Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Romans 11:13-14

_ _ I speak — “am speaking”

_ _ to you Gentiles — another proof that this Epistle was addressed to Gentile believers. (See on Romans 1:13).

_ _ I magnify — “glorify”

_ _ mine office — The clause beginning with “inasmuch” should be read as a parenthesis.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Romans 11:1-32.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Romans 11:13

I magnify my office — Far from being ashamed of ministering to the gentiles, I glory therein; the rather, as it may be a means of provoking my brethren to jealousy.

(8) For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, (m) I magnify mine office:
