    SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:27

    Os amonesto por el Seor, que esta carta sea leída a todos los santos hermanos.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Thessalonians 5:27

    Verse 27. I charge you by the
    Lord, that this epistle be read] There must have been some particular reason for this solemn charge; he certainly had some cause to suspect that the epistle would be suppressed in some way or other, and that the whole Church would not be permitted to hear it; or he may refer to the smaller Churches contiguous to Thessalonica, or the Churches in Macedonia in general, whom he wished to hear it, as well as those to whom it was more immediately directed. There is no doubt that the apostles designed that their epistles should be copied, and sent to all the Churches in the vicinity of that to which they were directed. Had this not been the case, a great number of Churches would have known scarcely any thing of the New Testament. As every Jewish synagogue had a copy of the law and the prophets, so every Christian Church had a copy of the gospels and the epistles, which were daily, or at least every Sabbath, read for the instruction of the people. This the apostle deemed so necessary, that he adjured them by the Lord to read this epistle to all the brethren; i.e. to all the Christians in that district. Other Churches might get copies of it; and thus, no doubt, it soon became general. In this way other parts of the sacred writings were disseminated through all the Churches of the Gentiles; and the errors of the different scribes, employed to take copies, constituted what are now called the various readings.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 27. I charge you by the
    Lord , etc.] Or I adjure by the Lord; by the Lord Jesus: it is in the form of an oath, and a very solemn one; and shows that oaths may be used on certain and solemn occasions: that this epistle be read unto all the holy brethren ; to all the members of the church, who are called holy, because they were sanctified or set apart by God the Father in election; and were sanctified by the blood of Christ, or their sins were expiated, or atoned for by the sacrifice of Christ in redemption; and were sanctified or made holy by the Spirit of God in regeneration; and were enabled by the grace of God to live holy lives and conversations. Now this epistle being directed only to some of the principal members of the church, it may be to one or more of their elders; lest he or they should be tempted on any account to conceal it, the apostle in a very solemn manner adjures, that it be read publicly to the whole church whom it concerned, that all might hear, and learn, and receive some advantage from it; from whence we may learn, as is observed by many interpreters, that the sacred Scriptures, neither one part nor another, nor the whole of them, are to be kept from private Christians, but may be read, and heard, and used by all.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 23-28 - The
    apostle prays that they might be sanctified more perfectly, for the best are sanctified but in part while in this world; therefore we should pray for, and press toward, complete holiness. And as we mus fall, if God did not carry on his good work in the soul, we should pra to God to perfect his work, till we are presented faultless before the throne of his glory. We should pray for one another; and brethre should thus express brotherly love. This epistle was to be read to all the brethren. Not only are the common people allowed to read the Scriptures, but it is their duty, and what they should be persuaded to do. The word of God should not be kept in an unknown tongue, but transplanted, that as all men are concerned to know the Scriptures, s they all may be able to read them. The Scriptures should be read in all public congregations, for the benefit of the unlearned especially. We need no more to make us happy, than to know the grace of our Lord Jesu Christ. He is an ever-flowing and an over-flowing fountain of grace to supply all our wants __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    27. I charge (enorkizw). N.T.o . Rev. stronger and more literal, I adjure. Class. This
    strong appeal may perhaps be explained by a suspicion on Paul's part that a wrong use might be made of his name and authority (see 2 Thess. ii. 2), so that it was important that his views should be made known to all. Lightfoot refers to 2 Thess. iii. 17, as showing a similar feeling in his anxiety to authenticate his letter.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    5:27 {I adjure you by the
    Lord} (enorkizw humas ton kurion). Late compound for old horkizw (#Mr 5:7), to put one on oath, with two accusatives (Robertson, _Grammar_, pp. 483f.). Occurs in inscriptions. {That this epistle be read unto all the brethren} (anagnwsqenai ten epistolen pasin tois adelfois). First aorist passive infinitive of anaginwskw with accusative of general reference in an indirect command. Clearly Paul wrote for the church as a whole and wished the epistles read aloud at a public meeting. In this first epistle we see the importance that he attaches to his epistles.
