    SEV Biblia, Chapter 16:15

    Y les dijo: Vosotros sois los que os justificis a vosotros mismos delante de los hombres; pero Dios conoce vuestros corazones; porque lo que los hombres tienen por sublime, delante de Dios es abominacin.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Luke 16:15

    Verse 15. Ye-justify yourselves] Ye declare yourselves to be just. Ye endeavour to make it appear to
    men that ye can still feel an insatiable thirst after the present world, and yet secure the blessings of another; that ye can reconcile God and mammon,-and serve two masters with equal zeal and affection; but God knoweth your hearts,-and he knoweth that ye are alive to the world, and dead to God and goodness. Therefore, howsoever ye may be esteemed among men, ye are an abomination before him. See the note on chap. vii. 29.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 15. And he said unto them , etc.] That is,
    Jesus said unto them, as the Syriac and Persic versions express it: ye are they which justify yourselves before men: from the sins of injustice, unfaithfulness, covetousness, and all others; and would be thought, and appear to be righteous; but it is only in the sight of men, who can only see the outside of things, and judge thereby: but God knoweth your hearts ; and what is in them, the deceitfulness, hypocrisy, covetousness, and cruelty of them, which are hid from the eyes of men: for that which is highly esteemed among men ; or what is high in the account and esteem of men, as the outward appearance of these men for morality, religion, and holiness; their zeal for the ceremonies of the law, and the traditions of the elders: is abomination in the sight of God ; who knew full well from what principles, and with what views they acted, to gain popular applause, and amass riches to themselves, without any concern for the glory of God, and the good of men: (see Isaiah 65:5).

    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

    16:15 {That
    justify yourselves} (hoi dikaiountes heautous). They were past-masters at that and were doing it now by upturned noses. {An abomination in the sight of God} (bdelugma enwpion tou qeou). See on Mt 24:15; Mr 13:14 for this LXX word for a detestable thing as when Antiochus Epiphanes set up an altar to Zeus in place of that to Jehovah. There is withering scorn in the use of this phrase by Jesus to these pious pretenders.
