    SEV Biblia, Chapter 16:12

    ¶ Abominación es a los reyes hacer impiedad; porque con justicia será afirmado el trono.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 16:12

    Verse 12. It is an
    abomination to kings, &c. ] In all these verses the wise man refers to monarchical government rightly administered. And the proverbs on this subject are all plain.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 12. [It is] an
    abomination to kings to commit wickedness , etc.] The Targum is, “the abomination of kings are they that work wickedness.”

    It should be an abomination to kings to commit wickedness themselves, and those that do it should be abhorred by them, or they should show their resentment at it by removing them from their presence, or by punishing them: and though there have been such kings as David, ( <19A104> Psalm 101:4,7); yet there are but few such; this is not true of kings in common; and therefore rather expresses what they should be than what they are; but is perfectly applicable to Christ, who loves righteousness and hates iniquity, ( Psalm 45:7); for the throne is established by righteousness ; this is the support, strength, and security of every kingdom, and of the thrones of kings; and it is with judgment and righteousness that the throne of Christ is established; yea, justice and judgment are the habitation of his throne, ( Isaiah 9:7 Psalm 89:14).


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 12 - The ruler that uses his power aright, will find that to be his bes security.
