_ _ by patient continuance in well-doing, etc. — Compare Luke 8:15 : “That on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience”; denoting the enduring and progressive character of the new life.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Romans 2:1-16.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Romans 2:7

To them that seek for glory — For pure love does not exclude faith, hope, desire, 1 Corinthians 15:58.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Romans 2:7

To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for (d) glory and honour and immortality, eternal life:

(d) Glory which follows good works, which he does not lay out before us as though there were any that could attain to salvation by his own strength, but, he lays this condition of salvation before us, which no man can perform, to bring men to Christ, who alone justifies the believers, as he himself concludes; see (Romans 2:21-22).
