    SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:20

    tampoco dud en la promesa de Dios con desconfianza; antes fue esforzado en fe, dando gloria a Dios,

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 20. He
    staggered not at the promise of God , etc..] There is no reason to stagger at, or hesitate about any of the promises of God, since they are made by him that cannot lie; his faithfulness is engaged to perform them; with him all things are possible; every promise is in Christ, yea and amen, and never did any fail; and yet so it is, that some of God's children, through unbelief , do stagger at the promises of God; thinking either that they are too great for them, or demur upon them through difficulties which attend them: but so did not Abraham, he was strong in faith ; nothing moved him, no difficulties discouraged him, he made no demur upon the promise, nor had the least hesitation in his mind about the accomplishment of it; but was fully assured that so it would be, as God had said; and thus he was giving glory to God ; ascribing to him the glory of his veracity, faithfulness, power, grace, and goodness, as all such who are strong in faith do; such persons bring the most glory to God, and are the most comfortable in their own souls. This phrase, atwnmyhmb apqttal , to be strong or strengthened, or strengthen themselves in faith, is to be met with in Jewish writings f67 , and is particularly used of the patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; all the tribes of Israel are not said to be tnwmab yqzj , strong in their faith; only the tribe of Levi, when Moses stood in the gate and said, who is on the Lord's side, let him come unto me, ( Exodus 32:26): whoever is wtnwmab qzj , strong in his faith f68 ; and there were none in all Israel but the tribe of Levi, who were strong in their faith.

    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.

    Staggered (diekriqh). Rev., better, wavered. See on Acts xi. 12; Jas. i. 6; ii. 4. The word implies a mental struggle.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    4:20 {He wavered not through unbelief} (ou diekriqe tei apistiai). First aorist passive indicative of old and common verb diakrinw, to separate, to distinguish between, to decide between, to desert, to dispute, to be divided in one's own mind. this last sense occurs here as in #Mt 21:22; Mr 11:23; Ro 14:23; Jas 1:6. "He was not divided in his mind by unbelief" (instrumental case). {Waxed strong through faith} (enedunam"th ti pistei). First aorist passive again of endunamow, late word to empower, to put power in, in LXX and Paul and #Ac 9:22.
