    SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:23

    Ayunamos pues, y buscamos a nuestro Dios sobre esto, y Úl nos fue propicio.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 23. So we fasted, and besought our
    God for this , etc.] Sought the Lord by fasting and prayer for a good journey, and preservation in it: and he was entreated of us ; accepted their prayer, as Jarchi, so that they came safe to Jerusalem.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 21-23 - Ezra procured
    Levites to go with him; but what will that avail, unles he have God with him? Those who seek God, are safe under the shadow of his wings, even in their greatest dangers; but those who forsake him are always exposed. When entering upon any new state of life, our car should be, to bring none of the guilt of the sins of our forme condition into it. When we are in any peril, let us be at peace with God, and then nothing can do us any real hurt. All our concerns abou ourselves, our families, and our estates, it is our wisdom and duty, by prayer to commit to God, and to leave the care of them with him. And on some occasions, we should decline advantages which are within ou reach, lest we should cause others to stumble, and so our God be dishonoured. Let us ask wisdom of God, that we may know how to use of to refuse lawful things. We shall be no losers by venturing, suffering or giving up for the Lord's sake. Their prayers were answered, and the event declared it. Never have any that sought God in earnest, foun that they sought him in vain. In times of difficulty and danger, to se a season apart for secret or for social prayer, is the best method for relief we can take.
