Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Romans 10:20

_ _ But Esaias is very bold, and saith — that is, is still plainer, and goes even the length of saying.

_ _ I was found of them that sought me not — until I sought them.

_ _ I was made — “became”

_ _ manifest unto them that asked not after me — until the invitation from Me came to them. That the calling of the Gentiles was meant by these words of the prophet (Isaiah 65:1) is manifest from what immediately follows, “I said, Behold Me, behold Me, unto a nation that was not called by My name.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Romans 10:12-21.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
