SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:7 él jurará aquel día, diciendo: No tomaré ese cuidado; porque en mi casa ni hay pan, ni qué vestir; no me hagáis príncipe del pueblo.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Isaiah 3:7 Verse 7. In that day shall he swear "Then shall he openly declare"] The Septuagint, Syriac, and Jerome, read ayw veyissa, adding the conjunction, which seems necessary in this place.
I will not be a healer] I am noy a leche. - Old MS. Bible. Leech was the ancient English word for a physician.
For in my house is neither bread nor clothing "For in my house is neither bread nor raiment"] "It is customary through all the East," says Sir J. Chardin, "to gather together an immense quantity of furniture and clothes; for their fashions never alter." Princes and great men are obliged to have a great stock of such things in readiness for presents upon all occasions. "The kings of Persia," says the same author, "have great wardrobes, where there are always many hundreds of habits ready, designed for presents, and sorted," Harmer, Observ., ii. 11 and 88. A great quantity of provision for the table was equally necessary. The daily provision for Solomon's household, whose attendants were exceedingly numerous, was proportionately great, 1 Kings iv. 22, 23. Even Nehemiah, in his strait circumstances, had a large supply daily for his table; at which he received a hundred and fifty of the Jews and rulers, besides those that came from among the neighbouring heathen, Neh. v. 17, 18.
This explains the meaning of the excuse made by him that is desired to undertake the government. He alleges that he has not wherewithal to support the dignity of the station, by such acts of liberality and hospitality as the law of custom required of persons of superior rank. See Harmer's Observations, i. 340, ii. 88.
Matthew Henry Commentary The calamities about to come upon the land. (Is. 3:1-9) The wickednes of the people. (Is. 3:10-15) The distress of the proud, luxurious wome of Zion. (Is. 3:16-26)
Is. 3:1-9 God was about to deprive Judah of every stay and support. The city and the land were to be made desolate, because their words an works had been rebellious against the Lord; even at his holy temple. I men do not stay themselves upon God, he will soon remove all othe supports, and then they must sink. Christ is the Bread of life and the Water of life; if he be our Stay, we shall find that is a good part no to be taken away, John 6:27. Here note, 1. That the condition of sinners is exceedingly woful. 2. It is the soul that is damaged by sin 3. Whatever evil befals sinners, be sure that they bring it of themselves.
Is. 3:10-15 The rule was certain; however there might be nationa prosperity or trouble, it would be well with the righteous and ill with the wicked. Blessed be God, there is abundant encouragement to the righteous to trust in him, and for sinners to repent and return to him It was time for the Lord to show his might. He will call men to strict account for all the wealth and power intrusted to and abused by them. If it is sinful to disregard the necessities of the poor, ho odious and wicked a part do they act, who bring men into poverty, an then oppress them!
Is. 3:16-26 The prophet reproves and warns the daughters of Zion of the sufferings coming upon them. Let them know that God notices the foll and vanity of proud women, even of their dress. The punishment threatened answered the sin. Loathsome diseases often are the jus punishment of pride. It is not material to ask what sort of ornament they wore; many of these things, if they had not been in fashion, woul have been ridiculed then as now. Their fashions differed much from those of our times, but human nature is the same. Wasting time an money, to the neglect of piety, charity, and even of justice, displeas the Lord. Many professors at the present day, seem to think there is n harm in worldly finery; but were it not a great evil, would the Holy Spirit have taught the prophet to expose it so fully? The Jews being overcome, Jerusalem would be levelled with the ground; which i represented under the idea of a desolate female seated upon the earth And when the Romans had destroyed Jerusalem, they struck a medal, of which was represented a woman sitting on the ground in a posture of grief. If sin be harboured within the walls, lamentation and mournin are near the gates __________________________________________________________________
