SEV Biblia, Chapter 29:8 Â¶ Los hombres burladores enlazan la ciudad; mas los sabios apartan la ira.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 8. Scornful men bring a city into a snare , etc.] Such as despise dominion, speak evil of dignities; proud and haughty men, that speak Loftily, and with a contempt of their superiors; or who make a mock at religion, and scoff at all that is good and serious; these bring the inhabitants of a city into a snare, to rebel against their governors, and so into mischief and ruin: or, they “burn a city”, as the Septuagint and Syriac versions f809 ; they inflame it, or blow it up into a flame; raise a combustion in it, and fill it with strifes and contentions; and bring down the wrath of God upon it, like fire: or, they “blow upon a city” f810 ; raise storms and tempests in it; turn all things upside down, and throw it into the utmost confusion, or blow it up; but wise [men] turn away wrath ; the wrath of men, by their wise counsels and advice, and appease tumults and seditions, and restore things to a quiet and settled state; or the wrath of God, by interposing with their prayers between him and a sinful people, as Moses did, ( <19A623> Psalm 106:23).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 8 - The scornful mock at things sacred and serious. Men who promot religion, which is true wisdom, turn away the wrath of God.
