SEV Biblia, Chapter 22:17 Â¿Nos ha sido poco la maldad de Peor, de la que no estamos aún limpios hasta este día, por la cual fue la mortandad en la congregación del SEÑOR?
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Joshua 22:17 Verse 17. Is the iniquity of Peor too little] See this history, Num. xxv. 3, &c., and the notes there. Phinehas takes it for granted that this altar was built in opposition to the altar of God erected by Moses, and that they intended to have a separate service, priesthood, &c., which would be rebellion against God, and bring down his curse on them and their posterity; and, in order to show that God is jealous of his glory, he refers to the business of Baal Peor, which took place in that very country they were now about to possess, the destructive consequences of which he, through his zeal for the glory of God, was the means of preventing.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 17. [Is] the iniquity of Peor too little for us , etc.] The worshipping of that idol, when in the plains of Moab; the history of which, see in ( Numbers 25:2,3), was that so small a sin, that another must be added to it, or a greater committed? since building an altar seemed designed not for a single action of idolatrous worship, but for the continuance of it, whereas the sin of Peor was only committed at one time, and not continued in: from which we are not cleansed until this day ; not cleared from the shame and disgrace of it, or the guilt of it expiated or removed; but it might be expected, as in the case of the golden calf, that God would still at times punish for it, when provoked by new crimes; or the sense is, that there were those among them that were infected with the same contagion, and whose inclinations were to commit the same, or like sin of idolatry: although there was a plague in congregation of the Lord ; of which twenty four thousand died, ( Numbers 25:9).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 10-20 - Here is the care of the separated tribes to keep their hold of Canaan' religion. At first sight it seemed a design to set up an altar agains the altar at Shiloh. God is jealous for his own institutions; we shoul be so too, and afraid of every thing that looks like, or leads to idolatry. Corruptions in religion are best dealt with at first. But their prudence in following up this zealous resolution is no les commendable. Many an unhappy strife would be prevented, or soon mad up, by inquiries into the matter of the offence. The remembrance of great sins committed formerly, should engage us to stand on our guar against the beginnings of sin; for the way of sin is down-hill. We ar all concerned to reprove our neighbour when he does amiss, lest we suffer sin upon him, Le 19:17. The offer made that they should be welcome to come to the land where the Lord's tabernacle was, and settl there, was in the spirit of true Israelites.
