Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Thessalonians 1:8

_ _ from you sounded ... the word of the Lord — not that they actually became missionaries: but they, by the report which spread abroad of their “faith” (compare Romans 1:8), and by Christian merchants of Thessalonica who traveled in various directions, bearing “the word of the Lord” with them, were virtually missionaries, recommending the Gospel to all within reach of their influence by word and by example (1 Thessalonians 1:7). In “sounded,” the image is that of a trumpet filling with its clear-sounding echo all the surrounding places.

_ _ to God-ward — no longer directed to idols.

_ _ so that we need not to speak any thing — to them in praise of your faith; “for (1 Thessalonians 1:9) they themselves” (the people in Macedonia, Achaia, and in every place) know it already.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Thessalonians 1:6-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Thessalonians 1:8

For from you the word sounded forth — (Thessalonica being a city of great commerce.) Being echoed, as it were, from you. And your conversion was divulged far beyond Macedonia and Achaia. So that we need not speak anything — Concerning it.
