SEV Biblia, Chapter 7:28 Y sobre mí extendió misericordia delante del rey y de sus consultores, y de todos los príncipes poderosos del rey. Y yo, confortado según la mano de mi Dios sobre mí, junté los principales de Israel para que subiesen conmigo.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Ezra 7:28 Verse 28. And I was strengthened] In what the king decreed he saw the hand of God; he therefore gave him the praise, and took courage. There is a most amiable spirit of piety in these reflections. Ezra simply states the case; shows what the king had determined, and tells what he said; and then points out the grand agent in the whole business-it was the Lord God of his fathers. Thus God had put it into the king's heart to beautify the house of Jehovah; and, as that house was built for the salvation of the souls of men, he gives God praise for putting it into the king's heart to repair it: he who loves God and man will rejoice in the establishment of the Divine worship, because this is the readiest way to promote the best interests of man.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 28. And hath extended mercy unto me, before the king and his counsellors, and before all the king’s mighty princes , etc.] Before Artaxerxes, his seven counsellors, ( Ezra 7:14) and the nobles of his realm, in being appointed by them to carry their freewill offerings to Jerusalem, and the king’s commands to his treasurers, with leave to take as many of the Jews with him as were willing to go: and I was strengthened as the hand of the Lord my God was upon me ; animated to undertake this work, and execute this commission, being under the influence of divine favour and protection: and I gathered together out of Israel chief men to go up with me ; he went about in the several parts where Israelites dwelt, and persuaded some of the principal men among them to go along with him to Jerusalem, showing them the king’s decree, which gave them leave; and their names and numbers are described in the next chapter.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 27, 28 - Two things Ezra blessed God for: 1. For his commission. If any goo appear in our hearts, or in the hearts of others, we must own that God put it there, and bless him; it is he that worketh in us, both to wil and to do that which is good. 2. For his encouragement: God ha extended mercy to me. Ezra was a man of courage, yet he ascribed thi not to his own heart, but to God's hand. If God give us his hand, we are bold and cheerful; if he withdraw it, we are weak as water Whatever we are enabled to do for God and those around us, God mus have all the glory __________________________________________________________________
