SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:18 Â¡Ay de los que desean el día del SEÑOR! Â¿Para qué queréis este día del SEÑOR? Será de tinieblas, y no de luz;
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Amos 5:18 Verse 18. Wo unto you that desire the day of the Lord] The prophet had often denounced the coming of God's day, that is, of a time of judgment; and the unbelievers had said, "Let his day come, that we may see it." Now the prophet tells them that that day would be to them darkness-calamity, and not light-not prosperity.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 18. Woe unto you that desire the day of the Lord , etc.] Either the day of Christ’s coming in the flesh, as Cocceius interprets it; and which was desired by the people of Israel, not on account of spiritual and eternal salvation, but that they might be delivered by him from outward troubles and enemies, and enjoy temporal felicity; they had a notion of him as a temporal Saviour and Redeemer, in whose days they should possess much outward happiness, and therefore desired his coming; (see Malachi 3:1,2); or else the day of the Lord’s judgments upon them, spoken of by the prophet, and which they were threatened with, but did not believe it would ever come; and therefore in a scoffing jeering manner, expressed their desire of it, to show their disbelief of it, and that they were in no pain or fear about it, like those in ( Isaiah 5:19); to what end [is] it for you ? why do you desire it? what benefit do you expect to get by it? the day of the Lord [is] darkness, and not light ; it will bring on affliction, calamities, miseries, and distress, which are often in Scripture expressed by “darkness”, and not prosperity and happiness, which are sometimes signified by “light”; (see Isaiah 5:30 8:22 Esther 8:16); and even the day of the coming of Christ were to the unbelieving Jews darkness, and not light; they were blinded in it, and given up to judicial blindness and darkness; they hating and rejecting the light of Christ, and his Gospel, and which issued in great calamities, in the utter ruin and destruction of that people, ( John 3:19,20 9:39).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 18-27 - Woe unto those that desire the day of the Lord's judgments, that wis for times of war and confusion; as some who long for changes, hoping to rise upon the ruins of their country! but this should be so great desolation, that nobody could gain by it. The day of the Lord will be dark, dismal, gloomy day to all impenitent sinners. When God makes day dark, all the world cannot make it light. Those who are no reformed by the judgments of God, will be pursued by them; if the escape one, another stands ready to seize them. A pretence of piety i double iniquity, and so it will be found. The people of Israel copie the crimes of their forefathers. The law of worshipping the Lord ou God, is, Him only we must serve. Professors thrive so little, becaus they have little or no communion with God in their duties. They wer led captive by Satan into idolatry, therefore God caused them to go into captivity among idolaters __________________________________________________________________
