    SEV Biblia, Chapter 7:24

    Cualquiera, pues, que me oye estas palabras, y las hace, le comparar al varn prudente, que edific su casa sobre la pea;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Matthew 7:24

    Verse 24. Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine] That is, the excellent
    doctrines laid down before in this and the two preceding chapters. There are several parables or similitudes like to this in the rabbins. I shall quote but the two following:-Rabbi Eleasar said, "The man whose knowledge exceeds his works, to whom is he like? He is like a tree which had many branches, and only a few roots; and, when the stormy winds came, it was plucked up and eradicated. But he whose good works are greater than his knowledge, to what is he like? He is like a tree which had few branches, and many roots; so that all the winds of heaven could not move it from its place." Pirke Aboth.

    Elisha, the son of Abuja, said, "The man who studies much in the law, and maintains good works, is like to a man who built a house, laying stones at the foundation, and building brick upon them; and, though many waters come against it, they cannot move it from its place. But the man who studies much in the law, and does not maintain good words, is like to a man who, in building his house, put brick at the foundation, and laid stones upon them, so that even gentle waters shall overthrow that house." Aboth Rab. Nath.

    Probably our Lord had this or some parable in his eye: but how amazingly improved in passing through his hands! In our Lord's parable there is dignity, majesty, and point, which we seek for in vain in the Jewish archetype.

    I will liken him unto a wise man] To a prudent man-andri fronimw, to a prudent man, a man of sense and understanding, who, foreseeing the evil hideth himself, who proposes to himself the best end, and makes use of the proper means to accomplish it. True wisdom consists in getting the building of our salvation completed: to this end we must build on the Rock, CHRIST JESUS, and make the building firm, by keeping close to the maxims of his Gospel, and having our tempers and lives conformed to its word and spirit; and when, in order to this, we lean on nothing but the grace of Christ, we then build upon a solid rock.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 24. Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine , etc.] The comparison in this, and the following verses, is the concluding part of our Lords discourses upon the mount, which are meant by these sayings, or doctrines, he here speaks of; and as he had in some foregoing verses chiefly respect to preachers, so here, to hearers, his disciples and followers in general. The subject of this comparison, in ( Luke 6:47) is, whosoever cometh unto me; as all that are given to Christ by the Father will do, sooner or later: such whom he encourages to come to him, are they that labour and are heavy laden; and they that come aright, come as poor perishing sinners; they believe in him, give up themselves to him, to be saved by him with an everlasting salvation; all which is owing to efficacious grace. These hear his sayings, as doctrines, not merely externally, but internally, having ears to hear given unto them, so as to understand them, love them, believe them, feel the power, taste the sweetness, and have a delightful relish of them; and such an one hears them, and doth them : he is not only an hearer, but a doer of the word of the Gospel; the doctrines of it he receives in the love of them, and exercises faith on them; upon Christ, his grace and righteousness held forth in them, which is the great work and business of a Christian, he is to do, and does do in this life: the ordinances of it he cheerfully obeys; and all the duties of religion he performs from love to Christ, without any view to obtain eternal life hereby, which he only expects from Christ, as his sayings and doctrines direct him. The comparison follows, I will liken him to a wise man, which built his house upon a rock . Luke says, he is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation a rock. Every believer is a builder; the house he builds, is his own soul, and the salvation of it; in order to which he digs deep, till he comes to a rock, to a good foundation; he searches diligently into the Scriptures of truth; he constantly attends the ministry of the word; he inquires of Gospel preachers, and other saints, the way of salvation; which having found, he lays the whole stress of his salvation on the rock of ages, which rock is Christ: he makes him the foundation of all his hopes of eternal life and happiness; which is the foundation God has laid in Zion; and which has been laid ministerially by the prophets of the Old, and the apostles of the New Testament; and by believers themselves, when they build their faith and hope upon it. This foundation, the person, blood, and righteousness of Christ, is as a rock, firm and strong, will bear the whole weight that is laid upon it; it is sure and certain, it will never give way; it is immoveable and everlasting; the house built upon it stands safe and sure.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 21-29 -
    Christ here shows that it will not be enough to own him for our Master only in word and tongue. It is necessary to our happiness that we believe in Christ, that we repent of sin, that we live a holy life that we love one another. This is his will, even our sanctification Let us take heed of resting in outward privileges and doings, lest we deceive ourselves, and perish eternally, as multitudes do, with a li in our right hand. Let every one that names the name of Christ, depar from all sin. There are others, whose religion rests in bare hearing and it goes no further; their heads are filled with empty notions These two sorts of hearers are represented as two builders. Thi parable teaches us to hear and do the sayings of the Lord Jesus: some may seem hard to flesh and blood, but they must be done. Christ is lai for a foundation, and every thing besides Christ is sand. Some buil their hopes upon worldly prosperity; others upon an outward professio of religion. Upon these they venture; but they are all sand, too wea to bear such a fabric as our hopes of heaven. There is a storm comin that will try every man's work. When God takes away the soul, where is the hope of the hypocrite? The house fell in the storm, when the builder had most need of it, and expected it would be a shelter to him It fell when it was too late to build another. May the Lord make u wise builders for eternity. Then nothing shall separate us from the love of Christ Jesus. The multitudes were astonished at the wisdom an power of Christ's doctrine. And this sermon, ever so often read over is always new. Every word proves its Author to be Divine. Let us be more and more decided and earnest, making some one or other of thes blessednesses and Christian graces the main subject of our thoughts even for weeks together. Let us not rest in general and confuse desires after them, whereby we grasp at all, but catch nothing __________________________________________________________________

    7:24 {And doeth them} (kai poiei autous). That is the
    point in the parable of the wise builder, "who digged and went deep, and laid a foundation upon the rock" (#Lu 6:48).
