Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Romans 14:19

_ _ the things, etc. — more simply, “the things of peace, and the things of mutual edification.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Romans 14:1-23.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Romans 14:19

Peace and edification are closely joined. Practical divinity tends equally to peace and to edification. Controversial divinity less directly tends to edification, although sometimes, as they of old, we cannot build without it, Nehemiah 4:17.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Romans 14:19

(18) Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.

(18) A general conclusion: the use of this liberty, indeed, and our whole life, ought to be concerned with the edifying of one another, insomuch that we consider that thing unlawful, by reason of the offence of our brother, which is of itself pure and lawful.
