    SEV Biblia, Chapter 19:26

    Mirndolos Jess, les dijo: Para los hombres esto es imposible; mas para Dios todo es posible.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Matthew 19:26

    Verse 26. With
    men this is impossible] God alone can take the love of the world out of the human heart. Therefore the salvation of the rich is represented as possible only to him: and indeed the words seem to intimate, that it requires more than common exertions of Omnipotence to save a rich man.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 26. But
    Jesus beheld them , etc.] Looking wishfully and earnestly at them; signifying thereby, that he knew their reasonings among themselves, though they did not speak out so as to be heard by him; and that there was no reason why they should be in so much concern, as their countenances showed, or possess themselves with such fears: and said unto them, with men this is impossible . Mark adds, but not with God; for with God all things are possible; to be done by him, if he will, which are consistent with the glory and perfections of his nature: for as he could, by his almighty power, if he would, reduce a camel to so small a size, as to be able to go through the eye of a needle, which, with men, is an impossible thing; so by the mighty power of his grace he can work upon a rich mans heart, in such a manner, as to take off his affections from his worldly substance, and cause him to drop his trust and confidence in it: he can so influence and dispose his mind, as to distribute his riches cheerfully among the poor, and largely, and liberally supply their wants, and even part with all, when necessity requires it: he can change his heart, and cause the desires of his soul to be after true riches of grace and glory; and bring him to see his own spiritual poverty, his need of Christ, and salvation by him; and to deny himself, take up the cross, and follow him, by submitting to his most despised ordinances, and by suffering the loss of all things for his sake; and he can carry him through a thousand snares safe to his kingdom and glory, which is Christs sense; though the thing is impossible upon the foot of human nature, and strength, which can never effect anything of this kind: and as to what the apostles suggested concerning the safety of persons in the Messiahs kingdom, if no rich man could enter there, but should be in opposition to it; our Lords answer implies, that though, humanly speaking, it was not possible and practicable that they, a company of poor, mean, and despicable men, should be able to stand against the united force of the great and mighty men of the earth; yet God was able to support, and uphold them, succeed, and keep them, and make them both useful and comfortable, amidst all the opposition and persecution they should meet with, until he had finished his whole will and work by them.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 23-30 - Though
    Christ spoke so strongly, few that have riches do not trust in them. How few that are poor are not tempted to envy! But men' earnestness in this matter is like their toiling to build a high wal to shut themselves and their children out of heaven. It should be satisfaction to those who are in a low condition, that they are no exposed to the temptations of a high and prosperous condition. If the live more hardly in this world than the rich, yet, if they get mor easily to a better world, they have no reason to complain. Christ' words show that it is hard for a rich man to be a good Christian, an to be saved. The way to heaven is a narrow way to all, and the gat that leads into it, a strait gate; particularly so to rich people. Mor duties are expected from them than from others, and more sins easil beset them. It is hard not to be charmed with a smiling world. Ric people have a great account to make up for their opportunities abov others. It is utterly impossible for a man that sets his heart upon his riches, to get to heaven. Christ used an expression, denoting difficulty altogether unconquerable by the power of man. Nothing les than the almighty grace of God will enable a rich man to get over thi difficulty. Who then can be saved? If riches hinder rich people, ar not pride and sinful lusts found in those not rich, and as dangerous to them? Who can be saved? say the disciples. None, saith Christ, by an created power. The beginning, progress, and perfecting the work of salvation, depend wholly on the almighty power of God, to which all things are possible. Not that rich people can be saved in their worldliness, but that they should be saved from it. Peter said, We have forsaken all. Alas! it was but a poor all, only a few boats and nets yet observe how Peter speaks, as if it had been some mighty thing. We are too apt to make the most of our services and sufferings, ou expenses and losses, for Christ. However, Christ does not upbraid them though it was but little that they had forsaken, yet it was their all and as dear to them as if it had been more. Christ took it kindly tha they left it to follow him; he accepts according to what a man hath Our Lord's promise to the apostles is, that when the Son of man shal sit on the throne of his glory, he will make all things new, and the shall sit with him in judgement on those who will be judged accordin to their doctrine. This sets forth the honour, dignity, and authorit of their office and ministry. Our Lord added, that every one who ha forsaken possessions or comforts, for his sake and the gospel, would be recompensed at last. May God give us faith to rest our hope on this his promise; then we shall be ready for every service or sacrifice. Ou Saviour, in the last verse, does away a mistake of some. The heavenl inheritance is not given as earthly ones are, but according to God' pleasure. Let us not trust in promising appearances or outwar profession. Others may, for aught we know, become eminent in faith an holiness __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    26. This (touto). Not the
    salvation of rich men, but salvation in general. It is in answer to the question, who can be saved? Man cannot save himself nor his fellow. God only can save him.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    19:26 {Looking on them} (embleyas).
    Jesus saw their amazement.
