SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:5 La palabra que concerté con vosotros en vuestra salida de Egipto, y mi Espíritu est en medio de vosotros; no tem is.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 5. [According to] the Word that I covenanted with you, when ye came out of Egypt , etc.] Or rather, “with the Word, in or with whom I covenanted” f30 , etc. as some render it; that is, Christ, the essential Word, who was promised to the people of Israel at that time, ( Deuteronomy 18:15) and in whom all the promises are, and the covenant of grace itself; and which covenant was indeed made with him from eternity, but was made manifest, or more clearly manifest, to the Jewish ancestors, when they came out of Egypt: now it is here promised, for the encouragement of the Jews to go in the work of the Lord in building the temple, that this divine Word should be with them also, to counsel, assist, strengthen, and protect them; even he who went before their fathers in the wilderness in a pillar of cloud by day, and of fire by night; the Angel of God’s presence, that redeemed, saved, and carried them all the days of old; the Word that was in the beginning with God, and was God; and by whom all things were created at first; and who would, as since he has, become flesh, and dwell among them, and appear in this very temple they were now building; and who will be with all his churches, ministers, and people, unto the end of the world: so my Spirit remaineth among you : or rather, “and”, or “also, my Spirit standeth”, continueth “in the midst of you” f31 ; not only Jehovah the Father, and his divine Logos or Word, were with them; but his Spirit also, his Holy Spirit, the third Person in the Trinity, of which these words are a proof; the same Spirit which was in Moses and others in his time, for the building of the tabernacle, is now promised unto, and should continue with, the builders of this temple; as a Spirit of wisdom and counsel to direct them, and as a Spirit of might and power to strengthen and assist them: and so he is, and will be, in the churches of Christ, and in the midst of his people, to assist the ministers of the word in preaching, the people in hearing, praying, and praising; to carry on his own work in them; to be the Comforter of them, and the seal, earnest, and pledge of their future glory; nor does he, nor ever will he, depart from them; (see Isaiah 59:21 John 14:16): fear ye not : succeeding in the work, and finishing it; nor be dismayed at what the ancient people had said; nor be afraid of enemies, who did all they could to hinder and discourage them from going on with their work; and indeed there is no reason to fear, let the service be what it will the Lord employs his people in; if he, Father, Son, and Spirit, are with them; (see Isaiah 41:10).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-9 - Those who are hearty in the Lord's service shall receive encouragemen to proceed. But they could not build such a temple then, as Solomo built. Though our gracious God is pleased if we do as well as we can in his service, yet our proud hearts will scarcely let us be pleased unless we do as well as others, whose abilities are far beyond ours Encouragement is given the Jews to go on in the work notwithstanding They have God with them, his Spirit and his special presence. Though he chastens their transgressions, his faithfulness does not fail. The Spirit still remained among them. And they shall have the Messiah amon them shortly; "He that should come." Convulsions and changes would tak place in the Jewish church and state, but first should come grea revolutions and commotions among the nations. He shall come, as the Desire of all nations; desirable to all nations, for in him shall all the earth be blessed with the best of blessings; long expected an desired by all believers. The house they were building should be fille with glory, very far beyond Solomon's temple. This house shall be filled with glory of another nature. If we have silver and gold, we must serve and honour God with it, for the property is his. If we have not silver and gold, we must honour him with such as we have, and he will accept us. Let them be comforted that the glory of this latte house shall be greater than that of the former, in what would be beyon all the glories of the first house, the presence of the Messiah, the Son of God, the Lord of glory, personally, and in human nature. Nothin but the presence of the Son of God, in human form and nature, coul fulfil this. Jesus is the Christ, is He that should come, and we are to look for no other. This prophecy alone is enough to silence the Jews and condemn their obstinate rejection of Him, concerning whom all their prophets spake. If God be with us, peace is with us. But the Jews unde the latter temple had much trouble; but this promise is fulfilled is that spiritual peace which Jesus Christ has by his blood purchased for all believers. All changes shall make way for Christ to be desired an valued by all nations. And the Jews shall have their eyes opened to behold how precious He is, whom they have hitherto rejected.
