Romans 15:26

_ _ For, etc. — better, “For Macedonia and Achaia have thought good to make a certain contribution for the poor of the saints which are at Jerusalem.” (See Acts 24:17). “They have thought it good; and their debtors verily they are”; that is, “And well they may, considering what the Gentile believers owe to their Jewish brethren.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Romans 15:22-29.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Romans 15:26

The poor of the saints that are in Jerusalem — It can by no means be inferred from this expression, that the community of goods among the Christians was then ceased. All that can be gathered from it is, that in this time of extreme dearth, Acts 11:28-29, some of the church in Jerusalem were in want; the rest being barely able to subsist themselves, but not to supply the necessities of their brethren.
