2 Thessalonians 1

Introduction

Overview

2 Thessalonians 1:1, Paul certifies them of the good opinion which he had of their faith, love, and patience; 2 Thessalonians 1:11, and therewithal uses divers reasons for the comforting of them in persecution, whereof the chief is taken from the righteous judgment of God.

groweth: The word, ץנוסבץמבםש [Strong's G5232], from ץנוס [Strong's G5228], intensive, and בץמבםש [Strong's G837], to grow, increase, signifies, as Dr. Clarke remarks, to grow luxuriantly, as a good and healthy tree in a good soil; and, if a fruit tree, bearing an abundance of fruit to compensate the labour of the husbandman. Faith is one of the seeds of the kingdom. This the Apostle had sowed and watered, and God gave an abundant increase. Their faith was multiplied, and their love abounded, and this was not the case with some distinguished characters only; it was the case with every one of them. For this the apostle felt himself bound to give continual thanks to God on their behalf, as it was "meet" and right.
