Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Thessalonians 2:11

_ _ exhorted and comfortedExhortation leads one to do a thing willingly; consolation, to do it joyfully [Bengel], (1 Thessalonians 5:14). Even in the former term, “exhorted,” the Greek includes the additional idea of comforting and advocating one’s cause: “encouragingly exhorted.” Appropriate in this case, as the Thessalonians were in sorrow, both through persecutions, and also through deaths of friends (1 Thessalonians 4:13).

_ _ charged — “conjured solemnly,” literally, “testifying”; appealing solemnly to you before God.

_ _ every one of you — in private (Acts 20:20), as well as publicly. The minister, if he would be useful, must not deal merely in generalities, but must individualize and particularize.

_ _ as a father — with mild gravity. The Greek is, “his own children.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Thessalonians 2:7-12.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Thessalonians 2:11

By exhorting, we are moved to do a thing willingly; by comforting, to do it joyfully; by charging, to do it carefully.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Thessalonians 2:11

(9) As ye know how we exhorted and comforted and charged every one of you, as a father [doth] his children,

(9) To exhort and comfort with a fatherly mind and affection.
