    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:10

    para que andis como es digno del Seor, agradndole en todo, fructificando en toda buena obra, y creciendo en el conocimiento de Dios.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Colossians 1:10

    Verse 10. That ye might
    walk worthy of the Lord] Suitably to your Christian profession, exemplifying its holy doctrines by a holy and useful life. See the notes on Eph. iv. 1; and on Phil. i. 27.

    Unto all pleasing] Doing every thing in the best manner, in the most proper time, and in a becoming spirit. Even a good work may be marred and rendered fruitless by being done improperly, out of season, or in a temper of mind that grieves the Holy Spirit.

    Being fruitful in every good work] See on ver. 6.

    St. Paul exhorts the Christians at Colosse, 1. To walk - to be active in their Christian calling. 2. To walk worthily - suitably to the dignity of that calling, and to the purity of that God who had called them into this state of salvation. 3. To do every thing unto all pleasing; that God might be pleased with the manner, the time, the motive, disposition, design, and object of every act. 4. That they should be fruitful; mere harmlessness would not be sufficient; as God had sown good seed, he expected good fruit. 5. That every work should be good; they must not be fruitful in some works and fruitless in others. 6. That they should increase in religious knowledge as time rolled on, knowing, by genuine Christian experience, more of God, of his love, and of his peace, day by day.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 10. That ye might walk worthy of the Lord , etc.] The Vulgate Latin version reads, of God; to which the Ethiopic version agrees; but rather the Lord Jesus Christ seems to be designed: and to walk worthy of him, is to walk by faith in him; to walk after his Spirit, and according to his word, and in his ordinances; to have the conversation as becomes his Gospel, and worthy of that calling wherewith the saints are called by grace to the obtaining of his kingdom and glory. The apostle prays that their knowledge might issue in practice; for knowledge, without practice, is of no avail: he first asks for knowledge, and then practice, for how should men act according to the will of God, or Christ, unless they know it? and when they know it, they should not rest in their knowledge, but put it in practice: unto all pleasing . The Syriac reads it, that ye may please God in all good works: an unregenerate man cannot please God in anything; without faith in Christ it is impossible to please him by anything man can do; Christ only could, and did always the things that pleased his Father; there are many things done by believers which are displeasing to God; nor is there anything they can do that is pleasing to God but through Christ, in whom their persons and, services are accepted; good works being done in faith, and from a principle of love, and with a view to the glory of God, are acceptable unto him through Christ; and therefore are to be carefully maintained, and studiously performed by all those that have a spiritual understanding of the will of God, and believe in Christ their Lord and Redeemer: being fruitful in every good work ; saints are trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord; good works are the fruit, which, under the influence of divine grace, they bring forth; and this is not of one sort only, as trees usually do, but of every kind; being ingrafted into Christ the true vine, and deriving life, sap, and nourishment from him, they are filled with the fruits of righteousness by him, which they bring forth and bear, to the glory of his heavenly Father; and being such, they are pleasant plants to him, as fruit bearing trees are to the owner of them: wherefore, in order to the saints walking in their lives and conversations unto all pleasing, or pleasing in all things, the apostle prays they might be fruitful in good works, and that in everyone, in every kind of good works: and increasing in the knowledge of God ; not barely of his nature and perfections, as they are displayed in the works of creation; but of his mind, and will, and the mysteries of his grace, as they are revealed in the Gospel; of the knowledge of him in Christ, as the God of all grace, and as a covenant God and Father. The apostle had before prayed for an increase of the knowledge of the will of God, previous to his request, for the putting of it in practice; and now suggests, that an increase of the knowledge of God himself may be expected in a practical use of means, an attendance on the ordinances of Christ, and a diligent performance of good works: from the whole of these petitions, it may be observed by the apostle's asking for them, that all our knowledge, and the increase of it, and all our fruitfulness in good works, are all from the Lord; and therefore we have no reason to boast of our knowledge, nor depend upon our works, but frankly to own, that notwithstanding all we know, and do, we are but unprofitable servants.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 9-14 - The
    apostle was constant in prayer, that the believers might be fille with the knowledge of God's will, in all wisdom. Good words will not d without good works. He who undertakes to give strength to his people is a God of power, and of glorious power. The blessed Spirit is the author of this. In praying for spiritual strength, we are no straitened, or confined in the promises, and should not be so in ou hopes and desires. The grace of God in the hearts of believers is the power of God; and there is glory in this power. The special use of thi strength was for sufferings. There is work to be done, even when we ar suffering. Amidst all their trials they gave thanks to the Father of our Lord Jesus, whose special grace fitted them to partake of the inheritance provided for the saints. To bring about this change, thos were made willing subjects of Christ, who were slaves of Satan. All wh are designed for heaven hereafter, are prepared for heaven now. Thos who have the inheritance of sons, have the education of sons, and the disposition of sons. By faith in Christ they enjoyed this redemption as the purchase of his atoning blood, whereby forgiveness of sins, an all other spiritual blessings were bestowed. Surely then we shall dee it a favour to be delivered from Satan's kingdom and brought into tha of Christ, knowing that all trials will soon end, and that ever believer will be found among those who come out of great tribulation.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    10.
    Walk worthy (peripathsai axiwv). The phrase occurs Ephesians iv. 1; 1 Thess. ii. 12. Rev. gives the correct adverbial rendering worthily.

    Unto all pleasing (eiv pasan areskeian). So as to please God in all ways. Compare 1 Thess. iv. 1, Areskeia pleasing, only here in the New Testament. In classical Greek it has a bad sense, obsequiousness, cringing. Compare men-pleasers, ch. iii. 22.

    In the knowledge (eiv thn epignwsin). Lit. unto the knowledge. The best texts read th ejpignwsei "by the knowledge:" by means of.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    1:10 {To walk worthily of the Lord} (peripatesai axiws tou kuriou). this aorist active infinitive may express purpose or result. Certainly this result is the aim of the right knowledge of God. "The end of all knowledge is conduct" (Lightfoot). See #1Th 2:12; Php 1:27; Eph 4:1 for a like use of axiws (adverb) with the genitive. {In the knowledge of God} (tei epignwsei tou qeou). Instrumental case, "by means of the full knowledge of God." this is the way for fruit-bearing and growth to come. Note both participles (karpoforountes kai auxanomenoi) together as in verse #6. {Unto all pleasing} (eis pasan areskian). In order to please God in all things (#1Th 4:1). areskia is late word from areskeuw, to be complaisant (Polybius, Plutarch) and usually in bad sense (obsequiousness). Only here in N.T., but in good sense. It occurs in the good sense in the papyri and inscriptions.
