    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:7

    sino hablamos sabiduría de Dios en misterio, la sabiduría ocultada; la cual Dios predestin antes de los siglos para nuestra gloria;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 2:7

    Verse 7. The
    wisdom of God in a mystery] The GOSPEL of Jesus Christ, which had been comparatively hidden from the foundation of the world, (the settling of the Jewish economy, as this phrase often means,) though appointed from the beginning to be revealed in the fullness of time. For, though this Gospel was, in a certain sense, announced by the prophets, and prefigured by the law, yet it is certain that even the most intelligent of the Jewish rulers, their doctors, scribes, and Pharisees, had no adequate knowledge of it; therefore it was still a mystery to them and others, till it was so gloriously revealed by the preaching of the apostles.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 7. But we speak the
    wisdom of God , etc.] Not of men, not of the wise politicians, the learned philosophers and Rabbins; that which human wisdom has no hand in forming, nor in revealing, nor in propagating, and which is disliked and disapproved of by it: the Gospel is the sole produce of divine wisdom, and in which there is a glorious display of it; even in those doctrines which are the most charged with folly, as salvation by a crucified Christ, justification by his righteousness, pardon by his blood, satisfaction by his sacrifice, etc. in a mystery ; it is mysterious wisdom. The Gospel is full of mysteries; there is the mystery of God, of a trinity of persons in the divine essence; the mystery of Christ, of his person, as God manifest in the flesh, of his divine sonship, and incarnation in the womb of a virgin; the mystery of the Spirits grace in regeneration, of the saints union to Christ, and communion with him, the resurrection of the same body, the change of living saints at Christs coming, with many others: even the hidden wisdom ; the Gospel lay hid in God, in the thoughts of his heart, in the deep things of his mind, the counsels of his will, and purposes of his grace; it was hid in Christ, in whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge; it was hid under the types and shadows of the ceremonial law; and is hid in the Scriptures, which must be diligently searched for it, as for hidden treasures. It was hid from angels, and from Adam, until revealed; it was in some measure hid from the Jews under the former dispensation, to whom it was made known; and in some sense from believers, under the present dispensation, who as yet know it but in part; and is entirely hid from natural men, even from the most wise and prudent among them. This epithet expresses the preciousness, secrecy, and also security of the Gospel; hidden things being commonly of value, and being kept secret, are also safe; hidden and secret wisdom has been always esteemed, both by Greeks and Jews: hence that saying of the latter, he that would be rich in learning of the law, ayh hmkjhy and that wisdom which is hidden, in a hidden and secret place, should hide and secrete himself from the children of men.

    The apostle adds, which God ordained before the world . The Egyptians and Grecians boasted much of the earliness of their wisdom, but neither of them are to be mentioned with the Gospel for the antiquity of it; it is the birth of Gods counsels of old, the produce of his purposes, which he purposed in Christ before the world was; a scheme of things he drew in his eternal mind; it is a transcript of the council of peace and covenant of grace, which were from everlasting; what the Jews say of the law, is much more true of the Gospel, that it was treasured up with God (they say two thousand years, and sometimes nine hundred and seventy four ages), before the world was created; and often speak of it as one of the seven things created before the world was f22 . Moreover, this was to our glory; under the present dispensation, which by reason of the Gospel has a glory in it surpassing the former; it is to the glory both of the ministers of it, whose honour it is to be employed in preaching it, and in being by it the instruments of converting such who will be their glory another day, and to the glory of all believers who are by it called to the obtaining of the glory of Christ Jesus.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 6-9 - Those who receive the doctrine of Christ as Divine, and, having bee enlightened by the Holy Spirit, have looked well into it, see not onl the plain history of Christ, and him crucified, but the deep an admirable designs of Divine wisdom therein. It is the mystery mad manifest to the saints, Col 1:26, though formerly hid from the heathe world; it was only shown in dark types and distant prophecies, but no is revealed and made known by the Spirit of God. Jesus Christ is the Lord of glory; a title much too great for any creature. There are man things which people would not do, if they knew the wisdom of God in the great work of redemption. There are things God hath prepared for thos that love him, and wait for him, which sense cannot discover, n teaching can convey to our ears, nor can it yet enter our hearts. We must take them as they stand in the Scriptures, as God hath bee pleased to reveal them to us.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    7. In a
    mystery. Connect with we speak. See on Matt. xiii. 11; Romans xi. 25. 80 The in (en) has a kind of instrumental force: by means of a mystery; i.e., by delivering a doctrine hidden from the human understanding and revealed to us by God.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    2:7 {
    God's wisdom in a mystery} (qeou sofian en musteriwi). Two points are here sharply made. It is God's wisdom (note emphatic position of the genitive qeou) in contrast to the wisdom of this age. Every age of the world has a conceit of its own and it is particularly true of this twentieth century, but God's wisdom is eternal and superior to the wisdom of any age or time. God's wisdom is alone absolute. See on 2:1 for mystery. It is not certain whether {in a mystery} is to be taken with {wisdom} or {we speak}. The result does not differ greatly, probably with {wisdom}, so long a secret and now at last revealed (#Col 1:26; 2Th 2:7). {That hath been hidden} (ten apokekrummenen). See #Ro 16:25; Col 1:26; Eph 3:5. Articular perfect passive participle of apokruptw, more precisely defining the indefinite sofian (wisdom). {Foreordained before the worlds} (prowrisen pro twn aiwnwn). this relative clause (hen) defines still more closely God's wisdom. Note pro with both verb and substantive (aiwnwn). Constative aorist of God's elective purpose as shown in Christ crucified (#1Co 1:18-24). "It was no afterthought or change of plan" (Robertson and Plummer). {Unto our glory} (eis doxan hemwn). "The glory of inward enlightenment as well as of outward exaltation" (Lightfoot).
