(23) But now having no more place.--The work had been finished, so far as the Apostle was concerned, in Asia Minor, Macedonia, and Greece. The churches had been founded, and fairly set going; and now he felt it his duty to go on to new fields, his duty in this respect also falling in with his wishes, as it would bring him to Rome.

Place.--Room for (new) working. The whole. ground had been already occupied.

Parts.--A peculiar word from which our word "climate" is derived. The original idea appears to be the slope or inclination of the earth from the equator towards the pole. Hence a "zone" or "region." The same word occurs in 2Corinthians 11:10; Galatians 1:21.
