Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Thessalonians 2:10

_ _ Ye are witnesses — as to our outward conduct.

_ _ God — as to our inner motives.

_ _ holily — towards God.

_ _ justly — towards men.

_ _ unblamably — in relation to ourselves.

_ _ behaved ourselvesGreek, “were made to be,” namely, by God.

_ _ among you that believe — rather, “before (that is, in the eyes of) you that believe”; whatever we may have seemed in the eyes of the unbelieving. As 1 Thessalonians 2:9 refers to their outward occupation in the world; so 1 Thessalonians 2:10, to their character among believers.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Thessalonians 2:7-12.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Thessalonians 2:10

Holily — In the things of God. Justly — With regard to men. Unblamable — In respect of ourselves. Among you that believe — Who were the constant observers of our behaviour.

1 Thessalonians 2:10

(8) Ye [are] witnesses, and God [also], how holily and justly and unblameably we behaved ourselves among you that believe:
