SEV Biblia, Chapter 17:16 Solamente que no se aumente caballos, ni haga volver el pueblo a Egipto para aumentar caballos; porque el SEÑOR os ha dicho: No procuraréis de volver más por este camino.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Deuteronomy 17:16 Verse 16. He shall not multiply horses] As horses appear to have been generally furnished by Egypt, God prohibits these, 1. Lest there should be such commerce with Egypt as might lead to idolatry. 2. Lest the people might depend on a well- appointed cavalry as a means of security, and so cease from trusting in the strength and protection of God. And, 3. That they might not be tempted to extend their dominion by means of cavalry, and so get scattered among the surrounding idolatrous nations, and thus cease, in process of time, to be that distinct and separate people which God intended they should be, and without which the prophecies relative to the Messiah could not be known to have their due and full accomplishment.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 16. But he shall not multiply horses to himself , etc.] That he might not put his trust and confidence in outward things, as some are apt to trust in horses and chariots; and that he might not tyrannise over and distress his subjects by keeping a number of horses and chariots as a standing army, and chiefly for a reason that follows; he was to have no more than for his own chariot, so Jarchi, and so the Misnah and Maimonides f196 ; the Targum of Jonathan restrains it to two: nor cause the people to return to Egypt, to the end that he should multiply horses ; which was a country that abounded with them, and therefore he was not to encourage, and much less oblige his subjects to travel thither or trade with that people for the sake of increasing his stock of horses, ( Isaiah 31:1,3) forasmuch as the Lord hath said unto you, ye shall henceforth return no more that way ; not that going into Egypt on any account whatsoever was forbidden, as for trade and merchandise in other things, or for shelter and safety, for which some good men fled thither; but for outward help and assistance against enemies, and for horses on that account, and particularly in order to dwell there, from which the Jews in the times of Jeremiah were dissuaded by him, and threatened by the Lord with destruction, in case they should, ( Jeremiah 42:15-22). When the Lord said this is not certain; it may be when they proposed to make a captain, and return unto Egypt; or he said this in his providence, this was the language of it ever since they came out of it, or however this he now said; (see Deuteronomy 28:68).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 14-20 - God himself was in a particular manner Israel's King; and if they se another over them, it was necessary that he should choose the person Accordingly, when the people desired a king, they applied to Samuel, prophet of the Lord. In all cases, God's choice, if we can but know it should direct, determine, and overrule ours. Laws are given for the prince that should be elected. He must carefully avoid every thing tha would turn him from God and religion. Riches, honours, and pleasures are three great hinderances of godliness, (the lusts of the flesh, the lusts of the eye, and the pride of life,) especially to those in hig stations; against these the king is here warned. The king mus carefully study the law of God, and make that his rule; and having copy of the Scriptures of his own writing, must read therein all the days of his life. It is not enough to have Bibles, but we must us them, use them daily, as long as we live. Christ's scholars never lear above their Bibles, but will have constant occasion for them, till the come to that world where knowledge and love will be made perfect. The king's writing and reading were as nothing, if he did not practise what he wrote and read. And those who fear God and keep his commandments will fare the better for it even in this world __________________________________________________________________
