SEV Biblia, Chapter 23:17 No habrá ramera de las hijas de Israel, ni habrá sodomita de los hijos de Israel.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Deuteronomy 23:17 Verse 17. There shall be no whore] See on Gen. xxxviii. 15- 21.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 17. There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel , etc.] The word for “whore” is “kedeshah”, which properly signifies an “holy” one; and here, by an antiphrasis, an unholy, an impure person, one that is defiled by man; (see Gill on “ Genesis 38:18”). Jarchi interprets the word, one that makes herself common, that is sanctified, or set apart; that is, one that separates herself for such service, and prostitutes herself to everyone that passes by: but some understand this not of common harlots in the streets, but of sacred whores, or such as were consecrated to Heathen deities, as such there were to Venus. Strabo tells us that the temple of Venus at Corinth was so rich, that more than a thousand of those sacred harlots were kept, whom men and women had devoted to that goddess; and so a multitude of the same sort were at Comana, which he calls little Corinth f398 ; now these of all harlots being the most abominable are forbidden to be among the daughters of Israel: nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel : by the same rule that “kedeshah” is rendered “a whore” in the preceding clause, “kadesh” should be rendered “an whoremonger” here, as in the Septuagint and Vulgate Latin versions; though Aben Ezra interprets it passively, one that is lain with, and Jarchi one that is prepared to lie with a male, that prostitutes his body in this unnatural way; and it looks as if there were such sort of persons sacred to idols, since we read of the houses of the sodomites, which were by, or rather in the house of the Lord, ( 2 Kings 23:7).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 15-25 - It is honourable to shelter and protect the weak, provided they are no wicked. Proselytes and converts to the truth, should be treated with particular tenderness, that they may have no temptation to return to the world. We cannot honour God with our substance, unless it be honestly and honourably come by. It must not only be considered what we give, but how we got it. Where the borrower gets, or hopes to get, it is just that the lender should share the gain; but to him that borrow for necessary food, pity must be showed. That which is gone out of the lips, as a solemn and deliberate vow, must not be recalled, but tho shalt keep and perform it punctually and fully. They were allowed to pluck and eat of the corn or grapes that grew by the road side; onl they must not carry any away. This law intimated what great plenty of corn and wine they should have in Canaan. It provided for the suppor of poor travellers, and teaches us to be kind to such, teaches us to be ready to distribute, and not to think every thing lost that is give away. Yet it forbids us to abuse the kindness of friends, or to tak advantage of what is allowed. Faithfulness to their engagements shoul mark the people of God; and they should never encroach upon others __________________________________________________________________
