The apostle makes an apology for his seeming to
commend himself, and is careful not to assume too much to himself,
but to ascribe all praise unto God, ver. 1-5. He then draws a comparison between
the Old Testament and the New, and shows the excellency of the
later above the former (ver.
6-11), whence he infers what is the duty of gospel
ministers, and the advantage of those who live under the gospel
above those who lived under the law, ver. 12, to the end.
