Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Thessalonians 1:7

_ _ ensamples — So some of the oldest manuscripts read. Others, “ensample” (singular), the whole Church being regarded as one. The Macedonian Church of Philippi was the only one in Europe converted before the Thessalonians. Therefore he means their past conduct is an ensample to all believers now; of whom he specifies those “in Macedonia” because he had been there since the conversion of the Thessalonians, and had left Silvanus and Timotheus there; and those in “Achaia,” because he was now at Corinth in Achaia.
