SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:13 Y dijo Hageo: Si alg˙n inmundo a causa de cuerpo muerto tocare alguna cosa de Ústas, ┬┐ser inmunda? Y respondieron los sacerdotes, y dijeron: Inmunda ser.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 13. Then said Haggai , etc.] To the priests; having nothing to object to their answer; but being satisfied with it, he puts another question: if [one that is] unclean by a dead body ; by the touch of it, ( Numbers 19:11): touch any of these, shall it be unclean ? that is, if such an impure person, who was so in a ceremonial sense, should touch any of the above things, bread, pottage, wine, or oil, or any meat, would not they become unclean thereby, and so not fit for use? and the priests answered and said, it shall be unclean ; which was rightly answered; for whatsoever such an unclean person touched was unclean, according to the law, ( Leviticus 19:22). Pollution is more easily and more extensively conveyed than holiness.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 10-19 - Many spoiled this good work, by going about it with unholy hearts an hands, and were likely to gain no advantage by it. The sum of these tw rules of the law is, that sin is more easily learned from others tha holiness. The impurity of their hearts and lives shall make the work of their hands, and all their offerings, unclean before God. The case is the same with us. When employed in any good work, we should watch ove ourselves, lest we render it unclean by our corruptions. When we begi to make conscience of duty to God, we may expect his blessing; an whoso is wise will understand the loving-kindness of the Lord. God wil curse the blessings of the wicked, and make bitter the prosperity of the careless; but he will sweeten the cup of affliction to those wh diligently serve him.
