SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:12 que por ventura no comas y te sacies, y edifiques buenas casas en que mores,
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 12. Lest when thou hast eaten and art full , etc.] Not only once and again, but continually, day after day, being indulged with great plenty: and hast built goodly houses, and dwelt [therein] ; who for forty years had only dwelt in tents, moving from place to place in the wilderness.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 10-20 - Moses directs to the duty of a prosperous condition. Let them alway remember their Benefactor. In everything we must give thanks. Mose arms them against the temptations of a prosperous condition. When me possess large estates, or are engaged in profitable business, they fin the temptation to pride, forgetfulness of God, and carnal-mindedness very strong; and they are anxious and troubled about many things. I this the believing poor have the advantage; they more easily perceiv their supplies coming from the Lord in answer to the prayer of faith and, strange as it may seem, they find less difficulty in simpl trusting him for daily bread. They taste a sweetness therein, which i generally unknown to the rich, while they are also freed from many of their temptations. Forget not God's former dealings with thee. Here is the great secret of Divine Providence. Infinite wisdom and goodness ar the source of all the changes and trials believers experience. Israe had many bitter trials, but it was "to do them good." Pride is natura to the human heart. Would one suppose that such a people, after their slavery at the brick-kilns, should need the thorns of the wilderness to humble them? But such is man! And they were proved that they might be humbled. None of us live a single week without giving proofs of ou weakness, folly, and depravity. To broken-hearted souls alone the Saviour is precious indeed. Nothing can render the most suitabl outward and inward trials effectual, but the power of the Spirit of God. See here how God's giving and our getting are reconciled, an apply it to spiritual wealth. All God's gifts are in pursuance of his promises. Moses repeats the warning he had often given of the fata consequences of forsaking God. Those who follow others in sin, wil follow them to destruction. If we do as sinners do, we must expect to fare as sinners fare __________________________________________________________________
