    Clarke's Commentary on Romans 15:23

    But - having no more place in these parts - Having nothing farther at present that I can do - for τοπον εχειν signifies not merely to have a place of residence, or the like, but convenience, opportunity; which is a frequent meaning of the phrase among the best Greek writers - having no large place or city, where Christianity has not yet been planted, in which I can introduce the Gospel. The apostle was then at Corinth; and having evangelized all those parts, he had no opportunity of breaking up any new ground.

    Barnes' Notes on Romans 15:23

    But now ... - Having no further opportunity in these regions to preach to those who have never heard the gospel.

    In these parts - In the regions before specified. He had gone over them, had established churches, had left them in the care of elders Acts 20:17, and was now prepared to penetrate into some new region, and lay the foundation of other churches.

    And having a great desire ... - See Romans 1:9-13.

    Wesley's Notes on Romans 15:23

    15:23 Having no longer place in these parts - Where Christ has now been preached in every city.
