Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Romans 15:23-24.


Romans 15:24

_ _ whensoever I take my journey into Spain — Whether this purpose was ever accomplished has been much disputed, as no record of it nor allusion to it anywhere occurs. Those who think our apostle was never at large after his first imprisonment at Rome will of course hold that it never was; while those who are persuaded, as we are, that he underwent a second imprisonment, prior to which he was at large for a considerable time after his first, incline naturally to the other opinion.

_ _ I will come to you — If these words were not originally in the text, and there is weighty evidence against them, they must at least be inserted as a necessary supplement.

_ _ in my journey, etc. — “as I pass through by you, to be set forward on my journey thither, if first I be somewhat filled with your company”: that is, “I should indeed like to stay longer with you than I can hope to do, but I must, to some extent at least, have my fill of your company.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Romans 15:22-29.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Romans 15:24

Into Spain — Where the gospel had not yet been preached. If first I may be somewhat satisfied with your company — How remarkable is the modesty with which he speaks! They might rather desire to be satisfied with his. Somewhat satisfied — Intimating the shortness of his stay; or, perhaps, that Christ alone can throughly satisfy the soul.
