SEV Biblia, Chapter 17:31 los heveos hicieron a Nibhaz y a Tartac; y los de Sefarvaim quemaban sus hijos con fuego a Adramelec y a Anamelec, dioses de Sefarvaim.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Kings 17:31 Verse 31. The Avites made Nibhaz] This was supposed to be the same as the Anubis of the Egyptians; and was in form partly of a dog, and partly of a man. A very ancient image of this kind now lies before me: it is cut out of stone, about seven inches high; has the body, legs, and arms, of a man; the head and feet of a dog; the thighs and legs covered with scales; the head crowned with a tiara; the arms crossed upon the breasts, with the fingers clenched. The figure stands upright, and the belly is very protuberant. See below.
And Tartak] This is supposed by some to be another name of the same idol; Jarchi says it was in the shape of an ass. Some think these were the representations of the sun in his chariot; Nibhaz representing the solar orb, and Tartak the chariot. See below.
Adrammelech] From rda adar, glorious, and űlm melech, king. Probably the sun.
Anammelech] From anah, to return, and űlm melech, king. Probably, the Moloch of the Ammonites. Jarchi says, the first was in the form of a mule, the second in the form of a horse; this was probably the moon.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 31. And the Avites made Nibhaz and Tartak , etc.] The former of which is represented by the Jews in the shape of a dog, deriving the word from “nabach”, to bark, as if it was the same with the Anubis Latrator of Virgil f221 , an Egyptian deity; though that is said to have its name from NO[b , which in the Egyptian language signifies “gold”, the statutes of it being made of gold; and the latter in the form of an ass, for what reason I cannot say; but the first word, according to Hillerus f223 , signifies, “the remote one seeth”, that is, the sun, which beholds all things; and Tartak is a chain, and may denote the fixed stars chained as it were in their places; or the satellites of the planets, chained to their orbs: and the Sepharvites burnt their children in fire to Adrammelech and to Anammelech the gods of Sepharvaim ; which were the same with Moloch; which may be concluded, partly from the worship paid them, and partly from the signification of their names; both end with “melech”, king, which Moloch also signifies; the first may be interpreted the mighty king, and the latter the king that answers in an oracular way; from the first, one of the sons of Sennacherib king of Assyria had his name, ( Isaiah 37:36), though the Jews, according to their fancy, represent the one in the likeness of a mule, and the other in the likeness of a horse; and some make the one to be a peacock, and the other a pheasant f224 ; the Septuagint version puts the article before them in the feminine gender, excepting the two last, taking them for she deities, or leaving the word eikona , “images”, to be understood.
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 __________________________________________________________________
