    SEV Biblia, Chapter 15:56

    Ya que el aguijn de la muerte es el pecado, y la potencia del pecado, la ley.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 15:56

    Verse 56. The
    sting of death is sin] The apostle explains himself particularly here: death could not have entered into the world if sin had not entered first; it was sin that not only introduced death, but has armed him with all his destroying force; the goad or dagger of death is sin; by this both body and soul are slain.

    The strength of sin is the law.] The law of God forbids all transgression, and sentences those who commit it to temporal and eternal death. Sin has its controlling and binding power from the law. The law curses the transgressor, and provides no help for him; and if nothing else intervene, he must, through it, continue ever under the empire of death.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 56. The sting of death is sin , etc.] Death has a sting, and which was originally in it, and that is sin; sin is the cause of death, it is what has given rise and being to it; it entered into the world by it, and is supported in its empire through it; it gives it its resistless power, which reaches to all sorts of persons, young and old, rich and poor, high and low, bond and free; it gives it all its bitterness, agonies, and miseries; and it is by that it does all the hurt and mischief it does; and it may fitly be compared to a sting, for its poisonous and venomous nature: and the strength of sin is the law ; not that the law of God is sinful, or encourages sin: it forbids it under the severest penalty; but was there no law there would be no sin, nor imputation of it; sin is a transgression of the law: moreover, the strength of sin, its evil nature, and all the dreadful aggravations of it, and sad consequences upon it, are discovered and made known by the law; and also the strength of it is drawn out by it, through the corruption of human nature; which is irritated and provoked the more to sin, through the laws prohibition of it; and this is not the fault of the law, but is owing to the vitiosity of nature; which the more it is forbidden anything, the more desirous it is of it; to which may be added, that sin is the more exceeding sinful, being committed against a known law, and that of the great lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy; whose legislative power and authority are slighted and trampled upon by it, which makes the transgression the more heinous; it is the law which binds sin upon a mans conscience, accuses him of it, pronounces him guilty, curses, condemns, and adjudges him to death for it.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 51-58 - All the
    saints should not die, but all would be changed. In the gospel many truths, before hidden in mystery, are made known. Death neve shall appear in the regions to which our Lord will bear his rise saints. Therefore let us seek the full assurance of faith and hope that in the midst of pain, and in the prospect of death, we may thin calmly on the horrors of the tomb; assured that our bodies will ther sleep, and in the mean time our souls will be present with the Redeemer. Sin gives death all its hurtful power. The sting of death in sin; but Christ, by dying, has taken out this sting; he has mad atonement for sin, he has obtained remission of it. The strength of sin is the law. None can answer its demands, endure its curse, or do awa his own transgressions. Hence terror and anguish. And hence death is terrible to the unbelieving and the impenitent. Death may seize believer, but it cannot hold him in its power. How many springs of jo to the saints, and of thanksgiving to God, are opened by the death an resurrection, the sufferings and conquests of the Redeemer! In vers #(58), we have an exhortation, that believers should be stedfast, fir in the faith of that gospel which the apostle preached, and the received. Also, to be unmovable in their hope and expectation of thi great privilege, of being raised incorruptible and immortal. And to abound in the work of the Lord, always doing the Lord's service, an obeying the Lord's commands. May Christ give us faith, and increase ou faith, that we may not only be safe, but joyful and triumphant __________________________________________________________________

    15:56 {The
    power of sin} (he dunamis tes hamartias). See #Ro 4:15; 5:20; 6:14; 7; Ga 2:16; 3:1-5:4 for Paul's ideas here briefly expressed. In man's unrenewed state he cannot obey God's holy law.
