    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:7

    de tal manera que habis sido ejemplo a todos los que han creído en Macedonia y en Acaya.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Thessalonians 1:7

    Verse 7. Ye were ensamples] topouv? Types, models, or patterns; according to which all the
    Churches in Macedonia and Achaia formed both their creed and their conduct.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 7. So that ye were ensamples to all that believe , etc.] They were not only followers of
    Christ and his apostles, whom they took for examples of faith, holiness, courage, meekness, and patience; but they were patterns of good works; and of suffering afflictions to other believers, even to all that knew them, or heard of them, particularly in Macedonia ; as at Philippi and other places: though the Gospel was first preached there, and they had received it, and a Gospel church state was formed there; yet these were more forward in the exercise of grace and discharge of duty, and were even ensamples to them to copy after; so the first are sometimes last, and the last first: and Achaia ; another part of Greece, the metropolis of which was Corinth, where there also was a very considerable church; but these saints at Thessalonica set them an example in many things, and particularly in acts of beneficence and liberality, being one of the churches of Macedonia spoken of in ( 2 Corinthians 8:1).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 6-10 - When careless, ignorant, and immoral persons are turned from their
    carnal pursuits and connexions, to believe in and obey the Lord Jesus to live soberly, righteously, and godly, the matter speaks for itself The believers under the Old Testament waited for the coming of the Messiah, and believers now wait for his second coming. He is yet to come. And God had raised him from the dead, which is a full assuranc unto all men that he will come to judgment. He came to purchase salvation, and will, when he comes again, bring salvation with him full and final deliverance from that wrath which is yet to come. Le all, without delay, flee from the wrath to come, and seek refuge in Christ and his salvation __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    7. An ensample (tupon). See on
    1 Pet. v. 3.

    Macedonia and Achaia. Shortly after 146 B.C., all Greece south of Macedonia and Epirus was formed into a Roman province under the name of Achaia, and Macedonia with Epirus into another province called Macedonia.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    1:7 {So that ye became} (hwste genesqai humas). Definite result expressed by hwste and the infinitive genesqai (second aorist middle of ginomai) as is common in the _Koin_. {An ensample} (tupon). So B D, but Aleph A C have tupous (plural). The singular looks at the church as a whole, the plural as individuals like humas. tupos is an old word from tuptw, to strike, and so the mark of a blow, print as in John #20:25. qen the figure formed by the blow, image as in #Ac 7:43. qen the mould or form (#Ro 6:17; Ac 23:25). qen an example or pattern as in #Ac 7:44, to be imitated as here, #Php 3:17, etc. It was a great compliment for the church in Thessalonica to be already a model for believers in Macedonia and Achaia. Our word _type_ for printers is this same word with one of its meanings. Note separate article with both Macedonia (tei makedoniai) and Achaia (tei acaiai) treated as separate provinces as they were.
