Romans 2:23

Read Chapter 2


AD 400

Basil the Great

AD 379

John Chrysostom

AD 407
Here Paul makes two, or rather three, accusations. First, that they dishonor. Second, that they dishonor that by which they were honored. Third, that they dishonor the One who honored them, which was the depth of ingratitude. And then, so as not to appear to be accusing them off his own bat, he brings in the prophet Isaiah as their accuser.

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
