Farther, there is an anadiplosis in εχεις, and εχε the first simply signifies thou hast, the latter, hold fast. Whether such effects do take place, in point of fact, the apostle gives not the most distant hint here; and therefore that point must be settled elsewhere. From this passage about the observance of days, ALFORD unhappily infers that such language could not have been used if the sabbath law had been in force under the Gospel in any form. God is our master, we must live to him, as we live under his notice and by his bounty; and when we cease to live among men, we are still in his hand. This distinction between essential and non-essential truths is denied by some who affect more than ordinary zeal for the honor and truth of God. It is good neither to eat flesh, etc. (the Codex Alexandrinus and the Codex Ephraim), by the Syriac of Erpen, the Coptic and the Ethiopic, and by some of the primitive fathers. Or is made weak - Η ασθενει, from α, negative, and σθενος, strength; without mental vigor; without power sufficiently to distinguish between right and wrong, good and evil, lawful and unlawful. but even if so, Can it be used with safety to a brother's conscience?--How will it affect my brother's soul ( Romans 14:21 )? THE CONTEXT In the early church, Christians often disagreed with each other and created problems for one another. Griesbach inserts them at the end of this chapter as their proper place; and most learned men approve of this transposition. The same sentiment is expressed with equal sharpness in 1 Corinthians 8:11 . Reference is made here to the Jewish institutions, and especially their festivals; such as the passover, pentecost, feast of tabernacles, new moons, jubilee, etc. See the note on Matthew 3:2. Let us therefore follow - Far from contending about meats, drinks, and festival times, in which it is not likely that the Jews and Gentiles will soon agree, let us endeavor to the utmost of our power to promote peace and unanimity, that we may be instrumental in edifying each other, in promoting religious knowledge and piety instead of being stumbling-blocks in each other's way. (9) "Peace" among the followers of Christ is a blessing too precious to themselves, and, as a testimony to them that are without, too important, to be ruptured for trifles, even though some lesser truths be involved in these ( Romans 14:19 Romans 14:20 ). Romans 14:17â18. be evil spoken of--for the evil it does to others. Romans 6:4-5 Commentary. Do not reject any from your Christian communion because of their particular sentiments on things which are in themselves indifferent. The apostle seems to intimate that in all the above cases each must endeavor to please God, for he is accountable to him alone for his conduct in these indifferent things. NASB (UPDATED) TEXT: ROMANS 14:13-23 13 Therefore let us not judge one another anymore, but rather determine this-not to put an obstacle or a stumbling block in a brother's way. (7) With what holy jealousy ought the purity of the conscience to be guarded, since every deliberate violation of it is incipient perdition ( Romans 14:15 Romans 14:20 )! Let not then your good--that is, this liberty of yours as to Jewish meats and days, well founded though it be. Is not meat and drink - It consists not in these outward and indifferent things. Romans 14:1-9. "The Adam Clarke Commentary". The principal subject of dispute was concerning meats and days. Any thing by which he is caused to halt, to be undecisive, and undetermined; and under such an influence no man has ever yet grown in grace and in the knowledge of Jesus Christ. We shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ - Why should we then judge and condemn each other? The clause και ανεστη, and rose, is wanting in several reputable MSS., and certainly is not necessary to the text. âIâve been misbehaving, Doc, and my conscience is troubling me,â he complained.

