    1Ki 22:22 Job 1:10-12; 2:3-6 Ac 2:23; 4:28 Re 20:7

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:32

    Y les dijo: Id. Y ellos salieron, y se fueron a aquel hato de puercos; y he aquí, todo el hato de los puercos se precipit de un despeadero en el mar, y murieron en las aguas.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Matthew 8:32

    Verse 32. They went into the
    herd of swine] Instead of thn agelhn twn coirwn, the herd of swine, Griesbach reads touv coirouv, the swine, on the authority of many MSS. and versions.

    The whole herd of swine] twn coirwn, of swine, is omitted by many MSS. and versions. See Griesbach, and see on "Luke viii. 20", &c.

    Ran violently down a steep place, &c.] The prayer of these demons is heard and answered! Strange! But let it be noted, that God only hears demons and certain sinners when their prayer is the echo of his own justice. Here is an emblem of the final impenitence and ruin into which the swinish sinners, the habitually unpure, more commonly fall than other sinners. Christ permits the demons to do that in the swine which he did not permit them to do in the possessed, on purpose to show us what rage they would exercise on us if left to their liberty and malice. Many are the Divine favours which we do not consider, or know only in general. "But the owners of the swine lost their property." Yes; and learn from this of how small value temporal riches, are in the estimation of God. He suffers them to be lost, sometimes to disengage us from them through mercy; sometimes out of justice, to punish us for having acquired or preserved them either by covetousness or injustice.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 32. And he said unto them, go , etc.]. He gave them leave, as God did to Satan, in the case of Job; for without divine permission, these evil spirits cannot do anything to the bodies, souls, or estates of men: they could not enter into the swine without leave, and much less do things of greater moment and consequence; and therefore are not to be feared, or dreaded by men, especially by the people of God. It may be asked, why did Christ suffer the devils to enter the herd of swine, and destroy them, which was a considerable loss to the proprietors? To which may be answered, that if the owners were Jews, and these creatures were brought up by them for food, it was a just punishment of their breach of the law of God; or if to be sold to others, for gain and filthy lucres sake, it was a proper rebuke, both of the avarice and the contempt of the laws of their own country, which were made to be a hedge or fence for the law of God: or if they were Gentiles, this was suffered to show the malice of the evil spirits, under whose influence they were, and who would, if they had but leave, serve them as they did the swine; and to display the power of Christ over the devils, and his sovereign right to, and disposal of the goods and properties of men; and to evince the truth of the dispossession, and the greatness of the mercy the dispossessed shared in; and to spread the fame of the miracle the more. And when they were come out of the men that had been possessed by them, they went into the herd of swine ; which shows the real existence of these spirits, the truth of possessions and dispossessions; and that by these devils cannot be meant the sins and corruptions of mens hearts, such as pride, covetousness, uncleanness, envy, malice, cruelty, etc. for these could never be said to enter into a herd of swine, or be the authors of their destruction: and behold, the whole herd of swine , and which was a very large one, consisting of about two thousand, ran violently down a steep place ; a precipice of one of the rocks, by the sea side, into the sea of Tiberias, or lake of Genesareth, which were the same, and over which Christ had just now passed; and perished in the waters of the sea, or lake, and not any other waters near Gadara, and afar off from hence.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 28-34 - The
    devils have nothing to do with Christ as a Saviour; they neithe have, nor hope for any benefit from him. Oh the depth of this myster of Divine love; that fallen man has so much to do with Christ, when fallen angels have nothing to do with him! Heb 2:16. Surely here wa torment, to be forced to own the excellence that is in Christ, and ye they had no part in him. The devils desire not to have any thing to d with Christ as a Ruler. See whose language those speak, who will have nothing to do with the gospel of Christ. But it is not true that the devils have nothing to do with Christ as a Judge; for they have, an they know it, and thus it is with all the children of men. Satan an his instruments can go no further than he permits; they must qui possession when he commands. They cannot break his hedge of protectio about his people; they cannot enter even a swine without his leave They had leave. God often, for wise and holy ends, permits the effort of Satan's rage. Thus the devil hurries people to sin; hurries them to what they have resolved against, which they know will be shame an grief to them: miserable is the condition of those who are led captiv by him at his will. There are a great many who prefer their swin before the Saviour, and so come short of Christ and salvation by him They desire Christ to depart out of their hearts, and will not suffe his word to have place in them, because he and his word would destro their brutish lusts, those swine which they give themselves up to feed And justly will Christ forsake all that are weary of him; and sad hereafter, Depart, ye cursed, to those who now say to the Almighty Depart from us __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    32. A
    steep place (tou krhmnou). Much better the steep (Rev.). Not an overhanding precipice, but a steep, almost perpendicular declivity, between the base of which and the water was a narrow margin of ground, in which there was not room for the swine to recover from their headlong rush. Dr. Thomson ("Land and Book") says: "Farther south the plain becomes so broad that the herd might have recovered and recoiled from the lake." The article localizes the steep as in the vicinity of the pasture.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    8:32 {
    Rushed down the steep} (hwrmesen kata tou kremnou). Down from the cliff (ablative case) into the sea. Constative aorist tense. The influence of mind on matter is now understood better than formerly, but we have the mastery of the mind of the Master on the minds of the maniacs, the power of Christ over the demons, over the herd of hogs. Difficulties in plenty exist for those who see only folk-lore and legend, but plain enough if we take Jesus to be really Lord and Savior. The incidental destruction of the hogs need not trouble us when we are so familiar with nature's tragedies which we cannot comprehend.
