Wesley's Notes for Romans 11:33


11:33 O the depth of the riches, and wisdom, and knowledge of God - In the ninth chapter, St. Paul had sailed but in a narrow sea: now he is in the ocean. The depth of the riches is described, #Ro 11:35|; the depth of wisdom, #Ro 11:34|; the depth of knowledge, in the latter part of this verse. Wisdom directs all things to the best end; knowledge sees that end. How unsearchable are his judgments - With regard to unbelievers. His ways - With regard to believers. His ways are more upon a level; His judgments a great deep. But even his ways we cannot trace.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 11:33


Ro 11:33-36 O the depth of the riches. The rest of the chapter is an outburst of wonder and praise. From a mountain height the apostle surveys the sublime plan of God, and his soul breaks out in a transport of delight. In this wonderful plan for the salvation of Jew and Gentile there is an unfathomable depth of riches, and wisdom, and knowledge. The depth of the "knowledge" is shown in the latter part of Ro 11:33; the "wisdom" is described in Ro 11:34; and the "riches" in Ro 11:35.

  • Moses Njenga for verse 33
    That 's why the things that comes from the LORD passes human understanding, can you explain HIS peace? HIS ways are higher than ours.
  • This shows us how we can't even begin to imagine or understand Jehovah's ways or thoughts. His wisdom is way more superior to our thinking. This should give us another reason to respect and stand in awe of Jehovah and his words found in the Bible.
