Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Romans 10:14-15.


Romans 10:15

_ _ as it is written — (Isaiah 52:7).

_ _ How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, etc. — The whole chapter of Isaiah from which this is taken, and the three that follow, are so richly Messianic, that there can be no doubt “the glad tidings” there spoken of announce a more glorious release than of Judah from the Babylonish captivity, and the very feet of its preachers are called “beautiful” for the sake of their message.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Romans 10:12-21.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Romans 10:15

But how shall they preach, unless they be sent — Thus by a chain of reasoning, from God's will that the gentiles also should "call upon him," St. Paul infers that the apostles were sent by God to preach to the gentiles also. The feet — Their very footsteps; their coming. Isaiah 52:7.