A and I, with upwards of 100 others, together with the Slavonic, the later Syriac and Arabic, add those verses at the end of the fourteenth chapter. Romans 5:20-21 Commentary. None of us liveth to himself - The Greek writers use the phrase, ἑαυτῳ ζῃν, to signify acting according to one's own judgment, following one's own opinion. Receive ye - Associate with him; receive him into your religious fellowship; but when there, let all religious altercations be avoided. Not all believers have the same level of spiritual growth. 1. The usefulness of Romans 14 in promoting love and unity in the church becomes apparent when the two principles described above are understood and consistently applied. Romans 14 Commentary, One of over 110 Bible commentaries freely available, this commentary, by the leading authority in the Church of Christ, presents a verse level look at the Bible. He who sins against his conscience in things which every one else knows to be indifferent, will soon do it in those things in which his salvation is most intimately concerned. Romans 15:1; : We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, etc. Romans 6:1-3 Commentary. Or why dost thou - Christian Gentile, set at nought thy Christian Jewish brother, as if he were unworthy of thy regard, because he does not yet believe that the Gospel has set him free from the rites and ceremonies of the law? Meekness, humility, self-denial, and love, make for peace. Paul begins Romans 14 by speaking of the âweak in faithâ and in 15:1 he urges âwe who are strongâ to âput up with the failings of the weak.â Arland Hultgren is probably right to conclude that Paul does not use âstrongâ and âweakâ to define particular groups of people in Rome. And certainly, if the sabbath was more ancient than Judaism; if, even under Judaism, it was enshrined among the eternal sanctities of the Decalogue, uttered, as no other parts of Judaism were, amidst the terrors of Sinai; and if the Lawgiver Himself said of it when on earth, "The Son of man is LORD EVEN OF THE SABBATH DAY" (see Mark 2:28 )--it will be hard to show that the apostle must have meant it to be ranked by his readers among those vanished Jewish festival days, which only "weakness" could imagine to be still in force--a weakness which those who had more light ought, out of love, merely to bear with. To injure a man in his circumstances is bad; to injure him in his person is worse; to injure him in his reputation is still worse; and to injure his soul is worst of all. The sacrificial death is as strongly expressed as it can be, and there is no word in the New Testament that more forcibly implies eternal ruin than the verb απολλυω, from which is derived that most significant name of the Devil, ὁ Απολλυων, the Destroyer, the great universal murderer of souls. We add here alike, and make the text say what I am sure was never intended, viz. Commentaries for Romans Chapter 14 The Jewish converts cautioned against judging, and Gentile believers against despising one the other. Whatever tends to make anyone violate his conscience tends to the destruction of his soul; and he who helps, whether wittingly or no, to bring about the one is guilty of aiding to accomplish the other. It requires much prudence and watchfulness to find out the proper time of performing even a good action. (6) Though forbearance be a great Christian duty, indifference to the distinction between truth and error is not thereby encouraged. To this we may add, that without faith it is impossible to please God; every thing is wrong where this principle is wanting. Romans 6:6-7 Commentary. Romans 14:18 For he that in these things serveth Christ is acceptable to God, and approved of men. https://www.studylight.org/commentaries/acc/romans-14.html. One believeth that he may eat all things - He believes that whatsoever is wholesome and nourishing, whether herbs or flesh - whether enjoined or forbidden by the Mosaic law - may be safely and conscientiously used by every Christian. If thou hast formed this conviction in the sight of God, keep thyself in this frame before Him. What Romans 14 Does Not Say. For Christ is here--in the most emphatic terms, and yet in the most unimpassioned tone--held up as the supreme Object of the Christian's life, and of his death too;. Let us not therefore judge--"assume the office of judge over" one another; but judge this rather, &c.--a beautiful sort of play upon the word "judge," meaning, "But let this be your judgment, not to put a stumbling-block," &c. 14, 15. But why dost thou - Christian Jew, observing the rites of the Mosaic law, judge - condemn thy brother - the Christian Gentile, who does not think himself bound by this law? âAnd you want something that will strengthen your willpower?