SEV Biblia, Chapter 9:16 Cualquier simple, venga acá. A los faltos de entendimiento dijo:
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 9:16 Verse 16. Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither ] FOLLY or PLEASURE here personified, uses the very same expressions as employed by Wisdom, ver. 4. Wisdom says, "Let the simple turn in to me." No, says Folly, "Let the simple turn in to me." If he turn in to Wisdom, his folly shall be taken away and he shall become wise; if he turn in to Foliy, his darkness will be thickened, and his folly will remain.
Wisdom sets up her school to instruct the ignorant: Folly sets her school up next door, to defeat the designs of Wisdom.
Thus the saying of the satirist appears to be verified: ] "Wherever God erects a house of prayer, The devil surely builds a chapel there.
And it is found upon examination, The latter has the larger congregation." DE FOE.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 16. Whoso [is] simple, let him turn in hither , etc.] The harlot’s house, Popish chapels and churches. She uses the same form of words that Wisdom does, ( Proverbs 9:4); having a form of godliness, a show of religion, but without the power of it; her priests are wolves in sheep’s clothing, and speak lies in hypocrisy: and such that she fixes upon as proper persons to work on are the simple, the credulous and unwary; who are not on their guard, and are easily persuaded and imposed on; and [as for] him that wanteth understanding ; is not well grounded in the principles of Christianity he professes; has not a spiritual and experimental understanding of them: she saith to him ; addresses him in such language as follows:
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 13-18 - How diligent the tempter is, to seduce unwary souls into sin! Carnal sensual pleasure, stupifies conscience, and puts out the sparks of conviction. This tempter has no solid reason to offer; and where sh gets dominion in a soul, all knowledge of holy things is lost an forgotten. She is very violent and pressing. We need to seek and pra for true wisdom, for Satan has many ways to withdraw our souls from Christ. Not only worldly lusts and abandoned seducers prove fatal to the souls of men; but false teachers, with doctrines that flatter prid and give liberty to lusts, destroy thousands. They especially draw of such as have received only partial serious impressions. The depths of Satan are depths of hell; and sin, without remorse, is ruin, rui without remedy. Solomon shows the hook; those that believe him, wil not meddle with the bait. Behold the wretched, empty, unsatisfying deceitful, and stolen pleasure sin proposes; and may our souls be s desirous of the everlasting enjoyment of Christ, that on earth we ma live to him, daily, by faith, and ere long be with him in glory __________________________________________________________________
