    SEV Biblia, Chapter 15:17

    ¶ Así que tengo de qu gloriarme en el Ungido, Jess, para con Dios.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Romans 15:17

    Verse 17. I here therefore whereof I may
    glory] Being sent of God on this most honourable and important errand, I have matter of great exultation, not only in the honour which he has conferred upon me, but in the great success with which he has crowned my ministry.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 17. I have therefore whereof I may
    glory , etc..] Not in himself, for he that taught others not to glory in men, would not glory in himself; not in his carnal descent and fleshly privileges; nor in his knowledge of, and compliance with, the ceremonies of the law; nor in his legal, moral, and civil righteousness before God; nor in his gifts and attainments, as merited and procured by himself; nor in his labours in the ministry, and the success of it, as of himself: but through Jesus Christ ; or in Jesus Christ, as read the Vulgate Latin, Syriac, and Arabic versions; in what Christ was unto him, wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption: he could boast of what he had from him, and through him, even of all spiritual blessings in him; and of a large measure of grace he had received from him; and of great and eminent gifts Christ had bestowed on him; he gloried in his cross, and boasted of a crucified Jesus, whom others despised; and whom he made the subject of his ministry, and took delight in preaching: and freely owned that all he did was through Christ strengthening him; and that all his success in his work was owing to him, and of this he had to glory: and which was in those things which pertain to God ; not with God, as the Syriac reads it; for though in some cases it may be lawful to glory before men, yet not before God, or in his presence: nor is it anything a man may glory in, not in his own things, but in the things of God; in things relating to the Gospel of God, to the pure preaching of it, to the furtherance and spread of it, and the recommending of it to others; to the worship and ordinances of God, and a spiritual attendance on them; to the grace of God, and the magnifying of that in the business of salvation; and to the glory of God, which ought to be the chief end of all actions, natural, moral, and religious, and whether private or public. The apostle has chiefly reference to his ministerial function, and the things of God relating to that, in which he was employed; (see Hebrews 5:1).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 14-21 - The
    apostle was persuaded that the Roman Christians were filled with kind and affectionate spirit, as well as with knowledge. He had writte to remind them of their duties and their dangers, because God ha appointed him the minister of Christ to the Gentiles. Paul preached to them; but what made them sacrifices to God, was, their sanctification not his work, but the work of the Holy Ghost: unholy things can neve be pleasing to the holy God. The conversion of souls pertains unto God therefore it is the matter of Paul's glorying, not the things of the flesh. But though a great preacher, he could not make one sou obedient, further than the Spirit of God accompanied his labours. He principally sought the good of those that sat in darkness. Whateve good we do, it is Christ who does it by us.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    17. Whereof I may
    glory (thn kauchsin). Rather, as Rev., my glorying, denoting the act. The ground of glorying would be kauchma as in ch. iv. 2; Gal. vi. 4, etc.

    Those things which pertain to God (ta prov ton Qeon). A technical phrase in Jewish liturgical language to denote the functions of worship (Heb. ii. 17; v. 1). According with the sacerdotal ideas of the previous verse.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    15:17 {In things pertaining to God} (ta pros ton qeon). Accusative of general reference of the article used with the prepositional phrase, "as to the things relating to (pros, facing) God."
