Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Romans 9:24

_ _ even us, whom he hath called, etc. — rather, “Whom he hath also called, even us,” etc., in not only “afore preparing,” but in due time effectually “calling us.”

_ _ not of the Jews, etc. — better, “not from among Jews only, but also from among Gentiles.” Here for the first title in this chapter the calling of the Gentiles is introduced; all before having respect, not to the substitution of the called Gentiles for the rejected Jews, but to the choice of one portion and the rejection of another of the same Israel. Had Israel’s rejection been total, God’s promise to Abraham would not have been fulfilled by the substitution of the Gentiles in their room; but Israel’s rejection being only partial, the preservation of a “remnant,” in which the promise was made good, was but “according to the election of grace.” And now, for the first time, the apostle tells us that along with this elect remnant of Israel, it is God’s purpose to “take out of the Gentiles a people for His name” (Acts 28:14); and that subject, thus introduced, is now continued to the end of the eleventh chapter.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Romans 9:14-24.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Romans 9:24

Even us — Here the apostle comes to the other proposition, of grace free for all, whether Jew or gentile. Of the Jews — This he treats of, Romans 9:25. Of the gentiles — Treated of in the same verse.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Romans 9:24

(24) Even us, whom he hath called, not of the (a) Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?

(24) Having established the doctrine of the eternal predestination of God on both parts, that is, on the part of the reprobate as well as of the elect, he comes now to show its use, teaching us that we ought not to seek its testimony in the secret counsel of God, but by the calling which is made manifest, and set forth in the Church, propounding to us the example of the Jews and Gentiles, that the doctrine may be better perceived.

(a) He does not say that each and every one of the Jews are called, but some of the Jews, and some of the Gentiles.
