Romans 3:5

What shall we say? (ti eroumen?).
Rhetorical question, common with Paul as he surveys the argument.

Commendeth (sunisthsin).
This common verb sunisthmi, to send together, occurs in the N.T. in two senses, either to introduce, to commend (2 Corinthians 3:1; 4:2) or to prove, to establish ( 2 Corinthians 7:11; Galatians 2:18; Romans 5:8). Either makes good sense here.

Who visiteth the wrath (o epiperwn thn orghn).
"Who brings on the wrath," "the inflicter of the anger" (Vaughan).

I speak as a man (kata antrwpon).
See Galatians 3:15 for same phrase. As if to say, "pardon me for this line of argument." Tholuck says that the rabbis often used kata antrwpon and ti eroumen. Paul had not forgotten his rabbinical training.
