    SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:33

    ¿Quin acusar a los escogidos de Dios? Dios es el que los justifica.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Romans 8:33

    Verse 33. This and the two following verses contain a string of
    questions, most appropriately introduced and most powerfully urged, tending to show the safety of the state of those who have believed the Gospel of the grace of God. I shall lay these verses down as they are pointed by the best Greek critics:- "Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect?-God who justifieth? Who is he that condemneth?- Christ who died? or, rather, who is risen again? He, who is at the right hand of God? He, who maketh intercession for us? Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?-Tribulation? or distress? or persecution? or famine? or nakedness? or peril? or sword?" In all these questions the apostle intimates that if neither GOD nor CHRIST would bring any charge against them who love him, none else could. And as God justifies through Christ who died, consequently no charge can lie against these persons, as God alone could produce any; and He, so far from doing this, has justified them-freely forgiven their trespasses.

    For the proper meaning and sense of the terms chosen, elect, called, &c., &c., see the discourse prefixed to this epistle; and especially sect. vi. p. 19, &c., and sect. vii. p. 23, &c.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 33. Who shall lay anything to the charge of God's elect ? etc..] The elect of God are a certain select number of persons, whom he has so loved, as of his sovereign good will and pleasure, to choose in Christ before the foundation of the world, unto eternal life and salvation, by certain ways and means of his own appointing, as sanctification and faith, so that they are peculiarly his: but are these persons chargeable with nothing criminal? yes, with Adam's sin; with a want of original righteousness; with multitudes of sins before conversion, some of them with very great ones; and all, even after conversion, with frequent infirmities and backslidings: and will none rise up and exhibit charges of this nature against them? yes, even now, they very often bring charges against themselves; they are very apt to charge one another; Satan, the accuser of the brethren, lays many things to their charge very frequently, and so do the men of the world; but all these charges avail nothing, since none of the divine persons, Father, Son, and Spirit, lay anything against them: not God the Father, for it is God that justifieth ; he against whom sin is committed, who is the lawgiver, and the righteous judge, justifies them from every charge; not by teaching them the way of justification, nor by infusing righteousness into them, or on account of any works of righteousness done by them, but by pronouncing them righteous through the imputation of the righteousness of his Son unto them: observe, that God's elect, as such, are the objects of justification; which proves the eternity of it; the speciality of it as belonging to particular persons, and the everlasting security and continuance of it.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 32-39 - All things whatever, in
    heaven and earth, are not so great a display of God's free love, as the gift of his coequal Son to be the atonement of the cross for the sin of man; and all the rest follows upon union with him, and interest in him. All things, all which can be the causes of means of any real good to the faithful Christian. He that has prepare a crown and a kingdom for us, will give us what we need in the way to it. Men may justify themselves, though the accusations are in ful force against them; but if God justifies, that answers all. By Chris we are thus secured. By the merit of his death he paid our debt. Yea rather that is risen again. This is convincing evidence that Divin justice was satisfied. We have such a Friend at the right hand of God all power is given to him. He is there, making intercession. Believer does your soul say within you, Oh that he were mine! and oh that I wer his; that I could please him and live to him! Then do not toss you spirit and perplex your thoughts in fruitless, endless doubtings, but as you are convinced of ungodliness, believe on Him who justifies the ungodly. You are condemned, yet Christ is dead and risen. Flee to Hi as such. God having manifested his love in giving his own Son for us can we think that any thing should turn aside or do away that love Troubles neither cause nor show any abatement of his love. Whateve believers may be separated from, enough remains. None can take Chris from the believer: none can take the believer from Him; and that is enough. All other hazards signify nothing. Alas, poor sinners! thoug you abound with the possessions of this world, what vain things ar they! Can you say of any of them, Who shall separate us? You may be removed from pleasant dwellings, and friends, and estates. You may eve live to see and seek your parting. At last you must part, for you mus die. Then farewell, all this world accounts most valuable. And what hast thou left, poor soul, who hast not Christ, but that which tho wouldest gladly part with, and canst not; the condemning guilt of all thy sins! But the soul that is in Christ, when other things are pulle away, cleaves to Christ, and these separations pain him not. Yea, when death comes, that breaks all other unions, even that of the soul an body, it carries the believer's soul into the nearest union with it beloved Lord Jesus, and the full enjoyment of him for ever __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    33. Shall lay - to the charge (egkalesei). Only here by
    Paul. Frequent in Acts. See xix. 38, 40; xxiii. 28, 29; xxvi. 2, 7. Lit., "to call something in one." Hence call to account; bring a charge against.

    The following clauses are differently arranged by expositors. I prefer the succession of four interrogatives: Who shall lay? etc. Is it God? etc. Who is He that condemneth? Is it Christ? etc. 47

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    8:33 {Who shall lay anything to the charge of God's elect?} (tis egkalesei kata eklekt"n qeou?). Future active indicative of egkalew, old verb, to come forward as accuser (forensic term) in case in court, to impeach, as in #Ac 19:40; 23:29; 26:2, the only N.T. examples. Satan is the great Accuser of the brethren. {It is God that justifieth} (qeos ho dikaiwn). God is the Judge who sets us right according to his plan for justification (#3:21-31). The Accuser must face the Judge with his charges.
