Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Romans 16:2

_ _ Receive her in the Lord — that is, as a genuine disciple of the Lord Jesus.

_ _ as — “so as”

_ _ becometh saints — so as saints should receive saints.

_ _ assist her in whatsoever business she hath — “may have”

_ _ need of you — some private business of her own.

_ _ for she hath been a succourer of many, and of myself also — (See Psalms 41:1-3; 2 Timothy 1:16-18).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Romans 16:1-16.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Romans 16:2

In the Lord — That is, for the Lord's sake, and in a Christian manner. St. Paul seems fond of this expression.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Romans 16:2

That ye receive her in the (a) Lord, as becometh saints, and that ye assist her in whatsoever business she hath need of you: for she hath been a succourer of many, and of myself also.

(a) For Christ's sake, which appropriately belongs to the Christians, for the heathen philosophers have a resemblance of the same virtues.
