    SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:13

    Mas porque tenemos el mismo Espíritu de fe, conforme a lo que est escrito: Creí, por lo cual tambin habl, nosotros tambin creemos, por lo cual tambin hablamos,

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Corinthians 4:13

    Verse 13. We having the same spirit of
    faith] As David had when he wrote Psa. cxvi. 10: I believed, therefore have I spoken: we also believe that we shall receive the fulfillment of all God's promises; and being fully convinced of the truth of the Christian religion, we speak and testify that our deliverance is from God; and that he does not fail those who trust in him, and that he saves to the uttermost them who come unto him through Christ Jesus.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 13. We having the same Spirit of
    faith , etc..] By faith here is meant, not the doctrine, but the grace of faith; a believing in the doctrines of the Gospel, and in the person of Christ; an exercise of that grace upon the death and resurrection of Christ; and particularly a looking by faith in full expectation of the saints' resurrection from the dead, and eternal glory, together with a reliance on the power, faithfulness, and promises of God to support under the afflictions of this life. Now of this faith the Spirit of God is the author; this is not of ourselves, of our own power, it is the free gift of God, and a valuable gift it is; it is of the operation of God, and the produce of his almighty power; and of this the Spirit of God, in conversion, is the powerful operator: hence he is here called the Spirit of faith. So the third number in the Cabalistic tree of the Jews, the intelligence sanctifying, which answers to the third person in our doctrine of the Trinity, is called f46 , mwa hnwma and hnwmah ba , the artificer of faith, and the author or parent of faith, because from its power faith flows.

    Which is the same in all saints; the Spirit is the same in one as in another, and so is the faith which he is the author of; (see 2 Peter 1:1). Faith is the same in all the saints that have been from the beginning of the world, under the Old and New Testament dispensations; it was the same in all the churches in the apostle's time, in Rome as at Ephesus, in Ephesus as at Rome, and in Thessalonica as at Rome and Ephesus, and so in all the other churches; though it may be, the apostle may chiefly design the sameness of faith, and of the Spirit, in him and his fellow ministers, and in these Corinthians, though death was working in the one, and life in the other; which appeared in their free and bold ministration of the word, notwithstanding all they met with on account of it, in imitation and encouraged by the example of David, according as it is written , ( <19B610> Psalm 116:10). I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak : where there is true faith, and the true Spirit of faith, there will be a speaking of, for, and in the name of Christ, as there ought to be: for as with the heart man believeth unto righteousness, so with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. This is true of believers in common, sooner or later, at one time or another; but more especially of the ministers of the word, who have a firm and well grounded belief in the doctrines of the Gospel, and person of Christ; and therefore speak freely, and without any doubt and hesitation about these things, boldly, and without the fear of men, and sincerely and faithfully, as in the sight of God: hence they make Christ the main subject of their ministry, because they believe in him, and nothing can stop their mouths from speaking of him; faith, and a spirit of faith, fit for public work and service, and give freedom and boldness in the ministration of the Gospel, and are a great support under persecution for the sake of it.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 13-18 - The grace of faith is an effectual remedy against fainting in times of trouble. They knew that Christ was raised, and that his resurrectio was an earnest and assurance of theirs. The hope of this resurrectio will encourage in a suffering day, and set us above the fear of death Also, their sufferings were for the advantage of the church, and to God's glory. The sufferings of Christ's ministers, as well as their preaching and conversation, are for the good of the church and the glory of God. The prospect of eternal life and happiness was their support and comfort. What sense was ready to pronounce heavy and long grievous and tedious, faith perceived to be light and short, and but for a moment. The weight of all temporal afflictions was lightnes itself, while the glory to come was a substance, weighty, and lastin beyond description. If the apostle could call his heavy an long-continued trials light, and but for a moment, what must ou trifling difficulties be! Faith enables to make this right judgment of things. There are unseen things, as well as things that are seen. An there is this vast difference between them; unseen things are eternal seen things but temporal, or temporary only. Let us then look off from the things which are seen; let us cease to seek for worldly advantages or to fear present distresses. Let us give diligence to make our futur happiness sure __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    13. The same spirit of
    faith. The same, namely, which is set forth in the following passage. Spirit of faith: not distinctly the Holy Spirit, nor, on the other hand, a human faculty or disposition, but blending both; faith as a gift of the Spirit of God. See on Spirit, Rom. viii. 4, sec. 5. I believed, etc. Cited from Sept., Psalm cxv. 10. The Septuagint mistranslates the Hebrew, which is, "I believed though I said," etc.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    4:13 {According to that which is written} (kata to gegrammenon). this formula in
    legal documents in the papyri (_Bible Studies_, p. 250). Paul makes adaptation of the words in #Ps 95:1. {We also believe} (kai hemeis pisteuomen). Like the Psalmist. And therefore can speak with effect. Otherwise useless. {Shall present us with you} (kai parastesei sun hemin). this shows that Paul was not certain that he would be alive when Jesus comes as has been wrongly inferred from #1Co 7:29; 10:11; 15:51.
