    SEV Biblia, Chapter 18:18

    ΒΆ La suerte pone fin a los pleitos, y desparte los fuertes.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 18:18

    Verse 18. The lot causeth contentions to cease ] See note on chap. xvi. 33.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 18. The lot causeth contentions to cease , etc.] When a
    case cannot be determined among parties at variance in a private way, nor in a court of judicature, the lot is cast, and that puts an end to all strife, and makes each party easy; they submit to it, and acquiesce in it; and parteth between the mighty ; the kings and princes of the earth; men of great power and authority, and of great riches and affluence; and so in a capacity of contending with each other, and of prolonging the contention, which may be attended with bad consequences; and who are not easily dissuaded from it: or it may intend such who most vehemently disagree; persons of great spirits, who are obstinate and stubborn, and will by no means yield, and there is no parting them by arguments or legal decisions; these the lot parts, and causes them to cease from their quarrels and contentions, and to rest satisfied with the distributions the lot makes to them; as the children of Israel were with their portion of the land of Canaan, assigned them by lot.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 18 - It was customary sometimes to refer matters to
    God, by casting lots with solemn prayer. The profaning the lot, by using it in matters of diversion, or coveting what belongs to others, forms an objection to this now.
