SEV Biblia, Chapter 19:7 Â¶ La ley del SEÑOR es perfecta, que convierte el alma; el testimonio del SEÑOR es fiel, que hace sabio al pequeño.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Psalms 18:7 Verse 7. The law of the Lord ] And here are two books of Divine Revelation: 1. The visible HEAVENS, and the works of creation in general.
2. The BIBLE, or Divinely inspired writings contained in the Old and New Testaments. These may all be called the LAW of the Lord; hrwt torah, from hry yarah, to instruct, direct, put straight, guide. It is God's system of instruction, by which men are taught the knowledge of God and themselves, directed how to walk so as to please GOD, redeemed from crooked paths, and guided in the way everlasting. Some think that hrwt torah means the preceptive part of Revelation. Some of the primitive fathers have mentioned three LAWS given by God to man: 1. The law of nature, which teaches the knowledge of God, as to his eternal power and Deity, by the visible creation. 2. The law given to Moses and the prophets, which teaches more perfectly the knowledge of God, his nature, his will and our duty. 3. The law of grace given by Christ Jesus, which shows the doctrine of the atonement, of purification, and of the resurrection of the body. The first is written in hieroglyphics in the heavens and the earth. The second was written on tables of stone, and in many rites and ceremonies. The third is to be written on the heart by the power of the Holy Ghost.
Is perfect ] hmymt temimah, it is perfection, it is perfect in itself as a law, and requires perfection in the hearts and lives of men. This is ITS character.
Converting the soul ] Turning it back to God. Restoring it to right reason, or to a sound mind; teaching it its own interest in reference to both worlds. This is ITS use.
The testimony of the Lord ] twd[ eduth, from d[ ad, beyond, forward.
The various types and appointments of the law, which refer to something beyond themselves, and point forward to the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. Some understand, the doctrinal parts of the law.
Is sure ] hnman neemanah, are faithful; they point out the things beyond them fairly, truly, and fully, and make no vain or false report. They all bear testimony to the great atonement. This is THEIR character.
Making wise the simple. ] The simple is he who has but one end in view: who is concerned about his soul, and earnestly inquires, "What shall I do to be saved?" These testimonies point to the atonement, and thus the simple-hearted is made wise unto salvation. This is THEIR use.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 7-10 - The Holy Scripture is of much greater benefit to us than day or night than the air we breathe, or the light of the sun. To recover man out of his fallen state, there is need of the word of God. The word translate "law," may be rendered doctrine, and be understood as meaning all tha teaches us true religion. The whole is perfect; its tendency is to convert or turn the soul from sin and the world, to God and holiness It shows our sinfulness and misery in departing from God, and the necessity of our return to him. This testimony is sure, to be full depended on: the ignorant and unlearned believing what God saith become wise unto salvation. It is a sure direction in the way of duty It is a sure fountain of living comforts, and a sure foundation of lasting hopes. The statues of the Lord are right, just as they shoul be; and, because they are right, they rejoice the heart. The commandments of the Lord are pure, holy, just, and good. By them we discover our need of a Saviour; and then learn how to adorn his gospel They are the means which the Holy Spirit uses in enlightening the eyes they bring us to a sight and sense of our sin and misery, and direct u in the way of duty. The fear of the Lord, that is, true religion an godliness, is clean, it will cleanse our way; and it endureth for ever The ceremonial law is long since done away, but the law concerning the fear of God is ever the same. The judgments of the Lord, his precepts are true; they are righteous, and they are so altogether; there is n unrighteousness in any of them. Gold is only for the body, and the concerns of time; but grace is for the soul, and the concerns of eternity. The word of God, received by faith, is more precious tha gold; it is sweet to the soul, sweeter than honey. The pleasure of sense soon surfeit, yet never satisfy; but those of religion ar substantial and satisfying; there is no danger of excess.
