    Definitions for Romans 9:24

    Gentiles - A people; nations other than Israel.

    Clarke's Commentary on Romans 9:24

    Even us, whom he hath called - All the Jews and Gentiles who have been invited by the preaching of the Gospel to receive justification by faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, and have come to the Gospel feast on this invitation.

    Barnes' Notes on Romans 9:24

    Even us ... - See Romans 1:16; Romans 2:10; Romans 3:29-30. To prove that the Gentiles might be called as well as the Jews, was a leading design of the Epistle.

    Us - Christians, selected from both Jews and Gentiles. This proves that he did not refer to nations primarily, but to individuals chosen out of nations. Two things are established here.

    (1) that the grace of God was not confined to the Jewish people, as they supposed, so that it could be conferred on no others.

    (2) that God was not bound to confer grace on all the descendants of Abraham, as he bestowed it on those selected from the mass, according to his own will, and not of necessity "on the mass" itself.

    9:24 Even us - Here the apostle comes to the other proposition, of grace free for all, whether Jew or gentile. Of the Jews - This he treats of, Ro 9:25. Of the gentiles - Treated of in the same verse .
