    SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:5

    Mas el que nos hizo para esto mismo, es Dios; el cual así mismo nos ha dado la prenda del Espíritu.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Corinthians 5:5

    Verse 5. Now he that hath
    wrought us for the selfsame thing] God has given us our being and our body for this very purpose, that both might be made immortal, and both be glorified together. Or, God himself has given us this insatiable hungering and thirsting after righteousness and immortality. Mr. Addison has made a beautiful paraphrase of the sense of the apostle, whether he had his words in view or not:- " - Whence this pleasing hope, this fond desire, This longing after immortality? Or whence this secret dread and inward horror Of falling into nought? Why shrinks the soul Back on herself, and startles at destruction? 'Tis the Divinity that stirs within us; 'Tis Heaven itself that points out an hereafter, And intimates eternity to man. - The soul, secured in her existence, smiles At the drawn dagger, and defies its point.

    The stars shall fade away, the sun himself Grow dim with age, and nature sink in years; But thou shalt flourish in immortal youth, Unhurt amidst the war of elements, The wreck of matter, and the crush of worlds." The earnest of the Spirit.] See the note on chap. i. 22.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 5. Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing , etc..] By the selfsame thing is meant, either the cross, the burden of sorrows and afflictions, under which the saints groan whilst here, which God has appointed them unto, and therefore to be bore patiently by them; or that glory and immortality, which they, as vessels of mercy, were prepared by him for from everlasting; for which their bodies and souls are formed by him in creation, and for which they are made meet in regeneration, by the curious workmanship of his Spirit and grace upon them: and seeing he is God, and not man, who hath wrought them for this, either by his secret purposes and preparations of grace in eternity, or by his open works of creation and regeneration in time; there is no doubt but they shall certainly enjoy it, since his counsels are immutable, and he is a rock, and his work is perfect; whatever he begins he finishes, nor is he ever frustrated of his end: one of Stephens's copies adds, and hath anointed us, which seems to have been transcribed from ( 2 Corinthians 1:21). Who also hath given us the earnest of the Spirit ; and therefore may be assured of possessing the inheritance, of which he is the earnest; (see Corinthians 1:22).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-8 - The
    believer not only is well assured by faith that there is anothe and a happy life after this is ended, but he has good hope, throug grace, of heaven as a dwelling-place, a resting-place, a hiding-place In our Father's house there are many mansions, whose Builder and Make is God. The happiness of the future state is what God has prepared for those that love him: everlasting habitations, not like the earthl tabernacles, the poor cottages of clay, in which our souls now dwell that are mouldering and decaying, whose foundations are in the dust The body of flesh is a heavy burden, the calamities of life are a heav load. But believers groan, being burdened with a body of sin, an because of the many corruptions remaining and raging within them. Deat will strip us of the clothing of flesh, and all the comforts of life as well as end all our troubles here below. But believing souls shal be clothed with garments of praise, with robes of righteousness an glory. The present graces and comforts of the Spirit are earnests of everlasting grace and comfort. And though God is with us here, by his Spirit, and in his ordinances, yet we are not with him as we hope to be. Faith is for this world, and sight is for the other world. It is our duty, and it will be our interest, to walk by faith, till we liv by sight. This shows clearly the happiness to be enjoyed by the soul of believers when absent from the body, and where Jesus makes known his glorious presence. We are related to the body and to the Lord; eac claims a part in us. But how much more powerfully the Lord pleads for having the soul of the believer closely united with himself! Thou ar one of the souls I have loved and chosen; one of those given to me What is death, as an object of fear, compared with being absent from the Lord!

    Wrought (katergasamenov). The compound is significant, indicating an accomplished fact. Through the various operations of His Spirit and the processes of His discipline, God has worked us out (Stanley, worked up) for this change. The process includes the dissolution of what is mortal no less than the renewal. The one is a step to the other. See 1 Corinthians xv. 36.

    Earnest of the Spirit. See on ch. i. 22, and compare Rom. viii. 11. Of the Spirit is appositional, the Spirit as the earnest.
