Geneva Bible Notes (1560): Romans 14

1 a That is, the doctrine of the Gospel.

1 b Lest he shulde departe ether more ignorant then he came, or els that a greater scrupule of conscience.

5 d We must be assured in our conscience by Gods worde in all things that we do: that if we be stong, we may know what is our libertie: and if we be weake, we may learne to profit daily.

6 e That counteth one day more holie then another.

6 f Who judge whether he doeth wel or no.

6 g Because he thinketh the meates vncleane by the Law.

6 h Here we must note thre things: first, that he speaketh of things which of them selues are indifferent, albeit in the Law thei were not: next, that he reproueth not the condemning of the act but of the persones: thirdly that he meaneth not the stubburne and malicious, whome he calleth dogges & concision, but the weake and infirme to whome as yet God had not reueiled the perfite libertie.

11 k This othe particularly apperteineth to God who is the true life of him self, & giueth it to all others.

11 l An acknowledge me for their God.

14 m He preuenteth the objection which the Christians might vse.

16 n Which is the benefite of Christian libertie by abusing whereof ye cause the weakelings to blaspheme the Gospel which might seme to them contrarie to Gods wil, and the doctrine of the Lawe.

17 o God wil not reigne ouer his by suche obseruations.

22 q Faith here is taken for a ful persuasion of the Christian libertie in things indifferent as the Apostle interpreteth it in the {14} verse.

22 r Which hathe none euil remorse of conscience in his doing.
