Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Thessalonians 3:3

_ _ moved — “shaken,” “disturbed.” The Greek is literally said of dogs wagging the tail in fawning on one. Therefore Tittmann explains it, “That no man should, amidst his calamities, be allured by the flattering hope of a more pleasant life to abandon his duty.” So Elsner and Bengel, “cajoled out of his faith.” In afflictions, relatives and opponents combine with the ease-loving heart itself in flatteries, which it needs strong faith to overcome.

_ _ yourselves know — We always candidly told you so (1 Thessalonians 3:4; Acts 14:22). None but a religion from God would have held out such a trying prospect to those who should embrace it, and yet succeed in winning converts.

_ _ we — Christians.

_ _ appointed thereunto — by God’s counsel (1 Thessalonians 5:9).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Thessalonians 3:1-5.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Thessalonians 3:3

We are appointed hereto — Are in every respect laid in a fit posture for it, by the very design and contrivance of God himself for the trial and increase of our faith and all other graces. He gives riches to the world; but stores up his treasure of wholesome afflictions for his children.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Thessalonians 3:3

That no man should be moved by these afflictions: (1) for yourselves know that we are appointed thereunto.

(1) The will of God, who calls his own on this condition, to bring them to glory by affliction, is a most sure remedy against all afflictions.
