    King James Bible - Romans 4:19

    And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sara's womb:

    World English Bible

    Without being weakened in faith, he didn't consider his own
    body, already having been worn out, (he being about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah's womb.

    Douay-Rheims - Romans 4:19

    And he was not weak in faith; neither did he consider his own
    body now dead, whereas he was almost an hundred years old, nor the dead womb of Sara.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own
    body now dead, when he was about a hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah's womb.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:19

    Y no se enflaqueci en la fe, ni consider su cuerpo ya muerto (siendo ya de casi cien aos) ni muerta la matriz de Sara;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Romans 4:19

    Verse 19. He considered not his own
    body now dead] He showed at once the correctness and energy of his faith: God cannot lie; Abraham can believe. It is true that, according to the course of nature, he and Sarah are so old that they cannot have children; but God is almighty, and can do whatsoever he will, and will fulfill his promise. This was certainly a wonderful degree of faith; as the promise stated that it was in his posterity that all the nations of the earth were to be blessed; that he had, as yet, no child by Sarah; that he was 100 years old; that Sarah was 90; and that, added to the utter improbability of her bearing at that age, she had ever been barren before. All these were so many reasons why he should not credit the promise; yet he believed; therefore it might be well said, ver. 20, that he staggered not at the promise, though every thing was unnatural and improbable; but he was strong in faith, and, by this almost inimitable confidence, gave glory to God. It was to God's honour that his servant put such unlimited confidence in him; and he put this confidence in him on the rational ground that God was fully able to perform what he had promised.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 19. And being not
    weak in faith , etc..] Abraham was not weak in the exercise of his faith, on the promise of God; nor was his faith weakened about the accomplishment of it, neither by the length of time after the promise was made, nor by the seeming insuperable difficulties of nature which attended it; for he considered not his own body now dead . The Alexandrian copy reads without the negative, he considered his own body now dead, and so the Syriac version: which makes his faith the greater, that though he did consider his case, yet his faith was not weakened: the phrase, his body now dead, is an euphemism of the merebrum virile, which by the Jews, when unfit for generation, is called tm rba , merebrum emortuum f66 : when he was about an hundred years old ; not being quite an hundred years of age, wanting a year or thereabout: neither yet the deadness of Sarah's womb ; how unfit she was to conceive and bear children: now though he might consider these things in his mind, yet they did not dwell upon his mind, nor he upon them; at least he did not consider them, so as to distrust the divine promise.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 13-22 - The
    promise was made to Abraham long before the law. It points a Christ, and it refers to the promise, Ge 12:3. In Thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. The law worketh wrath, by showin that every transgressor is exposed to the Divine displeasure. As God intended to give men a title to the promised blessings, so he appointe it to be by faith, that it might be wholly of grace, to make it sure to all who were of the like precious faith with Abraham, whether Jews of Gentiles, in all ages. The justification and salvation of sinners, the taking to himself the Gentiles who had not been a people, were gracious calling of things which are not, as though they were; and thi giving a being to things that were not, proves the almighty power of God. The nature and power of Abraham's faith are shown. He believe God's testimony, and looked for the performance of his promise, firml hoping when the case seemed hopeless. It is weakness of faith, tha makes a man lie poring on the difficulties in the way of a promise Abraham took it not for a point that would admit of argument or debate Unbelief is at the bottom of all our staggerings at God's promises. The strength of faith appeared in its victory over fears. God honour faith; and great faith honours God. It was imputed to him for righteousness. Faith is a grace that of all others gives glory to God Faith clearly is the instrument by which we receive the righteousnes of God, the redemption which is by Christ; and that which is the instrument whereby we take or receive it, cannot be the thing itself nor can it be the gift thereby taken and received. Abraham's faith di not justify him by its own merit or value, but as giving him a part in Christ.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    19. Being not
    weak in faith he considered not (mh asqenhsav th pistei ou katenohsen). The best texts omit ouj not before considered. According to this the rendering is as Rev., he considered, etc. Being not weak or weakened: (Rev.) is an accompanying circumstance to he considered. He considered all these unfavorable circumstances without a weakening of faith. The preposition kata in katenohsen considered, is intensive - attentively. He fixed his eye upon the obstacles.

    Dead (nenekrwmenon). The participle is passive, slain. Used here hyperbolically. Hence, Rev., as good as dead.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    4:19 {Without being weakened in faith} (m asthensas ti pistei). "Not becoming weak in faith." Ingressive first aorist active participle with negative me. {Now as good as dead} (ede nenekrwmenon). Perfect passive participle of nekrow, "now already dead." B omits ede. He was, he knew, too old to become father of a child. {About} (pou). The addition of pou (somewhere, about) "qualifies the exactness of the preceding numeral" (Vaughan). The first promise of a son to Abraham and Sarah came (#Ge 15:3f.) before the birth of Ishmael (86 when Ishmael was born). The second promise came when Abraham was 99 years old (#Ge 17:1), calling himself 100 (#Ge 17:17).
