Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Romans 11:25

_ _ For I would not ... that ye should be ignorant of this mystery — The word “mystery,” so often used by our apostle, does not mean (as with us) something incomprehensible, but “something before kept secret, either wholly or for the most part, and now only fully disclosed” (compare Romans 16:25; 1 Corinthians 2:7-10; Ephesians 1:9, Ephesians 1:10; Ephesians 3:3-6, Ephesians 3:9, Ephesians 3:10).

_ _ lest ye should be wise in your own conceits — as if ye alone were in all time coming to be the family of God.

_ _ that blindness — “hardness”

_ _ in part is happened to — “hath come upon”

_ _ Israel — that is, hath come partially, or upon a portion of Israel.

_ _ until the fulness of the Gentiles be — “have”

_ _ come in — that is, not the general conversion of the world to Christ, as many take it; for this would seem to contradict the latter part of this chapter, and throw the national recovery of Israel too far into the future: besides, in Romans 11:15, the apostle seems to speak of the receiving of Israel, not as following, but as contributing largely to bring about the general conversion of the world — but, “until the Gentiles have had their full time of the visible Church all to themselves while the Jews are out, which the Jews had till the Gentiles were brought in.” (See Luke 21:24).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Romans 11:1-32.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Romans 11:25

St. Paul calls any truth known but to a few, a mystery. Such had been the calling of the gentiles: such was now the conversion of the Jews. Lest ye should be wise in your own conceits — Puffed up with your present advantages; dreaming that ye are the only church; or that the church of Rome cannot fail. Hardness in part is happened to Israel, till — Israel therefore is neither totally nor finally rejected. The fullness of the gentiles be come in — Till there be a vast harvest amongst the heathens.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Romans 11:25

(13) For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your (b) own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be (c) come in.

(13) The blindness of the Jews is neither so universal that the Lord has no elect in that nation, neither will it be continual: for there will be a time in which they also (as the prophets have foretold) will effectually embrace that which they now so stubbornly for the most part reject and refuse.

(b) That you are not proud within yourselves.

(c) Into the Church.
