Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentRomans 8:27
- He that searcheth (o eraunwn).
- God (1 Samuel 16:7).
- According to the will of God (kata teon).
- See 2 Corinthians 7:9-11 for this phrase kata teon (according to God). The Holy Spirit is the "other Paraclete" (John 14:16) who pleads God's cause with us as Christ is our Paraclete with the Father (1 John 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."
