    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:19

    el atesorar para sí buen fundamento para en lo por venir, que echen mano a la vida eterna.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Timothy 6:19

    Verse 19. Laying up in store for themselves a good
    foundation] St. Paul seems to have borrowed this form of speech from Tobit. See chap. iv. 8, i10: If thou hast abundance, give alms accordingly: if thou hast but a little, be not afraid to give according to that little: for thou treasurest up a good reward for thyself against the day of necessity. qema rar agaqon qhsaurizeiv seautw eiv hmeran anagkhv. The apostle says: apoqhsaurizontav eautoiv qemelion kalon eiv to mellon, ina epilabwntai thv aiwniou zwhv "Treasuring up a good foundation to them for the future, that they may lay hold on eternal life." The sentiment is the same in both writers; the words nearly so; and the meaning is simply this, as it is judiciously paraphrased by Mr. J. Wesley in his note on this passage: "Treasuring up for themselves a good foundation, of an abundant reward by the free mercy of God, that they may lay hold on eternal life.

    This cannot be done by almsdeeds; yet, they come up for a memorial before God; Acts x. 4. And the lack even of this may be the cause why God will withhold grace and salvation from us." Christ has said: Blessed are the merciful for they shall obtain mercy. They who have not been merciful according to their power, shall not obtain mercy; they that have, shall obtain mercy: and yet the eternal life which they obtain they look for from the mercy of God through Jesus Christ.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 19. Laying up in store for themselves . etc.] Laying up a treasure in heaven, which will be for themselves to enjoy to all eternity; whereas what they lay up here is for others, for their children or friends, and sometimes for strangers, and they know not who, whether for a wise man or a fool, yea, even for enemies: so it is said of King Munbaz, when he dispersed his father's treasures to the poor, his brethren and friends came about him, complaining of it; to whom he said f93 my fathers treasured up below, I treasure up above. My fathers treasured up for others, I treasure up ymx[l , for myself; my fathers treasured up for this world, I treasure up for the world to come.

    So it follows here, a good foundation against the time to come ; by which is meant, not a foundation of happiness, for that is laid already, and by God himself; and much less by doing acts of beneficence is that foundation laid; for there is no other foundation of happiness, life, and salvation, that can be laid, besides what is laid, which is Jesus Christ: nor is the apostle speaking of laying a foundation here, to build upon, but of laying up a foundation in heaven, by which he intends happiness itself; and which he calls a foundation, because it is solid and substantial, permanent and durable, in opposition to the uncertain, precarious, transitory, and perishing enjoyments and treasures of this life; and good , because profitable, when the laying up of worldly riches is often to the hurt of its owners, and will be useful, when they will not profit; and besides, will always continue, and be a foundation that will always support them, and never give way: now to lay up this is no other than to seek those things which are above, to show a concern for them, and to set the affections on them, and live in the comfortable hope and expectation of enjoying them. The phrase is the same with that in ( Matthew 6:19,20) and takes in a regard to spiritual riches, the riches of grace flow, such as sanctifying, justifying, and pardoning grace through Christ; which will be a good foundation against the time to come ; and will give both a right and meetness for the enjoyment of the heavenly treasures, which will be for futurity, even to all eternity. That they may lay hold on eternal life ; not by way of merit, but as the free gift of God, which the riches of grace give a title to, and a fitness for; and which shall be laid hold upon, and enjoyed by all that seek the true riches.

    The Alexandrian copy, the Vulgate Latin, Syriac, and Ethiopic versions, read, true life; for the present life is rather a show, an appearance of life, than life itself.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 17-21 - Being rich in this world is wholly different from being rich toward God. Nothing is more uncertain than worldly wealth. Those who are rich must see that God gives them their riches; and he only can give to enjoy them richly; for many have riches, but enjoy them poorly, no having a heart to use them. What is the best estate worth, more than a it gives opportunity of doing the more good? Showing faith in Christ by fruits of love, let us lay hold on eternal life, when the self-indulgent, covetous, and ungodly around, lift up their eyes in torment. That learning which opposes the truth of the gospel, is no true science, or real knowledge, or it would approve the gospel, an consent to it. Those who advance reason above faith, are in danger of leaving faith. Grace includes all that is good, and grace is a earnest, a beginning of glory; wherever God gives grace, he will giv glory __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    19. Laying up in store (apoqhsaurizontav). N.T.o Laying away (apo).
    Eternal life (thv ontwv zwhv). More correctly, the life which is life indeed, or that which is truly life. See on ch. v. 3.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    6:19 {Laying up in store} (apoqesaurizontas). Late literary word (apo and qesaurizw), only here in N.T. Same paradox as in #Mt 6:19f., "laying up in store" by giving it away. {Which is
    life indeed} (tes ontws zwes). See #5:3 for ontws. this life is merely the shadow of the eternal reality to come.
