Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Romans 15:18-22

_ _ For I will not dare to speak of any — “to speak aught”

_ _ of those things which Christ hath not wrought by me — a modest, though somewhat obscure form of expression, meaning, “I will not dare to go beyond what Christ hath wrought by me” — in which form accordingly the rest of the passage is expressed. Observe here how Paul ascribes all the success of his labors to the activity of the living Redeemer, working in and by him.

_ _ by word and deed — by preaching and working; which latter he explains in the next clause.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Romans 15:17-21.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Romans 15:18

By word — By the power of the Spirit. By deed — Namely, through "mighty signs and wonders."

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Romans 15:18

For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which (n) Christ hath not wrought by me, to make the Gentiles obedient, by word and deed,

(n) Christ was so with me in all things, and by all means, that even if I had wanted to, yet I cannot say what he has done by me to bring the Gentiles to obey the gospel.
