Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Romans 1:11-12.


Romans 1:12

_ _ That is, that I may be comforted together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me — Not wishing to “lord it over their faith,” but rather to be a “helper of their joy,” the apostle corrects his former expressions: my desire is to instruct you and do you good, that is, for us to instruct and do one another good: in giving I shall also receive” [Jowett]. “Nor is he insincere in so speaking, for there is none so poor in the Church of Christ who may not impart to us something of value: it is only our malignity and pride that hinder us from gathering such fruit from every quarter” [Calvin]. How “widely different is the apostolic style from that of the court of Papal Rome!” [Bengel].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Romans 1:8-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Romans 1:12

That is, I long to be comforted by the mutual faith both of you and me — He not only associates the Romans with, but even prefers them before, himself. How different is this style of the apostle from that of the modern court of Rome!

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Romans 1:12

That is, that (t) I may be comforted together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me.

(t) Though Paul was ever so excellent, yet in teaching the church, he might be instructed by it.
