    SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:5

    porque por la palabra de Dios y por la oracin es santificado.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Timothy 4:5

    Verse 5. For it is sanctified by the word of
    God] dia logou qeou? By the command of God; probably referring to Gen. i. x19: And God said, I have given you every herb-and every tree-to you it shall be for meat; and to chap. ix. 3: Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things; i.e. I have given you every animal that is proper for food, as I have given you every herb and fruit proper for nourishment. Therefore, all this was sanctified, set apart, and appropriated to this use by this command. And when man is about to use it, he is to sanctify or set it apart to that use by prayer to God, 1. That it may "answer the end to us for which it was designed; 2. That we may use it with gratitude and moderation; 3. That all the strength derived from it may be devoted to God, in filling up the duties of those situations in which his providence has placed us. Those who thank not God for their food, and pray not for his blessing in the use of it, are unworthy even of a morsel of bread, and of the breath they breathe. Bishop Newton's opinion of this prophecy I have reserved to the end of this chapter.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 5. For it is sanctified , etc.] Or set apart for use, and may be lawfully used at all times: by the word of
    God ; which declares that there is nothing in itself common, or unclean, or unfit for use, and that nothing that goes into a man defiles him; so that by virtue of this word of God, every creature may be made use of, that is fit for food: or else this designs the word of God, which gives a blessing to what is eaten; for it is not by bread or meat only, but through the word of God commanding a blessing on what is eaten, that man lives, ( Matthew 4:4) and therefore this blessing upon our food should be asked for: wherefore it follows, and prayer ; this being used before eating for a blessing on the food, and after it, in a way of thanksgiving for it, sanctifies every creature of God, or gives men a free use of any, or all of them. So the Israelites, when they had eaten, and were full, were to bless the Lord, ( Deuteronomy 8:10). And thus our Lord Jesus Christ, at meals, used to take the food, and bless it or ask a blessing on it, ( Matthew 14:19). And so did the Essenes among the Jews f56 , and the Christians in Tertullian's time; and the practice is highly necessary and commendable, nor ought it to be disused.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-5 - The
    Holy Spirit, both in the Old and the New Testament, spoke of general turning from the faith of Christ, and the pure worship of God This should come during the Christian dispensation, for those ar called the latter days. False teachers forbid as evil what God ha allowed, and command as a duty what he has left indifferent. We fin exercise for watchfulness and self-denial, in attending to the requirements of God's law, without being tasked to imaginary duties which reject what he has allowed. But nothing justifies an intemperat or improper use of things; and nothing will be good to us, unless we seek by prayer for the Lord's blessing upon it.

    Greek Textus Receptus

    37 5743 γαρ 1063 δια 1223 λογου 3056 θεου 2316 και 2532 εντευξεως 1783

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    5. It is sanctified (agiazetai). Not declared holy, but made holy. The declaration confirms the last clause of ver. 4. Thanksgiving to
    God has a sanctifying effect. The food in itself has no moral quality (Rom. xiv. 14), but acquires a holy quality by its consecration to God; by being acknowledged as God's gift, and partaken of as nourishing the life for God's service. Comp. Paul's treatment of the unbelieving husband and the believing wife, 1 Cor. vii. 14.

    By the word of God (dia logou qeou). That is, by the word of God as used in the prayer. Scripture is not called "the Word of God." The Word of God includes much more than Scripture: but Scripture contains the Word of God, and the thanksgiving at table was in the words of Scripture. See Psalm cxlv. 15,16. The custom of grace at meat appears 1 Sam. ix. 13. Christ blessed the loaves and fishes (Matthews xiv. 19; xv. 36): Paul on the ship gave thanks for the meal which the seamen ate (Acts xxvii. 35). Enteuxewv prayer, see on ch. ii. 1.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    4:5 {It is sanctified} (hagiazetai). Present passive indicative of hagiazw, here "rendered holy" rather than "declared holy." Cf. verse #4. {Through the word of God and prayers} (dia logou qeou kai enteuxews). See #2:1 for enteuxis. Paul seems to refer to genesis 1. It is almost a hendiadys "by the use of Scripture in prayer."
