    Ro 4:17 2Co 12:11

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:28

    y lo vil del mundo y lo menospreciado escogi Dios; y lo que no es, para deshacer lo que es,

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 1:28

    Verse 28. And base things-and things which are
    despised] It is very likely that the apostle refers here to the Gentiles and to the Gentile converts, who were considered base and despicable in the eyes of the Jews, who counted them no better than dogs, and who are repeatedly called the things that are not. By these very people, converted to Christianity, God has brought to nought all the Jewish pretensions; and by means of the Gentiles themselves, he has annihilated the whole Jewish polity; so that even Jerusalem itself was soon after this, trodden under foot of the Gentiles.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 28. And base things of the
    world , etc.] Who are reckoned the filth of the world, and the offscouring of all things; men of mean birth, education, and business of life: and things that are despised ; and set at nought, as poor persons generally are; yet God hath chosen them; even the poor of this world, rich in faith, and heirs of a kingdom: yea, and things which are not ; some think the Gentiles are here intended, who by the Jews are called things that are not: as in the apocryphal books: O Lord, give not thy sceptre unto them that be nothing, and let them not laugh at our fall; but turn their device upon themselves, and make him an example, that hath begun this against us. (Esther 14:11) 56 As for the other people, which also come of Adam, thou hast said that they are nothing, but be like unto spittle: and hast likened the abundance of them unto a drop that falleth from a vessel. 57 And now, O Lord, behold, these heathen, which have ever been reputed as nothing, have begun to be lords over us, and to devour us. (2 Esdras 6) See Gill on Romans 4:17 for note on non-entities, or such who are not in being, are meant; but who are not accounted of, or are reckoned as nothing; and these the Lord calls by his grace, as a fruit and evidence of electing love: to bring to nought things that are ; who, on the account of their noble birth, large possessions, and high attainments in knowledge and learning, thought themselves something; all which will one day be abolished, and will stand them in no stead with regard to future happiness and glory. The Jews f16 have a saying quite contrary to all this, that the Shekinah, or presence of God, does not dwell on any but upon a wise man, a mighty man, and a rich man.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 26-31 -
    God did not choose philosophers, nor orators, nor statesmen, nor men of wealth, and power, and interest in the world, to publish the gospel of grace and peace. He best judges what men and what measures serve the purposes of his glory. Though not many noble are usually called by Divine grace, there have been some such in every age, who have not bee ashamed of the gospel of Christ; and persons of every rank stand i need of pardoning grace. Often, a humble Christian, though poor as to this world, has more true knowledge of the gospel, than those who have made the letter of Scripture the study of their lives, but who have studied it rather as the witness of men, than as the word of God. An even young children have gained such knowledge of Divine truth as to silence infidels. The reason is, they are taught of God; the design is that no flesh should glory in his presence. That distinction, in whic alone they might glory, was not of themselves. It was by the sovereig choice and regenerating grace of God, that they were in Jesus Christ by faith. He is made of God to us wisdom, righteousness, sanctification and redemption; all we need, or can desire. And he is made wisdom to us, that by his word and Spirit, and from his fulness and treasures of wisdom and knowledge, we may receive all that will make us wise unt salvation, and fit for every service to which we are called. We ar guilty, liable to just punishment; and he is made righteousness, ou great atonement and sacrifice. We are depraved and corrupt, and he is made sanctification, that he may in the end be made complet redemption; may free the soul from the being of sin, and loose the bod from the bonds of the grave. And this is, that all flesh, according to the prophecy by Jeremiah, Jer 9:23-24, may glory in the special favour all-sufficient grace, and precious salvation of Jehovah __________________________________________________________________
