    SEV Biblia, Chapter 20:31

    Por tanto, velad, acordndoos que por tres aos de noche y de día, no he cesado de amonestar con lgrimas a cada uno de vosotros.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Acts 20:31

    Verse 31. Therefore
    watch, and remember] The only way to abide in the truth is to watch against evil, and for good; and to keep in mind the heavenly doctrines originally received. Unwatchfulness and forgetfulness are two grand inlets to apostasy.

    By the space of three years] trietian. The Greek word here does not necessarily mean three whole years: it may be months more or less. In chap. xix. 8, 10, we have an account of his spending two years and three months among them; probably this is all that is intended. One MS., perceiving that the time of three years was not completed, inserts dietian, the space of two years.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 31. Therefore watch , etc.] Meaning both over themselves, and the flock; to prevent, if possible, false teachers entering in, and to nip the buds of heresy and schism, as soon as they appear, and to preserve themselves, and the church, from being carried away with the error of the wicked. And remember that by the space of three years ; reckoning from his first coming to Ephesus, unto this time, that he now called at Miletus; (see Acts 18:19,20 19:8,10,22, 20:3,6,17) and I ceased not to warn everyone night and day with tears ; that is, he was constantly and continually cautioning them against false teachers, and their doctrines, in the most tender and affectionate manner; shedding tears at the thoughts of what mischief would be done, and how many souls would be ruined by them; which gives a lively idea of the apostle, and his ministry, of his affection, zeal, and diligence, very worthy of the imitation of all the preachers of the Gospel. Several copies, and all the Oriental versions, read, everyone of you.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 28-38 - If the Holy
    Ghost has made ministers overseers of the flock, that is shepherds, they must be true to their trust. Let them consider their Master's concern for the flock committed to their charge. It is the church He has purchased with his own blood. The blood was his as Man yet so close is the union between the Divine and human nature, that it is there called the blood of God, for it was the blood of Him who is God. This put such dignity and worth into it, as to ransom believer from all evil, and purchase all good. Paul spake about their souls with affection and concern. They were full of care what would become of them. Paul directs them to look up to God with faith, and commends the to the word of God's grace, not only as the foundation of their hop and the fountain of their joy, but as the rule of their walking. The most advanced Christians are capable of growing, and will find the wor of grace help their growth. As those cannot be welcome guests to the holy God who are unsanctified; so heaven would be no heaven to them but to all who are born again, and on whom the image of God is renewed it is sure, as almighty power and eternal truth make it so. He recommends himself to them as an example of not caring as to things of the present world; this they would find help forward their comfortabl passage through it. It might seem a hard saying, therefore Paul adds to it a saying of their Master's, which he would have them alway remember; "It is more blessed to give than to receive:" it seems the were words often used to his disciples. The opinion of the children of this world, is contrary to this; they are afraid of giving, unless in hope of getting. Clear gain, is with them the most blessed thing tha can be; but Christ tell us what is more blessed, more excellent. I makes us more like to God, who gives to all, and receives from none and to the Lord Jesus, who went about doing good. This mind was in Christ Jesus, may it be in us also. It is good for friends, when the part, to part with prayer. Those who exhort and pray for one another may have many weeping seasons and painful separations, but they wil meet before the throne of God, to part no more. It was a comfort to all, that the presence of Christ both went with him and stayed with them __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    31.
    Watch (grhgoreite). See on Mark viii. 35.

    To warn (nouqetwn). From nouv, the mind, and tiqhmi, to put. Lit., to put in mind; admonish (so Rev., better than warn). "It's fundamental idea is the well-intentioned seriousness with which one would influence the mind and disposition of another by advice, admonition, warning, putting right, according to circumstances" (Cremer).


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    20:31 {Wherefore watch ye} (dio gregoreite). Paul has concluded his defence of himself and his warning. Now he exhorts on the basis of it (dio) because of which thing. The very command of Jesus concerning the perils before his return as in #Mr 13:35 (gregoreite), the very form (late present imperative from the second perfect egregora of egeirw, to arouse). Stay awake. {I ceased not to admonish} (ouk epausamen nouqetwn). Participle describes Paul, I did not cease admonishing, night and day (nukta kai hemeran, accusative of extent of time, for three years trietian, accusative of extent of time also). nouqetwn is from nouqetew, to put sense into one. So Paul kept it up with tears (verse #19) if so be he could save the Ephesians from the impending perils. Forewarned is to be forearmed. Paul did his duty by them.
