    SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:13

    Todo lo puedo en el Cristo que me fortalece.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Philippians 4:13

    Verse 13. I can do all things] It was not a
    habit which he had acquired by frequent exercise, it was a disposition which he had by grace; and he was enabled to do all by the power of an indwelling Christ. Through Him who strengtheneth me is the reading of some of the best MSS., versions, and fathers; the word cristw, Christ, being omitted.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 13. I can do all things , etc.] Which must not be understood in the greatest latitude, and without any limitation; for the
    apostle was not omnipotent, either in himself, or by the power of Christ; nor could he do all things that Christ could do; but it must be restrained to the subject matter treated of: the sense is, that he could be content in every state, and could know how to behave himself in adversity and prosperity, amidst both poverty and plenty; yea, it may be extended to all the duties incumbent on him both as a Christian and as an apostle, as to exercise a conscience void of offence towards God and men; to take the care of all the churches; to labour more abundantly than others in preaching the Gospel; and to bear all afflictions, reproaches, and persecutions for the sake of it; yea, he could willingly and cheerfully endure the most cruel and torturing death for the sake of Christ: all these things he could do, not in his own strength, for no man was more conscious of his own weakness than he was, or knew more of the impotency of human nature; and therefore always directed others to be strong in the Lord, and in, the power of his might, and in the grace that is in Christ, on which he himself always depended, and by which he did what he did; as he adds here, through Christ which strengtheneth me . The Vulgate Latin and Ethiopic versions leave out the word Christ, and only read him; and so the Alexandrian copy and others; but intend Christ as those that express it: strength to perform duty and to bear sufferings is in Christ, and which he communicates to his people; he strengthens them with strength in their souls, internally, as the word here used signifies; by virtue of which they can do whatever he enjoins them or calls them to, though without him they can do nothing.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 10-19 - It is a good
    work to succour and help a good minister in trouble. The nature of true Christian sympathy, is not only to feel concern for ou friends in their troubles, but to do what we can to help them. The apostle was often in bonds, imprisonments, and necessities; but in all he learned to be content, to bring his mind to his condition, and make the best of it. Pride, unbelief, vain hankering after something we have not got, and fickle disrelish of present things, make men discontente even under favourable circumstances. Let us pray for patient submissio and hope when we are abased; for humility and a heavenly mind when exalted. It is a special grace to have an equal temper of mind always And in a low state not to lose our comfort in God, nor distrust his providence, nor take any wrong course for our own supply. In prosperous condition not to be proud, or secure, or worldly. This is harder lesson than the other; for the temptations of fulness an prosperity are more than those of affliction and want. The apostle ha no design to urge them to give more, but to encourage such kindness a will meet a glorious reward hereafter. Through Christ we have grace to do what is good, and through him we must expect the reward; and as we have all things by him, let us do all things for him, and to his glory.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    13. I can do (iscuw). See on
    Luke xiv. 30.

    Strengtheneth (endunamounti). More literally, infuses strength into me, as the old verb inforce.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    4:13 {I can do all things} (panta iscuw). Old verb to have strength (iscus). {In him that strengtheneth me} (en twi endunamounti me). Late and rare verb (in LXX) from adjective endunamos (en, dunamis). Causative verb to empower, to pour power into one. See same phrase in #1Ti 1:12 t"i endunam"santi me (aorist tense here). Paul has such strength so long as Jesus keeps on putting power (dunamis) into him.
