    SEV Biblia, Chapter 11:13

    Porque (a vosotros digo, gentiles). En cuanto a la verdad, yo soy apstol de los gentiles, mi ministerio honro,

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Romans 11:13

    Verse 13. This and the following verse should be read in a parenthesis. St.
    Paul, as the apostle of the Gentiles, wished to show them the high pitch of glory and blessedness to which they had been called, that they might have a due sense of God's mercy in calling them to such a state of salvation; and that they might be jealous over themselves, lest they should fall as the Jews had done before them: and he dwells particularly on the greatness of those privileges which the Gentiles had now received, that he might stir up the minds of his countrymen to emulation, and might be the means of saving some of them, as he states in the following verse.

    I magnify mine office] This is a very improper translation of thn diakonian mou doxazw, which is, literally, I honour this my ministry. Dr. Taylor has justly observed that magnify, except when applied to the most High, carries with it, in our language, the idea of stretching beyond the bounds of truth; whereas the apostle simply means that he does justice to his ministry, by stating the glorious things which he was commissioned to preach among the Gentiles: blessings which the Jews by their obstinacy had forfeited.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 13. For I speak to you Gentiles , etc..] The church at Rome, as the primitive churches for the most part did, consisted of Jews and Gentiles; hence the apostle sometimes addresses the one, as in ( Romans 2:17,25 7:1), and sometimes the other, as here; and this he does to observe unto them the grace and goodness of God, in enriching them with the Gospel of salvation; and that they might not despise the Jews, from whom it first came out, and through whose fall it came to them, and was preached among them by some of that nation: in as much as I am the apostle of the Gentiles . He was ordained and set apart by God, in his eternal purposes, to be a teacher of the Gentiles; he was sent immediately by Christ to bear his name among them, though not among them only, to the exclusion of the people of Israel; he chiefly preached the Gospel to them, though sometimes to the Jews also; and the success of his ministry was mostly among the uncircumcision, though he sought by all ways and means to gain both Jews and Gentiles: hence he addresses the Gentiles with greater freedom and boldness, because he was their apostle, and had been so useful among them; and is a reason why we Gentiles should have a special regard to his writings; for though every word of God is pure, and all Scripture is divinely inspired, and is profitable on one account or other; nor is any part of it to be slighted and neglected; yet as Paul's epistles are written chiefly to the Gentile churches, excepting that to the Hebrews, and which some question whether it is his, they ought especially to be attended to by us; though, alas, of all the inspired writings they are had in the least esteem: I magnify mine office : not himself, for he was not of a self-exalting spirit, but humble and lowly minded, ready at all times to own himself to be less than the least of saints and the chief of sinners; but his office, which he had received from Christ, as an instance of his grace and favour. This was magnified partly by the miracles, signs, and wonders done by him, in proof, and for the confirmation of his apostleship; and partly by his constant, diligent, and faithful preaching of the Gospel: as also by the unwearied pains he took to spread it far and near; and likewise by the numbers of souls he was the means of bringing to the knowledge of Christ; and it was no small accession of glory to his office, as an apostle of the Gentiles, that he was an instrument of the conversion of many among the Jews.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 11-21 - The
    gospel is the greatest riches of every place where it is. A therefore the righteous rejection of the unbelieving Jews, was the occasion of so large a multitude of the Gentiles being reconciled to God, and at peace with him; the future receiving of the Jews into the church would be such a change, as would resemble a general resurrectio of the dead in sin to a life of righteousness. Abraham was as the roo of the church. The Jews continued branches of this tree till, as nation, they rejected the Messiah; after that, their relation to Abraham and to God was, as it were, cut off. The Gentiles were grafte into this tree in their room; being admitted into the church of God Multitudes were made heirs of Abraham's faith, holiness an blessedness. It is the natural state of every one of us, to be wild by nature. Conversion is as the grafting in of wild branches into the goo olive. The wild olive was often ingrafted into the fruitful one when it began to decay, and this not only brought forth fruit, but caused the decaying olive to revive and flourish. The Gentiles, of free grace, ha been grafted in to share advantages. They ought therefore to beware of self-confidence, and every kind of pride or ambition; lest, having onl a dead faith, and an empty profession, they should turn from God, an forfeit their privileges. If we stand at all, it is by faith; we ar guilty and helpless in ourselves, and are to be humble, watchful afraid of self-deception, or of being overcome by temptation. Not onl are we at first justified by faith, but kept to the end in tha justified state by faith only; yet, by a faith which is not alone, but which worketh by love to God and man.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    13. For I speak. The
    best texts read de but instead of gar for. The sentence does not state the reason for the prominence of the Gentiles asserted in ver. 12, but makes a transition from the statement of the divine plan to the statement of Paul's own course of working on the line of that plan. He labors the more earnestly for the Gentiles with a view to the salvation of his own race.

    Inasmuch as I am. The best texts insert oun then. So Rev.; thus disconnecting the clause from the preceding, and connecting it with what follows.

    I magnify mine office (thn diakonian mou doxazw). Lit., I glorify my ministry, as Rev. Not I praise, but I honor by the faithful discharge of its duties. He implies, however, that the office is a glorious one. The verb, which occurs about sixty times in the New Testament, most frequently in John, is used, with very few exceptions, of glorifying God or Christ. In ch. viii. 30, of God's elect. In 1 Cor. xii. 26, of the members of the body. In Apoc. xviii. 7, of Babylon. For ministry, see on minister, Matthew xx. 26.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    11:13 {To you that are Gentiles} (humin tois eqnesin). "To you the Gentiles." He has a serious word to say to them. {Inasmuch qen} (eph' hoson men oun). Not temporal, _quamdiu_, "so long as" (#Mt 9:15), but qualitative _quatenus_ "in so far qen as" (#Mt 25:40). {I glorify my ministry} (tn diakonian mou doxazw). As apostle to the Gentiles (eqnwn apostolos, objective genitive). Would that every minister of Christ glorified his ministry. {If by any means} (ei pws). this use of ei with purpose or aim is a kind of indirect discourse. {I may provoke} (parazl"s"). Either future active indicative or first aorist active subjunctive, see same uncertainty in #Php 3:10 katants", but in #3:11 katalab" after ei is subjunctive. The future indicative is clear in #Ro 1:10 and the optative in #Ac 27:12. Doubtful whether future indicative or aorist subjunctive also in s"s" (save).
