SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:17 Asimismo derribó la torre de Peniel, y mató a los de la ciudad.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 17. And he beat down the tower of Penuel , etc.] As he threatened he would, ( Judges 8:9) whether this was before or after he had chastised the elders of Succoth, is not clear; one would think by the course he steered going from Succoth to Penuel, as he went, he should come to Penuel first at his return; however, he demolished their tower in which they trusted: and slew the men of the city ; perhaps they might, as Kimchi conjectures, resist when he went about to beat down their tower; on which a fray might ensue, in which they were slain; or they might upon his approach, sensible of the offence they had given him, fly to their tower for safety, and were killed in it when that was beaten down about them. In what manner this was done is not said; no doubt they had instruments in those days for demolishing such edifices.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 13-17 - The active servants of the Lord meet with more dangerous oppositio from false professors than from open enemies; but they must not car for the behaviour of those who are Israelites in name, but Midianite in heart. They must pursue the enemies of their souls, and of the caus of God, though they are ready to faint through inward conflicts an outward hardships. And they shall be enabled to persevere. The less me help, and the more they seek to hinder, the more will the Lord assist Gideon's warning being slighted, the punishment was just. Many ar taught with the briers and thorns of affliction, who would not lear otherwise.
