    SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:24

    Porque en esperanza somos salvos; pero la esperanza que se ve, no es esperanza; porque lo que alguno ve, no lo espera.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Romans 8:24

    Verse 24. For we are
    saved by hope] We are supported and are comfortable in the expectation we have of receiving from the hand of our God all the good we need in the troubles and adversities of this life, and of having our bodies raised from corruption and death at the general resurrection.

    Hope that is seen is not hope] As hope signifies the expectation of future good, so it necessarily supposes that the object of it is not seen, i.e. not enjoyed; for to see, in Scripture language, sometimes signifies to enjoy, as in Job vii. 7: Mine eye shall no more SEE (margin, ENJOY) good. Job ix. 25: My days flee away, and SEE no good; i.e. enjoy no prosperity. Psa. l. 23: I will SHOW the salvation of God: I will give that man to enjoy my salvation who walks uprightly. Matt. v. 8: Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall SEE God; that is, they shall enjoy his favour and blessing. See also John iii. 36; Heb. xii. 14, and 1 John iii. 2. The hope that is seen, that is, enjoyed, is no longer hope, it is fruition: and a man cannot hope for that which he has in his possession.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 24. For we are saved by hope , etc..] We who have received the firstfruits, who were in a lost perishing condition, and by nature no better than others, than the Gentiles, are saved by sin and wrath to come by Christ, with a spiritual and everlasting salvation. They were already saved in the preparations and purposes of God; in the covenant of grace; in the arms and hands of Christ, through his purchase; and as considered in him; and with respect to the inchoation and application of salvation, in effectual calling, and their right unto it by the righteousness of Christ; and with regard to the certainty of it, in faith and hope: the manner in which they are said to be saved, is by, or in hope; not that hope is the cause of salvation, but the means by which souls are brought to the enjoyment of it; salvation, or glory, is the object of it: but hope that is seen, is not hope; for what a man seeth why doth he yet hope for ? in the former clause, hope signifies the grace itself, but here the object of it; which is represented as unseen, not yet fully enjoyed, something future, and to be hoped for; as the resurrection of the dead, which is the object of hope, and is unseen, and even incredible to carnal reason, and is to come, and good foundation there is in divine revelation, to hope for it; and the hope of it is of great use to the saints, whilst in this world of trouble: eternal glory and happiness is also the object of the hope of believers; it is said to be the hope of their calling, which they are called by grace to; the hope of righteousness, which the righteousness of Christ is the ground and foundation of; and that blessed hope, the sum of their happiness; and hope laid up for them in heaven, where it is safe and secure; all which is unseen, and yet to come; but good reason there is to hope for it, since the Scriptures of truth so clearly express it; and the person, blood, and righteousness of Christ, lay such a solid foundation for hope of it: the Alexandrian copy reads, why doth he yet wait for? and so the Ethiopic version, with which agrees the Syriac version, reading the whole, for [if] we see it, why should we wait for it?

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 18-25 - The sufferings of the
    saints strike no deeper than the things of time last no longer than the present time, are light afflictions, and but for a moment. How vastly different are the sentence of the word and the sentiment of the world, concerning the sufferings of this present time Indeed the whole creation seems to wait with earnest expectation for the period when the children of God shall be manifested in the glor prepared for them. There is an impurity, deformity, and infirmity which has come upon the creature by the fall of man. There is an enmit of one creature to another. And they are used, or abused rather, by me as instruments of sin. Yet this deplorable state of the creation is in hope. God will deliver it from thus being held in bondage to man' depravity. The miseries of the human race, through their own and eac other's wickedness, declare that the world is not always to continue a it is. Our having received the first-fruits of the Spirit, quickens ou desires, encourages our hopes, and raises our expectations. Sin ha been, and is, the guilty cause of all the suffering that exists in the creation of God. It has brought on the woes of earth; it has kindle the flames of hell. As to man, not a tear has been shed, not a groa has been uttered, not a pang has been felt, in body or mind, that ha not come from sin. This is not all; sin is to be looked at as i affects the glory of God. Of this how fearfully regardless are the bul of mankind! Believers have been brought into a state of safety; but their comfort consists rather in hope than in enjoyment. From this hop they cannot be turned by the vain expectation of finding satisfactio in the things of time and sense. We need patience, our way is rough an long; but He that shall come, will come, though he seems to tarry.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    24. By
    hope (th elpidi). Better in hope. We are saved by faith. See on 1 Peter i. 3.

    Hope - not hope. Here the word is used of the object of hope. See Col. i. 5; 1 Tim. i. 1; Heb. vi. 18.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    8:24 {For by hope were we saved} (tei gar elpidi eswqemen). First aorist passive indicative of swzw. The case of elpidi is not certain, the form being the same for locative, instrumental and dative. Curiously enough either makes good sense in this context: "We were saved in hope, by hope, for hope" (of the redemption of the body).
