Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Thessalonians 2:19

_ _ For — giving the reason for his earnest desire to see them.

_ _ Are not even ye in the presence of ... Christ — “Christ” is omitted in the oldest manuscripts. Are not even ye (namely, among others; the “even” or “also,” implies that not they alone will be his crown) our hope, joy, and crown of rejoicing before Jesus, when He shall come (2 Corinthians 1:14; Philippians 2:16; Philippians 4:1)? The “hope” here meant is his hope (in a lower sense), that these his converts might be found in Christ at His advent (1 Thessalonians 3:13). Paul’s chief “hope” was JESUS CHRIST (1 Timothy 1:1).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Thessalonians 2:17-20.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Thessalonians 2:19

Ye also — As well as our other children.
