Robertson's Word Pictures of the New Testament

Romans 8:33

Who shall lay anything to the charge of God's elect? (tiv egkalesei kata eklektwn teou?).
Future active indicative of egkalew, old verb, to come forward as accuser (forensic term) in case in court, to impeach, as in Acts 19:40; 23:29; 26:2, the only N.T. examples. Satan is the great Accuser of the brethren.

It is God that justifieth (teov o 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.
