    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:21

    Porque los rectos habitarán la tierra, y los perfectos permanecerán en ella;

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 21. For the
    upright shall dwell in the land , etc.] Such as are upright in heart, who have a right spirit renewed in them; whose hearts are right with God, have the truth of grace in them; whose faith is unfeigned, their love without dissimulation, and their hope without hypocrisy; and who are upright in their lives and conversations; these being Israelites according to the flesh, as well as Israelites indeed in a spiritual sense, shall dwell in the land of Canaan, which the Lord promised to such, and which good men enjoyed by virtue of it: or the sense is, that such shall dwell peaceably and quietly in the world, and possess the good things of it, though in a small quantity, in such a comfortable manner, with the love of God and a sense of it, as wicked men do not; or else they shall inhabit the world to come, as Jarchi interprets it; not only a future state of happiness in heaven, but the Messiah’s kingdom on earth, the new heavens and new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness, ( 2 Peter 3:13); and the perfect shall remain in it ; or “be left in it” f49 ; or shall be “strengthened” f50 , confirmed, and established in it; or they shall dwell in it as a tent or tabernacle, bound with strong cords; see ( Isaiah 33:20); or continue there, when others should have no place in it, as follows. By the “perfect” are meant such as have all grace seminally implanted in them, though it is not come up to maturity; who have a perfection of parts, but not of degrees; are properly men in Christ, though they are not arrived to the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ; are perfectly holy in Christ, though not in themselves; and are perfectly justified by his righteousness, and perfectly comely through his comeliness, though as yet imperfect in themselves; and those that shall dwell in the new heavens and new earth, and remain there a thousand years, shall be entirely perfect in soul and body, wholly without sin; and complete in knowledge, holiness, and peace: the Targum renders it, who are “without spot”, undefiled persons; such who are not defiled with women, with the strange woman before mentioned; whose garments are not defiled, and who are free from the pollution of false doctrine, will worship, superstition, and idolatry, ( Revelation 3:4 14:4).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 10-22 - If we are truly
    wise, we shall be careful to avoid all evil company an evil practices. When wisdom has dominion over us, then it not onl fills the head, but enters into the heart, and will preserve, bot against corruptions within and temptations without. The ways of sin ar ways of darkness, uncomfortable and unsafe: what fools are those wh leave the plain, pleasant, lightsome paths of uprightness, to walk in such ways! They take pleasure in sin; both in committing it, and i seeing others commit it. Every wise man will shun such company. Tru wisdom will also preserve from those who lead to fleshly lusts, whic defile the body, that living temple, and war against the soul. Thes are evils which excite the sorrow of every serious mind, and caus every reflecting parent to look upon his children with anxiety, les they should be entangled in such fatal snares. Let the sufferings of others be our warnings. Our Lord Jesus deters from sinful pleasures, by the everlasting torments which follow them. It is very rare that an who are caught in this snare of the devil, recover themselves; so muc is the heart hardened, and the mind blinded, by the deceitfulness of this sin. Many think that this caution, besides the literal sense, is to be understood as a caution against idolatry, and subjecting the sou to the body, by seeking any forbidden object. The righteous must leav the earth as well as the wicked; but the earth is a very differen thing to them. To the wicked it is all the heaven they ever shall have to the righteous it is the place of preparation for heaven. And is in all one to us, whether we share with the wicked in the miseries of their latter end, or share those everlasting joys that shall crow believers __________________________________________________________________
