SEV Biblia, Chapter 17:7 Â¶ Porque como los hijos de Israel pecasen contra el SEÑOR su Dios, que los sacó de tierra de Egipto de bajo la mano de Faraón rey de Egipto, y temiesen a dioses ajenos,
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 7. For so it was, that the children of Israel had sinned against the Lord their God , etc.] By committing idolatry, which is the sin enlarged upon in the following discourse, as the cause of their being carried captive: which had brought them up out of the land of Egypt, from under the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt ; which is observed to show their ingratitude, and to aggravate their sin of idolatry: and had feared other gods ; which could do them neither good nor hurt, wherefore it must be great stupidity to fear them.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 7-23 - Though the destruction of the kingdom of the ten tribes was but briefl related, it is in these verses largely commented upon, and the reason of it given. It was destruction from the Almighty: the Assyrian was but the rod of his anger, Isa 10:5. Those that bring sin into a country of family, bring a plague into it, and will have to answer for all the mischief that follows. And vast as the outward wickedness of the worl is, the secret sins, evil thoughts, desires, and purposes of mankin are much greater. There are outward sins which are marked by infamy but ingratitude, neglect, and enmity to God, and the idolatry an impiety which proceed therefrom, are far more malignant. Withou turning from every evil way, and keeping God's statutes, there can be no true godliness; but this must spring from belief of his testimony as to wrath against all ungodliness and unrighteousness, and his merc in Christ Jesus.
