John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Romans 9:9

For this is the word of the promise — By the power of which Isaac was conceived, and not by the power of nature. Not, Whosoever is born of thee shall be blessed, but, At this time — Which I now appoint. I will come, and Sarah shall have a son — And he shall inherit the blessing. Genesis 18:10.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Romans 9:9

(6) For this [is] the word of promise, At this time will I come, and Sara shall have a son.

(6) A reason of that application: because Isaac was born by the power of the promise, and therefore he was not chosen, no, he was not at all, except by the free will of God: by which it follows that the promise is the fountain of predestination, and not the flesh, from which promise the particular election proceeds, that is, that the elect are born elect, and not that they are first born, and then after elected, by God who predestinates.
