SEV Biblia, Chapter 15:30 Â¶ Mas la persona que hiciere algo a conciencia, así el natural como el extranjero, al SEÑOR injurió; y la tal persona será cortada de en medio de su pueblo.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Numbers 15:30 Verse 30. But the soul that doeth aught presumptuously] Bold daring acts of transgression against the fullest evidence, and in despite of the Divine authority, admitted of no atonement; the person was to be cut off-to be excluded from God's people, and from all their privileges and blessings.
Probably the presumption mentioned here implied an utter contempt of the word and authority of God, springing from an idolatrous or atheistical mind. In such a case all repentance was precluded, because of the denial of the word and being of God. It is probably a case similar to that mentioned Heb. vi. 4-8; x. 26-31; on which passages see the notes.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 30. But the soul that doeth [ought] presumptuously , etc.] Or with “an high hand” f206 , or through pride, as the Targum of Jonathan; in an haughty, insolent, bold and daring manner; in an obstinate, stubborn, self-willed way, with purpose and design, openly and publicly, neither fearing God nor regarding man: [whether he be] born in the land, or a stranger ; here a stranger as well signifies a proselyte of the gate as a proselyte of righteousness; seeing this presumptuous sinning may respect idolatry and blasphemy, which sins were punishable in proselytes of the gate by the magistrates of Israel as well as by the immediate hand of God: the same reproacheth the Lord ; by denying him to be the true Jehovah, by worshipping other gods, and by speaking in a blaspheming manner of him the true God; and indeed every presumptuous sin, which is committed in a bold and audacious manner, in contempt of God and defiance of his law, is a reproaching him the lawgiver, and a trampling upon his legislative power and authority: and that soul shall be cut off from among his people , either by the hand of the civil magistrate, upon conviction of him, or by the immediate hand of God; no sacrifice was to be offered for such, no atonement to be made or forgiveness to be had; (see Matthew 12:31,32).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 30-36 - Those are to be reckoned presumptuous sinners, who sin designedl against God's will and glory. Sins thus committed are exceedingl sinful. He that thus breaks the commandment reproaches the Lord. He also despises the word of the Lord. Presumptuous sinners despise it thinking themselves too great, too good, and too wise, to be ruled by it. A particular instance of presumption in the sin of sabbath-breakin is related. The offence was gathering sticks on the sabbath day, to make a fire, whereas the people were to bake and seethe what they ha occasion for, the day before, Ex 16:23. This was done as an affron both to the law and to the Lawgiver. God is jealous for the honour of his sabbaths, and will not hold him guiltless who profanes them whatever men may do. God intended this punishment for a warning to all to make conscience of keeping holy the sabbath. And we may be assure that no command was ever given for the punishment of sin, which, at the judgment day, shall not prove to have come from perfect love an justice. The right of God to a day of devotion to himself, will be disputed and denied only by such as listen to the pride and unbelief of their hearts, rather than to the teaching of the Spirit of truth an life. Wherein consists the difference between him who was detecte gathering sticks in the wilderness on the day of God, and the man wh turns his back upon the blessings of sabbath appointments, and the promises of sabbath mercies, to use his time, his cares, and his soul in heaping up riches; and waste his hours, his property, and his strength in sinful pleasure? Wealth may come by the unhallowed effort but it will not come alone; it will have its awful reward. Sinfu pursuits lead to ruin.
