    SEV Biblia, Chapter 7:20

    Respondi el pueblo, y dijo: Demonio tienes; ¿quin te procura matar?

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - John 7:20

    Verse 20. Thou hast a
    devil] The crowd, who made this answer, were not in the secret of the chief priests. They could not suppose that any person desired to put him to death for healing a diseased man; and therefore, in their brutish manner, they say, Thou hast a demon-thou art beside thyself, and slanderest the people, for none of them desires to put thee to death. The Codex Cyprius (K,) four others, and the margin of the later Syriac, attribute this answer to the Jews, i.e. those who were seeking his life. If the reading, therefore, of oi ioudaioi, the Jews, be received instead of o oclov, the multitude, it serves to show the malice of his enemies in a still stronger light: for, fearing lest their wish to put him to death might not be gratified, and that his teaching should prevail among the common people; to ruin his credit, and prevent his usefulness, they give out that he was possessed by a demon; and that, though he might be pitied as a miserable man, yet he must not be attended to as a teacher of righteousness. Malice and envy are ever active and indefatigable, leaving no stone unturned, no mean unused, that they may win the object of their resentment. See the note on ver. 26.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 20. The people answered and said , etc.] These seem to be the
    country people, who came from Galilee and other parts, who knew nothing of the designs of the Jerusalem Jews upon him; nor were they his downright enemies at least, but rather seemed to favour him, and were on his side, though greatly provoked to hear him talk after this manner: thou hast a devil ; or art possessed with one; thou talkest like one of the demoniacs, like a madman, one beside thyself; whom the devil has so much power over, and has so deprived of thy senses, that thou knowest not what thou sayest: who goeth about to kill thee ? no man; for they could not believe that any man, or body of men, would be so wicked, as to attempt to take away the life of so harmless a person, and who did so much good both to the bodies and souls of men.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 14-24 - Every
    faithful minister may humbly adopt Christ's words. His doctrin is not his own finding out, but is from God's word, through the teaching of his Spirit. And amidst the disputes which disturb the world, if any man, of any nation, seeks to do the will of God, he shal know whether the doctrine is of God, or whether men speak of themselves. Only those who hate the truth shall be given up to error which will be fatal. Surely it was as agreeable to the design of the sabbath to restore health to the afflicted, as to administer an outwar rite. Jesus told them to decide on his conduct according to the spiritual import of the Divine law. We must not judge concerning any by their outward appearance, but by their worth, and by the gifts an graces of God's Spirit in them.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    20. A
    devil (daimonion). Or more correctly, a demon. See on Mark i. 34. The name was applied to Jesus by the multitude (oclov) and not by those whom He was addressing in ver. 19, because of the gloomy suspicions which they thought He entertained, and in entire ignorance of the design of the Jews which Jesus had penetrated. The same term was applied to John the Baptist, the ascetic, as one who withdrew from social intercourse (Matt. xi. 18).
