Romans 10

1:1 called (f-7) 'A called apostle,' i.e. an apostle by (divine) calling. Cf. ver. 7 'called saints,' and see note there.10:1 delight (i-3) i.e. his good pleasure, the thought that delighted him. The order of the words gives the force of 'own,' or an emphatic 'my.' The connection of the beginning of the phrase with 'for salvation' is not very grammatical; but this abruptness of style is usual with Paul. See Note, ch. 9.3. them (k-17) Some authorities have 'for Israel,' but 'for them' is the more correct reading, and, occupied as the apostle is with his subject, is far more beautiful. 'For salvation' is perhaps a little obscure; but what he says is, what would satisfy his heart was that; and his prayers tended that way, not to their judgment, evil as they were, and rejecters of Christ. But the judgment was not yet revealed. 10:5 law, (a-13) See Lev. 18.5. 10:6 thus. (b-7) See Deut. 30.12-14. 10:8 preach. (c-25) Lit. 'herald,' as vers. 14,15. 10:9 Lord, (d-11) Or '[the] Lord Jesus.' 10:10 believed (e-6) Or 'man believes.' 'Is believed' is literal, and sufficiently intelligible. 10:11 says, (f-4) See Isa. 28.16. 10:13 saved. (g-16) See Joel 2.32. 10:15 written, (h-15) See Isa. 52.7. 10:16 says, (i-12) See Isa. 53.1. report? (k-18) The Greek word for 'report,' here and twice in ver. 17, includes both what is heard and the hearing. 10:18 world. (l-28) See Ps. 19.4. 10:19 says, (m-10) See Deut. 32.21. through (n-17) through (n-24) Epi, 'through,' signifies the occasion or condition under which a thing happens, not the means of, as an instrument. 'through' expresses this more nearly than 'by.' See Note, ch. 5.14, 'in.' 10:20 says, (o-7) See Isa. 65.1. 10:21 says, (p-5) See Isa. 65.2. opposing. (q-21) Or 'contradicting.' 'Disobeying' or 'not believing' is apeitheo, as chs. 2.8; 11.30,31; 15.31. see Note e, John 3.36.
