    SEV Biblia, Chapter 9:18

    Y no saben que allí están los muertos; que sus convidados están en los profundos de la sepultura.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 9:18

    Verse 18. But he knoweth not that the dead are there ] See on chap. ii. 18.

    He does not know that it was in this way the first apostates from God and truth walked. µyapr rephaim; gigantev, the GIANTS. - Septuagint. The sons of men, the earth-born, to distinguish them from the sons of God, those who were born from above. See the notes on Gen. vi. 1, &c.

    Her guests are in the depths of hell. - Those who have been drawn out of the way of understanding by profligacy have in general lost their lives, if not their souls, by their folly. The Septuagint, Syriac, and Arabic make a long addition to this verse: "But draw thou back, that thou mayest not die in this place; neither fix thy eyes upon her; so shalt thou pass by those strange waters. But abstain thou from strange waters, and drink not of another's fountain, that thou mayest live a long time, and that years may be added to thy life." Of this addition there is nothing in the Hebrew, the Chaldee, or the Vulgate, as now printed: but in the editio princeps are the following words:Qui enim applicabitur illi descendet ad inferos; nam qui abscesserit ab ea salvabitur. These words were in the copy from which my old MS. Bible has been made, as the following version proves: "Who forsoth schal ben joyned to hir, schal falle doun on to hell: for whi he that goth awai fro hir, schal be saved. Three of my own MSS. have the same reading.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 18. But he knoweth not that the dead [are] there , etc.] In the house of this foolish and wicked woman, into which she invites passengers to turn; the simple, that is persuaded by her, does not consider that there are none there to be his companions, but such who are dead in a moral or spiritual sense; that, though they live in pleasure, they are dead while they live. Aben Ezra refers this to “hell” in the next clause; where her guests are, and where those that are slain by her have their everlasting abode; and where the giants are, as the Vulgate Latin and Syriac versions; or the mighty ones she has cast down there, as the Targum; so the word “rephaim” sometimes signifies: and some think that reference is had to the giants of the old world, that corrupted their way on earth, and brought a deluge on it; (see Proverbs 7:26); [and that] her guests [are] in the depths of hell ; not only in the way to it, and on the brink of it, but in the very midst of it: there are many in hell she has invited into her house, and persuaded to turn in there, and commit fornication with her; and all that worship the beast, or commit spiritual adultery with the whore of Rome, will go down to perdition with her, and have their portion in hell fire, in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone; which they do not consider that are drawn into her idolatrous practices, ( Revelation 14:9-11).

    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 __________________________________________________________________
