Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Romans 10:5-10.


Romans 10:9

_ _ That if thou shalt, etc. — So understanding the words, the apostle is here giving the language of the true method of justification; and this sense we prefer (with Calvin, Beza, Ferme, Locke, Jowett). But able interpreters render the words, “For,” or “Because if thou shalt,” etc. [Vulgate, Luther, De Wette, Stuart, Philippi, Alford, Revised Version]. In this case, these are the apostle’s own remarks, confirming the foregoing statements as to the simplicity of the gospel method of salvation.

_ _ confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus — that is, probably, “If thou shalt confess Jesus [to be] the Lord,” which is the proper manifestation or evidence of faith (Matthew 10:32; 1 John 4:15). This is put first merely to correspond with the foregoing quotation — “in thy mouth and in thine heart.” So in 1 Peter 1:10 the “calling of believers” is put before their “election,” as that which is first “made sure,” although in point of time it comes after it.

_ _ and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised — “that God raised”

_ _ him from the dead, etc. — (See on Romans 4:25). In Romans 10:10 the two things are placed in their natural order.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Romans 10:9

If thou confess with thy mouth — Even in time of persecution, when such a confession may send thee to the lions.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Romans 10:9

(6) That if thou shalt (g) confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that (h) God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

(6) That is indeed true faith which is settled not only in the head, but also in the heart of man, of which we also give testimony by our outward life, and which serves Christ as our one and only Saviour, even as he sets forth himself in his word.

(g) If you profess plainly, sincerely, and openly, that you take Jesus alone to be thy Lord and Saviour.

(h) The Father, who is said to have raised the Son from the dead: and this is not spoken to exclude the divinity of the Son, but to set forth the Father's plan, with regard to our redemption in the resurrection of the Son.
