Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on 1 John 2:9-11.


1 John 2:10

_ _ Abiding in love is abiding in the light; for the Gospel light not only illumines the understanding, but warms the heart into love.

_ _ none occasion of stumbling — In contrast to, “He that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.” “In him who loves there is neither blindness nor occasion of stumbling [to himself]: in him who does not love, there is both blindness and occasion of stumbling. He who hates his brother, is both a stumbling-block to himself, and stumbles against himself and everything within and without; he who loves has an unimpeded path” [Bengel]. John has in mind Jesus’ words, John 11:9, John 11:10. Alford well says, “The light and the darkness are within ourselves; admitted into us by the eye, whose singleness fills the whole body with light.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 John 2:7-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 John 2:10

He that loveth his brother — For Christ's sake. Abideth in the light — Of God. And there is no occasion of stumbling in him — Whereas he that hates his brother is an occasion of stumbling to himself. He stumbles against himself, and against all things within and without; while he that loves his brother, has a free, disencumbered journey.
