Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 John 3:24

_ _ dwelleth in him — The believer dwelleth in Christ.

_ _ and he in him — Christ in the believer. Reciprocity. “Thus he returns to the great keynote of the Epistle, abide in Him, with which the former part concluded” (1 John 2:28).

_ _ hereby — herein we (believers) know that he abideth in us, namely, from (the presence in us of) the Spirit “which He hath given us.” Thus he prepares, by the mention of the true Spirit, for the transition to the false “spirit,” 1 John 4:1-6; after which he returns again to the subject of love.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 John 3:23-24.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 John 3:24

And he that keepeth his commandments — That thus believes and loves. Abideth in him, and God in him: and hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us — Which witnesses with our spirits that we are his children, and brings forth his fruits of peace, love, holiness. This is the transition to the treating of the Holy Spirit which immediately follows.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 John 3:24

And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the (f) Spirit which he hath given us.

(f) He means the Spirit of sanctification, whereby we are born again and live to God.
