    SEV Biblia, Chapter 15:9

    pero que los gentiles glorifiquen a Dios por la misericordia; como est escrito: Por tanto yo te confesar a ti entre los gentiles, y cantar a tu Nombre.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Romans 15:9

    Verse 9. And that the Gentiles might
    glorify God for his mercy] As the Jews were to glorify God for his truth, so the Gentiles were to glorify God for his mercy. The Jews received the blessings of the Gospel by right of promise, which promise God had most punctually and circumstantially fulfilled. The Gentiles had received the same Gospel as an effect of God's mere mercy, having no right in consequence of any promise or engagement made with any of their ancestors, though they were originally included in the covenant made with Abraham; and the prophets had repeatedly declared that they should be made equal partakers of those blessings with the Jews themselves; as the apostle proceeds to prove.

    I will confess to thee among the Gentiles] This quotation is taken from Psa. xviii. 49, and shows that the Gentiles had a right to glorify God for his mercy to them; and we shall see the strength of this saying farther, when we consider a maxim of the Jews delivered in Megillah, fol. 14: "From the time that the children of Israel entered into the promised land, no Gentile had any right to sing a hymn of praise to God. But after that the Israelites were led into captivity, then the Gentiles began to have a right to glorify God." Thus the Jews themselves confess that the Gentiles have a right to glorify God; and this on account of being made partakers of his grace and mercy. And if, says Schoettgen, we have a right to glorify God, then it follows that our worship must be pleasing to him; and if it be pleasing to him, then it follows that this worship must be good, otherwise God could not be pleased with it.

