    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:20

    conforme a mi deseo y esperanza, que en nada ser avergonzado; antes bien con toda confianza, como siempre, ahora tambin ser engrandecido el Cristo en mi cuerpo, o por vida, o por muerte.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Philippians 1:20

    Verse 20. Earnest expectation] He had the most confident expectation that
    God would stand by him, so that he should be enabled, with the utmost liberty of speech, ev pash parrhsia, to testify the Gospel of the grace of God; and, should he have the liberty of doing so, he was utterly regardless what the issue might be relative to himself. Whether life or death, was to him perfectly equal, and perfectly indifferent, providing Christ were magnified-his person, nature, doctrine, &c., shown to be, what they really are, most noble, most excellent, most necessary, and most glorious.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 20. According to my earnest expectation and [my]
    hope , etc.] These words are so placed as that they may refer both to what goes before and what follows after; and the sense be either that the apostle had earnest expectation and hope, even a strong confidence of his salvation, or deliverance from his confinement; and also of his having an interest in the prayers of the saints, and that hereby a supply of the Spirit would be given him; for as he knew and was sure that his God would supply the wants of others, he had great reason to believe he would supply his own; and especially since he had been told by Christ that his grace was sufficient for him: or as in connection with what follows; he had a full persuasion that he should not be put to shame on any account; that in nothing I shall be ashamed ; not of his hope, neither the grace of hope, which makes not ashamed; nor the object of hope, Christ Jesus; nor the thing hoped for, eternal life and happiness, or any of the above things about which this grace was conversant; nor of his reproaches and sufferings for the sake of Christ and his Gospel, which he esteemed as an honour to him, as jewels in his crown, as chains of gold about his neck, and as great riches; nor of the Gospel which he preached, so as to retract and deny it, drop the whole, or conceal any part of it, lay down his profession of it, or cease to preach it: but his earnest desire and his firm hope and faith were, [that] with all boldness, as always ; that as he had, so he should continue to use boldness in the exercise of faith at the throne of grace, come with freedom thither, and stand before God with intrepidity, through the blood and righteousness of his Son; and that as he had met with afflictions and sufferings for Christ's sake, with cheerfulness and an undaunted spirit, none of these things had moved him, so he believed he never should; and that as he had all along, throughout the whole course of his ministry, preached the Gospel with plainness, openness, and freedom, without any guise or reserve, and that with an holy courage and boldness in the face of all opposition; [so] now also Christ shall be magnified in my body ; for this being Christ's, his great concern was to glorify him in it; and though it was a poor, weak, and crazy body, yet rich treasure being put into this earthen vessel, Christ had been greatly magnified, extolled, and made very high in it; never was there, as the apostle, such a magnifier of Christ, by preaching him in the transcendent glories of his person as the Son of God, in the riches of his grace as Mediator, in all his offices of prophet, priest, and King; and particularly in the justification and salvation of men, where he made him to be all in all. Christ was also magnified by him, by his life and conversation, which influenced by his grace, was in obedience to his will, was directed to his glory, was as became his Gospel, and what adorned his doctrine in all things; and also by enduring such hardships and so great sufferings on his account; the power of Christ was greatly magnified in supporting him under them, and carrying him through them; and as this had been the case ever since he was in the ministry, it being the main thing he had in view, he had a well grounded hope and confidence, that it would ever be so: whether [it be] by life or by death ; that is, should he live longer, should he be delivered from his present confinement, and be spared a little longer among men, he comfortably assured Christ would be magnified by him in his body, and as long as he was in it; for his determination was to preach him and him only, to spend his life in his service, and to seek not his own things, but the things of Christ; or should he be put to death quickly by the order of Nero, he doubted not but Christ would have some glory thereby; he should die calling upon his name with fervency, professing his constant and unshaken faith in him, and sealing the Gospel by his blood, with the greatest cheerfulness.

    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.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    20. Earnest expectation (apokaradokian). Only here and
    Romans viii. 19, on which see note.

    Shall be ashamed (aiscunqhsomai). Rev., better, giving the force of the passive, shall be put to shame.

    Boldness. See on Philemon 8.

    Shall be magnified in my body. Through my bodily sufferings Christ shall appear more glorious, and that even if I die.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    1:20 {Earnest expectation} (apokaradokian). In Paul alone from apokaradoke" (in papyri). See on Ro 8:19 for only other example. {Shall be magnified} (megalunqesetai). Future passive indicative of megalunw, old verb, to make great, from megas (great). See #Ac 19:17. {In my body} (en twi s"mati mou). See #Ro 12:1f. It is harder often to make Christ great in the body than in the spirit.
