    SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:15

    Mirad que ninguno d a otro mal por mal; antes seguid lo bueno siempre los unos para con los otros, y para con todos.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Thessalonians 5:15

    Verse 15. See that none render
    evil for evil] Every temper contrary to love is contrary to Christianity. A peevish, fretful, vindictive man may be a child of Satan; he certainly is not a child of God.

    Follow that which is good] That by which ye may profit your brethren and your neighbours of every description, whether Jews or Gentiles.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 15. See that none render evil for evil unto any man , etc.] Not an ill word for an ill word, railing for railing, nor an ill action for an ill action; no, not to any man whatever, not to an enemy, a persecutor, a profane person, as well as not to a brother, a believer in Christ; and this the saints should not only be careful of, and guard against in themselves, but should watch over one another, and see to it, that no such practice is found in each other. But ever follow that which is good ; honestly, morally, pleasantly, and profitably good; even every good work, which is according to the will of God, is done in faith, from love, and to the glory of God; and particularly acts of beneficence and liberality to the poor; and which are not to be once, or now and then done, but to be followed and pursued after, and that always; both among yourselves, and to all men ; not only to the household of faith, though to them especially, and in the first place, but to all other men, as opportunity offers, even to our enemies, and them that persecute us, and despitefully use us; do good to their bodies, and to their souls, as much as in you lies, by feeding and clothing the one, and by praying for, advising, and instructing the other.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 12-15 - The
    ministers of the gospel are described by the work of their office which is to serve and honour the Lord. It is their duty not only to give good counsel, but also to warn the flock of dangers, and reprov for whatever may be amiss. The people should honour and love their ministers, because their business is the welfare of men's souls. An the people should be at peace among themselves, doing all they can to guard against any differences. But love of peace must not make us win at sin. The fearful and sorrowful spirits, should be encouraged, and kind word may do much good. We must bear and forbear. We must be long-suffering, and keep down anger, and this to all men. Whatever ma do to us, we must do good to others.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    15. That which is good (to agaqon). Not to be limited to profitable, beneficent (as Lightfoot, Lunemann), although ajgaqov commonly includes a corresponding beneficent relation of its subject to another subject, which is emphasized here by to all
    men. See on Rom. v. 7. It may also include what is absolutely, morally good, as Rom. ii. 10. So Heb. xiii. 21; 1 Peter iii. 11; Rom. vii. 18.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    5:15 {See to it that no one render unto any one
    evil for evil} (horate me tis kakon anti kakou apodwi). Note me with the aorist subjunctive (negative purpose) apodwi from apodidwmi, to give back. Retaliation, condemned by Jesus (#Mt 5:38-42) and by Paul in #Ro 12:17, usually takes the form of "evil for evil," rather than "good for good" (kalon anti kalou). Note idea of exchange in anti. {Follow after} (diwkete). Keep up the chase (diwkw) after the good.
