SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:3 Y que comen la carne de mi pueblo, y les desuellan su cuero de sobre ellos, y les quebrantan sus huesos y los rompen, como para echar en caldero, y como carnes en olla.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 3. Who also eat the flesh of my people, and flay their skins from off them , etc.] Like cannibals, flay them alive, and then eat their flesh: this signifies, as before, devouring their substance, only expressed in terms which still more set forth their savageness, inhumanity, barbarity, and cruelty. So the Targum, “who spoil the substance of my people, and their precious mammon they take from them;” and what aggravated their guilt was, that they were the Lord’s people by profession and religion they so used; whom he had committed to their care to rule over, protect, and defend: and they break their bones, and chop them in pieces as for the pot, and as flesh within the caldron : did with them as cooks do, who not only cut flesh off the bones, and into slices, but break the bones themselves, to get out the marrow, and chop them small, that they may have all the virtue that is in them, to make their soup and broth the richer; by which is signified, that these wicked and avaricious rulers took every method to squeeze the people, and get all their wealth and riches into their hands, that they might have in a more riotous and luxurious manner.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-8 - Men cannot expect to do ill, and fare well; but to find that done to them which they did to others. How seldom do wholesome truths reach the ears of those in high stations or in authority! Those who deceiv others are preparing confusion for their own faces. The prophet ha ardent love to God and to the souls of men; deep concern for his glor and their salvation, and zeal against sin. The difficulties he met with did not drive him from his work. He had this strength; not from and of himself, but he was full of power by the Spirit of the Lord. Those wh act honestly, may act boldly. And those who come to hear the word of God, must be willing to be told of their faults, must take it kindly and be thankful.
