Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Romans 11:34-35.


Romans 11:35

_ _ Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed to him — “and shall have recompense made to him”

_ _ again — see Job 35:7; Job 41:11. These questions, it will thus be seen, are just quotations from the Old Testament, as if to show how familiar to God’s ancient people was the great truth which the apostle himself had just uttered, that God’s plans and methods in the dispensation of His Grace have a reach of comprehension and wisdom stamped upon them which finite mortals cannot fathom, much less could ever have imagined, before they were disclosed.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Romans 11:33-36.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Romans 11:35

Given to him — Either wisdom or power?

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Romans 11:35

Or who hath (i) first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?

(i) This saying overthrows the doctrine of foreseen works and merits.
