    SEV Biblia, Chapter 20:37

    Entonces hubo gran lloro de todos; y echndose en el cuello de Pablo, le besaban,

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Acts 20:37

    Verse 37. Fell on
    Paul's neck] Leaned their heads against his shoulders, and kissed his neck. This was not an unusual custom in the east.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 37. And they all wept sore , etc.] At the thoughts of parting with such a
    faithful and affectionate friend and servant of Christ; and no doubt but their affections were greatly moved by his prayers for them, as well as by his discourse to them. Christians are not Stoics, religion does not take away and destroy the natural affections, but regulates and governs them, and directs to a right use of them: and fell on Pauls neck and kissed him ; as Esau fell on Jacobs neck and kissed him, ( Genesis 33:4) and Joseph on his brother Benjamins, and his father Jacobs, ( Genesis 45:14, 46:29). And it was usual with the eastern nations, particularly the Persians f1044 , for friends and relations to kiss at parting, as well as at meeting; (see Ruth 1:9,14).

    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 __________________________________________________________________
