    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:17

    pero los otros por caridad, sabiendo que soy puesto en ellas por la defensa del Evangelio.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Philippians 1:17

    Verse 17. The other of
    love] Through a sincere desire, not only to make known the way of salvation to the people, but also to vindicate and help the apostle, because they considered him as appointed by God to preach and defend the Gospel. The 16th and 17th verses are transposed by ABDEFG, and several others; the Syriac, Arabic of Erpen, Coptic, Sahidic, AEthiopic, Armenian, Vulgate, Itala, and several of the fathers. On this evidence Griesbach transposed them in his edition.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 17. But the other of
    love , etc.] Those that were truly brethren in the Lord, who had received the grace of God in truth, to whom the Gospel was come in power, and who had a spiritual and experimental knowledge of Christ, and of the mysteries of his grace; these preached Christ of love, out of the love of him, as the Ethiopic version reads; that is, out of love to Christ, who to them was exceeding precious, altogether lovely, the chiefest among ten thousands, and their hearts being hot and burning with love to him, they therefore spoke of him with their tongues; and out of love to the Gospel of Christ, which with them was the pearl of great price, and every truth of it more valuable than gold, silver, and precious stones; and out of love to the church of Christ and the members of it, that their souls might be fed and nourished with the wholesome words of Christ, might be comforted with the doctrines of grace, and be established and built up in their most holy faith; and out of love to the souls of others, knowing their miserable estate by nature, and the danger they were in, and therefore preached Christ as the only way of salvation, whereby they could escape the wrath to come; and out of love to the apostle likewise, which the following clause shows; knowing that I am set for the defence of the Gospel ; meaning either that they knew he was a chosen vessel, to bear the name of Christ, and preach his Gospel in the world; that he was ordained and appointed a minister of it before the world was; separated to it from his mother's womb, and was called unto, and sent to preach it by Christ, and was set apart for it by the church; and was in a very eminent manner qualified to defend it, by preaching, disputing, writing, and suffering: or that they knew that he was laid, or lay, as the words may rendered, in prison, for defending the Gospel of Christ; yea, they knew that his lying in prison was in defence of the Gospel; and therefore, out of love to him, they joined issue with him to defend the Gospel; as he by suffering for it, so they by preaching it, which they knew full well would be matter of great joy to him.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 12-20 - The
    apostle was a prisoner at Rome; and to take off the offence of the cross, he shows the wisdom and goodness of God in his sufferings. Thes things made him known, where he would never have otherwise been known and led some to inquire after the gospel. He suffered from fals friends, as well as from enemies. How wretched the temper of those wh preached Christ out of envy and contention, and to add affliction to the bonds that oppressed this best of men! The apostle was easy in the midst of all. Since our troubles may tend to the good of many, we ough to rejoice. Whatever turns to our salvation, is by the Spirit of Christ; and prayer is the appointed means of seeking for it. Ou earnest expectation and hope should not be to be honoured of men, or to escape the cross, but to be upheld amidst temptation, contempt, an affliction. Let us leave it to Christ, which way he will make u serviceable to his glory, whether by labour or suffering, by diligenc or patience, by living to his honour in working for him, or dying to his honour in suffering for him.

    3588 δε 1161 εξ 1537 αγαπης 26 ειδοτες 1492 5761 οτι 3754 εις 1519 απολογιαν 627 του 3588 ευαγγελιου 2098 κειμαι 2749 5736

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    17. I am set (keimai). Or
    appointed. See on Luke ii. 34. Compare 1 Thessalonians iii. 3. Some, instead of rendering the one (or some) preach Christ of contention - but the other of love, join oiJ men some, oiJ de others, in each instance with the succeeding word, making one phrase, thus: "they who are of love do so knowing that I am set, etc.: they who are of faction proclaim Christ not sincerely, etc. The phrase those who are of faction occurs Rom. ii. 8; and a similar phrase, him who is of faith, Rom. iii. 26. There seems no sufficient reason for altering A.V. and Rev.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    1:17 {Of
    faction} (ex eritheias). Out of partisanship. From eriqeuw, to spin wool, and that from eriqos, a hireling. The papyri examples suit the idea of selfish ambition (Moulton and Milligan's _Vocabulary_). See #2Co 12:20; Ga 5:20. {Not sincerely} (ouch hagn"s). "Not purely," that is with mixed and impure motives. {To raise up affliction for my bonds} (qliyin egeirein tois desmois mou). Now that Paul is down they jump on him in mean and nagging ways. Dative case in desmois. "To make my chains gall me" (Lightfoot).
