their idols only, which they brought with them; whereas it was usual with Heathens to serve the gods of the country, as they reputed them, where they came, along with their own; but even this those men did not do: therefore the Lord sent lions among them ; even into their cities, into which lions sometimes came f206 , especially when old, out of the thickets of Jordan and other places where they haunted, (see Jeremiah 49:19) which slew some of them ; this the Lord did to assert his sovereignty, authority, and mighty power, and to let them know that he could as easily clear the land of them, as they, by his permission, had cleared the land of the Israelites, Josephus calls this a plague that was sent among them.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 24-41 - The
    terror of the Almighty will sometimes produce a forced or feigne submission in unconverted men; like those brought from differen countries to inhabit Israel. But such will form unworthy thoughts of God, will expect to please him by outward forms, and will vainly try to reconcile his service with the love of the world and the indulgence of their lusts. May that fear of the Lord, which is the beginning of wisdom, possess our hearts, and influence our conduct, that we may be ready for every change. Wordly settlements are uncertain; we know no whither we may be driven before we die, and we must soon leave the world; but the righteous hath chosen that good part which shall not be taken from him __________________________________________________________________