â asked the doctor. Therefore do not judge or show contempt for each other. Romans 16:26; : But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith); Romans 16:27; : To God only wise be glory through Jesus Christ for ever. 2 For one believeth that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eateth herbs. -, One man esteemeth one day above another -, We shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ -, Every one of us shall give account of himself -, Let us not, therefore, judge one another any more -, I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus -, Destroy not him with thy meat, for whom Christ died -, Let not then your good be evil spoken of -, Commentary Critical and Explanatory - Unabridged, Kretzmann's Popular Commentary of the Bible, Lange's Commentary on the Holy Scriptures. We are accountable to God for our conduct, and shall be judged at his bar; and let us consider that whatever measure we mete, the same shall be measured unto us again. The converted Jew, retaining a veneration for the law of Moses, abstained from certain meats, and was observant of certain days; while the converted Gentile, understanding that the Christian religion laid him under no obligations to such ceremonial points, had no regard to either. For it is written--( Isaiah 45:23 ). that he might be Lord both of the dead and--"and of the" living--The grand object of His death was to acquire this absolute Lordship over His redeemed, both in their living and in their dying, as His of right. stand before the judgment-seat of Christ--All the most ancient and best manuscripts read here, "the judgment-seat of God." And a Jew when in a heathen country acts thus, because he cannot tell whether the flesh which is sold in the market may be of a clean or unclean beast; whether it may not have been offered to an idol; or whether the blood may have been taken properly from it. (5) How brightly does the supreme Divinity of Christ shine out in this chapter! Others do not understand freedom about days of the week. For--"For the sake of" meat destroy not the work of apostle sees in whatever tends to violate a brother's conscience the incipient destruction of God's work (for every converted man is such)--on the same principle as "he that hateth his brother is a murderer" ( 1 John 3:15 ). In things indifferent, Christians should not condemn each other, Romans 14:1. Alford - The de binds this on to the general exhortations to mutual charity in Romans 13. 14 I know and am convinced in the Lord Jesus that nothing is unclean in itself; but to him who thinks anything to be unclean, to him it is unclean. On the other hand, he who finds that he cannot observe them in honor of God, not believing that God has enjoined them, he does not observe them at all. He that feeds on any kind of meats prohibited by the Mosaic law, with the persuasion in his mind that he may be wrong in so doing, is condemned by his conscience for doing that which he has reason to think God has forbidden. 17. For the kingdom of God--or, as we should say, Religion; that is, the proper business and blessedness for which Christians are formed into a community of renewed men in thorough subjection to God (compare 1 Corinthians 4:20 ). And--rather, "But" he that doubteth is damned--On the word "damnation," if he eat, because he eateth not of faith--On the meaning of "faith" for whatsoever is not of faith is sin--a maxim of unspeakable importance in the Christian life. Sproul writes in his commentary Romans: âLife in the kingdom is about loving the things of God and loving those for whom Christ died. Scripture: Romans 14:16â19. 12. - Who has ever given thee the right to condemn the servant of another man, in things pertaining to his own master? (11) Whenever we are in doubt as to a point of duty--where abstinence is manifestly sinless, but compliance not clearly lawful--the safe course is ever to be preferred, for to do otherwise is itself sinful.

Certainly it could not, if the sabbath were merely one of the Jewish festival days; but it will not do to take this for granted merely because it was observed under the Mosaic economy. Romans 16:25; : Now, to him that is of power to stablish you according to my Gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, (according to the revelation of the mystery which was kept secret since the world began. But our apostle, while teaching "the strong" to bear with "the weak," repeatedly intimates in this chapter where the truth really lay on the points in question, and takes care to call those who took the wrong side "the weak" ( Romans 14:1 Romans 14:2 Romans 14:14 ). Nor does Paul teach this here, but rather appeals to it as a known and recognized fact, of which he had only to remind his readers. 20. In things indifferent, Christians should not condemn each other, Romans 14:1. But if thy brother be grieved--has his weak conscience hurt with thy meat--rather, "because of meat." Romans 14:17 Parallel Verses [â See commentary â] Romans 14:17, NIV: "For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit," Romans 14:17, ESV: "For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit." And do not destroy the soul of thy Christian brother, Romans 14:15, by offending him so as to induce him to apostatize. Romans 6:11 Commentary. The first--"righteousness"--has respect to God, denoting here "rectitude," in its widest sense (as in Matthew 6:33 ); the second--"peace"--has respect to our neighbors, denoting "concord" among brethren (as is plain from Romans 14:19 ; compare Ephesians 4:3 , Colossians 3:14 Colossians 3:15 ); the third--"joy in the Holy Ghost"--has respect to ourselves. All rights reserved. Romans 5:16-17 Commentary. For whatsoever is not of faith is sin - Whatever he does, without a full persuasion of its lawfulness, (see Romans 14:22;) is to him sin; for he does it under a conviction that he may be wrong in so doing. 15 Yet if your brother is grieved because of your food, you are no longer walking in love. (2) Acceptance with God is the only proper criterion of right to Christian fellowship. 