Romans 5:8 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Commendeth

See on Romans 3:5. Note the present tense. God continuously establishes His love in that the death of Christ remains as its most striking manifestation.

His love (ἑαυτοῦ)

Rev., more literally, His own. Not in contrast with human love, but as demonstrated by Christ's act of love.
