SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:19 Mas será, que si te olvidares por completo del SEÑOR tu Dios, y anduvieres en pos de dioses ajenos, y les sirvieres, y a ellos os inclinares, yo lo protesto hoy contra vosotros, que de cierto pereceréis.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 19. And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the Lord thy God , etc.] Either the mercies they received from him, not acknowledging they came from him, but ascribing them to themselves; or their duty to him, to whom they were so greatly obliged: and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them; which would be to forget him indeed, forsaking his worship, and giving homage and adoration to idols, which is what is intended by these expressions: I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish ; by one judgment and calamity or another, as the sword, famine, pestilence, and captivity; there being nothing more provoking to God than idolatry, which so much detracts from his honour and glory: and which besides, in such a people, so highly favoured of God, it argued the basest ingratitude.
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 __________________________________________________________________