23. Biblical Commentary (Bible study) Romans 14:1-12 EXEGESIS: ROMANS 14:1â15:13. But they must settle the question with our apostle. "The strong," it will be observed, are those who knew these to be abolished under the Gospel; "the weak" are those who had scruples on this point. On any other view, the quotation to show that we shall all stand before the judgment-seat of God would be a strange proof that Christians are all amenable to Christ. every one of us shall give account of himself to God--Now, if it be remembered that all this is adduced quite incidentally, to show that CHRIST is the absolute Master of all Christians, to rule their judgments and feelings towards each other while "living," and to dispose of them "dying," the testimony which it bears to the absolute Divinity of Christ will appear remarkable. Some, who seem to be more jealous for the honor of certain doctrines than for the souls of men, enervate this terrific truth by asking how it bears upon the "perseverance of the saints"; the advocates of that doctrine thinking it necessary to explain away what is meant by "destroying the work of God" ( Romans 14:20 ), and "destroying him for whom Christ died" ( Romans 14:15 ), for fear of the doctrinal consequences of taking it nakedly; while the opponents of that doctrine are ready to ask, How could the apostle have used such language if he had believed that such a catastrophe was impossible? Yea, &c.--"But he shall be made to stand, for God is able to make him stand"; that is, to make good his standing, not at the day of judgment, of which the apostle treats in Romans 14:10 , but in the true fellowship of the Church here, in spite of thy censures. The meaning is sufficiently plain. Christians must act in all things according to the mind and will of God, and not follow their own wills. This is a genuine counterpart of heaven; righteousness without sin, Peace without inward disturbance, Joy without any kind of mental agony or distressing fear. And joy in the Holy Ghost - Solid spiritual happiness; a joy which springs from a clear sense of God's mercy; the love of God being shed abroad in the heart by the Holy Ghost. There are few readers who have not remarked that the last three verses of this epistle ( Romans 16:25-27;) appear to stand in their present place without any obvious connection; and apparently after the epistle is concluded. There are many who have such an unhappy method of doing their good acts, as not only to do little or no good by them, but a great deal of evil. It is against this backdrop that we should read Romans 14. We must not judge each other; for all judgment belongs to God, Romans 14:10-13. That the Sabbath is of lasting obligation may be reasonably concluded from its institution (see the note on Genesis 2:3;) and from its typical reference. Whatsoever you do, do it in such a manner, spirit, and time, as to make it productive of the greatest possible good. Godâs *blessings for the *Jews 9:1-5. v1 I speak the truth in *Christ. ( Genesis 4:9 ). 14 Paul is dealing with essentially the same problem. 3. 2. one believeth that he may eat all things--See Acts 10:16 . The law of love will now go into action. All things indeed are pure - This is a repetition of the sentiment delivered, Romans 14:14, in different words. (Compare Proverbs 3:4 , Luke 2:52 , Acts 2:47 , 19:20 ). 75-86. ... (SDA Bible Commentary, p.640). On this ground our Church says, Art. 9. But this injunction to abstain from flesh, from wine, and from whatsoever may hurt the conscience of a brother, must be properly understood. For whether we live, we live unto the Lord--the Lord CHRIST; see Romans 14:9 . Destroy not him with--"by" thy meat for whom Christ died--"The worth of even the poorest and weakest brother cannot be more emphatically expressed than by the words, 'for whom Christ died'" [OLSHAUSEN]. 10. It neither particularly enjoins nor particularly forbids such. He that regardeth the day, regardeth it to the Lord--the Lord CHRIST, as before. of Therefore, if he makes a distinction in his own conscience between different kinds of meats, and yet eats of all indifferently, he is a sinner before God; because he eats either through false shame, base compliance, or an unbridled appetite; and any of these is in itself a sin against the sincerity, ingenuousness, and self-denying principles of the Gospel of Christ. and whether we die, we die unto the Lord; whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's--Nothing but the most vivid explanation of these remarkable words could make them endurable to any Christian ear, if Christ were a mere creature. And since the apostle, when he wrote these words, had never been at Rome, he could only know that the Roman Christians would assent to this view of Christ, because it was the common teaching of all the accredited preachers of Christianity, and the common faith of all Christians. See on Romans 14:21; (note). Romans chapter 14 is a complex segment of scripture that frequently is both misunderstood and abused. And let not him, the Jew, that eateth not indiscriminately, judge - condemn him, the Gentile, that eateth indiscriminately flesh or vegetables. And he that doubteth - This verse is a necessary part of the preceding, and should be read thus: But he that doubteth is condemned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith. Him that is weak in the faith--rather, "in faith"; that is, not "him that is weak in the truth believed" [CALVIN, BEZA, ALFORD, &c.], but (as most interpreters agree), "him whose faith wants that firmness and breadth which would raise him above small scruples."
