    SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:27

    ni deis lugar al diablo.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Ephesians 4:27

    Verse 27. Neither give
    place to the devil.] Your adversary will strive to influence your mind, and irritate your spirit; watch and pray that he may not get any place in you, or ascendancy over you.

    As the word diabolov is sometimes used to signify a calumniator, tale-bearer, whisperer, or backbiter; (see in the original, 1 Tim. iii. 11; 2 Tim. iii. 3, and Tit. ii. 3;) here it may have the same signification. Do not open your ear to the tale-bearer, to the slanderer, who comes to you with accusations against your brethren, or with surmisings and evil speakings. These are human devils; they may be the means of making you angry, even without any solid pretense; therefore give them no place, that you may not be angry at any time; but if, unhappily, you should be overtaken in this fault, let not the sun go down upon your wrath; go to your brother, against whom you have found your spirit irritated; tell him what you have heard, and what you fear; let your ears be open to receive his own account; carefully listen to his own explanation; and, if possible, let the matter be finally settled, that Satan may not gain advantage over either.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 25-28 - Notice the particulars wherewith we should adorn our Christia profession. Take heed of every thing contrary to truth. No longe flatter or deceive others. God's people are children who will not lie who dare not lie, who hate and abhor lying. Take heed of anger an ungoverned passions. If there is just occasion to express displeasur at what is wrong, and to reprove, see that it be without sin. We giv place to the devil, when the first motions of sin are not grievous to our souls; when we consent to them; and when we repeat an evil deed This teaches that as sin, if yielded unto, lets in the devil upon us we are to resist it, keeping from all appearance of evil. Idlenes makes thieves. Those who will not work, expose themselves to temptations to steal. Men ought to be industrious, that they may d some good, and that they may be kept from temptation. They must labour not only that they may live honestly, but that they may have to give to the wants of others. What then must we think of those calle Christians, who grow rich by fraud, oppression, and deceitfu practices! Alms, to be accepted of God, must not be gained by unrighteousness and robbery, but by honesty and industry. God hate robbery for burnt-offerings.
