    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:9

    descubrindonos el misterio de su voluntad, por el buen querer de su voluntad, segn lo que se había propuesto en sí mismo,

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Ephesians 1:9

    Verse 9. Having made known unto us the
    mystery] That the Gentiles should ever be received into the Church of God, and have all the privileges of the Jews, without being obliged to submit to circumcision, and perform the rites and ceremonies of the Jewish law was a mystery- a hidden thing which had never been published before; and now revealed only to the apostles. It was God's will that it should be so, but that will he kept hidden to the present time. A mystery signifies something hidden, but it ceases to be a mystery as soon as it is revealed. See the note on Matt. xiii. 11; and particularly that on Rom. xi. 25.

    Good pleasure] thn eudokian? That benevolent design which he had purposed in himself, not being induced by any consideration from without.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 9. Having made known unto us the mystery of his will , &c.] The Gospel, which is a mystery, a hidden mystery, the mystery of God and of Christ, and the mystery of the Gospel; the several doctrines of it are called the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven; such as are concerning the trinity of persons in the Godhead, the union of the two natures in Christ, his sonship and incarnation, the saints' union and communion with him, the work of the Spirit of God upon the soul, the calling of the Gentiles, and the conversion of the Jews, the resurrection of the dead, and the change of living saints: and the Gospel is the mystery of the will of God; of his will in saving sinners by Christ; and it declares that he does all things in salvation, according to his sovereign will and pleasure; chooses, redeems, justifies, pardons, and calls whom he pleases; and this is made known by the ministry of the word, and by the Spirit, as a spirit of wisdom and revelation, in the knowledge of Christ and his Gospel: the discovery of which is, according to his good pleasure, which he hath purposed in himself ; both with respect to the persons to whom it is made known, and with respect to the time when he makes it known; both these are as he pleases, and as he has purposed in his own breast; the Gospel is sent when and where he has determined within himself it shall go; and persons are called by it according to his purpose and grace.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 9-14 - Blessings were made known to
    believers, by the Lord's showing to the the mystery of his sovereign will, and the method of redemption an salvation. But these must have been for ever hidden from us, if God ha not made them known by his written word, preached gospel, and Spirit of truth. Christ united the two differing parties, God and man, in his ow person, and satisfied for that wrong which caused the separation. He wrought, by his Spirit, those graces of faith and love, whereby we ar made one with God, and among ourselves. He dispenses all his blessings according to his good pleasure. His Divine teaching led whom he please to see the glory of those truths, which others were left to blaspheme What a gracious promise that is, which secures the gift of the Holy Ghost to those who ask him! The sanctifying and comforting influence of the Holy Spirit seal believers as the children of God, and heirs of heaven. These are the first-fruits of holy happiness. For this we wer made, and for this we were redeemed; this is the great design of God in all that he has done for us; let all be ascribed unto the praise of his glory.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    9. Having made known. The participle is explanatory of which He made to abound, etc.: in that He made known.

    The mystery of His will. For mystery, see on Rom. xi. 25; Colossians i. 26. Another key-word of this epistle. God's grace as manifested in redemption is a mystery in virtue of its riches and depth - as the expression of God's very nature. The mystery of the redemption in Christ, belonging to the eternal plan of God, could be known to men only through revelation - making known. Of his will; pertaining to his will. Compare ch. iii. 9.

    Purposed (proeqeto). Only here, Rom. i. 13; iii. 25 (note).

    In Himself (en autw). The best texts read aujtw in Him; but the reference is clearly to God, not to Christ, who is expressly mentioned in the next verse.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    1:9 {The mystery of his will} (to musterion tou qelematos autou). Once hidden, now revealed as in #Col 1:26 which see. See also #Col 2:3. {Which he purposed} (hen proeqeto). Second aorist middle of protiqemi, old verb, for which see #Ro 1:13; 3:25.
