    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:9

    Y como ladrones que esperan a algún varón, concilio de sacerdotes que de común acuerdo mata en el camino, porque ponen en efecto la abominación.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Hosea 6:9

    Verse 9. As troops of robbers] What a
    sad picture is this of the state of the priesthood! The country of Gilead was infamous for its robberies and murders. The idolatrous priests there formed themselves into companies, and kept possession of the roads and passes; and if they found any person going to Jerusalem to worship the true God, they put him to death. The reason is given:- For they commit lewdness.] They are gross idolaters.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 9. And as troops of robbers wait for a man , etc.] As a gang of highwaymen or footpads
    lie in wait in a ditch, or under a hedge, or in a cave of a rock or mountain, for a man they know will come by that way, who is full of money, in order to rob him; or, as Saadiah interprets it, as fishermen stand upon the banks of a river, and cast in their hooks to draw out the fish; and to the same purpose is Jarchi’s note from R. Meir: [so] the company of priests murder in the way by consent ; not only encourage murderers, and commit murders within the city, but go out in a body together upon the highway, and there commit murders and robberies, and divide the spoil among them; all which they did unanimously, and were well agreed, being brethren in iniquity, as well as in office: or, “in the way of Shechem” f124 ; as good people passed by Gilead to Shechem, and so to Jerusalem, to worship there at the solemn feasts, they lay in wait for them, and murdered them; because they did not give into the idolatrous worship of the calves at Daniel and Bethel: or, “in the manner of Shechem” f125 ; that is, they murdered men in a deceitful treacherous manner, as the Shechemites were murdered by Simeon and Levi: Joseph Kimchi interprets this of the princes and great men, so the word “cohanim” is sometimes used; but the context seems to carry it to the priests: for they commit lewdness ; or “enormity”; the most enormous crimes, and that purposely, with deliberation devising and contriving them.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    The
    Divine judgments against Israel. (Hos. 5:1-7) Approachin desolations threatened. (Hos. 5:8-15)

    Hos. 5:1-7 The piercing eye of God saw secret liking and disposition to sin, the love the house of Israel had to their sins, and the dominio their sins had over them. Pride makes men obstinate in other sins. An as Judah was treading in the same steps, they would fall with Israel By dealing treacherously with the Lord, men only deceive themselves Those that go to seek the Lord with their flocks and their herds only and not with their hearts and souls, cannot expect to find him; no shall any speed who do not seek the Lord while he may be found. See ho much it is our concern to seek God early, now, while it is the accepte time, and the day of salvation.

    Hos. 5:8-15 The destruction of impenitent sinners is not mere talk, to frighten them, it is a sentence which will not be recalled. And it is mercy that we have timely warning given us, that we may flee from the wrath to come. Compliance with the commandments of men, who thwart the commandments of God, ripens a people for ruin. The judgments of God ar sometimes to a sinful people as a moth, and as rottenness, or as worm; as these consume the clothes and the wood, so shall the judgment of God consume them. Silently, they shall think themselves safe an thriving, but when they look into their state, shall find themselve wasting and decaying. Slowly, for the Lord gives them space to repent Many a nation; as well as many a person, dies of a consumption Gradually, God comes upon sinners with lesser judgments, to preven greater, if they will be wise, and take warning. When Israel and Juda found themselves in danger, they sought the protection of the Assyrians, but this only helped to make their wound the worse. The would be forced to apply to God. He will bring them home to himself, by afflictions. When men begin to complain more of their sins than of their afflictions, then there begins to be some hope of them; and when under the conviction of sin, and the corrections of the rod, we mus seek the knowledge of God. Those who are led by severe trials to see God earnestly and sincerely, will find him a present help and a effectual refuge; for with him is plenteous redemption for all who cal upon him. There is solid peace, and there only, where God is __________________________________________________________________
