Robertson's Word Pictures of the New Testament

Romans 14:2

One man (ov men).
"This one," demonstrative pronoun ov with men.

Hath faith (pisteuei).
Like exei pistin (Acts 14:9).

But he that is weak (o de astenwn).
One would expect ov de (but that one) in contrast with ov men. Ho is demonstrative with de sometimes, but here is probably just the article with astenwn.

Herbs (laxana).
From laxanw, to dig. Hence garden herbs or vegetables. Denney feels certain that Paul has in mind a party of vegetarians in Rome.
