    Clarke's Commentary on Romans 15:32

    That I may come unto you with joy - That his apprehensions of ill usage were not groundless, and the danger to which his life was exposed, real, we have already seen in the account given of this visit, Acts 21, 22, 23, and 24; and that he had such intimations from the Holy Spirit himself appears from Acts 20:23; Acts 21:11; Acts 20:38. Should his journey to Jerusalem be prosperous, and his service accepted, so that the converted Jews and Gentiles should come to a better understanding, he hoped to see them at Rome with great joy: and if he got his wishes gratified through their prayers, it would be the full proof that this whole business had been conducted according to the will of God.

    Barnes' Notes on Romans 15:32

    That I may come to you - That I I may not be impeded in my intended journey by opposition in Judea.

    With joy - Joy to myself in being permitted to come; and producing joy to you by my presence.

    By the will of God - If God will; if God permit. After all his desires, and all their prayers, it still depended on the will of God; and to that the apostle was desirous to submit. This should be the end of our most ardent desires, and this the object of all our prayers, that the will of God should be done; compare James 4:14-15. Paul "did" go by the will of God; but he went in bonds.

    And be refreshed - Greek, May find "rest" or "solace" with you.
