“Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God.”
King James Version (KJV)
3:2 Chiefly in that they were intrusted with the oracles of God - The scriptures, in which are so great and precious promises. Other prerogatives will follow, #Romans 9:4 |- 5. St. Paul here singles out this by which, after removing the objection, he will convict them so much the more.
Ro 3:2 Much every way. The Jew had great advantages. He had greater light, more knowledge, better privileges, higher honors. The greatest advantage was that unto them were committed the oracles of God, the Holy Scriptures, and hence the promises which revealed a Messiah of mankind. This was not the only advantage, but the first.
