SEV Biblia, Chapter 32:39 Â¶ Ved ahora que yo, yo soy, y no hay dioses conmigo; yo hago morir, y yo hago vivir; yo hiero, y yo curo; y no hay quien pueda librar de mi mano.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Deuteronomy 32:39 Verse 39. See now that I-am he] Be convinced that God alone can save, and God alone can destroy, and that your idols can neither hurt nor help you.
I kill, and I make alive, &c.] My mercy is as great as my justice, for I am as ready to save the penitent as I was to punish the rebellious.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 39. See now that I, [even] I, [am] he , etc.] Which words are directed to the people of God in their low estate, to look to Christ, and expect deliverance and salvation from him; or to their enemies that insult them, to the despisers, to look, and wonder, and perish, as they will, when the witnesses slain by them shall arise, and go up to heaven in their sight, ( Revelation 11:11-13); they are spoken by the Word and Son of God, to whom the Father has committed all judgment, and who will now rise up and execute it; so the Targum of Jonathan, “when the Word of the Lord shall reveal himself to redeem his people, he will say to all people, see now, etc.” and who will declare himself to be the great Jehovah, the self-existent Being, the eternal and immutable I AM; for this phrase is expressive of his existence, eternity, immutability, and sovereignty; and which the above Targum paraphrases thus, “see now that I am he that have been, and am, and I am he that shall be,” which, as it is a deciphering the word “Jehovah”, is what is applied to Christ, ( Revelation 1:8). The repeating the word “I”, as it may denote the strong affection of the speaker, and the certainty of what he would do, so it may have respect to both sorts of persons the words are directed to, and to the several sorts of things to be done, hereafter related; signifying that it is the same I, that does the one, does also the other, kills and makes alive, etc. and [there is] no god with me ; this the Redeemer and Saviour says elsewhere, ( Isaiah 44:6 45:21); (see Deuteronomy 32:12); there is but one God, and Christ the Word, with the Father and the Spirit, are that one God, ( 1 John 5:7); and there is no other with him; he is the true God, in opposition to all factitious and fictitious gods; he is not a made god, nor a god by office, nor by name and title only, but by nature the one, true, only, and living God; and so it may be most truly believed of him, that he is able to do, and will do, what he next says: I kill, and I make alive ; I wound, and I heal: Christ is the sovereign disposer of life and death, of sickness and health, in a temporal sense; and in a spiritual sense he wounds and kills, by the law in the hand of his Spirit; and he heals and makes alive by his Gospel, as it is accompanied by his Spirit and grace also: this is by some referred to the resurrection from the dead, which will be by Christ the resurrection and the life, the earnest, exemplar, and efficient cause of it; so the Targum of Jerusalem, “I am he that kills the living in this world, and quickens the dead in the world to come:” but it refers to another resurrection previous to that, namely, the reviving of the witnesses after they have been slain three days; who, as they will be killed in a civil sense, in the same sense they will be quickened by the Spirit of life from Christ; that is, they will be raised from that very low estate into which they will be brought, into a glorious one, signified by their ascending up into heaven; which will be done by Christ when he takes to himself his great power, and reigns; then as he suffered his witnesses and people to be wounded and killed, he will make them alive, and heal them, and restore comforts and happiness to them, (see Revelation 11:11,12); neither [is there any] that can deliver out of my hand ; for, at the same time that he saves his people, he will take their enemies into his hands, out of which there will be no escape; at this time seven thousand names of men, or men of name, will be slain, (see Gill on “ Revelation 11:13”).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 39-43 - This conclusion of the song speaks, 1. Glory to God. No escape can be made from his power. 2. It speaks terror to his enemies. Terror indee to those who hate him. The wrath of God is here revealed from heave against them. 3. It speaks comfort to his own people. The son concludes with words of joy. Whatever judgments are brought upo sinners, it shall go well with the people of God.
