    SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:7

    Y la paz de Dios, que sobrepasa todo entendimiento, guardar vuestros corazones y vuestros entendimientos en el Cristo Jess.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Philippians 4:7

    Verse 7. And the
    peace of God] That harmonizing of all passions and appetites which is produced by the Holy Spirit, and arises from a sense of pardon and the favour of God; Shall keep your hearts] frourhsei? Shall keep them as in a strong place or castle. Your hearts - the seat of all your affections and passions, and minds - your understanding, judgment, and conscience through Christ Jesus; by whom ye were brought into this state of favour, through whom ye are preserved in it, and in whom ye possess it; for Christ keeps that heart in peace in which he dwells and rules. This peace passeth all understanding; it is of a very different nature from all that can arise from human occurrences; it is a peace which Christ has purchased, and which God dispenses; it is felt by all the truly godly, but can be explained by none; it is communion with the Father, and his Son Jesus Christ, by the power and influence of the Holy Ghost.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 7. And the
    peace of God which passeth all understanding , etc.] Not that peace which God calls his people to among themselves in their effectual calling; and which he requires of them to cultivate and maintain; and which he encourages in them by the promise of his gracious presence among them; and which indeed he is the author of, and therefore is so called, ( Colossians 3:15); and which may be said to surpass or exceed all speculative knowledge, and understanding; for the one puffs up and profits nothing, but the other edifies; and much less that peace which God has in himself, who is all peace and love, and which passes all understanding, human and angelic; but either that peace which is made with God by the blood of Christ, and is published in the Gospel of peace, which passes and surprises all understanding of men and angels, that it should be; that the thoughts of God should be concerning it from everlasting; that a council of peace should be called and held between the eternal Three, and a covenant of peace entered into; that Christ should be appointed the peace maker, and the chastisement of it laid on him; that he should make it by the blood of his cross, and for men, while enemies to God and to himself: or else that peace of conscience, which arises from a view of peace made by Christ; of justification by his righteousness, and atonement by his sacrifice; and which may be called the peace of Christ, as the Alexandrian copy reads; both because it is founded upon, and springs from him, and is what he is the donor of: and this is what passes the understanding of every natural man; he knows nothing of this peace, what this tranquillity of mind means; he intermeddles not with this joy; it is unaccountable to him how it should be, that such then should have peace, who have so much trouble, are so much reproached, afflicted, and persecuted, and yet have peace in Christ, while they have tribulation in the world; which shall keep your hearts and minds through Jesus Christ , or in Christ Jesus: some read these words prayer wise, or as a wish, let it, or may it keep, so the Vulgate Latin; but they are rather a promise, encouraging the saints to the discharge of the above duties; as rejoicing always in the Lord, showing their moderation to all men, avoiding anxious care, and betaking themselves at all times, on all occasions, to prayer to God; in which way they may expect peace, and such as will be of that see vice to them, as here expressed; that is, be a means of their final perseverance; for the peace of God, in either sense, is a preservation of the saints: peace made with God secures them in Christ from all condemnation by the law, sin, Satan, the world, or their own hearts; and peace in their own souls, on so good a foundation as it is, keeps them through Christ as in a garrison, from being overset with the troubles of the world, or the temptations of Satan; and is a means of preserving them from being carried away with the errors and heresies of the wicked, having a witness to truth within themselves; and from every evil way and work, from profaneness and immorality; the grace of God teaching them, and the love of Christ constraining them, which is shed abroad in their hearts, to live and act otherwise.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 2-9 - Let
    believers be of one mind, and ready to help each other. As the apostle had found the benefit of their assistance, he knew ho comfortable it would be to his fellow-labourers to have the help of others. Let us seek to give assurance that our names are written in the book of life. Joy in God is of great consequence in the Christian life and Christians need to be again and again called to it. It more tha outweighs all causes for sorrow. Let their enemies perceive ho moderate they were as to outward things, and how composedly the suffered loss and hardships. The day of judgment will soon arrive, with full redemption to believers, and destruction to ungodly men. There is a care of diligence which is our duty, and agrees with a wise forecas and due concern; but there is a care of fear and distrust, which is sin and folly, and only perplexes and distracts the mind. As a remed against perplexing care, constant prayer is recommended. Not onl stated times for prayer, but in every thing by prayer. We must joi thanksgivings with prayers and supplications; not only seek supplies of good, but own the mercies we have received. God needs not to be tol our wants or desires; he knows them better than we do; but he will have us show that we value the mercy, and feel our dependence on him. The peace of God, the comfortable sense of being reconciled to God, an having a part in his favour, and the hope of the heavenly blessedness are a greater good than can be fully expressed. This peace will kee our hearts and minds through Christ Jesus; it will keep us from sinnin under troubles, and from sinking under them; keep us calm and with inward satisfaction. Believers are to get and to keep a good name; name for good things with God and good men. We should walk in all the ways of virtue, and abide therein; then, whether our praise is of me or not, it will be of God. The apostle is for an example. His doctrin and life agreed together. The way to have the God of peace with us, is to keep close to our duty. All our privileges and salvation arise is the free mercy of God; yet the enjoyment of them depends on our sincer and holy conduct. These are works of God, pertaining to God, and to his only are they to be ascribed, and to no other, neither men, words, no deeds.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    Peace of God. As the antidote to anxiety, ver. 6.

    Which passeth all understanding (h uperecousa panta noun). Either, which passes all power of comprehension, compare Ephesians iii. 20; or, better, which surpasses every (human) reason, in its power to relieve anxiety. Compare Matt. vi. 31, 32. For understanding, see on Rom. vii. 23.

    Shall keep (frourhsei). Lit., guard, as Rev., or mount guard over. God's peace, like a sentinel, patrols before the heart. Compare Tennyson:

    "Love is and was my King and Lord, And will be, though as yet I keep Within his court on earth, and sleep Encompassed by his faithful guard, And hear at times a sentinel Who moves about from place to place, And whispers to the worlds of space, In the deep night, that all is well." "In Memoriam."

    Gurnall. a little differently: "The peace of God is said to garrison the believer's heart and mind. He is surrounded with such blessed privileges that he is as safe as one in an impregnable castle" ("Christian in Complete Armor," p. 419).

    Hearts - minds (kardiav - nohmata). For hearts, see on Romans i. 21. For minds, Rev., thoughts, on 2 Cor. iii. 14. The guardianship is over the source and the issues of thought and will. "Your hearts and their fruits" (Alford).

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    4:7 {The peace of God} (h eirene tou qeou). See in #2Th 3:16 "the Lord of peace" (ho kurios ts eirns) and verse #9 for "the God of peace" (ho qeos tes eirenes). {Shall guard} (phroursei). "Shall garrison," future active indicative of frourew, old verb from frouros (pro-horos, prooraw, to see before, to look out). See #Ac 9:24; 2Co 11:32. God's peace as a sentinel mounts guard over our lives as Tennyson so beautifully pictures Love as doing.
