    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:2

    cumplid mi gozo; que sintis lo mismo, teniendo una misma caridad, unnimes, sintiendo una misma cosa.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Philippians 2:2

    Verse 2. Fulfil ye my
    joy] Ye ought to complete my joy, who have suffered so much to bring you into the possession of these blessings, by being like-minded with myself, having the same love to God, his cause, and me, as I have to him, his cause, and you.

    Being of one accord] Being perfectly agreed in labouring to promote the honour of your Master; and of one mind, being constantly intent upon this great subject; keeping your eye fixed upon it in all you say, do, or intend.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 2. Fulfil ye my joy , etc.] The Arabic version adds, by these things; meaning not his joy in the Lord Jesus Christ, which arose from views of interest his person, blood, and righteousness; which was had by believing in him, by enjoying communion with him, and living in hope of the glory of God; this in a fruit of the Spirit, ( Galatians 5:22), and is called joy in the Holy Ghost; who, as he was the author, must be the finisher of it, and not the Philippians; much less does he mean that fulness of joy in the presence, and at the right hand of God in heaven, which he expected to have; but that which arose from the state, conduct, and mutual respect of the saints to each other; he had much joy in them, on account of the good work being begun, and carrying on in their souls; and because of their steadfastness in the faith, notwithstanding the persecutions they met with; and on account of their continued love to him, and the late fresh instance of it they had given, in sending their minister with a present to him, and who had given him a particular account of their affairs; but his joy was not yet full, there were some things which damped it; as the unbecoming walk and conversation of some, of whom he spoke with grief of heart, and tears in his eyes; and the inclination of others to listen to the false teachers, those of the concision, or circumcision; and the murmurings, disputings, and divisions of others among them, that were contentious and quarrelsome; wherefore to crown his joy, and fill it brimful, he signifies that their unity in affection, judgment, and practice, would do it, for so he explains it as follows: that ye be likeminded , or equally affected to one another; that since they were but as one man, were one body, and had but one head, and one Spirit, that quickened and comforted them, and had but one faith and one baptism, they ought to be one in affection, practice, and judgment; this is the general, of which the following are the particulars: having the same love ; both for quality, being hearty, sincere, and unfeigned; and for quantity, returning the same that is measured to them; and with respect to objects, loving the same Christ, the same doctrines of Christ, the same ministers of the Gospel, and all the saints, rich and poor, high and low, weak or strong believers, without making any difference, by which means unity is preserved: for if one loves Christ, and another antichrist; one loves one doctrine, and another the opposite to it; one loves a teacher of the law, and another a preacher of the Gospel, one loves one Gospel minister, and one loves another, in distinction from, and opposition to the other; one loves the rich and not the poor, men of great gifts and grace, and neglects the meaner saints; when this is the case, they cannot be said to have the same love, nor can there be harmony, concord, and agreement: [being] of one accord , or being alike in soul; having the same soul, not in substance and number, as some philosophers have asserted, but having the same affection, judgment, and will, as the first Christians are said to be of one heart and of one soul; or unanimous in their sentiments about doctrines and ordinances, being all of a piece in their practices; and agreeing in all their counsels, debates, acts, and votes, in their church meetings: of one mind ; in the doctrines of grace, in the ordinances of the Gospel; and in the discipline of the church: the means of preserving and increasing such affection, unity, and agreement, are next directed to.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-4 - Here are further exhortations to
    Christian duties; to like-mindednes and lowly-mindedness, according to the example of the Lord Jesus Kindness is the law of Christ's kingdom, the lesson of his school, the livery of his family. Several motives to brotherly love are mentioned If you expect or experience the benefit of God's compassions to yourselves, be compassionate one to another. It is the joy of minister to see people like-minded. Christ came to humble us, let there not be among us a spirit of pride. We must be severe upon our own faults, an quick in observing our own defects, but ready to make favourabl allowances for others. We must kindly care for others, but not be busy-bodies in other men's matters. Neither inward nor outward peac can be enjoyed, without lowliness of mind.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    2.
    Fulfill (plhrwsate). Or complete. Compare John iii. 29.

    Be like-minded (to auto fronhte). Lit., think the same thing. The expression is a general one for concord, and is defined in the two following clauses: unity of affection, the same love; unity of sentiment, of one accord. The general expression is then repeated in a stronger form, thinking the one thing. A.V. and Rev., of one mind.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    2:2 {Fulfil} (plerwsate). Better here, "fill full." Paul's cup of joy will be full if the Philippians will only keep on having unity of thought and feeling (to auto phronte, present active subjunctive, keep on thinking the same thing). {Being of one accord} (sunpsuchoi). Late word here for the first time, from sun and yuce, harmonious in soul, souls that beat together, in tune with Christ and with each other. {Of one mind} (to hen phronountes). "Thinking the one thing." Like clocks that strike at the same moment. Perfect intellectual telepathy. Identity of ideas and harmony of feelings.
