Bible Commentary for Romans 8:19

Wesley's Notes for Romans 8:19

8:19 For the earnest expectation - The word denotes a lively hope of something drawing near, and a vehement longing after it. Of the creation - Of all visible creatures, believers excepted, who are spoken of apart; each kind, according as it is capable. All these have been sufferers through sin; and to all these (the finally impenitent excepted) shall refreshment redound from the glory of the children of God. Upright heathens are by no means to be excluded from this earnest expectation: nay, perhaps something of it may at some times be found even in the vainest of men; who (although in the hurry of life they mistake vanity for liberty, and partly stifle. partly dissemble, their groans, yet) in their sober, quiet, sleepless, afflicted hours, pour forth many sighs in the ear of God.

People's Bible Notes for Romans 8:19

Ro 8:19 The earnest expectation of the creature. "Creature" is rendered "creation" in the Revised Version, and this rendering is approved by all the best critics. Chrysostom says, ``Paul personifies the world, just as the prophets do when they make the floods to clap their hands.'' The whole world is represented earnestly looking forward to the manifestation of the sons of God, to that day of future glory when the sons of God will have reached their high estate and be revealed as his children. It is a fine, poetic figure, a grand conception.
