    SEV Biblia, Chapter 15:38

    Habla a los hijos de Israel, y diles que se hagan pezuelos (franjas) en los remates de sus vestidos, por sus generaciones; y pongan en cada pezuelo de los remates del vestido un cordón de cárdeno.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Numbers 15:38

    Verse 38. Bid them-make them fringes] We
    learn from ver. 39 that these fringes were emblematical of the various commands of God. That there was any analogy between a fringe and a precept, it would be bold to assert; but when a thing is appointed to represent another, no matter how different, that first object be comes the regular representative or sign of the other. There is no analogy between the term bread and the farinaceous nutritive substance thereby signified; but because this term is used to express and represent that thing, every person thus understands it; and when the word bread is seen or heard, a perfect knowledge, not of the letters which compose that word, but of the thing signified by it, is conveyed to the mind. So the fringes, being appointed by God to represent and bring to mind the commandments of God, ver. 39, the mention or sight of them conveyed the intelligence intended. All the Jews wore these, and so probably did our Lord; see Matt. ix. 20, where the word kraspe on is rather to be understood of the fringe than of the hem of his garment.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 38. Speak unto the
    children of Israel , etc.] Whom it only concerned, and all of them, except women and children; for priests, Levites, Israelites, proselytes, and freed servants, were bound to wear the fringes, but not Gentiles; nor might the Gentiles make them, what were made by them were not to be used f211 , since it follows: and bid them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments, throughout their generations : the garments on which these fringes were put were such that were made either of linen or of woollen; no other were obliged to them by the law; but according to the Rabbins other garments were also, yet only square garments, which they call the Talith; and if that had not four skirts to it, it was free from them f212 : on this square garment, and the four corners or skirts of it, were the fringes put; which were a sort of pendants or tassels, which hung down from it, which consisted of eight white woollen threads, sometimes four, sometimes eight or twelve fingers broad f213 ; there were four of them, one at each skirt or corner of the garment: they were, as another writer says f214 , made of eight threads broad, each of them being knit to the middle with five knots, and of wool spun on purpose for this use; and these were to be wore by them throughout their generations until the Messiah came, and they seem to have been worn by him, ( Matthew 9:20) however, it is certain they were worn by the Pharisees in his time, ( Matthew 23:5); at present this four cornered garment is not any where in common use among the Jews, instead of which they wear, under their other garments, a kind of square frock, with the fringes or tassels fastened to it, and this they call Arbah Canfot; and in their schools, and at certain times of prayer, they put on a certain square woollen vestment, with the said pendants fastened at each corner, and this they call Talith f215 : and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a riband of blue ; or a blue lace, a piece of blue tape, which bound and kept the fringe tight and close, and being of a different colour, the fringe being white, made it the more conspicuous: the reason why this colour was used, the Jews say f216 , was, because it was like the sea, and the like the sky, and the sky like the throne of glory: this blue, hyacinth, or purple colour, as the Jews generally take it to be, was of a peculiar dye; the manner of making which is now unknown to them, and therefore they use only the white f217 .

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 37-41 - The people are ordered by the
    Lord to make fringes on the borders of their garments. The Jews were distinguished from their neighbours in their dress, as well as in their diet, and thus taught not to be conformed to the way of the heathen in other things. They proclaime themselves Jews wherever they were, as not ashamed of God and his law The fringes were not appointed for trimming and adorning their clothes but to stir up their minds by way of remembrance, 2Pe 3:1. If they wer tempted to sin, the fringe would warn them not to break God' commandments. We should use every means of refreshing our memories with the truths and precepts of God's word, to strengthen and quicken ou obedience, and arm our minds against temptation. Be holy unto your God cleansed from sin, and sincerely devoted to his service; and that grea reason for all the commandments is again and again repeated, "I am the Lord your God. __________________________________________________________________
