    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:1

    ¶ Por lo cual, no pudiendo esperar ms, acordamos quedarnos solos en Atenas,

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Thessalonians 3:1

    Verse 1. Wherefore, when we could no longer, &c.] The
    apostle was anxious to hear of their state, and as he could obtain no information without sending a messenger express, he therefore sent Timothy from Athens; choosing rather to be left alone, than to continue any longer in uncertainty relative to their state.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-5 - The more we find
    pleasure in the ways of God, the more we shall desir to persevere therein. The apostle's design was to establish and comfor the Thessalonians as to the object of their faith, that Jesus Chris was the Saviour of the world; and as to the recompence of faith, whic was more than enough to make up all their losses, and to reward all their labours. But he feared his labours would be in vain. If the devi cannot hinder ministers from labouring in the word and doctrine, he will, if possible, hinder the success of their labours. No one woul willingly labour in vain. It is the will and purpose of God, that we enter into his kingdom through many afflictions. And the apostles, fa from flattering people with the expectation of worldly prosperity i religion, told them plainly they must count upon trouble in the flesh Herein they followed the example of their great Master, the Author of our faith. Christians were in danger, and they should be forewarned they will thus be kept from being improved by any devices of the tempter.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    1. Forbear (stegontev). Lit. no longer forbearing. See on 1 Corinthians ix. 12; LXX, Sir. viii. 17. For Class. parall. Soph. O. C. 15; Elec. 1118; Eurip. Hippol. 844; Ion 1412. He means that his longing for some
    personal communication from the Thessalonians became intolerable.

    To be left - alone (kataleifqhnai - monoi). Implying, as we sent (ver. 2) and I sent (ver. 5), the previous presence of Timothy with him at Athens.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    3:1 {When we could no longer forbear} (meketi stegontes). stegw is old verb to cover from stege, roof (#Mr 2:4), to cover with silence, to conceal, to keep off, to endure as here and #1Co 9:12; 13:7. In the papyri in this sense (Moulton and Milligan's _Vocabulary_). meketi usual negative with participle in the _Koin_ rather than ouketi. {We thought it good} (eudokesamen). Either literary plural as in #2:18 or Paul and Silas as more likely. If so, both Timothy and Silas came to Athens (#Ac 17:15f.), but Timothy was sent ({we sent}, epemyamen, verse #2) right back to Thessalonica and later Paul sent Silas on to Beroea or Thessalonica (verse #5, {I sent}, epempsa). qen both Silas and Timothy came from Macedonia to Corinth (#Ac 18:5). {Alone} (monoi). Including Silas. {God's minister} (diakonon tou qeou). See on Mt 22:13 for this interesting word, here in general sense not technical sense of deacon. Some MSS. have {fellow-worker} (sunergon). Already {apostle} in #2:7 and now {brother, minister} (and possibly {fellow-worker}).
