SEV Biblia, Chapter 9:1 ¬∂ Y acabadas estas cosas, los príncipes se llegaron a mí, diciendo: El pueblo de Israel, y los sacerdotes y levitas, no se han apartado de los pueblos de las tierras, de los cananeos, heteos, ferezeos, jebuseos, amonitas, y moabitas, egipcios, y amorreos, haciendo conforme a sus abominaciones.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Ezra 9:1 Verse 1. The people of Israel] These were they who had returned at first with Zerubbabel, and were settled in the land of Judea and whom Ezra found on his arrival to be little better than the Canaanitish nations from whom God had commanded them ever to keep separate.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 1. Now when these things were done , etc.] When the captives with Ezra had refreshed themselves, and weighed the money and vessels they brought, and put them into the hands of proper persons, and offered sacrifices, and delivered the kingís commissions to his lieutenants and governors, and shown his own: the princes came to me ; some of the nobles of Israel, the most religious of them, who were concerned at the corruptions that were among them, though not a sufficient number to reform them: saying the people of Israel, and the priests, and the Levites, have not separated themselves from the people of the land : but joined with them, though not in idolatrous practices, yet by marrying with them, which might lead them into them: doing according to their abominations ; not serving idols as they did, but imitating them in their marriages: even of the Canaanites, the Perizzites, the Jebusites, the Ammonites, the Moabites, the Egyptians, and the Amorites ; affinity with many of these was forbidden by an express law, ( Deuteronomy 7:1,3) all but the Moabites, Ammonites, and Egyptians, and from these for the same reason they were to abstain; namely, lest they should be drawn into idolatry; that the priests and Levites should do this, who ought to have known the law, and instructed the people better, was very sad and shocking.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-4 - Many corruptions lurk out of the view of the most careful rulers. Some of the people disobeyed the express command of God, which forbade all marriages with the heathen, De 7. Disbelief of God's all-sufficiency is at the bottom of the sorry shifts we make to help ourselves. The exposed themselves and their children to the peril of idolatry, tha had ruined their church and nation. Carnal professors may make light of such connexions, and try to explain away the exhortations to be separate; but those who are best acquainted with the word of God, wil treat the subject in another manner. They must forebode the worst from such unions. The evils excused, and even pleaded for; by man professors, astonish and cause regret in the true believer. All wh profess to be God's people, ought to strengthen those that appear an act against vice and profaneness.
