14 I am debtor both to the Greeks, and to the Barbarians; both to the wise, and to the unwise.
15 So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also.
Debtor — Paul was obligated because (1) He had to “pay back” in service what Christ’s love had done for him; (2) It was his assignment.
Greeks (civilized nations, including Rome) and barbarians (all uncivilized nations) — those Paul had to pay his debt to
Wise and unwise — cultured and uncultured, people of all degrees
Ready to preach — Paul’s preparation was complete. The word translated “ready” indicates readiness and inclination.
Preach the gospel — Paul was a herald giving a proclamation.
