SEV Biblia, Chapter 17:11 Según la ley, que ellos te enseñaren, y según el juicio que te dijeren, harás: no te apartarás ni a diestra ni a siniestra de la palabra que te enseñaren.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 11. According to the sentence of the law which they shall teach thee , etc.] For they were not to make any new law, but to teach the law of God, and so far as their sense and opinion of things agreed with that law they were to be regarded: and according to the judgment which they shall tell thee, thou shalt do ; what were law and justice, what were fit and right to be done, according to the will of God, which they should declare unto them, that was carefully to be done by them: thou shalt not decline from the sentence they shall show thee, to the right hand nor to the left ; by setting up after, all their own judgments against theirs to whom they had applied for information and direction, which to have done would have been very insolent and affronting; they were not to depart from the determination they made of the case, on pretence of knowing better, nor even in any minute circumstance to deviate from it, but strictly and closely to keep unto it; though not to follow them so implicitly as to receive from them and embrace things the most absurd and unreasonable, as Jarchi suggests; who says, that their sense was to be abided by, even if they should say that the right hand is the left, and the left hand the right.
Ver. 12 And the man that will do presumptuously , etc.] The judge of the country court that makes his application to that at Jerusalem for information and direction; if, after all, he is conceited in his own opinion, and rejects theirs, and is obstinate, and will not be guided and directed, but will take his own way, and pursue his own sense of things, and act according to that: and will not hearken to the priest that standeth to minister there before the Lord thy God ; the priests of the tribe of Levi, of whom the court generally consisted, ( Deuteronomy 17:9), priest for priests; though some think the high priest is meant, to whom the character very well agrees; but he was not always at the head of the sanhedrim, nor indeed a member of it, unless he had the proper qualifications; (see Deuteronomy 18:18) or unto the judge ; or judges; (see Gill on “ Deuteronomy 17:9”).
L’Empereur thinks, that the supreme senate, or grand sanhedrim, was twofold, according to the diversity of ecclesiastic and political matters; since where it treats of the supreme senators, or chief persons in the court, the priest is manifestly distinguished from the judge (i.e. priests or judges); now the man that has asked advice of them, and will not be directed by it, but takes his own way, this being so great a contempt of, and insult upon, the great senate of the nation: even that man shall die ; and this was by strangling, for so the rebellious older, as such an one is called, was to die according to the Misnah f192 ; and it is said f193 , that the death spoken of in the law absolutely (without specifying what kind of death) is strangling: and thou shall put away the evil from Israel ; the evil man that is rebellious against the supreme legislature of the nation, and the evil of contumacy he is guilty of, deterring others from it by his death.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 8-13 - Courts of judgment were to be set up in every city. Though their judgment had not the Divine authority of an oracle, it was the judgmen of wise, prudent, experienced men, and had the advantage of a Divin promise.
