    VERSE (11) -
    Da 4:30-34

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:11

    Entonces él se ensoberbecerá contra Dios , y pasará adelante, y ofenderá atribuyendo ésta su potencia a su dios.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Habakkuk 1:11

    Verse 11. Then shall his
    mind change] This is thought to relate to the change which took place in Nebuchadnezzar, when "a beast's heart was given to him," and he was "driven from the dwellings of men." And this was because of his offending- his pride and arrogance; and his attributing all his success, &c., to his idols.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 11. Then shall [his]
    mind change , etc.] The mind of the king of Babylon; not that, when he had taken Jerusalem, he altered his purpose, and laid aside his designs of attacking other nations, and returned to his own country; where he became guilty of gross idolatry, in setting up the golden image in the plain of Dura, which he required all his subjects to worship, and to which he ascribed all his victories; for, five years after this, Josephus says, he led his army into Coelesyria, and conquered the Moabites and Ammonites, and entered Egypt, and slew the reigning king of it: but rather the disposition of his mind changed for the worse upon his success in subduing kings and princes, and their kingdoms; for though his mind was never good, but always proud, haughty, and ambitious, insolent, cruel, and tyrannical; yet, being flushed with his conquests, he grew more and more so: and he shall pass over f46 , or “transgress”, all bounds of modesty and sobriety, of humanity and goodness: and offend, [imputing] this his power unto his god f47 ; this particularly will be the sin he will be guilty of, he will ascribe all his achievements to his idol Bel; or rather to himself, to his own prowess and valour, his wisdom and skill in military affairs; for so it will bear to be rendered, making “this his own power to be his god”; and perhaps the golden image Nebuchadnezzar set up to be worshipped was for himself; (see Daniel 4:30). The Targum is, “therefore, because of the lifting up of his spirit, his kingdom was removed from him; and he committed an offence, in that he multiplied glory to his idol;” and some interpret the whole of this of the miserable condition Nebuchadnezzar was brought into, being a prophecy of it: “then shall his mind change”; his heart from man’s to a beast’s, ( Daniel 4:16): “and he shall pass over”; from all society and conversation with men, and have his dwelling with beasts, ( Daniel 4:31,32): “and offend”, or rather “be punished”, and become desolate and miserable, for his pride, and idolatry, and other sins: “this his power” is “his god” f48 ; spoken ironically; see what his power is now, being changed into a beast, which he reckoned his god, or gloried in as what he had from his god: but I rather think the whole is a continuation of his success, particularly in the land of Judea; and to be rendered, “then shall he pass through, as the wind, and shall pass over; and he shall bear the punishment of his sin, whose power is his god”; that is, the king of Babylon and his army, the Chaldeans, should pass through all nations and kingdoms that were between them and Judea, like a strong wind or whirlwind, to which they are compared, ( Jeremiah 4:13) and carry all before them, none being able to resist and oppose them; and should pass over rivers that lay in their way, and the boundaries of Judea, and spread themselves over the whole country; and then that country, and the inhabitants of it, should be punished for their sins, particularly for their confidence in themselves; in their wealth and riches; in their fortresses and strong towers; in their own works of righteousness; all which they made idols of, and trusted not in their God, as they ought to have done.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-11 - The
    servants of the Lord are deeply afflicted by seeing ungodliness an violence prevail; especially among those who profess the truth. No ma scrupled doing wrong to his neighbour. We should long to remove to the world where holiness and love reign for ever, and no violence shall be before us. God has good reasons for his long-suffering towards bad men and the rebukes of good men. The day will come when the cry of sin wil be heard against those that do wrong, and the cry of prayer for thos that suffer wrong. They were to notice what was going forward among the heathen by the Chaldeans, and to consider themselves a nation to be scourged by them. But most men presume on continued prosperity, or tha calamities will not come in their days. They are a bitter and hast nation, fierce, cruel, and bearing down all before them. They shal overcome all that oppose them. But it is a great offence, and the common offence of proud people, to take glory to themselves. The closing words give a glimpse of comfort.
