Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 John 2:6

_ _ abideth — implying a condition lasting, without intermission, and without end.

_ _ He that saith ... ought — so that his deeds may be consistent with his words.

_ _ even as he — Believers readily supply the name, their hearts being full of Him (compare John 20:15). “Even as He walked” when on earth, especially in respect to love. John delights in referring to Christ as the model man, with the words, “Even as He,” etc. “It is not Christ’s walking on the sea, but His ordinary walk, that we are called on to imitate” [Luther].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 John 2:3-6.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 John 2:6

He that saith he abideth in him — which implies a durable state; a constant, lasting knowledge of, and communion with, him. Ought himself — Otherwise they are vain words. So to walk, even as he walked — In the world. As he, are words that frequently occur in this epistle. Believers having their hearts full of him, easily supply his name.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 John 2:6

(5) He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.

(5) He that is one with Christ, must live his life, that is, must walk in his steps.
