    VERSE (8) -
    De 30:14

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 10:8

    Mas ¿qu dice? Cercana est la palabra, en tu boca y en tu corazn. Esta es la palabra de fe, la cual predicamos:

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Romans 10:8

    Verse 8. But what saith it? The word is nigh thee] There is no occasion to
    seek high or low for the saving power; the word of reconciliation is nigh.

    The way of salvation is now both plain and easy. The law is magnified and made honourable by the death of Christ; and the doctrine of faith in his death and resurrection is fully proclaimed, and amply proved to be effectual to the purpose for which it was revealed. By the preaching of the Gospel the doctrine of salvation is nigh thee, and the saving influence is at hand: it is in thy mouth, easy to be understood, easy to be professed: and in thy heart, if thou art upright before God, sincerely desiring to be saved on his own terms, not striving to establish thy own method of justification by the law, which must for ever be ineffectual, but submitting to the method of justification which God has devised.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 8. But what saith it , etc..] The Scripture; so some copies, and the Vulgate Latin and Ethiopic version read, what saith the Scripture? the Arabic version, what dost thou say? or what saith he, Moses? for what follow are manifestly his words, in ( Deuteronomy 30:14), the word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart ; which is to be understood not of the law, for Moses himself is not speaking of the law only, but either of the whole word of God, both law and Gospel; or particularly of the Gospel, which holds forth those special blessings and promises of grace, pardon of sin, and circumcision of the heart, which are mentioned in the context, as what should be bestowed upon the people of the Jews in the latter days; and so is rightly applied by the apostle to the then dispensation, and is to be understood of the Gospel; which was nigh both in the ministration of it, by the apostles, to Jews and Gentiles, and in the application and experience of it; it was not only in the mouth of the preachers, but also of the hearers of it, by a hearty and sincere confession; and in [their] hearts, being attended with the power of God, and received in the love of it, was truly believed in, and cordially embraced; that is, the word of faith . This phrase, atwnmyhmd hlm , the word of faith, may be seen in the Jewish writings f192 ; and this shows what word is here meant, even the Gospel so called, because it contains doctrines which are to be believed upon the testimony of God, and particularly the doctrine of justification by the righteousness of Christ received by faith; and because it proposes Christ as the object of faith, and encourages souls to believe in him for life and salvation; and is also the means of begetting and implanting faith in the heart, and without it the preaching of it is of no avail: and it is further described by the ministration of it, which we preach ; being sent, commissioned, qualified, and assisted by Christ thereunto; which shows the agreement between Moses and the apostles of Christ; for the word which he spoke of, they preached, and indeed said no other things than what the prophets and Moses said should come, that Christ should suffer in the stead of his people, and rise again for their justification; the sum of which is delivered in ( Romans 10:9).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 5-11 - The self-condemned
    sinner need not perplex himself how thi righteousness may be found. When we speak of looking upon Christ, an receiving, and feeding upon him, it is not Christ in heaven, nor Chris in the deep, that we mean; but Christ in the promise, Christ offered is the word. Justification by faith in Christ is a plain doctrine. It is brought before the mind and heart of every one, thus leaving his without excuse for unbelief. If a man confessed faith in Jesus, as the Lord and Saviour of lost sinners, and really believed in his heart tha God had raised him from the dead, thus showing that he had accepted the atonement, he should be saved by the righteousness of Christ, impute to him through faith. But no faith is justifying which is not powerfu in sanctifying the heart, and regulating all its affections by the love of Christ. We must devote and give up to God our souls and our bodies our souls in believing with the heart, and our bodies in confessin with the mouth. The believer shall never have cause to repent his confident trust in the Lord Jesus. Of such faith no sinner shall be ashamed before God; and he ought to glory in it before men.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    8. The word is nigh thee. Septuagint, Very nigh thee is the word. The word is the
    whole subject-matter of the Gospel. See ver. 9. Moses used it of the law. See on Luke i. 37. The whole quotation in the Hebrew is as follows: "It (the commandment) is not in heaven, that ye should say, Who will ascend for us to heaven, and bring it to us, and make us hear it that we may do it? And it is not beyond the sea, that ye should say, Who will go over for us beyond the sea, and bring it to us, and make us hear it that we may do it? But the word is very near thee, in thy mouth and in thy heart, to do it." The object of the passage is to contrast the system of faith with the system of law, and that, especially, with reference to the remoteness and difficulty of righteousness. Moses says that the commandment of God to Israel is not incapable of accomplishment, nor is it a distant thing to be attained only by long and laborious effort. The people, on the contrary, carries it in its mouth, and it is stamped upon its heart. Compare Exod. xiii. 9; Deut. vi. 6-9. In applying these words to the system of faith, Paul, in like manner, denies that this system involves any painful search or laborious work. Christ has accomplished the two great things necessary for salvation. He has descended to earth and has risen from the dead. All that is necessary is to accept by faith the incarnate and risen Christ, instead of having recourse to the long and painful way of establishing one's own righteousness by obedience to the law.

    Word of faith. The phrase occurs only here. "Which forms the substratum and object of faith" (Alford). Others, the burden of which is faith.

    We preach (khrussomen). See on Matt. iv. 17, and preacher, 2 Peter ii. 5.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    10:8 {But what saith it?} (alla ti legei?). That is "the from faith righteousness." {The word of faith} (to rema ts pistews). The gospel message concerning faith (objective genitive). Only here. In contrast to the law. {Which we preach} (ho kerussomen). The living voice brings home to every one the faith kind of righteousness. Paul seizes upon the words of Moses with the orator's instinct and with rhetorical skill (Sanday and Headlam) applies them to the facts about the gospel message about the Incarnation and Resurrection of Christ.
