    SEV Biblia, Chapter 9:12

    para que aquellos sobre los cuales es llamado mi nombre, posean el resto de Idumea, y a todos los gentiles, dijo el SEŃOR que hace esto.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Amos 9:12

    Verse 12. That they may possess the
    remnant of Edom] Bp. Newcome translates this clause as follows: "That the residue of men may seek Jehovah, and all the heathen who are called by my name." Here, instead of µwda Edom, he reads µda Adam, men or mankind, which is the reading of the Arabic, and some MSS. of the Syriac, and of Acts xv. 17.

    The Pachomian MS. of the Septuagint adds here, opwv ekzhthswsi me, that they may seek me. And the Arabic has the Lord; and in stead of wŤryy yireshu, "they shall possess," the learned bishop seems to have read wŤrdy yidreshu, "they may seek;" and thus the text resembles the quotation by St. James, Acts xv. 17, "That the residue of men might seek after the Lord." It is strange that not one of the MSS. collated by Kennicott and De Rossi, nor any of my own, favours or countenances any of these alterations. I am of opinion, therefore, that we must dismiss all these conjectural emendations, and take the Hebrew text as we find it.

    That it speaks of the conversion of the Jews in Gospel times, we have the authority of the New Testament as above to prove; and it we cannot make the words, as they stand there. entirely to agree with the words here, the subject is not affected by it. The Jews shall be converted and restored, and this text in both covenants is a proof of it.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 12. That they may possess the remnant or Edom, and of all the Heathen, which are called by my name , etc.] Or that these may be possessed; that is, by David or Christ, who shall have the Heathen given him for his inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for his possession, ( Psalm 2:8); when the remnant, according to the election of grace, in those nations that have been the greatest enemies to Christ and his Gospel, signified by Edom, shall be converted, and call upon the name of the Lord, and worship him; and be called by his name, Christians, and so become his inheritance and possession. The Targum understands, by the Heathen or people, all the people of the house of Israel; and Kimchi, Aben Ezra, and Ben Melech, think the words are to be inverted, thus, “that all the people on whom my name is called, nay possess the remnant of Edom;” and the forager says, that all the Edomites shall be destroyed in the days of the Messiah, but Israel shall inherit their land; and Aben Ezra says, that if this prophecy is interpreted of the Messiah, the matter is clear; as it is in the sense we have given, and as the apostle explains it; (see Gill on “ Acts 15:17”). Some render the words, “that the remnant of Edom, and of all the Heathen, that are” (that is, shall be) “called by my name, may possess me the Lord” f262 . The truth and certainty of its performance is expressed in the following clause, saith the Lord, that doeth this : whose word is true, whose power is great, whose grace is efficacious, to accomplish all that is here promised and foretold.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 11-15 -
    Christ died to gather together the children of God that were scattere abroad, here said to be those who were called by his name. The Lor saith this, who doeth this, who can do it, who has determined to do it the power of whose grace is engaged for doing it. Verses #(13-15) ma refer to the early times of Christianity, but will receive a mor glorious fulfilment in the events which all the prophets more or les foretold, and may be understood of the happy state when the fulnes both of the Jews and the Gentiles come into the church. Let us continu earnest in prayer for the fulfilment of these prophecies, in the peace purity, and the beauty of the church. God marvellously preserves his elect amidst the most fearful confusions and miseries. When all seem desperate, he wonderfully revives his church, and blesses her with all spiritual blessings in Christ Jesus. And great shall be the glory of that period, in which not one good thing promised shall remai unfulfilled __________________________________________________________________
