    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:4

    tanto, que nosotros mismos nos gloriamos de vosotros en las Iglesias de Dios, de vuestra paciencia y fe en todas vuestras persecuciones y tribulaciones que sufrís;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Thessalonians 1:4

    Verse 4. We ourselves
    glory in you in the Churches of God] We hold you up as an example of what the grace of God, can produce when communicated to honest and faithful hearts.

    For your patience and faith] From Acts xvii. 5, 13, and from 1 Thess. ii. 14, we learn, that the people of Thessalonica had suffered much persecution, both from the Jews and their own countrymen; but being thoroughly convinced of the truth of the Gospel, and feeling it to be the power of God unto salvation, no persecution could turn them aside from it. And having suffered for the truth, it was precious to them.

    Persecution never essentially injured the genuine Church of God.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 4. So that we ourselves glory in you , &c.] Or of you; for though they were the subject concerning which, yet not the object in which they gloried; the apostle elsewhere advises not to glory in men, but only in the Lord; nor was this his practice contrary to his advice, for he did not boast of these persons with respect to their carnal things; he did not glory in their flesh, nor in their riches, nor wisdom, nor strength, nor any external gift; he gloried indeed of their graces, and of the exercise and increase of them; but of these not as of themselves, or as owing to him, and his fellow ministers, but as instances of the grace of God, and for which he gives thanks to him: and besides, he did not glory of these in the presence of God, in whose presence none should glory, but in the churches of God ; the other churches in Macedonia and Achaia, as Philippi, Berea, Corinth, &c. he gave thanks to God for them, and gloried of them before men, or among the saints, to the glory of the grace of God in them, and in order to stir up other churches to an emulation and imitation of them. And the particulars he gloried of them for were as follow, for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure : many and sore were the reproaches, the afflictions, and persecutions that befell them for the sake of Christ, and their profession of him, and his Gospel; and which is more or less the case of everyone that will live godly in Christ Jesus: and these they endured, they bore and stood up under, they were not shocked, and staggered, and moved from the hope of the Gospel by them; which shows that the truth of grace was in them; for where there is not the root of the matter, when tribulation and affliction arise because of the profession of the word, such are offended, stumbled, and quickly gone; but these saints endured their afflictions, and with great patience, without murmuring and repining, and with great constancy, firmness, and resolution of mind. They stood fast in the grace and doctrine of faith, and in the profession of both, which they held without wavering, and none of the things they met with could move them from it. The apostle had mentioned their faith before, and he takes notice of it again, because their patience, constancy, and perseverance in sufferings, arose from it; for the trying of faith works patience, ( James 1:3). The Ethiopic version leaves out the word faith, but very wrongly.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-4 - Where there is the
    truth of grace, there will be an increase of it. The path of the just is as the shining light, which shines more and mor unto the perfect day. And where there is the increase of grace, God must have all the glory. Where faith grows, love will abound, for fait works by love. It shows faith and patience, such as may be proposed a a pattern for others, when trials from God, and persecutions from men quicken the exercise of those graces; for the patience and faith of which the apostle gloried, bore them up, and enabled them to endure all their tribulations.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    4.
    Glory (enkaucasqai). N.T.o . The simple verb kaucasqai to boast, and the kindred nouns kauchma ground of boasting, and kauchsiv act of boasting, are favorites with Paul.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    1:4 {So that} (hwste). Another example of hwste and the infinitive (enkaucasqai) for result as in #1Th 1:7 which see. {We ourselves} (autous hemas). Accusative of
    general reference with the infinitive, but not merely hemas (or heautous), perhaps in contrast with en humin (in you), as much as to say, "so that we ourselves, contrary to your expectations, are boasting" (Frame). enkaucaomai occurs here alone in N.T., but is found in the LXX and in _Aesop's Fables_, proof enough of its vernacular use. Paul was not above praising one church to other churches, to provoke them to good works. Here he is boasting of Thessalonica in Macedonia to the Corinthians as he did later to the Corinthians about the collection (#2Co 8:1-15) after having first boasted to the Macedonians about the Corinthians (#2Co 9:1-5). There were other churches in Achaia besides Corinth (#2Co 1:1). {For} (huper). Over, about, like peri (#1Th 1:2). {In all your persecutions} (en pasin tois diwgmois humwn). Their patience and faith had already attracted Paul's attention (#1Th 1:3) and their tribulations qliyesin (#1Th 1:6). Here Paul adds the more specific term diwgmos, old word from diwkw, to chase, to pursue, a word used by Paul of his treatment in Corinth (#2Co 12:10). {Which ye endure} (hais anecesqe). B here reads enecesqe, to be entangled in, to be held in as in #Ga 5:1, but anecesqe is probably correct and the hais is probably attracted to locative case of qliyesin from the ablative h"n after anecesqe, {from which ye hold yourselves back} (cf. #Col 3:13).
