SEV Biblia, Chapter 15:32 Y estando los hijos de Israel en el desierto, hallaron un hombre que recogía leña en día de sábado.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Numbers 15:32 Verse 32. They found a man that gathered sticks upon the Sabbath] This was in all likelihood a case of that kind supposed above: the man despised the word of the Lord, and therefore broke his commandment; see ver. 31. On this ground he was punished with the utmost rigor of the law.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 32. And while the children of Israel were in the wilderness , etc.] According to Aben Ezra, in the wilderness of Sinai; for it is a common notion of the Jews, that though this fact is recorded here, yet was committed the first year the Israelites came out of Egypt, quickly after the giving the law of the sabbath: hence Jarchi remarks, that the Scripture speaks of this to the reproach of the Israelites, that they kept only the first sabbath, and on the second this man came and profaned it; but it seems rather to be in the wilderness of Paran where this fact was committed, after the business of the spies and the discomfiture of Israel, and the above laws were given; and stands here in its proper place as an instance of a presumptuous sinner, cut off from his people, according to the above law, which it immediately follows: they found a man that gathered sticks on the sabbath day ; plucking them up by the roots, as the Targum of Jonathan, as stubble and the like; for the word signifies gathering straw or stubble, or such like light things, as Ben Melech observes, and binding them in bundles for fuel; and this was done on the sabbath day, by which it appears that that was to be kept in the wilderness, though the laws before mentioned concerning sacrifices, and the cake of the first dough, were not to be put in execution until Israel came into the land of Canaan; and according to the Targum of Jonathan this man was of the house of Joseph, and in the Talmud it is expressly said that he was Zelophehad, who was a descendant of Joseph.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 30-36 - Those are to be reckoned presumptuous sinners, who sin designedl against God's will and glory. Sins thus committed are exceedingl sinful. He that thus breaks the commandment reproaches the Lord. He also despises the word of the Lord. Presumptuous sinners despise it thinking themselves too great, too good, and too wise, to be ruled by it. A particular instance of presumption in the sin of sabbath-breakin is related. The offence was gathering sticks on the sabbath day, to make a fire, whereas the people were to bake and seethe what they ha occasion for, the day before, Ex 16:23. This was done as an affron both to the law and to the Lawgiver. God is jealous for the honour of his sabbaths, and will not hold him guiltless who profanes them whatever men may do. God intended this punishment for a warning to all to make conscience of keeping holy the sabbath. And we may be assure that no command was ever given for the punishment of sin, which, at the judgment day, shall not prove to have come from perfect love an justice. The right of God to a day of devotion to himself, will be disputed and denied only by such as listen to the pride and unbelief of their hearts, rather than to the teaching of the Spirit of truth an life. Wherein consists the difference between him who was detecte gathering sticks in the wilderness on the day of God, and the man wh turns his back upon the blessings of sabbath appointments, and the promises of sabbath mercies, to use his time, his cares, and his soul in heaping up riches; and waste his hours, his property, and his strength in sinful pleasure? Wealth may come by the unhallowed effort but it will not come alone; it will have its awful reward. Sinfu pursuits lead to ruin.
