    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:7

    ¿Se agradará el SEÑOR de millares de carneros, o de diez mil arroyos de aceite? ¿Daré mi primogénito por mi rebelión, el fruto de mi vientre por el pecado de mi alma?

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Micah 6:7

    Verse 7. Will the
    Lord be pleased with thousands of rams] These might be procured, though with difficulty; but conscience says neither will these do.

    With ten thousands of rivers of oil] This is absurd and impossible; but could even these be procured, could they all make atonement for such guilt, and ingratitude, and rebellion? Shall I give my first-born for my transgression] This was sinful and wicked; but such offerings had been made by the Phoenicians, and their successors the Carthaginians, and this very custom was copied by the corrupt Israelites. See some cases of such offerings, 2 Kings iii. 27; Lev. xx. 27.

    The fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?] This clause is an explanation of the former. Shall I make the first-born, the best and goodliest of my children, tafj chattath, a SIN- OFFERING for my soul? And thus the original is used in a multitude of places.

    When they had put all these questions to their reason and conscience, they found no satisfaction; their distraction is increased, and despair is about to take place, when Jehovah, the plaintiff, in his mercy interposes:


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 7. Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams , etc.] If single burnt offerings of bullocks and heifers will not do, will rams, and thousands of them, be acceptable to him? if they will, they are at his service, even as many as he pleases; such creatures, as well as oxen, were offered by Balak, ( Numbers 23:1,2,4,29,30); [or] with ten thousands of rivers of oil ? for meat offerings, as Jarchi, in which oil was used: this is a hyperbolical expression, as Kimchi rightly observes; suggesting that he was willing to be at any expenses, even the most extravagant, if he could but gain his point, and get the God of Israel on his side. Some render it, “ten thousands of fat valleys” f197 ; abounding with corn, and wine, and oil; the produce of which, had he so many, he could freely part with, could he but obtain his end; (see Job 20:17); shall I give my firstborn [for] my transgression, the fruit of my body [for] the sin of my soul ? his Son, his firstborn, his own flesh and blood, to make atonement for his sins and transgressions; this betrays the person speaking.

    The people of Israel, though they were sometimes guilty of this horrid, unnatural, and abominable sin, in the height of their degeneracy and apostasy, as to sacrifice their children to Moloch; yet when convinced of their sins, and humbling themselves before God for them, even though but in a hypocritical way, could never be so weak and foolish, so impious and audacious, as to propose that to God, which they knew was so contrary to his will, and so abominable in his sight, ( Leviticus 18:21); but this comes well enough from a Heathen prince, with whom it was the, height of his devotion and religion, and the greatest sacrifice he thought he could offer up to God; for there is a climax, a gradation in the words from lesser things to greater; and this is the greatest of all, and what was done among the Heathens, ( 2 Kings 17:31); and was afterwards done by a king of Moab, ( 2 Kings 3:26,27).


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 6-8 - These verses seem to contain the substance of Balak's consultation with Balaam how to obtain the favour of Israel's God. Deep conviction of guilt and wrath will put men upon careful inquiries after peace an pardon, and then there begins to be some ground for hope of them. I order to God's being pleased with us, our care must be for an interes in the atonement of Christ, and that the sin by which we displease his may be taken away. What will be a satisfaction to God's justice? I whose name must we come, as we have nothing to plead as our own? I what righteousness shall we appear before him? The proposals betra ignorance, though they show zeal. They offer that which is very ric and costly. Those who are fully convinced of sin, and of their miser and danger by reason of it, would give all the world, if they had it for peace and pardon. Yet they do not offer aright. The sacrifices ha value from their reference to Christ; it was impossible that the bloo of bulls and goats should take away sin. And all proposals of peace except those according to the gospel, are absurd. They could not answe the demands of Divine justice, nor satisfy the wrong done to the honou of God by sin, nor would they serve at all in place of holiness of the heart and reformation of the life. Men will part with any thing rathe than their sins; but they part with nothing so as to be accepted of God, unless they do part with their sins. Moral duties are commande because they are good for man. In keeping God's commandments there is great reward, as well as after keeping them. God has not only made it known, but made it plain. The good which God requires of us is, not the paying a price for the pardon of sin and acceptance with God, but love to himself; and what is there unreasonable, or hard, in this? Ever thought within us must be brought down, to be brought into obedience to God, if we would walk comfortably with him. We must do this as peniten sinners, in dependence on the Redeemer and his atonement. Blessed by the Lord that he is ever ready to give his grace to the humble, waitin penitent.
