Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Romans 7:22

_ _ For I delight in the law of God after the inward man — “from the bottom of my heart.” The word here rendered “delight” is indeed stronger than “consent” in Romans 7:16; but both express a state of mind and heart to which the unregenerate man is a stranger.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Romans 7:14-25.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Romans 7:22

For I delight in the law of God — This is more than "I consent to," Romans 7:16. The day of liberty draws near. The inward man — Called the mind, Romans 7:23, Romans 7:25.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Romans 7:22

For I delight in the law of God after the (b) inward man:

(b) The inner man and the new man are the same, and are compared and contrasted with the old man; and neither do these words "inward man" signify man's mind and reason, and the "old man" the physical body that is subject to them, as the philosophers imagine: but by the outward man is meant whatever is either without or within a man from top to bottom, as long as that man is not born again by the grace of God.
