    SEV Biblia, Chapter 12:24

    Mas la Palabra del Seor crecía y era multiplicada.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Acts 12:24

    Verse 24. But the word of
    God] The Christian doctrine preached by the apostles grew and multiplied-became more evident, and had daily accessions; for the spirit of revelation rested on those men, and God was daily adding to that word as circumstances required, in order to complete that testimony of his which we now find contained in the New Testament.

    As there is in the original an allusion to the vegetation of grain, (huxane, it grew, as corn grows, the stalk and the ear; kai eplhquneto, it was multiplied, as the corn is in the full ear,) there is probably a reference to the parable of the SOWER and his seed; for the seed is the word of God, and the doctrine of the kingdom. It was liberally sown; it grew vigorously, and became greatly multiplied. And why? Because it was the word, the doctrine of God-there was no corruption in it; and because God watered it with the dew of heaven from on high.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 24. But the word of God grew and multiplied .] The number of those who were converted by it, and embraced and professed it, increased; otherwise the word is the same, whether the professors of it be more or fewer; and this it did, notwithstanding the persecution raised against it by Herod whilst he was living; and after his death, it still gained more ground, met with less opposition, and was more freely professed.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 20-25 - Many
    heathen princes claimed and received Divine honours, but it wa far more horrible impiety in Herod, who knew the word and worship of the living God, to accept such idolatrous honours without rebuking the blasphemy. And such men as Herod, when puffed with pride and vanity are ripening fast for signal vengeance. God is very jealous for his ow honour, and will be glorified upon those whom he is not glorified by See what vile bodies we carry about with us; they have in them the seeds of their own dissolution, by which they will soon be destroyed whenever God does but speak the word. We may learn wisdom from the people of Tyre and Sidon, for we have offended the Lord with our sins We depend on him for life, and breath, and all things; it surely the behoves us to humble ourselves before him, that through the appointe Mediator, who is ever ready to befriend us, we may be reconciled to him, lest wrath come upon us to the utmost __________________________________________________________________
