    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:18

    y ser a vosotros Padre, y vosotros me seris a mí hijos e hijas, dice el Seor Todopoderoso.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Corinthians 6:18

    Verse 18. Will be a
    Father unto you] I will act towards you as the most affectionate father can act towards his most tender and best beloved child.

    And ye shall be my sons and daughters] Ye shall all be of the household of God, the family of heaven; ye shall be holy, happy, and continually safe.

    Saith the Lord Almighty.] kuriov pantokratwr The Lord, the Governor of all things.

    Earthly fathers, however loving and affectionate, may fail to provide for their children, because every thing is not at their disposal; they may frequently lack both the power and the means, though to will may be present with them; but the Lord who made and who governs all things can never lack will, power, nor means. The promise is sure to the children; and the children are those who take the Almighty for their God. For the promise belongs to no soul that is not separate from sinful ways, works, and men; those who touch the unclean thing, i.e. who do what God forbids, and hold communion with unrighteousness, can never stand in the endearing relation of children to God Almighty: and this is most forcibly stated by God himself, in these verses, and in the beginning of the following chapter, the first verse of which should conclude this.

    To the Jews the promises were originally made; they would not have God for their God, but would work iniquity. What was the consequence? God cast them off; and those who were joined to iniquity were separated from him. "Then said God, Call his name Lo-ammi; for ye are not my people, and I will not be your God." Hos. i. 9. The Jews were therefore cast off, and the Gentiles taken in their place; but even these, under the new covenant, are taken in expressly under the same conditions as the apostle here most fully states. Those who apply these words in any other way pervert their meaning, and sin against their souls.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 18. And will be a father unto you , etc..] The same is promised to Solomon, ( 2 Samuel 7:14) and said of Israel, ( Jeremiah 31:9) which is thought to be referred unto. This is not to be understood of the first commencement of this relation, as though God now began to be their Father; nor indeed of the first manifestation of it, which had been already made to their souls by the Spirit of adoption, witnessing to their spirits that God was their Father, and they were his children; but of his acting, and continuing to act the part of a father to them; which he does, by pitying his children, sympathizing with them, and supporting them under all their trials and afflictions; by taking care of them, that they have food and raiment convenient for them; by laying up for them, as he has done in his covenant, in his Son, and in heaven; by communicating unto them, by passing by their offences and miscarriages to him, and by correcting them for their good, and at last giving them the heavenly inheritance, and putting them into the possession of it: and ye shall be my sons and daughters . This also does not relate to the first act of adoption, when these persons first became the sons and daughters of God; for so they were by adopting grace, in the mind, counsel, and covenant of God, from eternity; as such they were considered when given to Christ, when he assumed their nature, and died to gather them together in one; and as antecedent to faith and the work of the Spirit upon their souls: nor even of the first discovery of this grace unto them; but the meaning is, that whereas they were the sons and daughters of God, they should be treated as such; whenever he spoke to them, or dealt with them in providence, he would speak to them and deal with them as children; or it may refer to the more full and open manifestation of their sonship, before angels and men, at the appearance of Christ: to all which is added, saith the Lord Almighty ; for confirmation sake, and to encourage the faith of the saints; since he who said all this is the Lord God Almighty, and so able to perform it; and of which, and his willingness, no question is to be made, since he has said it.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 11-18 - It is wrong for
    believers to join with the wicked and profane. The wor unbeliever applies to all destitute of true faith. True pastors wil caution their beloved children in the gospel, not to be unequall yoked. The fatal effects of neglecting Scripture precepts as to marriages clearly appear. Instead of a help meet, the union brings snare. Those whose cross it is to be unequally united, without their wilful fault, may expect consolation under it; but when believers ente into such unions, against the express warnings of God's word, they mus expect must distress. The caution also extends to common conversation We should not join in friendship and acquaintance with wicked men an unbelievers. Though we cannot wholly avoid seeing and hearing, an being with such, yet we should never choose them for friends. We mus not defile ourselves by converse with those who defile themselves with sin. Come out from the workers of iniquity, and separate from their vain and sinful pleasures and pursuits; from all conformity to the corruptions of this present evil world. If it be an envied privilege to be the son or daughter of an earthly prince, who can express the dignity and happiness of being sons and daughters of the Almighty __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    18. I will be to you, etc. From
    2 Sam. vii. 14, where the Septuagint and Hebrew agree. Paul says sons and daughters for son.

    Almighty (pantokratwr). The word is peculiar to Revelation, occurring nowhere else in the New Testament. Here it is a quotation. Frequent in the Septuagint.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    6:18 {Saith the Lord Almighty} (legei kurios pantokratwr). #2Sa 7:8. this use of eis is a Hebraism for Hebrew _le_ instead of predicate nominative. pantokratwr (pas, kratew, Ruler of all) is common in the LXX. Occurs also in the inscriptions and papyri. In the N.T. only here and in Revelation.
