    SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:27

    Mas el que escudria los corazones, sabe qu es el deseo del Espíritu, que conforme a Dios, demanda por los santos.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Romans 8:27

    Verse 27. He maketh
    intercession for the saints] The word entugcanw signifies to apply one's self to a person in behalf of another; to intercede or negotiate for. Our Lord makes intercession for us, by negotiating and managing, as our friend and agent, all the affairs pertaining to our salvation.

    And the Spirit of God makes intercession for the saints, not by supplication to God on their behalf, but by directing and qualifying their supplications in a proper manner, by his agency and influence upon their hearts; which, according to the Gospel scheme, is the peculiar work and office of the Holy Spirit. See Taylor.

    According to the will of God.] kata qeon? According to the mind, intention, or design of God. And thus the prayers which we offer up, and the desires which subsist in the unutterable groanings, are all such as are pleasing in the sight of God. So that God, whose is the Spirit, and who is acquainted with the mind of the Spirit, knows what he means when he leads the saints to express themselves in words, desires, groans, sighs, or tears: in each God reads the language of the Holy Ghost, and prepares the answer according to the request.

    From all this we learn that a fluency in prayer is not essential to praying: a man may pray most powerfully in the estimation of God, who is not able to utter even one word. The unutterable groan is big with meaning, and God understands it, because it contains the language of his own Spirit.

    Some desires are too mighty to be expressed; there is no language expressive enough to give them proper form and distinct vocal sound: such desires show that they came from God; and as they came from him, so they express what God is disposed to do, and what he has purposed to do. This is a matter of great encouragement to all those who are agonizing to enter in at the strait gate.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 27. And he that searcheth the hearts , etc..] This is peculiar to God, and a periphrasis of him; angels, neither good nor bad, can search into the hearts of men; one man cannot know the heart of another, nor any man fully know his own; this is the prerogative of God: and he knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit ; not the spirit of men, but of God: that affectionate desire and meaning of the Spirit of God, in the unalterable groans of the saints; he knows the wise meaning there is in them, for so fronhma may signify, and is opposed to the carnal mind, or wisdom of the flesh, which desires foolish things. The searcher of hearts knows this, not barely by his omniscience, but he regards it, approves of it, attends, and gives an answer to it; which is no small encouragement to pray, though it be but with sighs and groans unutterable; since the omniscient God understands, and respects such kind of prayer: and the reason is, because he , the Spirit of God, maketh intercession for the saints, according to the will of God ; the persons for whom he intercedes are saints: to whom Christ is made sanctification; who are called to be saints; are sanctified by the Spirit of God, and walk after him: now such are the objects of God's delight, they are chosen by him, preserved in Christ, and have his righteousness imputed to them; to these he has made known his Gospel, has given his grace, and will at last the inheritance; so that intercession made for such will certainly be regarded: it may be rendered, he maketh intercession for holy things according to God; for spiritual blessings, divine favours, things that belong to God; or divine things, which are agreeably to his nature and will: and since it is the Holy Spirit that makes intercession, and the persons are holy for whom he makes it, and this is made for holy things, and all according to the will of God, which the Spirit of God must fully know, saints may be confident of the prevalence and success of such intercession.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 26, 27 - Though the
    infirmities of Christians are many and great, so that the would be overpowered if left to themselves, yet the Holy Spiri supports them. The Spirit, as an enlightening Spirit, teaches us what to pray for; as a sanctifying Spirit, works and stirs up prayin graces; as a comforting Spirit, silences our fears, and helps us ove all discouragements. The Holy Spirit is the spring of all desire toward God, which are often more than words can utter. The Spirit wh searches the hearts, can perceive the mind and will of the spirit, the renewed mind, and advocates his cause. The Spirit makes intercession to God, and the enemy prevails not.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    8:27 {He that searcheth} (ho eraun"n).
    God (#1Sa 16:7). {According to the will of God} (kata qeon). See #2Co 7:9-11 for this phrase kata qeon (according to God). The Holy Spirit is the "other Paraclete" (#Joh 14:16) who pleads God's cause with us as Christ is our Paraclete with the Father (#1Jo 2:1). But more is true as here, for the Holy Spirit interprets our prayers to God and "makes intercession for us in accord with God's will."