    Dr. Taylor gives a good paraphrase of this and the three following verses: As you Jews glorify God for his truth, so the Gentiles have a right to join with you in glorifying God for his mercy. And you have Scripture authority for admitting them to such fellowship; for instance, David says, Psa. xviii. 49, Therefore will I give thanks unto thee, O Lord, among the Gentiles, and sing praises unto thy name. And again, Moses himself says, Deuteronomy xxxii. 43, Rejoice, O ye Gentiles, with his people. And again, it is evident, from Psa. cxvii. 1, 2, that praise to God is not to be confined to the Jews only, but that all people, as they all share in his goodness, should also join in thanks to their common benefactor: O praise the Lord, all ye nations, (Gentiles,) praise him all ye people; for his merciful kindness is great towards us; and the truth of the Lord endureth for ever. Again the Prophet Isaiah expressly and clearly declares, Isa. xi. 10, There shall be a root of Jesse, (that is, the Messiah,) and he shall rise to reign over the Gentiles, and in him shall the Gentiles hope: elpiousin? And thus the apostle proves, both to the Jews and to the Gentiles, who were probably unwilling to join with each other in religious fellowship, that they had both an equal right to glorify God, being equally interested in his mercy, goodness, and truth; and that, from the evidence of the above scriptures, the Gentiles had as much right to hope in Christ, for the full enjoyment of his kingdom, as the Jews had: and, taking occasion from the last word hope, elpiousin, which we improperly translate trust, he pours out his heart in the following affectionate prayer.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 9. And that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy , etc..] In choosing them in Christ as vessels of mercy, and in redeeming them by Christ as well as the Jews, and in regenerating and calling them by his abundant grace; and which as they clearly show that Christ has received them, and therefore are not to be censured and judged as irreligious persons, because of the use of their Christian liberty; so these things lay them under obligations to glorify God, to show forth his praise both by lip and life, since what they enjoy is not by promise, as the Jews, but of mere mercy; not but that promises arise from grace and mercy, though the accomplishment of them is owing to truth and faithfulness; but the Gentiles had no promises made to them, and yet obtained mercy, though there were many promises made concerning them, and many oracles and predictions in favour of them stood on divine record; some of which the apostle here produces to prove what he had asserted, that Christ had received them, and they were bound to glorify God on that account: as it is written , in ( Psalm 18:49); for this cause I will confess to thee among the Gentiles, and sing unto thy name ; which words are not spoken unto God by David, literally, considered, but as representing the Messiah; for David when he penned this Psalm, was in the decline of life; the next account after this is of his last dying words, ( 2 Samuel 23:1); nor could he hope to praise God among the Gentiles, nor did he in person, but in his Son the Messiah. These words are the words of Christ unto his Father, who in the title of the psalm is called the servant of God, he being the Mediator eminently; he is represented as encompassed with the sorrows and snares of death and the grave, which agree with Jesus when in the garden, and on the cross. God is all along in it spoken as his helper and deliverer, as he was to Christ in his human nature, having promised to be so, and on which he depended; and the person, the subject of the psalm, is a victorious person, one that has got the conquest over all enemies, which is in the fullest sense true of the Messiah, who has overcome the world, made an end of sin, destroyed Satan, spoiled principalities and powers, and abolished death; and particularly is said to be the head of the Heathen, and they to be voluntary subjects to him, ( Psalm 18:43,44), which is expressed in much the same language as the like things are in ( Isaiah 55:4,5); which is so manifest a prophecy of the Messiah; add to all which, that the Lord's anointed, the King Messiah, and who is called David, is expressly mentioned in the words following these that are cited, and which are applied by the Jews f262 themselves to the Messiah; as is ( Psalm 18:32) paraphrased of him, by the Targumist upon it: what is here said by the Messiah to God, is that he would confess to him among the Gentiles; which is to be understood not of confession of sin, or of a confession of faith in him; but of praise and thanksgiving, a celebration of his perfections, particularly his, race, mercy, and goodness; ascribing honour and glory to him, either for the conversion of the Gentiles, as he did in the believing Jews, ( Acts 11:18), or by the mouth of the Gentiles, for what God had done in bringing the Gospel to them, ( Acts 13:48), or among them, by his apostles and ministers of the Gospel being made very successful among them, and made to triumph in Christ, whilst they diffused the savour of his knowledge in every place. The word Lord is omitted in this citation, though it appears in the Vulgate Latin and Arabic versions, and in the Complutensian edition, and two of Stephens's copies: and sing unto thy name; psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to the glory of his grace, as in all the churches of the Gentiles, to which they are directed by the Spirit of Christ, ( Ephesians 5:19 Colossians 3:16).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 8-13 -
    Christ fulfilled the prophecies and promises relating to the Jews, an the Gentile converts could have no excuse for despising them. The Gentiles, being brought into the church, are companions in patience an tribulation. They should praise God. Calling upon all the nations to praise the Lord, shows that they shall have knowledge of him. We shal never seek to Christ till we trust in him. And the whole plan of redemption is suited to reconcile us to one another, as well as to ou gracious God, so that an abiding hope of eternal life, through the sanctifying and comforting power of the Holy Spirit, may be attained Our own power will never reach this; therefore where this hope is, an is abounding, the blessed Spirit must have all the glory. "All joy an peace;" all sorts of true joy and peace, so as to suppress doubts an fears, through the powerful working of the Holy Spirit.

    9. It is written. The citations are from Psalm xviii. 50, compare 2 Samuel xxii. 50;
    Deut. xxxii. 43; Psalm cxvii. 1; Isa. xi. 10.

    Confess. Rev., give praise. See on ch. xiv. 11.

    Sing (yalw). See on Jas. v. 13.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    15:9 {And that the Gentiles might praise} (ta de eqne doxasai). Coordinate with bebai"sai and eis to, to be repeated with ta eqne, the accusative of general reference and ton qeon the object of doxasai. Thus the Gentiles were called through the promise to the Jews in the covenant with Abraham (#4:11f.,16f.). Salvation is of the Jews. Paul proves his position by a chain of quotations from the O.T., the one in verse #9 from #Ps 18:50. For exomologew, see #14:10. {I will sing} (psal"). Future active of yallw, for which verb see on #1Co 14:15.
