Not illustrated. 1869 edition. Excerpt: ...12. 17. Through the whole world--This joyful news spreading everywhere, that there were Christians in the imperial eity. And the goodness and wisdom of God established faith also in the chief eities; in Jerusalem and Rome particularly, thut from thence it might be diffused to all nations. 9 God whom 1 serve, as an apostle, with my spirit, (not only with my body, bat with my soul, ) in the gospel, by preaching it. 10 Always--In my solemn addresses to God. If by any means now at length--This accumulation of partieles deelares the strength of his desire. 11 That I may impart to you, by lay;ng on of hands, prayer, preaching the gospel, private conversation, ) some spiritual gift--With sach gifts the Corinthians, who had enjoyed the presence of St. Paul, abounded; 1 Cor. i. 7. xii. 1. xiv. 1. So did the Gulatians also; Gal. iii. 6. And all those churches visited bythe apostles, had peculiar advantages of this kind, from the laying on of their hands; Acts xix. t; viii. 17, &c. 2 Tim. i. 6. But as yet the Romans wore mnch inferior to them in this respect, for which reason the apostle in ch. xii. says little of their spiritual gifts. He therefore desires to impart some, that they might be estab lished; for by these was the testimony of Christ confirmed among them. That St. Peter had no more been at Rome than St. Paul, at the time when this epistle was written, appears from its general tenor, and from this verse. For otherwise what St. Paul wished to impart to the Romans, would have been imparted already by St. Peter. 12 That is, I long to be comforted--by the mutual faith both of you and me--He not only assoeiates the Romans with, but even prefers them before himself. 13 Brethren--A holy, simple, sweet, yet grand appellation. The apostles rarely.
