    Definitions for Romans 15:2

    Let - To hinder or obstruct.

    Clarke's Commentary on Romans 15:2

    Let every one of us please his neighbor - For it should be a maxim with each of us to do all in our power to please our brethren; and especially in those things in which their spiritual edification is concerned. Though we should not indulge men in mere whims and caprices, yet we should bear with their ignorance and their weakness, knowing that others had much to bear with from us before we came to our present advanced state of religious knowledge.

    Barnes' Notes on Romans 15:2

    Please his neighbour - That is, all other persons, but especially the friends of the Redeemer. The word "neighbor" here has special reference to the members of the church. It is often used, however, in a much larger sense; see Luke 10:36.

    For his good - Not seek to secure for him indulgence in those things which Would be injurious to him, but in all those things whereby his welfare would be promoted.

    To edification - See the note at Romans 14:19.

    Wesley's Notes on Romans 15:2

    15:2 For his good - This is a general word: edification is one species of good.
