    SEV Biblia, Chapter 16:14

    Y oían tambin todas estas cosas los fariseos, los cuales eran avaros, y se burlaban de l.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Luke 16:14

    Verse 14. They
    derided him] Or rather, They treated him with the utmost contempt. So we may translate the original words exemukthrizon auton, which literally signifies, in illum emunxerunt-but must not be translated into English, unless, to come a little near it, we say, they turned up their noses at him; and why! Because they were lovers of money, and he showed them that all such were in danger of perdition. As they were wedded to this life, and not concerned for the other, they considered him one of the most absurd and foolish of men, and worthy only of the most sovereign contempt, because he taught that spiritual and eternal things should be preferred before the riches of the universe. And how many thousands are there of the very same sentiment to the present day!

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 14. And the
    Pharisees also who were covetous , etc.] Or lovers of money, the love of which is the root of all evil; and that they were, is evident from their devouring widows' houses, under a pretence of making long prayers for them, ( Matthew 23:14) heard all these things ; as well as the disciples, being in company with them, ( Luke 15:2) even the parable concerning the unjust steward, and the application of it; and the directions given about using the things of this world, and the distributing of them to the poor, and showing a greater concern for riches of an higher nature: and they derided him : lift up their nose, or drew it out to him, as the word signifies, in a sneering way; they rejected and despised what he said about their injustice, in their stewardship; the calling of them to an account for it, and the turning of them out of it; and concerning the true use of worldly riches, and the contempt of them; they looked upon themselves safe and secure in the good opinion of the people, and happy in the enjoyment of worldly things; and looked upon him as a weak man, to talk in the manner he did.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 13-18 - To this
    parable our Lord added a solemn warning. Ye cannot serve God and the world, so divided are the two interests. When our Lord spok thus, the covetous Pharisees treated his instructions with contempt But he warned them, that what they contended for as the law, was wresting of its meaning: this our Lord showed in a case respectin divorce. There are many covetous sticklers for the forms of godliness who are the bitterest enemies to its power, and try to set other against the truth.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    16:14 {Who were
    lovers of money} (filarguroi huparcontes). Literally, being lovers of money. filarguroi is an old word, but in the N.T. only here and #2Ti 3:2. It is from filos and arguros. {Heard} (ekouon). Imperfect active, were listening (all the while Jesus was talking to the disciples (verses #1-13). {And they scoffed at him} (kai exemukterizon). Imperfect active again of ekmukterizw. LXX where late writers use simple verb. In the N.T. only here and #Lu 23:35. It means to turn out or up the nose at one, to sneer, to scoff. The Romans had a phrase, _naso adunco suspendere_, to hang on the hooked nose (the subject of ridicule). These money-loving Pharisees were quick to see that the words of Jesus about the wise use of money applied to them. They had stood without comment the three parables aimed directly at them (the lost sheep, the lost coin, the lost son). But now they do not remain quiet while they hear the fourth parable spoken to the disciples. No words were apparently spoken, but their eyes, noses, faces were eloquent with a fine disdain.
