    SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:7

    diciendo : Bienaventurados aquellos cuyas iniquidades son perdonadas, y cuyos pecados son cubiertos.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Romans 4:7

    Verse 7.
    Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven] That is, the man is truly happy whose iniquities ai anomiai, whose transgressions of the law are forgiven; for by these he was exposed to the most grievous punishment. Whose sins, ai amartiai, his innumerable deviations from the strict rule of truth and righteousness, are covered-entirely removed out of sight, and thrown into oblivion. See the meaning of the word sin in the note on Gen. xiii. 13.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 7. Saying,
    blessed are they , etc..] These words are cited from ( Psalm 32:1), and contain the proof of the happiness of justified persons. In this citation the singular number is changed into the plural, to take in all sorts of men, Jews and Gentiles, and very agreeably to the sense of the original; for the word yra may be rendered blessed are they, or, O the blessednesses; that is, of everyone of them, whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered : such whom God justifies by imputing the righteousness of his Son to them, he removes their iniquities from them, which is meant by their being forgiven, and that as far as the east is from the west, ( <19A312> Psalm 103:12); he casts them behind his back, ( Isaiah 38:17), and into the depths of the sea, ( Micah 7:19), so that they shall never be found more: such whom he clothes with the robe of righteousness, and garments of salvation, ( Isaiah 61:10), their sins are covered; from the eye of divine justice, and shall never be seen more, or be brought against them to their condemnation, and therefore must be happy persons. The Jews tell us, that on the day of atonement Satan comes to accuse Israel, and he particularizes their sins, and the holy blessed God he particularizes their good works, and takes a pair of balances, and puts their sins against their good works, and weighs the one against the other; and when the two scales of the balances are alike, Satan goes to bring in other sins to overweigh; what does the holy blessed God do? he takes the sins out of the scale, and hides them wl yryprwp tjt , under his purple garment; and when Satan comes and finds no iniquity there, as it is said the iniquity of Israel shall be sought for, and there shall be none, ( Jeremiah 50:20); and when Satan sees this, he says before him, Lord of the world, thou hast taken away the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered all their sin, ( Psalm 85:2). Selah.

    The purple garment they explain by wl ymjr l wblm , his garment of mercy; which is true of the mercy of God covering the sins of his people, through the purple blood of his Son; which is the purple covering of Christ, ( Song of Solomon 3:10), under which the saints go safe to glory, and by which blood their crimson and scarlet sins are blotted out, so as never to be seen more.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-12 - To meet the views of the Jews, the apostle first refers to the exampl of Abraham, in whom the Jews gloried as their most renowned forefather However exalted in various respects, he had nothing to boast in the presence of God, being saved by grace, through faith, even as others Without noticing the years which passed before his call, and the failures at times in his obedience, and even in his faith, it wa expressly stated in Scripture that "he believed God, and it was counte to him for righteousness," Ge 15:6. From this example it is observed that if any man could work the full measure required by the law, the reward must be reckoned as a debt, which evidently was not the cas even of Abraham, seeing faith was reckoned to him for righteousness When believers are justified by faith, "their faith being counted for righteousness," their faith does not justify them as a part, small of great, of their righteousness; but as the appointed means of unitin them to Him who has chosen as the name whereby he shall be called, "the Lord our Righteousness." Pardoned people are the only blessed people It clearly appears from the Scripture, that Abraham was justifie several years before his circumcision. It is, therefore, plain tha this rite was not necessary in order to justification. It was a sign of the original corruption of human nature. And it was such a sign as wa also an outward seal, appointed not only to confirm God's promises to him and to his seed, and their obligation to be the Lord's, but likewise to assure him of his being already a real partaker of the righteousness of faith. Thus Abraham was the spiritual forefather of all believers, who walked after the example of his obedient faith. The seal of the Holy Spirit in our sanctification, making us new creatures is the inward evidence of the righteousness of faith.

    4:7 {Blessed} (makarioi). See on #Mt 5:3. {Are forgiven} (afeqesan). First aorist passive indicative of afiemi, without augment (apheithsan, regular form). Paul quotes #Ps 32:1f. and as from David. Paul thus confirms his interpretation of #Ge 15:6. {Iniquities} (anomiai). Violations of law whereas hamartiai (sins) include all kinds. {Are covered} (epekaluphthsan). First aorist passive of epikaluptw, old verb, to cover over (upon, epi) as a shroud. Only here in N.T.
