    VERSE (8) -
    Isa 29:10

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 11:8

    (como est escrito: Les dio Dios espíritu de remordimiento, ojos con que no vean, y oídos con que no oigan,) hasta el día de hoy.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Romans 11:8

    Verse 8.
    God hath given them the spirit of slumber] As they had wilfully closed their eyes against the light, so God has, in judgment, given them up to the spirit of slumber. The very word and revelation of God, which should have awakened their consciences, and opened their eyes and ears, have had a very different effect; and because they did not receive the truth in the love thereof, that which would otherwise have been the savour of life unto life, has become the savour of death unto death; and this continues to the present day.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 8. According as it is written , etc..] In (
    Isaiah 29:10 6:10) which passages the apostle seems to refer to, though it is not exactly word for word as here, yet the sense is the same: God hath given them the spirit of slumber ; or of stupidity and insensibility, so that they were as persons in a deep sleep; their senses locked up, without any knowledge of, or concern about, the danger they were in; having no sense of sin, or of the need of a Saviour; or of their being upon the borders of eternal ruin and damnation, or of any ways and means to escape it; but careless and secure, as persons fast asleep in the midst of the sea, or upon the top of a mast, who, when stricken and beaten, feel it not; but if by jogging are awaked at all, immediately return to sleep again, and so sleep the sleep of eternal death: eyes that they should not see ; which being closed by the deep sleep and stupidity of mind they were judicially given up to, could see no beauty in Christ, wherefore they should desire him; none of the glories and excellencies of his person, blood, righteousness, and sacrifice; noticing amiable and agreeable in his Gospel, and the truths of it; nor had they any light in the prophets of the Old Testament, which were so remarkably fulfilled in him; their minds were blinded, a vail was upon their hearts, and which remains to this day: and ears that they should not hear ; for persons in a sleep, as their eyes are closed that they cannot see, so their ears are stopped that they cannot hear: and thus it was with these Jews, the awful judgment being upon them; they were uncircumcised in heart and ears; they were like the deaf adder, stopping their ears to the charming voice of Christ in the Gospel; and being given up in a judicial way, could neither understand his speech, nor hear his word: and this spirit of stupidity and insensibility, as it appeared in the times of Isaiah, so it continued unto this day ; the then present time, in which the apostle lived; and has continued ever since, at least in part, and will until the fulness of the Gentiles is brought in. These passages, with some others following, are produced by the apostle out of their own prophets, to take off their resentment against him; and lest, he should be thought to be severe upon them, when he said no more of them, but what had been prophesied long before concerning them. So Jarchi on ( Isaiah 29:10); says, that Isaiah prophesies lary y[wp l[ , concerning the transgressors of Israel.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-10 - There was a chosen
    remnant of believing Jews, who had righteousness an life by faith in Jesus Christ. These were kept according to the election of grace. If then this election was of grace, it could not be of works, either performed or foreseen. Every truly good disposition in a fallen creature must be the effect, therefore it cannot be the cause of the grace of God bestowed on him. Salvation from the first to the last must be either of grace or of debt. These things are so directl contrary to each other that they cannot be blended together. God glorifies his grace by changing the hearts and tempers of the rebellious. How then should they wonder and praise him! The Jewis nation were as in a deep sleep, without knowledge of their danger, or concern about it; having no sense of their need of the Saviour, or of their being upon the borders of eternal ruin. David, having by the Spirit foretold the sufferings of Christ from his own people, the Jews foretells the dreadful judgments of God upon them for it, Ps 69. Thi teaches us how to understand other prayers of David against his enemies; they are prophecies of the judgments of God, not expression of his own anger. Divine curses will work long; and we have our eye darkened, if we are bowed down in worldly-mindedness.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    8. It is written.
    Three quotations follow, two of which we blended in this verse: Isa. xxix. 10; Deut. xxix. 3. 55 Hath given (odwken). Heb., poured out. Sept., given to drink.

    Slumber (katanuxewv). Heb., deep sleep. Only here in the New Testament. Lit., pricking or piercing, compunction. Compare the kindred verb katenughsan were pricked, Acts ii. 37. Rev. renders stupor, the secondary meaning; properly the stupefaction following a wound or blow.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    11:8 {A spirit of stupor} (pneuma katanuxe"s). The quotation is a combination of #De 19:4; Isa 29:10; 6:9f. this phrase is from #Isa 29:10. katanuxis is a late and rare word from katanussw, to prick or stick (#Ac 2:37), in LXX, here only in N.T., one example in _Pelagia-Legende_. The torpor seems the result of too much sensation, dulled by incitement into apathy. {That they should not see} (tou m blepein). Genitive articular infinitive of negative purpose. {That they should not hear} (tou me akouein). So here also. See Stephen's speech (#Ac 7:51f.).
