    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:20

    Con su ciencia se partieron los abismos, y destilan el rocío los cielos.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 3:20

    Verse 20. By his
    knowledge the depths are broken up ] He determined in his wisdom how to break up the fountains of the great deep, so as to bring a flood of waters upon the earth; and by his knowledge those fissures in the earth through which springs of water arise have been appointed and determined; and it is by his skill and influence that vapours are exhaled, suspended in the atmosphere, and afterwards precipitated on the earth in rain, dews, &c. Thus the wisest of men attributes those effects which we suppose to spring from natural causes to the Supreme Being himself.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 20. By his
    knowledge the depths are broken up , etc.] From whence fountains and rivers flow, and whereby that great cavity was made which holds that large confluence of waters called the sea, ( Genesis 1:9,10).

    Some refer this to the breaking up the fountains of the great deep at the flood, ( Genesis 7:11); and others to the dividing of the waters of the Red sea when Israel came out of Egypt, ( Psalm 78:13); all wonderful works of divine wisdom, and show the greatness of him, in whom are “hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge”, ( Colossians 2:3), by whom they were done; and the clouds drop down the dew ; which makes the earth fruitful, and is put for all the blessings of nature, ( Genesis 27:28); the drops of dew are begotten by the Lord, they have no other father but him; the vanities of the Gentiles cannot produce them; he who fills the clouds with them, from whence they descend, is no other than the mighty God; and such is Christ the Wisdom of God. Some understand this in a mystical sense of Gospel ministers, and of the dew of Gospel doctrine, dropped and distilled by them under the influence and direction of Christ; see ( Deuteronomy 32:2); but the literal sense is best.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 13-20 - No precious jewels or earthly treasures are worthy to be compared with true wisdom, whether the concerns of time or eternity be considered. We must make wisdom our business; we must venture all in it, and be willing to part with all for it. This Wisdom is the Lord Jesus Chris and his salvation, sought and obtained by faith and prayer. Were it no for unbelief, remaining sinfulness, and carelessness, we should fin all our ways pleasantness, and our paths peace, for his are so; but we too often step aside from them, to our own hurt and grief. Christ is that Wisdom, by whom the worlds were made, and still are in being happy are those to whom he is made of God wisdom. He has wherewithal to make good all his promises.
