SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:14 No andaréis en pos de dioses ajenos, de los dioses de los pueblos que están en vuestros contornos;
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Deuteronomy 6:14 Verse 14. Ye shall not go after other gods] The object of religious worship among every people, whether that object be true or false, is ever considered as the pattern or exemplar to his worshippers. Christians are termed the followers of God; they take God for their pattern, and walk-act, as he does. Hence we see the meaning of the terms in this verse: Ye shall not go after-ye shall not take false gods for your patterns. The Canaanites, Greeks, Romans, &c., were a most impure people, because the objects of their worship were impure, and they went after them, i. e., were like their gods. This serves to show us that such as our Redeemer is, such should we be; and indeed this is the uniform language of God to man: Be ye holy, for I am holy, Lev. xxi. 8; Be ye perfect, as your Father who is in heaven is perfect, Matt. v. 48.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 14. Ye shall not go after other gods , etc.] To serve and worship them, and swear by them; and which indeed are no gods, only nominal and fictitious ones; idols which are nothing in the world, and ought to have no veneration and adoration given them; to go after them is to worship them, and this is to depart from the true God, and go a whoring after false deities: of the gods of the people which are round about you ; the gods of the Edomites, Ammonites, Moabites, Philistines, and Egyptians; all of which had their peculiar deities.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 6-16 - Here are means for maintaining and keeping up religion in our heart and houses. 1. Meditation. God's words must be laid up in our hearts that our thoughts may be daily employed about them. 2. The religiou education of children. Often repeat these things to them. Be carefu and exact in teaching thy children. Teach these truths to all who ar any way under thy care. 3. Pious discourse. Thou shalt talk of thes things with due reverence and seriousness, for the benefit not only of thy children, but of thy servants, thy friends and companions. Take all occasions to discourse with those about thee, not of matters of doubtful disputation, but of the plain truths and laws of God, and the things that belong to our peace. 4. Frequent reading of the word. God appointed them to write sentences of the law upon their walls, and i scrolls of parchment to be worn about their wrists. This seems to have been binding in the letter of it to the Jews, as it is to us in the intent of it; which is, that we should by all means make the word of God familiar to us; that we may have it ready to use upon all occasions, to restrain us from sin, and direct us in duty. We mus never be ashamed to own our religion, nor to own ourselves under it check and government. Here is a caution not to forget God in a day of prosperity and plenty. When they came easily by the gift, they would be apt to grow secure, and unmindful of the Giver. Therefore be careful when thou liest safe and soft, lest thou forget the Lord. When the world smiles, we are apt to make court to it, and expect our happines in it, and so we forget Him who is our only portion and rest. There is need of great care and caution at such a time. Then beware; being warned of your danger, stand upon your guard. Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God; neither by despairing of his power and goodness, while we keep in the way of our duty; nor by presuming upon it, when we tur aside out of that way.
