Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Romans 14:11-12

_ _ For it is written — (Isaiah 45:23).

_ _ As I live, saith the LordHebrew, Jehovah.

_ _ every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God — consequently, shall bow to the award of God upon their character and actions.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Romans 14:11

As I live — An oath proper to him, because he only possesseth life infinite and independent. It is Christ who is here termed both Lord and God; as it is he to whom we live, and to whom we die. Every tongue shall confess to God — Shall own him as their rightful Lord; which shall then only be accomplished in its full extent. The Lord grant we may find mercy in that day; and may it also be imparted to those who have differed from us! yea, to those who have censured and condemned us for things which we have done from a desire to please him, or refused to do from a fear of offending him. Isaiah 45:23

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Romans 14:11

For it is written, [As] I (k) live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall (l) confess to God.

(k) This is a form of an oath, proper to God alone, for he and none but he lives, and has his being of himself.

(l) Will acknowledge be to be from God.
