    SEV Biblia, Chapter 13:40

    Mirad, pues, que no venga sobre vosotros lo que est dicho en los profetas:

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Acts 13:40

    Verse 40. Beware-lest that come upon you, &c.] If you
    reject these benefits, now freely offered to you in this preaching of Christ crucified, you may expect such judgment from the hand of God as your forefathers experienced, when, for their rebellion and their contempt of his benefits, their city was taken, their temple destroyed, and themselves either slain by the sword, or carried into captivity. It is evident that St. Paul refers to Hab. i. 5-10; and in those verses the desolation by the Chaldeans is foretold. Never was there a prophecy more correctly and pointedly applied. These Jews did continue to slight the benefits offered to them by the Lord; and they persevered in their rebellion: what was the consequence? The Romans came, took their city, burnt their temple, slew upwards of a million of them, and either carried or sold the rest into captivity. How exactly was the prophecy in both cases fulfilled!

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 40.
    Beware therefore , etc.] Of rejecting the Gospel, and those excellent truths of it; since forgiveness of sin and a justifying righteousness are said to be had in no other way, but in and through Christ; take heed therefore, lest that come upon you, which is spoken of in the Prophets : some think that the apostle refers to two places in the Prophets, which he puts together, and therefore uses the plural number; the one in ( Isaiah 28:14) from whence the character of the persons is taken, ye despisers, or scornful men, who are addressed; and the other in ( Habakkuk 1:5) where is to be found what is said to them; but rather the latter place is what is only referred to, and is said to be, in the Prophets, that is, in one of the prophets; (See Gill on John 6:45) or in the book of the Prophets, the lesser prophets, which were together in one book, among which Habakkuk stands; the Ethiopic version reads in the singular number, lest should come upon you the word of the prophet, saying, as follows.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 38-41 - Let all that hear the
    gospel of Christ, know these two things: 1. Tha through this Man, who died and rose again, is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins. Your sins, though many and great, may be forgiven and they may be so without any injury to God's honour. 2. It is by Christ only that those who believe in him, and none else, are justifie from all things; from all the guilt and stain of sin, from which the could not be justified by the law of Moses. The great concern of convinced sinners is, to be justified, to be acquitted from all their guilt, and accepted as righteous in God's sight, for if any is lef charged upon the sinner, he is undone. By Jesus Christ we obtain complete justification; for by him a complete atonement was made for sin. We are justified, not only by him as our Judge but by him as the Lord our Righteousness. What the law could not do for us, in that is was weak, the gospel of Christ does. This is the most needful blessing bringing in every other. The threatenings are warnings; what we ar told will come upon impenitent sinners, is designed to awaken us to beware lest it come upon us. It ruins many, that they despise religion Those that will not wonder and be saved, shall wonder and perish.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    13:40 {
    Beware therefore} (blepete oun). The warning is pertinent. Perhaps Paul noticed anger on the faces of some of the rabbis. {Lest there come upon you} (me epelqei). Second aorist active subjunctive with the negative final conjunction me. {In the prophets} (en tois profetais). The quotation is from the LXX text of #Hab 1:5. The plural here refers to the prophetic collection (#Lu 24:44; Ac 24:14). "The Jews of Habakkuk's day had refused to believe in the impending invasion by the Chaldeans, and yet it had come" (Furneaux).
