    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:9

    Fiel es Dios, por el cual sois llamados a la confraternidad de su Hijo, Jess, el Cristo, Seor nuestro.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 1:9

    Verse 9.
    God is faithful] The faithfulness of God is a favourite expression among the ancient Jews; and by it they properly understand the integrity of God in preserving whatever is entrusted to him. And they suppose that in this sense the fidelity of man may illustrate the fidelity of God, in reference to which they tell the two following stories. "Rabbi Phineas, the son of Jair, dwelt in a certain city, whither some men came who had two measures of barley, which they desired him to preserve for them. They afterwards forgot their barley and went away. Rabbi Phineas each year sowed the barley, reaped, thrashed, and laid it up in his granary.

    When seven years had elapsed the men returned, and desired to have the barley with which they had entrusted him. Rabbi Phineas recollected them, and said, 'Come and take your treasure,' i.e. the barley they had left, with all that it had produced for seven years. Thus, from the faithfulness of man ye may know the faithfulness of God."Rabbi Simeon, the son of Shetach, bought an ass from some Edomites, at whose neck his disciples saw a diamond hanging; they said unto him, Rabbi, the blessing of the Lord maketh rich, Prov. x. 22. But he answered: The ass I have bought, but the diamond I have not bought; therefore he returned the diamond to the Edomites. Thus, from the fidelity of man ye may know the fidelity of God." This was an instance of rare honesty, not to be paralleled among the Jews of the present day, and probably among few Gentiles. Whatever is committed to the keeping of God he will most carefully preserve; for he is faithful.

    Unto the fellowship, &c.] eiv koinwnian, Into the communion or participation of Christ, in the graces of his Spirit and the glories of his future kingdom. God will continue to uphold and save you, if you entrust your bodies and souls to him. But can it be said that God will keep what is either not entrusted to him; or, after being entrusted, is taken away?


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 9. God is faithful, by whom ye were called , etc.] These words contain arguments, assuring the saints of their confirmation in grace, and of their being preserved blameless to the day of Christ, taken from the faithfulness of God, who is always true to his promises: whatever he has said, he will do it; he will never suffer his faithfulness to fail; and since he has made so many promises concerning the establishment of his people, and their perseverance to grace, they may assure themselves of them; and also from his having called them by his grace, for whom he effectually calls by his grace, he glorifies; and particularly from his having called them unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord ; to partake of his grace, and to be heirs of glory with him; to enjoy communion with him in private and public exercises of religion, which is an evidence of being in him, and of union to him; for it is not merely into the fellowship of his saints or churches, but into the fellowship of his Son they are said to be called; and such are members of Christ, of his body, of his flesh, and of his bone; and shall never be lost and perish, but shall be confirmed to the end; be preserved in him blameless, and presented to him faultless, and have everlasting life.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-9 - All
    Christians are by baptism dedicated and devoted to Christ, and ar under strict obligations to be holy. But in the true church of God ar all who are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, and wh call upon him as God manifest in the flesh, for all the blessings of salvation; who acknowledge and obey him as their Lord, and as Lord of all; it includes no other persons. Christians are distinguished from the profane and atheists, that they dare not live without prayer; an they are distinguished from Jews and pagans, that they call on the nam of Christ. Observe how often in these verses the apostle repeats the words, Our Lord Jesus Christ. He feared not to make too frequent or to honourable mention of him. To all who called upon Christ, the apostl gave his usual salutation, desiring, in their behalf, the pardonin mercy, sanctifying grace, and comforting peace of God, through Jesu Christ. Sinners can have no peace with God, nor any from him, but through Christ. He gives thanks for their conversion to the faith of Christ; that grace was given them by Jesus Christ. They had bee enriched by him with all spiritual gifts. He speaks of utterance an knowledge. And where God has given these two gifts, he has given grea power for usefulness. These were gifts of the Holy Ghost, by which God bore witness to the apostles. Those that wait for the coming of ou Lord Jesus Christ, will be kept by him to the end; and those that ar so, will be blameless in the day of Christ, made so by rich and fre grace. How glorious are the hopes of such a privilege; to be kept by the power of Christ, from the power of our corruptions and Satan' temptations!

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    9.
    Faithful (pistov). Emphatic, and therefore first in the sentence. See on 1 John i. 9; Apoc. i. 5; iii. 14. Compare 2 Tim. ii. 13.

    Ye were called (eklhqhte). See on Rom. iv. 17.

    Fellowship (koinwnian). See on 1 John i. 3; Acts ii. 42; Luke v. 10.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    1:9 {God is faithful} (pistos ho qeos). this is the ground of Paul's confidence as he loves to say (#1Th 5:24; 1Co 10:13; Ro 8:36; Php 1:16). God will do what he has promised. {Through whom} (di' hou). God is the agent (di') of their call as in #Ro 11:36 and also the ground or reason for their call (di' hon) in #Heb 2:10. {Into the fellowship} (eis koinwnian). Old word from koinwnos, partner for partnership, participation as here and #2Co 13:13f.; Php 2:1; 3:10. qen it means fellowship or intimacy as in #Ac 2:42; Ga 2:9; 2Co 6:14; 1Jo 1:3,7. And particularly as shown by contribution as in #2Co 8:4; 9:13; Php 1:5. It is high fellowship with Christ both here and hereafter.
