SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:29 Â¡Quién diese que tuviesen tal corazón, que me temiesen, y guardasen todos los días todos mis mandamientos, para que a ellos y a sus hijos les fuese bien para siempre!
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Deuteronomy 5:29 Verse 29. O that there were such a heart in them] Or rather, hz mbbl hyhw ty ym mi yitten vehayah lebabam zeh, Who will give such a heart to them, that they may fear, &c. They refuse to receive such a heart from me; who then can supply it? If they had not been such perfectly free agents as could either use or abuse their liberty, could God have made the complaint or expressed the earnest desire we find in this verse? He made the human will free; and in spite of all the influence of sin and Satan, he preserves its liberty. Had man no free will, he could neither be punished nor rewarded, because a mere machine, and consequently no more accountable for his actions than the fire for its consuming quality, or the stone for its gravity; the one having burned the house of the righteous, the other having crushed the innocent to death. See the note on "chap. xxix. 4".
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 29. O that there were such an heart in them , etc.] Not that there is properly speaking such volitions and wishes in God; but, as Aben Ezra observes, the Scripture speaks after the language of the children of men; and may be considered as upbraiding them with want of such an heart, and with weakness to do what they had promised; and, at most, as approving of those things they spoke of as grateful to him, and profitable to them: the words may be rendered, “who will give that they had such an heart”; not to me, but to them, as Aben Ezra notes; they cannot give it to themselves, nor can any creature give it to them; none but God can, and therefore they ought to have prayed to him to give them an heart to hearken and do; agreeably to which is the Arabic version, “it is to be wished by them, that such an heart would continue with them;” which they by their language signified was in them: that they would fear me; which is not naturally in the heart of man, is a gift of God, a part of the covenant of grace, is implanted in regeneration, and is no inconsiderable branch of it; it is opposed to pride, and is consistent with faith and joy, and is increased by views of the grace and goodness of God, and is a distinguishing character of a good man: and keep all my commandments always ; not only one, but all, and not only at some certain times, but continually; and which are to be kept in faith from a principle of love, with a view to the glory of God, and in the strength of Christ; and to this the fear of God is necessary, for where there is no fear of God, there is no regard to his commandments; but where there is a reverential fear of God, there are faith, hope, love, and every other grace; yea, the Spirit, the author of all, who is in the saints, to enable them to walk in the statutes of the Lord, and to keep his judgments and do them; and such keep the commandments of God, not from a slavish fear, but from a sense of divine goodness: that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever ; for the fear of God, and the keeping of his commandments, issue in the good of men, in their own good, their inward peace, and spiritual welfare; in the good of others, their neighbours, servants, and children, by way of example and instruction; and even in the public peace and prosperity of a nation in which they dwell: not that these things are meritorious of eternal life, but are what are approved of by the Lord, and are grateful to him; which is the chief view in the expression of the text.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 23-33 - Moses refers to the consternation caused by the terror with which the law was given. God's appearances have always been terrible to man, eve since the fall; but Christ, having taken away sin, invites us to com boldly to the throne of grace. They were in a good mind, under the strong convictions of the word they heard. Many have their conscience startled by the law who have them not purified; fair promises ar extorted from them, but no good principles are fixed and rooted in them. God commended what they said. He desires the welfare an salvation of poor sinners. He has given abundant proof that he does so he gives us time and space to repent. He has sent his Son to redeem us promised his Spirit to those who pray for him, and has declared that he has no pleasure in the ruin of sinners. It would be well with many, i there were always such a heart in them, as there seems to be sometimes when they are under conviction of sin, or the rebukes of providence, or when they come to look death in the face. The only way to be happy, is to be holy. Say to the righteous, It shall be well with them. Le believers make it more and more their study and delight, to do as the Lord God hath commanded __________________________________________________________________
