What shall we say?
). Rhetorical question, common with Paul as he surveys the argument. Commendeth
). This common verb sunisthmi
, to send together, occurs in the N.T. in two senses, either to introduce, to commend ( 2 Corinthians 3:1
; 2 Corinthians 4:2
) or to prove, to establish ( 2 Corinthians 7:11
; Galatians 2:18
; Romans 5:8
). Either makes good sense here. Who visiteth the wrath
(o epiperwn thn orghn
). "Who brings on the wrath," "the inflicter of the anger" (Vaughan). I speak as a man
). See Galatians 3:15
for same phrase. As if to say, "pardon me for this line of argument." Tholuck says that the rabbis often used kata anqrwpon
and ti eroumen
. Paul had not forgotten his rabbinical training.
