    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:20

    Mas vosotros, oh amados, edificaos a vosotros mismos sobre vuestra santísima fe, orando por el Espíritu Santo.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Jude 1:20

    Verse 20.
    Building up yourselves] Having the most holy faith- the Gospel of our Lord Jesus, and the writings of his apostles, for your foundation; founding all your expectations on these, and seeking from the Christ who is their sum and substance; all the grace and glory ye need.

    Praying in the Holy Ghost] Holding fast the Divine influence which ye have received, and under that influence making prayer and supplication to God. The prayer that is not sent up through the influence of the Holy Ghost is never likely to reach heaven.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 20. But ye, beloved , etc.] (See Gill on Jude 1:17); building up yourselves on your most holy faith ; some copies, and the Complutensian edition, read, our most holy faith; meaning the doctrine of faith in all its branches, which is holy, a most holy doctrine; which displays the holiness of God, and is a means of beginning and increasing internal holiness in the saints, and of encouraging and exciting them to external holiness of life and conversation: this phrase, aydq atwnmyhm , holy faith, is in use with the Jews f34 : and it becomes the saints to build up one another upon this; the doctrine of faith, is a foundation to build upon, particularly what regards the person, offices, and grace of Christ, and is itself of an edifying nature; and they should not content themselves with their present knowledge of it, but seek for an improvement in it; and though they were passive when first built on Christ and his doctrines, and though ministers are greatly instruments in building of them up more and more; yet they are capable of building up themselves, and one another, by attending on the ministry of the word, and by private conversation, with each other, and particularly by praying in the Holy Ghost ; which is a special means of increase and establishment in the doctrine of faith; the Holy Ghost is the author and enditer of prayer, and an assister in it; without him saints cannot call God their Father, nor pray with faith and fervency, or with freedom and liberty.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 17-23 -
    Sensual men separate from Christ, and his church, and join themselve to the devil, the world, and the flesh, by ungodly and sinfu practices. That is infinitely worse than to separate from any branch of the visible church on account of opinions, or modes and circumstance of outward government or worship. Sensual men have not the spirit of holiness, which whoever has not, does not belong to Christ. The grac of faith is most holy, as it works by love, purifies the heart, an overcomes the world, by which it is distinguished from a false and dea faith. Our prayers are most likely to prevail, when we pray in the Holy Ghost, under his guidance and influence, according to the rule of his word, with faith, fervency, and earnestness; this is praying in the Holy Ghost. And a believing expectation of eternal life will arm u against the snares of sin: lively faith in this blessed hope will hel us to mortify our lusts. We must watch over one another; faithfully yet prudently reprove each other, and set a good example to all abou us. This must be done with compassion, making a difference between the weak and the wilful. Some we must treat with tenderness. Others sav with fear; urging the terrors of the Lord. All endeavours must be joined with decided abhorrence of crimes, and care be taken to avoi whatever led to, or was connected with fellowship with them, in work of darkness, keeping far from what is, or appears to be evil.
