    Clarke's Commentary on Romans 15:28

    When, therefore, I have performed this - Service, and have sealed - faithfully delivered up, to them this fruit, of the success of my ministry and of your conversion to God, I will come by you into Spain: this was in his desire; he had fully purposed it, if God should see meet to permit him; but it does not appear that he ever went. See Romans 15:24.

    Barnes' Notes on Romans 15:28

    Have sealed to them - That is, have "secured it" to them. To seal an instrument of writing, a contract, deed, etc. is to "authenticate it," to make it "sure." In this sense it is used here. Paul was going himself to see that it was placed "securely" in their hands.

    This fruit - This result of the liberality of the Gentile churches - the fruit which their benevolence had produced.

    I will come ... - This was Paul's full purpose; but it is not clear that he ever accomplished it; Note, Romans 15:24.

    By you - Taking Rome in my way.
