    SEV Biblia, Chapter 20:29

    Porque yo s que despus de mi partida entrarn en medio de vosotros lobos rapaces, que no perdonarn al rebao;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Acts 20:29

    Verse 29. After my departing] Referring, most likely, to his
    death; for few of these evils took place during his life.

    Grievous wolves] Persons professing to be teachers; Judaizing Christians, who, instead of feeding the flock, would feed themselves, even to the oppression and ruin of the Church.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 29. For I know this , etc.] By divine revelation: that after my departing ; either out of this world, or after his leaving them now, and proceeding on, his journey: shall grievous wolves enter in among you ; false teachers, comparable to wolves, for their craft and cunning, and for their greedy, covetous, and voracious dispositions; and who would be very grievous, troublesome, and even intolerable to them; these, he knew, would enter privily, at an unawares, into their churches, and set up themselves for preachers, without being called or sent: not sparing the flock ; fleecing it instead of feeding it, making merchandise of it, and like the Pharisees, under religious pretences, devour widows houses, and drain the purses of men; and having as little compassion upon their souls, poisoning them with their errors and heresies, subverting their faith, and bringing them into swift ruin and destruction, as much as would in them lie.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 28-38 - If the Holy
    Ghost has made ministers overseers of the flock, that is shepherds, they must be true to their trust. Let them consider their Master's concern for the flock committed to their charge. It is the church He has purchased with his own blood. The blood was his as Man yet so close is the union between the Divine and human nature, that it is there called the blood of God, for it was the blood of Him who is God. This put such dignity and worth into it, as to ransom believer from all evil, and purchase all good. Paul spake about their souls with affection and concern. They were full of care what would become of them. Paul directs them to look up to God with faith, and commends the to the word of God's grace, not only as the foundation of their hop and the fountain of their joy, but as the rule of their walking. The most advanced Christians are capable of growing, and will find the wor of grace help their growth. As those cannot be welcome guests to the holy God who are unsanctified; so heaven would be no heaven to them but to all who are born again, and on whom the image of God is renewed it is sure, as almighty power and eternal truth make it so. He recommends himself to them as an example of not caring as to things of the present world; this they would find help forward their comfortabl passage through it. It might seem a hard saying, therefore Paul adds to it a saying of their Master's, which he would have them alway remember; "It is more blessed to give than to receive:" it seems the were words often used to his disciples. The opinion of the children of this world, is contrary to this; they are afraid of giving, unless in hope of getting. Clear gain, is with them the most blessed thing tha can be; but Christ tell us what is more blessed, more excellent. I makes us more like to God, who gives to all, and receives from none and to the Lord Jesus, who went about doing good. This mind was in Christ Jesus, may it be in us also. It is good for friends, when the part, to part with prayer. Those who exhort and pray for one another may have many weeping seasons and painful separations, but they wil meet before the throne of God, to part no more. It was a comfort to all, that the presence of Christ both went with him and stayed with them __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    29. Grievous (bareiv). Lit.,
    heavy: violent, rapacious.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    20:29 {After my departing} (meta ten afixin mou). Not his
    death, but his departure from them. From afikneomai and usually meant arrival, but departure in Herodotus IX. 17, 76 as here. {Grievous wolves} (lukoi bareis). bareis is heavy, rapacious, harsh. Jesus had already so described false teachers who would raven the fold (#Joh 10:12). Whether Paul had in mind the Judaizers who had given him so much trouble in Antioch, Jerusalem, Galatia, Corinth or the Gnostics the shadow of whose coming he already foresaw is not perfectly clear. But it will not be many years before Epaphras will come to Rome from Colossae with news of the new peril there (epistle to the Colossians). In writing to Timothy (#1Ti 1:20) Paul will warn him against some who have already made shipwreck of their faith. In #Re 2:2 John will represent Jesus as describing false apostles in Ephesus. {Not sparing the flock} (me feidomenoi tou poimniou). Litotes again as so often in Acts. Sparing the flock was not the fashion of wolves. Jesus sent the seventy as lambs in the midst of wolves (#Lu 10:3). In the Sermon on the Mount Jesus had pictured the false prophets who would come as ravening wolves in sheep's clothing (#Mt 7:15).
