Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Romans 1:13

_ _ oftentimes I purposed to come unto you, but was let — hindered.

_ _ hitherto — chiefly by his desire to go first to places where Christ was not known (Romans 15:20-24).

_ _ that I might have some fruit — of my ministry

_ _ among you also, even as among other Gentiles — The GENTILE origin of the Church at Rome is here so explicitly stated, that those who conclude, merely from the Jewish strain of the argument, that they must have been mostly Israelites, decide in opposition to the apostle himself. (But see on Introduction to this Epistle.)

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Romans 1:8-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Romans 1:13

Brethren — A frequent, holy, simple, sweet, and yet grand, appellation. The apostles but rarely address persons by their names; 'O ye Corinthians," "O Timotheus." St. Paul generally uses this appellation, " Brethren;" sometimes in exhortation, " My beloved," or, " My beloved brethren;" St. James, "Brethren," "My brethren," My beloved brethren;" St. Peter and Jude always, " Beloved;" St. John frequently, " Beloved;" once, " Brethren;" oftener than once, My little children." Though I have been hindered hitherto — Either by

business, see Romans 15:22; or

persecution, 1 Thessalonians 2:2; or

the Spirit, Acts 16:7.

That I might have some fruit — Of my ministerial labours. Even as I have already had from the many churches I have planted and watered among the other gentiles.
