Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Romans 12:15

_ _ Rejoice with them that rejoice; and weep — the “and” should probably be omitted.

_ _ with them that weep — What a beautiful spirit of sympathy with the joys and sorrows of others is here inculcated! But it is only one charming phase of the unselfish character which belongs to all living Christianity. What a world will ours be when this shall become its reigning spirit! Of the two, however, it is more easy to sympathize with another’s sorrows than his joys, because in the one case he needs us; in the other not. But just for this reason the latter is the more disinterested, and so the nobler.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Romans 12:1-21.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Romans 12:15

Rejoice — The direct opposite to weeping is laughter; but this does not so well suit a Christian.
