    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:78

    por las entraas de misericordia de nuestro Dios, con que nos visit de lo alto el amanecer,

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 78. Through the tender
    mercy of our God , etc.] or bowels of mercy, to which the forgiveness of sin is owing; the source and spring of pardon, is the free grace and abundant mercy of God; it takes its rise from thence, though it is channelled in the blood and sacrifice of Christ; and which no way derogates from, but rather heightens the riches of God's grace and mercy: for it was mercy that moved God to enter into a covenant with his Son, in which forgiveness of sin is promised; and it was mercy to set forth his Son, in his eternal purposes and decrees; and to send him forth in the fulness of time, to shed his blood for the remission of sins; it was the mercy of God to us, that provided a lamb for a burnt offering, and then accepted of the sacrifice and satisfaction of his Son, in our room and stead, and forgave all our sins, for his sake; and whatever the pardon of our sins cost God and Christ, it is all free grace and mercy to us: it is owing not to the absolute mercy of God, or to the mercy of God as an absolute God, but to the mercy of our God; our God in Christ, our covenant God and Father, whose bowels yearned towards us, and whose pity is that of a tender parent: whereby the day spring from on high hath visited us : the word anatolh , here used, and is translated the day spring, is the same which the Septuagint use, in ( Jeremiah 23:5, Zechariah 3:8, 6:12) where the Messiah is spoken of, under the name of the branch: and undoubtedly the Messiah Jesus, is intended here, who is the man, that branch, that has grown up out of his place; not from below, but from above; and who is the phosphorus, or bringer of light, that bright and morning star, that sun of righteousness, who has light in himself, and communicates light to others; even light natural, spiritual, and eternal; and with his rays and beams of light, life, and love, refreshes, exhilarates, and warms, the hearts of his people: and by the visit he has made in our horizon, is meant his assumption of human nature; which, like a friendly visit, proceeded from pure love to the children of God; and was a drawing near unto them, for it was a taking on him their nature, in which he represented their persons; and was done through much difficulty and great condescension, since he was in the form of God, and thought it no robbery to be equal with him; and his stay on earth in this nature, was but for a little while; so that on all accounts, it may be truly called a visit: and which, as the remission of sin is wholly owing to the tender mercy of our God, who put him upon it, called him to it, sent him forth made of a woman, and in the likeness of sinful flesh, to obtain eternal redemption, in which mercy and truth met together: the end and design of this visit, are signified in the next verse; for the following words belong to the day spring from on high, and not to John the Prophet of the Highest.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 67-80 - Zacharias uttered a
    prophecy concerning the kingdom and salvation of the Messiah. The gospel brings light with it; in it the day dawns. I John the Baptist it began to break, and increased apace to the perfec day. The gospel is discovering; it shows that about which we wer utterly in the dark; it is to give light to those that sit in darkness the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesu Christ. It is reviving; it brings light to those that sit in the shado of death, as condemned prisoners in the dungeon. It is directing; it is to guide our feet in the way of peace, into that way which will brin us to peace at last, Ro 3:17. John gave proofs of strong faith vigorous and holy affections, and of being above the fear and love of the world. Thus he ripened for usefulness; but he lived a retired life till he came forward openly as the forerunner of the Messiah. Let u follow peace with all men, as well as seek peace with God and our ow consciences. And if it be the will of God that we live unknown to the world, still let us diligently seek to grow strong in the grace of Jesus Christ __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    78.Tender
    mercy (splagcna eleouv). Lit., bowels of mercy. See on 1 Peter iii. 8; Jas. v. 11. Rev. gives heart of mercy in margin. Wyc., frightfully, entrails of mercy.

    The day-spring from on high (anatolh ex uyouv). Lit., the rising. The word occurs in the Septuagint as a rendering of branch, as something rising or springing up, by which the Messiah is denoted (Jer. xxiii. 5; Zech. vi. 12). Also of the rising of a heavenly body (Isa. lx. 19, Sept.). Compare the kindred verb arise (anatellw) in Isa. lx. 1; Mal. iv. 2. This latter is the sense here. See on Matt. ii. 2. Wyc. has he springing up from on high.

    Hath visited (epeskeyato). See on Matt. xxv. 36; 1 Pet. ii. 12. Some, however, read ejpiskeyetai, shall visit. So Rev.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    1:78 {Tender mercy} (splagcna eleous). Bowels of mercy literally (#1Pe 3:8; Jas 3:11). Revised margin has it, hearts of mercy. {The dayspring from on high} (anatole ex huyous). Literally, rising from on high, like the rising sun or stars (#Isa 60:19). The word is used also of a sprouting plant or branch (#Jer 23:5; Zec 6:12), but that does not suit here. {Shall visit} (epeskeyetai), correct text, cf. #1:68.
