SEV Biblia, Chapter 22:11 Â¶ Y cuando el rey oyó las palabras del libro de la ley, rasgó sus vestidos.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 11. And it came to pass, when the king had heard the words of the book of the law , etc.] From whence it appears that he had never wrote out a copy of it, as the kings of Israel were ordered to do, when they came to the throne, ( Deuteronomy 17:18,19) nor had read it, at least not the whole of it; and yet it seems strange that he should be twenty six years of age, as he now was, and had proceeded far in the reformation of worship, and yet be without the book of the law, and the high priest also; it looks as if it was, as some have thought, that they had till now only some abstracts of the law, and not the whole: and perhaps the reformation hitherto carried on chiefly lay in abolishing idolatry, and not so much in restoring the ordinances of worship to their purity; for it was after this that the ordinance of the passover was ordered to be kept; and when the king observed, on hearing the law read, that it had not been kept as it should, that such severe threatenings were denounced against the transgressors of it; that he rent his clothes ; as expressive of the rending of his heart, and of his humiliation and sorrow for the sins he and his people were guilty of.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 11-20 - The book of the law is read before the king. Those best honour their Bibles, who study them; daily feed on that bread, and walk by tha light. Convictions of sin and wrath should put us upon this inquiry What shall we do to be saved? Also, what we may expect, and mus provide for. Those who are truly apprehensive of the weight of God' wrath, cannot but be very anxious how they may be saved. Huldah le Josiah know what judgments God had in store for Judah and Jerusalem The generality of the people were hardened, and their hearts unhumbled but Josiah's heart was tender. This is tenderness of heart, and thus he humbled himself before the Lord. Those who most fear God's wrath, ar least likely to feel it. Though Josiah was mortally wounded in battle yet he died in peace with God, and went to glory. Whatever such person suffer or witness, they are gathered to the grave in peace, and shal enter into the rest which remaineth for the people of God __________________________________________________________________
