Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Thessalonians 5:13

_ _ very highlyGreek, “exceeding abundantly.”

_ _ for their work’s sake — The high nature of their work alone, the furtherance of your salvation and of the kingdom of Christ, should be a sufficient motive to claim your reverential love. At the same time, the word “work,” teaches ministers that, while claiming the reverence due to their office, it is not a sinecure, but a “work”; compare “labor” (even to weariness: so the Greek), 1 Thessalonians 5:12.

_ _ be at peace among yourselves — The “and” is not in the original. Let there not only be peace between ministers and their flocks, but also no party rivalries among yourselves, one contending in behalf of some one favorite minister, another in behalf of another (Mark 9:50; 1 Corinthians 1:12; 1 Corinthians 4:6).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Thessalonians 5:11-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Thessalonians 5:13

Esteem them very highly — Literally, more than abundantly, in love — The inexpressible sympathy that is between true pastors and their flock is intimated, not only here, but also in divers other places of this epistle. See 1 Thessalonians 2:7-8. For their work's sake — The principal ground of their vast regard for them. But how are we to esteem them who do not work at all?

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Thessalonians 5:13

And to esteem them very highly in love for (d) their work's sake. (8) [And] be at peace among yourselves.

(d) So then, when this reason ceases, then must the honour cease. (8) The maintenance of mutual harmony, is to be especially guarded.
