SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:5 y no busquéis a Bet-el ni entréis en Gilgal, ni paséis a Beerseba; porque Gilgal será llevada en cautiverio, y Bet-el será deshecha.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Amos 5:5 Verse 5. But seek not Beth-el] There was one of Jeroboam's golden calves, and at Gilgal were carved images; both were places in which idolatry was triumphant. The prophet shows them that all hope from those quarters is utterly vain; for Gilgal shall go into captivity, and Beth-el be brought to naught. There is a play or paronomasia on the letters and words in this clause: wal hyhy la tybw hlgy hlg lglgh haggilgal galoh yigleh, ubeith el yiheyeh leaven. "This Gilgal shall go captive into captivity; and Beth-el (the house of God) shall be for Beth-aven," (the house of iniquity.)
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 5. But seek not Bethel , etc.] Do not go to Bethel, the place where one of Jeroboam’s calves was set up and worshipped, to consult the oracle, idols, and priests there; or to perform religious worship, which will be your ruin, if not prevented by another course of living: nor enter into Gilgal ; another place of idolatry, where idols were set up and worshipped (see Gill on “ Amos 4:4”); and pass not to Beersheba ; a place in the further part of the land of Israel; it formerly belonged to Judah, but was now in the hands of the ten tribes, and where idolatrous worship was practised; (see Amos 8:14); it having been a place where Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, had dwelt, and worshipped the true God: for Gilgal shall surely go into captivity ; that is, the inhabitants of it; they will not be able with their idols and idol worship to save themselves, and therefore go not thither. There is an elegant play on words here f122 , as there is also in the next words: and Bethel shall come to nought ; which also was called Bethaven, the house of vanity, or of an idol which is nothing in the world; and therefore, because of the idolatry in it, should come to nothing, be utterly destroyed, and the inhabitants of it. So the Targum, “they, that are in Gilgal, and worship calves in Bethel.”
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-6 - The convincing, awakening word must be heard and heeded, as well a words of comfort and peace; for whether we hear or forbear, the word of God shall take effect. The Lord still proclaims mercy to men, but the often expect deliverance from such self-invented forms as make their condemnation sure. While they refuse to come to Christ and to see mercy in and by him, that they may live, the fire of Divine wrat breaks forth upon them. Men may make an idol of the world, but wil find it cannot protect.
