    SEV Biblia, Chapter 7:7

    ¶ Pedid, y se os dar; buscad, y hallaris; tocad, y se os abrir.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Matthew 7:7

    Verse 7. Ask-seek-knock] These
    three words include the ideas of want, loss, and earnestness. Ask: turn, beggar at, the door of mercy; thou art destitute of all spiritual good, and it is God alone who can give it to thee; and thou hast no claim but what his mercy has given thee on itself.

    Seek: Thou hast lost thy God, thy paradise, thy soul.-Look about thee-leave no stone unturned there is no peace, no final salvation for thee till thou get thy soul restored to the favour and image of God.

    Knock: Be in earnest-be importunate: Eternity is at hand! and, if thou die in thy sins, where God is thou shalt never come.

    Ask with confidence and humility.

    Seek with care and application.

    Knock with earnestness and perseverance.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 7. Ask and it shall be given you , etc.] This is to be understood of asking of God in prayer, for such things as are wanting; whether of a temporal nature, as food and raiment, which Christ, in the former chapter, had warned against an immoderate and anxious concern for; or of a spiritual nature, as grace, and wisdom to behave in a proper manner, both towards God and men: and such, who ask according to the will of God, in the name of Christ, and under the direction, guidance, and influence of the Spirit, who ask in faith and fear, and with submission to the divine will, shall have what they ask for; not as what they deserve, but as a free gift. Seek, and ye shall find . This is still meant of prayer, and of seeking God, his face and favour: which such shall find, who seek in a right way, by Christ, and with their whole hearts, diligently: knock and it shall be opened unto you as beggars do, who use much importunity for relief and assistance. So men should stand and knock at the door of mercy, which will not always be shut against them. Faith in prayer is a key that opens this door, when a poor soul finds grace and mercy to help it in time of need. Our Lords design is to express the nature, fervour, and constancy of prayer, and to encourage to it.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 7-11 - Prayer is the
    appointed means for obtaining what we need. Pray; pra often; make a business of prayer, and be serious and earnest in it Ask, as a beggar asks alms. Ask, as a traveller asks the way. Seek, a for a thing of value that we have lost; or as the merchantman tha seeks goodly pearls. Knock, as he that desires to enter into the hous knocks at the door. Sin has shut and barred the door against us; by prayer we knock. Whatever you pray for, according to the promise, shal be given you, if God see it fit for you, and what would you have more This is made to apply to all that pray aright; every one that asket receiveth, whether Jew or Gentile, young or old, rich or poor, high of low, master or servant, learned or unlearned, all are alike welcome to the throne of grace, if they come in faith. It is explained by comparison taken from earthly parents, and their readiness to giv their children what they ask. Parents are often foolishly fond, but God is all-wise; he knows what we need, what we desire, and what is fit for us. Let us never suppose our heavenly Father would bid us pray, an then refuse to hear, or give us what would be hurtful.
