Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Romans 15:31

_ _ That I may be delivered from them that do not believe — “that do not obey,” that is, the truth, by believing it; as in Romans 2:8.

_ _ in Judea — He saw the storm that was gathering over him in Judea, which, if at all, would certainly burst upon his head when he reached the capital; and the event too clearly showed the correctness of these apprehensions.

_ _ and that my service which I have for Jerusalem — (See on Romans 15:25-28).

_ _ may be accepted of — “prove acceptable to”

_ _ the saints — Nor was he without apprehension lest the opposition he had made to the narrow jealousy of the Jewish converts against the free reception of their Gentile brethren, should make this gift of theirs to the poor saints at Jerusalem less welcome than it ought to be. He would have the Romans therefore to join him in wrestling with God that this gift might be gratefully received, and prove a cement between the two parties. But further.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Romans 15:30-33.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Romans 15:31

That I may be delivered — He is thus urgent from a sense of the importance of his life to the church. Otherwise he would have rejoiced "to depart, and to be with Christ." And that my service may be acceptable — In spite of all their prejudices; to the end the Jewish and gentile believers may be knit together in tender love.
