Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Timothy 4:9

_ _ (1 Timothy 1:15). This verse (Greek), “faithful is the saying,” etc. confirms the assertion as to the “promise” attached to “godliness,” 1 Timothy 4:8, and forms a prefatory introduction to 1 Timothy 4:10, which is joined to 1 Timothy 4:9 by “For.” So 2 Timothy 2:11. Godly men seem to suffer loss as to this life: Paul hereby refutes the notion [Bengel]. “God is the Savior specially of those that believe” (1 Timothy 4:10), both as to “the life that now is,” and also as to “the life which is to come” (1 Timothy 4:8).

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Timothy 4:9

(13) This [is] a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation.

(13) He goes a little from his matter, and shows that those who give themselves to godliness, even though they are afflicted and reproached, are nonetheless not to be considered miserable as other men are, because they are not afflicted for that reason that other men are, and the end of them both is far different one from the other. For how can God forsake his own, who is bountiful even towards his enemies? And he wishes that this doctrine is well learned by them.
