    Ho 4:15 Zep 1:5

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:14

    Los que juran por el pecado de Samaria, y dicen: Vive tu Dios de Dan; y: Vive el camino de Beerseba, caerán, y nunca más se levantarán.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Amos 8:14

    Verse 14. By the
    sin of Samaria] Baal, who was worshipped here.

    Thy god, O Dan] The golden calf, or ox, the representative of the Egyptian god Apis, or Osiris.

    The manner of Beer-sheba] The worship, or object of worship. Another of the golden calves which Jeroboam had set up there. The word űrd derech, way, is here taken for the object and mode of worship; see Acts xix. 9, where way is taken for the creed and form of Divine worship as practiced by the followers of Christ, and by which they were distinguished from the Jews. See also Acts ix. 2.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 14. They that swear by the sin of Samaria , etc.] The calf at Bethel, which was near Samaria, and which the Samaritans worshipped; and was set up by their kings, and the worship of it encouraged by their example, and which is called the calf of Samaria, ( Hosea 8:5,6); the making of it was the effect of sin, and the occasion of leading into it, and ought to have been had in detestation and abhorrence, as sin should; and yet by this the Israelites swore, as they had used to do by the living God; so setting up this idol on an equality with him: and say, thy God, O Dan, liveth ; the other calf, which was set up in Dan; and to this they gave the epithet of the bring God, which only belonged to the God of Israel: and the manner of Beersheba liveth ; or, “the way of Beersheba” f233 ; the long journey or pilgrimage of those at Beersheba; who chose to go to Dan, rather than Bethel, to worship; imagining they showed greater devotion and religion, by going from one extreme part of the land to the other, for the sake of it. Daniel was on the northern border of the land of Judea, about four miles from Paneas, as you go to Tyre f234 ; and Beersheba was on the southern border of the land, twenty miles from Hebron f235 ; and the distance of these two places was about one hundred and sixty miles f236 .

    And by this religious peregrination men swore; or rather by the God of Beersheba, as the Septuagint render it; though the phrase may only intend the religion of Beersheba, the manner of worship there, it being a place where idolatry was practised; (see Amos 5:5). The Targum is, “the fear (that is, the deity) which is in Daniel liveth, and firm are the laws of Beersheba;” even they shall fall, and never rise up again ; that is, these idolatrous persons, that swear by the idols in the above places, shall fall into calamity, ruin, and destruction, by and for their sins, and never recover out of it; which was fulfilled in the captivity of the ten tribes, from whence they have never returned to this day.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 11-14 - Here was a token of God's highest displeasure. At any time, and most in a time of trouble, a famine of the word of God is the heavies judgment. To many this is no affliction, yet some will feel it very much, and will travel far to hear a good sermon; they feel the loss of the mercies others foolishly sin away. But when God visits backsliding church, their own plans and endeavours to find out a way of salvation, will stand them in no stead. And the most amiable an zealous would perish, for want of the water of life, which Christ onl can bestow. Let us value our advantages, seek to profit by them, an fear sinning them away __________________________________________________________________
