    SEV Biblia, Chapter 15:23

    Mas ahora teniendo ms lugar en estas regiones, y deseando ir a vosotros hace muchos aos,

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Romans 15:23

    Verse 23. But-having no more
    place in these parts] Having nothing farther at present that I can do-for topon ecein signifies not merely to have a place of residence, or the like, but convenience, opportunity; which is a frequent meaning of the phrase among the best Greek writers-having no large place or city, where Christianity has not yet been planted, in which I can introduce the Gospel. The apostle was then at Corinth; and having evangelized all those parts, he had no opportunity of breaking up any new ground.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 23. But now having no more
    place in these parts , etc..] Not because persecution was too hot for him, and therefore could not stay any longer, for this was what he expected everywhere; nor did it discourage him in his work, for he took pleasure in enduring it for the sake of Christ and his Gospel; but because he had fully preached the Gospel from Jerusalem, in his circuit to Illyricum, had filled every town and city with it, had planted churches in every place, and ordained elders over them, to whom the care and charge of them were committed; that there were no more places for him to preach in, but either where he himself had been already, or some other of the apostles; not but that he could have stayed with usefulness to these new formed churches, for the edifying and confirming of them, for the furtherance of the joy of faith in them, and for the defence of the Gospel and its ordinances among them; but his proper work as an apostle being to preach the Gospel to all nations, and where Christ was not named, and to plant churches; and there being no more room in these climates, or regions, for such service, he begins to think of some other places, particularly Spain, where as yet very probably the Gospel was not preached: however, he found himself at leisure to visit other places, and hereby gives the church at Rome some hopes of seeing him from this consideration, as well as from what follows: and having a great desire these many years to come unto you ; he had not only a desire, but a very vehement desire to come to them; he longed to see them, as he elsewhere says; so that since now he had leisure, they might hope it would not be long ere they did see him; especially as the thing had been upon his mind and thoughts for many years past; which shows that the Gospel had been preached very early at Rome, that many had been converted by it, and a church had been formed there some years ago, and was known to the apostle; on which account, having heard much of their faith and obedience, he had a longing desire of a great while to see them.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 22-29 - The
    apostle sought the things of Christ more than his own will, an would not leave his work of planting churches to go to Rome. I concerns all to do that first which is most needful. We must not tak it ill if our friends prefer work which is pleasing to God, befor visits and compliments, which may please us. It is justly expected from all Christians, that they should promote every good work, especiall that blessed work, the conversion of souls. Christian society is heaven upon earth, an earnest of our gathering together unto Christ a the great day. Yet it is but partial, compared with our communion with Christ; for that only will satisfy the soul. The apostle was going to Jerusalem, as the messenger of charity. God loves a cheerful giver Every thing that passes between Christians should be a proof an instance of the union they have in Jesus Christ. The Gentiles receive the gospel of salvation from the Jews; therefore were bound to ministe to them in what was needed for the body. Concerning what he expecte from them he speaks doubtfully; but concerning what he expected from God he speaks confidently. We cannot expect too little from man, no too much from God. And how delightful and advantageous it is to have the gospel with the fulness of its blessings! What wonderful and happ effects does it produce, when attended with the power of the Spirit!

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    23.
    Place (topon). Scope, opportunity. So of Esau, Heb. xii. 17. Compare Rom. xii. 19; Eph. iv. 27.

    Many (ikanwn). See on worthy, Luke vii. 6. The primary meaning is sufficient, and hence comes to be applied to number and quantity; many, enough, as Mark x. 46; Luke viii. 32; Acts ix. 23, etc. So, long, of time (Acts viii. 11; xxvii. 9). Worthy, i.e., sufficient for an honor or a place (Mark i. 7; Luke vii. 6; 1 Cor. xv. 9). Adequate (2 Cor. ii. 16; iii. 5). Qualified (2 Timothy ii. 2). Here the sense might be expressed by for years enough.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    15:23 {Having no more any place in these regions} (meketi topon ecwn en tois klimasin). Surprising frankness that the average preacher would hardly use on such a matter. Paul is now free to come to Rome because there is no demand for him where he is. For klima (from klinw, to incline), slope, qen tract of land, region, see already #2Co 11:10; Ga 1:21 (the only N.T. examples). {A longing} (epipotheian). A _hapax legomenon_, elsewhere epipothsis (#2Co 7:7,11), from epipoqew as in #Ro 1:11. {These many years} (apo hikan"n etwn). "From considerable years." So B C, but Aleph A D have pollwn, "from many years."
