    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:8

    Porque por vosotros ha sido divulgada la Palabra del Seor no slo en Macedonia y en Acaya, mas aun en todo lugar vuestra fe, que es en Dios, se ha extendido; de tal manera que no tenemos necesidad de hablar nada.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Thessalonians 1:8

    Verse 8. From you sounded out] As
    Thessalonica vas very conveniently situated for traffic, many merchants from thence traded through Macedonia, Achaia, and different parts of Greece. By these, the fame of the Thessalonians having received the doctrine of the Gospel was doubtless carried far and wide. And it appears that they had walked so conscientiously before God and man, that their friends could speak of them without a blush, and their adversaries could say nothing to their disgrace.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 8. For from you sounded out the word of the
    Lord , etc.] By which is meant the Gospel, and is so called because it is from the Lord, as the author of it: and it is of the Lord, as the subject of it; and it is by the Lord, as the minister or dispenser of it; and it is owing to the efficacy of his grace that it is useful and successful, and ought to be attended to, received, and obeyed, not as the word of man, but as the word of the Lord. This is said to have sounded out, alluding to the blowing of a trumpet, to which the Gospel is sometimes compared, as to the silver trumpet under the law, for the gathering of the people of Israel; or to the trumpet blown in the years of jubilee, which proclaimed liberty, release of debts, and restoration of inheritances, as the Gospel in a spiritual sense does; or to the trumpet used in war to prepare for the battle, and therefore should not give an uncertain sound; or as used musically, the Gospel being a joyful sound; and this sounding of it may denote the clear publication and open declaration, and large spread of it far and near: though, when it is said to sound forth from the Thessalonians, it is not to be understood as if the Gospel first began to be preached among them, and from thence went to other places; it was preached at Philippi before it came to them, and at many other places before it was there; the word of the Lord, according to the prophecy of ( Isaiah 2:2) came from Jerusalem; Christ and his apostles first preached there, and from thence their words and sound went to the ends of the earth; but not so much the preaching of the Gospel, as the fame and report of its being preached in this place, is here meant: and so the Latin translation of the Syriac version renders it, for from you went the report of the word of our Lord; the fame of its being preached and received at Thessalonica, in the manner it was, spread itself, not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place ; not only at Philippi, Berea, Athens, and Corinth, and other cities and towns in those countries, but also in other parts of the world; and what greatly contributed to it were the uproar that was made at Thessalonica, and continued at Berea upon the first preaching of the Gospel in those parts by the unbelieving Jews; as also the large numbers both of Greeks and Jews, and of devout women of considerable families, that were converted: to which may be added, that Thessalonica was the metropolis of Macedonia, and a city of great trade, and much frequented from all parts both by sea and land; and by this means it came to pass, that not only the fame of the preaching of the word among them went abroad everywhere; but, as the apostle adds, your faith to God-ward is spread abroad ; meaning the grace of faith bestowed on them, by which they received the Gospel in the love of it, assented to it, and professed it, and which has God for its object, and is very valuable, since such public notice is taken of it; and which shows that it was not kept to themselves, and lay hid in their own breasts; but they declared it both by words and by deeds, by making a profession of it, and by walking agreeably to it: so that we had no need to speak anything ; the Syriac version adds, concerning you; concerning the preaching of the Gospel among them, their faith in it and profession of it, all being so well known in the several places where they came; for it seems it was usual with the apostles, when they came to any place, to speak of their success in others, and of the faith, and hope, and joy of other Christians, for the encouragement of, and as ensamples to those to whom they minister; but with relation to the Thessalonians this was unnecessary.

    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

    8. Hath sounded forth (exhchtai). N.T.o . LXX
    Joel iii. 14; Sir. xl. 13, of thunder; 3 Macc. iii. 2, of a report. It means a loud, unmistakable proclamation.

    The word of the Lord (o logov tou kuriou). The phrase in Paul only in these Epistles. Comp. 2 Thess. iii. 1; iv. 15. Comparatively frequent in Acts. Paul has logov Qeou or tou Qeou word of God, eight times, and logov tou cristou word of the Christ, once, Col. iii. 16. The meaning here is the gospel, regarded either as the message proceeding from the Lord, or concerning him. It is the eujaggelion qeou the gospel of God: see ch. 2, 8, 9; Rom. i. 1; xv. 16; 2 Cor. xi. 7; As Professor Sanday remarks on Rom. i. 1, "it is probably a mistake in these cases to restrict the force of the genitive to one particular aspect: all aspects are included in which the gospel is in any way related to God and Christ." In every place. A rhetorical exaggeration, signifying the whole known world. It is explained by the extensive commercial relations of Thessalonica. Comp. Rom. i. 8; Col. i. 6, 23, 2 Cor. ii. 14. Is spread abroad (exelhluqen). Lit.and better, has gone forth. 12


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    1:8 {From you hath sounded forth} (af' humwn execetai). Perfect passive indicative of execew, late compound verb (ex, ecos, ecw, ece, our echo) to sound out of a trumpet or of thunder, to reverberate like our echo. Nowhere else in the N.T. So "from you" as a sounding board or radio transmitting station (to use a modern figure). It marks forcibly "both the clear and the persuasive nature of the logos tou kuriou" (Ellicott). this phrase, the word of the Lord, may be subjective with the Lord as its author or objective with the Lord as the object. It is both. It is a graphic picture with a pardonable touch of hyperbole (Moffatt) for Thessalonica was a great commercial and political center for disseminating the news of salvation (on the Egnation Way). {But in every place} (all' en panti topwi). In contrast to Macedonia and Achaia. The sentence would naturally stop here, but Paul is dictating rapidly and earnestly and goes on. {Your faith to God-ward} (he pistis humwn he pros ton qeon). Literally, {the faith of you that toward the God}. The repeated article makes clear that their faith is now directed toward the true God and not toward the idols from which they had turned (verse #10). {Is gone forth} (exeleluqen). Second perfect active indicative of old verb exercomai, to go out, state of completion like execetai above. {So that we need not to speak anything} (hwste me creian ecein hemas lalein ti). hwste with the infinitive for actual result as in verse #7. No vital distinction between lalein (originally to chatter as of birds) and legein, both being used in the _Koin_ for speaking and preaching (in the N.T.).
