    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:10

    Así que, entre tanto que tenemos tiempo, hagamos bien a todos, y mayormente a los de la familia de la fe.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Galatians 6:10

    Verse 10. As we have-opportunity] While it is the
    time of sowing let us sow the good seed; and let our love be, as the love of Christ is, free, manifested to all. Let us help all who need help according to the uttermost of our power; but let the first objects of our regards be those who are of the household of faith-the members of the Church of Christ, who form one family, of which Jesus Christ is the head. Those have the first claims on our attention , but all others have their claims also, and therefore we should do good unto all.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 10. As we have therefore opportunity , etc..] Or ability, so the phrase is sometimes used f120 ; as occasion requires, objects offer, as there is ability of well doing, and that continues; while the
    time of life lasts, which is the time for sowing, or doing good works: let us do good unto all men ; not only to our relations, friends, and acquaintance, but to all men; to them that are strangers to us, of whatsoever nation, Jew or Gentile; and of whatsoever religion or sect, yea, even to our very enemies: especially unto them who are of the household of faith : the children of God, that belong to his family, are true believers in Christ, hold the doctrine of faith, make a profession of it, and keep it fast; these are more especially to be the objects of Christian beneficence and liberality. The apostle may have sense reference to a practice among the Jews, who took a particular care of the children of good men that were poor; there were two chambers in the temple, the one was called the chamber of secrets, and the other the chamber of vessels: into the chamber of secrets, religious men used to put privately, whereby were privately maintained the poor ybwj ynb , of the children of good men f121 .

    The Targumist on ( Jeremiah 5:3) has a phrase much like to this applied to God, paraphrasing the passage thus; is it not, O Lord, revealed before thee, atwnmyh ydb[l abjwal , to do good to the servants of faith?


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 6-11 - Many excuse themselves from the work of religion, though they may make a show, and profess it. They may impose upon others, yet they deceiv themselves if they think to impose upon God, who knows their hearts a well as actions; and as he cannot be deceived, so he will not be mocked. Our present time is seed time; in the other world we shall rea as we sow now. As there are two sorts of sowing, one to the flesh, an the other to the Spirit, so will the reckoning be hereafter. Those wh live a carnal, sensual life, must expect no other fruit from such course than misery and ruin. But those who, under the guidance an influences of the Holy Spirit, live a life of faith in Christ, an abound in Christian graces, shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting We are all very apt to tire in duty, particularly in doing good. Thi we should carefully watch and guard against. Only to perseverance in well-doing is the reward promised. Here is an exhortation to all to d good in their places. We should take care to do good in our life-time and make this the business of our lives. Especially when fres occasions offer, and as far as our power reaches.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    10. As we have opportunity (wv kairon ecwmen). As there is a proper
    season for reaping, there is likewise a proper season for sowing. As this season comes to us, let us sow to the Spirit by doing good. Comp. Eph. v. 16; Col. iv. 5.

    Let us do good (ergazwmeqa to agaqon). Let us work the good. For the distinctive force of ejrgazesqai see on 3 John 5; and for poiein to do, on John iii. 21. Comp. Col. iii. 23 where both verbs occur. To ajgaqon is, of course, the morally good as distinguished from what is merely useful or profitable, but includes what is beneficent or kindly. See Philemon 14; Eph. iv. 28; 1 Thess. iii. 6; Rom. v. 7. Here, in a general sense, embracing all that is specified in vv. 1, 2, 3,10.

    Unto them who are of the household of faith (prov touv oikeiouv thv pistewv). Prov combines with the sense of direction that of active relation with. Comp. Matt. xiii. 56; Mark ix. 16; John i. 1; Acts iii. 25; xxviii. 25; 1 Thess. iv. 12; Heb. ix. 20. Frequently in Class. of all kinds of personal intercourse. See Hom. Od. xiv. 331; xix. 288; Thucyd. ii. 59; iv. 15; vii. 82; Hdt. i. 61. Oikeioi of the household, rare in N.T. See Eph. ii. 19; 1 Tim. v. 8. Quite often in LXX of kinsmen. It is unnecessary to introduce the idea of a household here, as A.V., since the word acquired the general sense of pertaining or belonging to. Thus oijkeioi filosofiav or gewgrafiav belonging to philosophy or geography, philosophers, geographers. So here, belonging to the faith, believers.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    6:10 {As we have opportunity} (hws kairon ecwmen). Indefinite comparative clause (present subjunctive without an). "As we have occasion at any time." {Let us work that which is good} (ergazwmeqa to agaqon). Volitive present middle subjunctive of ergazomai, "Let us keep on working the good deed." {Of the household of faith} (tous oikeious tes pistews). For the obvious reason that they belong to the same family with necessary responsibility.
