SEV Biblia, Chapter 17:20 Para que no se eleve su corazón sobre sus hermanos, ni se aparte del mandamiento a diestra ni a siniestra; para que tenga largos días en su reino, él y sus hijos, en medio de Israel.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Deuteronomy 17:20 Verse 20. He, and his children, in the midst of Israel.] From this verse it has been inferred that the crown of Israel was designed to be hereditary, and this is very probable; for long experience has proved to almost all the nations of the world that hereditary succession in the regal government is, on the whole, the safest, and best calculated to secure the public tranquillity.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 20. That his heart be not lifted up above his brethren , etc.] On account of his office, the dignity of it, considering that he was subject to the law of God, and accountable to the Lord for all his actions: and that he turn not aside from the commandment, to the right hand or to the left ; not in the least deviate from the law of God in the whole of his conduct, and particularly in the exercise of his kingly office: to the end that he may prolong his days in his kingdom ; ruling well according to the laws of God being the way to rule long: he and his children in the midst of Israel ; this shows, as Jarchi observes, that if his son was fit for the kingdom, he was to be preferred to any other man; for though it was elective, yet to be continued in the same family, provided they walked in the ways of the Lord, and observed his laws.
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 __________________________________________________________________
