    VERSE (18) -
    Mt 17:6

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:18

    Y nosotros oímos esta voz enviada del cielo, cuando estbamos juntamente con l en el Monte Santo.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Peter 1:18

    Verse 18. And this voice-we heard] That is, himself, James, and John heard it, and saw this
    glory; for these only were the epoptai, beholders, on the holy mount. It is worthy of remark that our blessed Lord, who came to give a new law to mankind, appeared on this holy mount with splendour and great glory, as God did when he came on the holy mount, Sinai, to give the old law to Moses. And when the voice came from the excellent glory, This is my Son, the beloved One, in whom I have delighted; hear him: the authority of the old law was taken away. Neither Moses nor Elijah, the law nor the prophets, must tabernacle among men, as teaching the whole way of salvation, and affording the means of eternal life; these things they had pointed out, but these things they did not contain; yet the fulfillment of their types and predictions rendered their declarations more firm and incontestable. See below.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 18. And this
    voice, which came from heaven, we heard , etc.] Peter, who wrote this epistle, and James and John, the favourite disciples of Christ; and who were a sufficient number to bear witness of what they then saw and heard: when we were with him ; and saw his glory, and the glory of Moses and Elias, and were so delighted with his company, and theirs, and with communion with him, that Peter, in the name of the rest, desired to stay there: in the holy mount ; the Ethiopic version reads, in the mountain of his sanctuary; and so Grotius understands it of Mount Moriah, on which the temple was built, called the holy hill, and the holy hill of Zion; and supposes that this voice was heard in the temple, and that it refers to ( John 12:28), but without any foundation; for the mount on which Christ was transfigured is here meant; and which was either, as is generally said, Tabor, a mountain in Galilee; or it may be Lebanon, which was near Caesarea Philippi, in the parts of which Christ then was: and it is called holy, from his presence or transfiguration on it, who is the Holy One; just as the land on which Moses was, and the city and temple of Jerusalem, and Mount Sion, and Sinai, are called holy, from the presence of the holy God there, ( Exodus 3:5 Matthew 4:5 Psalm 2:6 68:17). Now such a declaration of the honour and glory of Christ, as the Son of God, being made by God the Father, in a voice from heaven, which the apostles heard with their ears, at the same time that they saw with their eyes his human body glorified in an amazing manner, was to them a confirming evidence that he would come again in power and glory; and upon this evidence they declared, and made known to the saints, the power and coming of Christ; though not on this evidence only, but also upon the more sure word of prophecy, which entirely agrees with it.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 16-21 - The
    gospel is no weak thing, but comes in power, Ro 1:16. The law set before us our wretched state by sin, but there it leaves us. I discovers our disease, but does not make known the cure. It is the sight of Jesus crucified, in the gospel, that heals the soul. Try to dissuade the covetous worlding from his greediness, one ounce of gol weighs down all reasons. Offer to stay a furious man from anger by arguments, he has not patience to hear them. Try to detain the licentious, one smile is stronger with him than all reason. But com with the gospel, and urge them with the precious blood of Jesus Christ shed to save their souls from hell, and to satisfy for their sins, an this is that powerful pleading which makes good men confess that their hearts burn within them, and bad men, even an Agrippa, to say they ar almost persuaded to be Christians, Ac 26:28. God is well pleased with Christ, and with us in him. This is the Messiah who was promised through whom all who believe in him shall be accepted and saved. The truth and reality of the gospel also are foretold by the prophets an penmenof the Old Testament, who spake and wrote under influence, an according to the direction of the Spirit of God. How firm and sure should our faith be, who have such a firm and sure word to rest upon When the light of the Scripture is darted into the blind mind and dar understanding, by the Holy Spirit of God, it is like the day-break tha advances, and diffuses itself through the whole soul, till it make perfect day. As the Scripture is the revelation of the mind and will of God, every man ought to search it, to understand the sense and meaning The Christian knows that book to be the word of God, in which he taste a sweetness, and feels a power, and sees a glory, truly divine. And the prophecies already fulfilled in the person and salvation of Christ, an in the great concerns of the church and the world, form an unanswerabl proof of the truth of Christianity. The Holy Ghost inspired holy men to speak and write. He so assisted and directed them in delivering what they had received from him, that they clearly expressed what they mad known. So that the Scriptures are to be accounted the words of the Holy Ghost, and all the plainness and simplicity, all the power and all the propriety of the words and expressions, come from God. Mix faith with what you find in the Scriptures, and esteem and reverence the Bible a a book written by holy men, taught by the Holy Ghost __________________________________________________________________

    Voice (fwnhn). Note the same word in the account of Pentecost (Acts ii. 6), where the A.V. obscures the meaning by rendering, when this was noised abroad; whereas it should be when this voice was heard.

    Which came (enecqeisan). Lit., having been born. See on ver. 17. Rev., This voice we ourselves (hJmeiv, we, emphatic) heard come (better, born) out of heaven.

    Holy mount. It is scarcely necessary to notice Davidson's remark that this expression points to a time when superstitious reverence for places had sprung up in Palestine. "Of all places to which special sanctity would be ascribed by Christ's followers, surely that would be the first to be so marked where the most solemn testimony was given to the divinity of Jesus. To the Jewish Christian this would rank with Sinai, and no name would be more fitly applied to it than that which had so constantly been given to a place on which God first revealed himself in his glory. The 'holy mount of God' (Ezek. xxviii. 14) would now receive another application, and he would see little of the true continuity of God's revelation who did not connect readily the old and the new covenants, and give to the place where the glory of Christ was most eminently shown forth the same name which was applied so oft to Sinai" (Lumby).
