    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:17

    Y todo lo que hagis, sea de palabra, o de hecho, hacedlo todo en el nombre del Seor Jess, dando gracias al Dios y Padre por l.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Colossians 3:17

    Verse 17. Whatsoever ye do in word or
    deed] Let your words be right, and your actions upright.

    Do all in the name of the Lord Jesus] Begin with him, and end with him; invoke his name, and pray for his direction and support, in all that ye do; and thus every work will be crowned with all requisite success. Doing every thing in the name of God, and referring every thing to his glory, is as rational as it is pious. Could it be ever supposed that any person would begin a bad work in God's name? However, it is so. No people in the universe more strictly adhere to the letter of this advice than the Mohammedans; for they never undertake a work, eat meat, nor write a book, without prefacing all with:-( Arabic) Bismillahi, Arrahmani, Arraheemi; "In the name of the most merciful and compassionate God." Not only books of devotion, but books on all arts and sciences, books of tales and romances, books of poetry, and those on the elements of reading, &c., begin thus; nay, it is prefixed to the (Arabic) Lizit un Nissa, one of the most abominable productions that ever came from the pen of man, and is precisely the same among the Mohammedans, as the infamous work of Nicholas Chorier, called Elegantiae Latini Sermonis, falsely attributed to John Meursius, has been among some called Christians. Of both, with a trifling hyberbole, it may be said: "Surely these books were written in hell, and the author of them must certainly be the devil." Giving thanks to God] Even praises, as well as prayers, must ascend to God through this Mediator. We have no authority to say that God will accept even our thanksgiving, unless it ascend to him through Christ Jesus.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 17. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed , etc.] Whether in preaching the word of Christ, in hearing the Gospel, in singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, and in conference and conversation with each other; or in whatsoever action, civil or religious throughout the whole life and conversation, in the performance of things natural, moral, and evangelical, relating to God or man, or one another, in the world or church: do all in the name of the Lord Jesus ; both in the strength of Christ, without whom nothing can be well said or done; and according to the mind and will of Christ declared in the Gospel, which is his name; and calling upon his name for assistance in the ministration of his word, administration of his ordinances, and in the performance of every duty, directing all to, and having solely in view his honour and glory: giving thanks to God, and the Father by him ; this shows, that singing of psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, is a distinct thing from giving of thanks, mentioned in the preceding verse. The things for which thanks are to be given, are all things; and the time when, always, as in (see Gill on Ephesians 5:20). The person to whom they are to be given is God the Father, the Father of our spirits, and of our mercies, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, and of us in him; and the person by whom they are to be given, is Christ, which is just and proper, since all mercies come from, and through him; nor is there any other way of bringing and offering the sacrifices of praise and thanksgiving to God; nor are they, nor can they be acceptable to God by, and through any other, but by him alone.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 12-17 - We must not only do no hurt to any, but do what good we can to all Those who are the
    elect of God, holy and beloved, ought to be lowly an compassionate towards all. While in this world, where there is so muc corruption in our hearts, quarrels will sometimes arise. But it is ou duty to forgive one another, imitating the forgiveness through which we are saved. Let the peace of God rule in your hearts; it is of his working in all who are his. Thanksgiving to God, helps to make u agreeable to all men. The gospel is the word of Christ. Many have the word, but it dwells in them poorly; it has no power over them. The sou prospers, when we are full of the Scriptures and of the grace of Christ. But when we sing psalms, we must be affected with what we sing Whatever we are employed about, let us do every thing in the name of the Lord Jesus, and in believing dependence on him. Those who do all in Christ's name, will never want matter of thanksgiving to God, even the Father.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    17. In the name. See on
    Matt. xxviii. 19.

    Giving thanks. Notice the emphasis on the duty of thanksgiving placed at the close of the exhortations. See ch. i. 12; ii. 7; iii. 15; iv. 2.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    3:17 {Whatever ye do} (pan hoti ean poiete). Indefinite relative (everything whatever) with ean and the present active subjunctive, a common idiom in such clauses. {Do all} (panta). The imperative poieite has to be supplied from poiete in the relative clause. panta is repeated from pan (singular), but in the plural (all things). pan is left as a nominative absolute as in #Mt 10:32; Lu 12:10. this is a sort of Golden Rule for Christians "in the name of the Lord Jesus" (en onomati kuriou iesou), in the spirit of the Lord Jesus (#Eph 5:20). What follows (directions to the various groups) is in this same vein. Sociological problems have always existed. Paul puts his finger on the sore spot in each group with unerring skill like a true diagnostician.
