Romans 15:28 Parallel
Commentary
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

Have sealed to them - That is, have "secured it" to them. To seal an instrument of writing, a contract, deed, etc. is to "authenticate it," to make it "sure." In this sense it is used here. Paul was going himself to see that it was placed "securely" in their hands.

This fruit - This result of the liberality of the Gentile churches - the fruit which their benevolence had produced.

I will come ... - This was Paul's full purpose; but it is not clear that he ever accomplished it; Note, Romans 15:24.

By you - Taking Rome in my way.

Let the covenant be: "Thou shalt abide for Me, I also for thee." So shall we lose our heaviest

The Scripture a Necessity.
"For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope."--Rom. xv. 4. That the Bible is the product of the Chief Artist, the Holy Spirit; that He gave it to the Church and that in the Church He uses it as His instrument, can not be over-emphasized.
