Bible Commentary for Romans 11:19

Wesley's Notes for Romans 11:19


11:17 Thou - O gentile. Being a wild olive tree - Had the graft been nobler than the stock, yet its dependance on it for life and nourishment would leave it no room to boast against it. How much less, when, contrary to what is practised among men, the wild olive tree is engrafted on the good!

11:18 Boast not against the branches - Do not they do this who despise the Jews? or deny their future conversion?

11:20 They were broken off for unbelief, and thou standest by faith - Both conditionally, not absolutely: if absolutely, there might have been room to boast. By faith - The free gift of God, which therefore ought to humble thee.

11:21 Be not highminded, but fear - We may observe, this fear is not opposed to trust, but to pride and security.
