(7) Received us.--There is again a division of the best authorities, the Vatican and Claromontane MSS. reading "us," while the Sinaitic, Alexandrine, Paris rescript, and others, read "you." The latter is, perhaps, to be preferred, but with no real difference to the sense. The word "received" is the same as that at the beginning of Romans 14, the subject of which chapter is still continued, and is now taken up for the last time. The duty of Christians to show cordiality to each other is now based upon the comprehensiveness of the love of Christ, whose mission was directed with the same impartiality towards Jews and Gentiles. To the Jews He came to confirm and fulfil His promises; to the Gentiles He came to bring joys and hopes from which they had been hitherto excluded.

To the glory of God.--That God might be glorified by the admission into the Church of Gentiles as well as Jews; a parenthetic remark without direct bearing on the argument.
