Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Thessalonians 2:12

_ _ worthy of God — “worthy of the Lord” (Colossians 1:10); “worthily of the saints” (Romans 16:2, Greek): “... of the Gospel” (Philippians 1:27) “... of the vocation wherewith ye are called” (Ephesians 4:1). Inconsistency would cause God’s name to be “blasphemed among the Gentiles” (Romans 2:24). The Greek article is emphatical, “Worthy of THE God who is calling you.”

_ _ hath called — So one of the oldest manuscripts and Vulgate. Other oldest manuscripts, “Who calleth us.”

_ _ his kingdom — to be set up at the Lord’s coming.

_ _ glory — that ye may share His glory (John 17:22; Colossians 3:4).

Matthew Henry's Commentary
