    SEV Biblia, Chapter 15:3

    Porque el Cristo no se agrad a sí mismo; antes bien , como est escrito: Los vituperios de los que te vituperan, cayeron sobre mí.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Romans 15:3

    Verse 3. For even
    Christ pleased not himself] Christ never acted as one who sought his own ease or profit; he not only bore with the weakness, but with the insults, of his creatures; as it is written in Psa. lxix. i10: The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on me-I not only bore their insults, but bore the punishment due to them for their vicious and abominable conduct. That this Psalm refers to the Messiah and his sufferings for mankind is evident, not only from the quotation here, but also from John xix. 28, 29, when our Lord's receiving the vinegar during his expiatory suffering is said to be a fulfilling of the scripture, viz. of verse 21 of this very Psalm; and his cleansing the temple, John ii. 15-17, is said to be a fulfillment of Psa. lxix. i10: For the zeal of thy house hath eaten me up, the former part of which verse the apostle quotes here.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 3. For even
    Christ pleased not himself , etc..] He sought not his own ease, pleasure, profit, honour, and glory, but to do his Father's will and work, ( John 4:34); and he always did the things which pleased him, in his obedience, sufferings, and death; and sought not his own, but his glory: moreover, what he did and suffered were not for himself, but for us; he became incarnate for us; he obeyed, suffered, and died for us; he came not to be ministered to, to be attended upon as an earthly prince, enjoying his own ease and pleasure, things grateful to nature, but to minister to others, ( Matthew 20:28); hence he appeared in the form of a servant, did the work of one in life, and at last became obedient to death, even the death of the cross, ( Philippians 2:7,8): not but that he was well pleased in doing and suffering all this; it was his delight to do the will of God: it was his meat and drink to finish his work; yea, that part of it which was most disagreeable to flesh and blood, was most earnestly desired by him, even the baptism of his sufferings; and in the view of the salvation of his people, and of enjoying their company with him to all eternity, he endured the cross patiently, and despised the shame with pleasure, ( Hebrews 12:2): but then he met with many things which were far from being grateful to human nature; such as the hardness and unbelief of the Jews, with which he was grieved, their scoffs and insults, reproaches and jeers; the ignorance, frowardness, and moroseness of his own disciples, whose infirmities he bore; and at last the sufferings of death, that bitter cup, which he as man desired might pass from him; but, however, he submitted to his Father's will, ( Matthew 26:39); all which prove what the apostle here affirms.

    This instance of Christ, the man of God's right hand, the son of man, whom he has made strong for himself, the head of the church, the leader and commander of the people, bearing the infirmities of the weak, and not pleasing himself, is very pertinently produced, to enforce the above exhortations; who is an example to his people in the exercise of every grace, and the discharge of every duty; as in beneficence, forgiving of injuries, mutual love, meekness and humility, suffering of afflictions, and patience. The proof of it follows, but as it is written , in ( Psalm 69:9); the reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on me ; which are the words of Christ unto his Father, as the whole psalm is to be understood not of David, but of the Messiah, as is clear from the citations out of it, and references to it in the New Testament; (see John 2:17 15:25 19:28), compared with ( Psalm 69:9,4,21), and the meaning of them is, either that the reproaches which were cast on the house, worship, and ordinances of God, affected Christ as much as if they had been cast upon himself; which stirred up his zeal to take the method he did, to show his resentment at such indignities; (see John 2:15-17), or that the same persons by whom the name of God was blasphemed, his sanctuary polluted, and his ordinances reproached, also reproached him; and he bore in his bosom the reproach of all the mighty people, which were in great plenty poured upon him; they reproached him with being a glutton, a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners, ( Matthew 11:19 Luke 7:34); they said he was a Samaritan, and had a devil, ( John 8:48): charged him with blasphemy and sedition, ( Matthew 26:65 Luke 23:2); and when on the cross, mocked, reviled, and wagged their heads at him, ( Matthew 27:39-44); all which he bore patiently, and reviled not again: moreover, by reproaches may be meant the sins of his people, by which the name of God was blasphemed, his law trampled upon with contempt, and the perfections of his nature, as his justice and holiness, dishonoured; and which fell upon Christ, not by chance, but by the appointment of God, and according to his own voluntary agreement; and which he bore in his own body, and made satisfaction for; which though he did willingly, in order to obtain some valuable ends, the salvation of his people, and the glorifying of the divine perfections, the honouring of the law, and satisfying of justice, yet the bearing of them, in itself, could not be grateful to him as such; neither the charge of sin, nor the weight of punishment; and in this respect he pleased not himself, or did that which was grateful to his pure and holy nature.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-7 - Christian liberty was allowed, not for our pleasure, but for the glor of God, and the good of others. We must please our neighbour, for the good of his soul; not by serving his wicked will, and humouring him in a sinful way; if we thus seek to please men, we are not the servants of Christ. Christ's whole life was a self-denying, self-displeasing life And he is the most advanced Christian, who is the most conformed to Christ. Considering his spotless purity and holiness, nothing could be more contrary to him, than to be made sin and a curse for us, and to have the reproaches of God fall upon him; the just for the unjust. He bore the guilt of sin, and the curse for it; we are only called to bea a little of the trouble of it. He bore the presumptuous sins of the wicked; we are called only to bear the failings of the weak. And shoul not we be humble, self-denying, and ready to consider one another, wh are members one of another? The Scriptures are written for our use an benefit, as much as for those to whom they were first given. Those ar most learned who are most mighty in the Scriptures. That comfort whic springs from the word of God, is the surest and sweetest, and the greatest stay to hope. The Spirit as a Comforter, is the earnest of ou inheritance. This like-mindedness must be according to the precept of Christ, according to his pattern and example. It is the gift of God and a precious gift it is, for which we must earnestly seek unto him Our Divine Master invites his disciples, and encourages them by showin himself as meek and lowly in spirit. The same disposition ought to mar the conduct of his servants, especially of the strong towards the weak The great end in all our actions must be, that God may be glorified nothing more forwards this, than the mutual love and kindness of thos who profess religion. Those that agree in Christ may well agree amon themselves.
