Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Timothy 6:7

_ _ For — confirming the reasonableness of “contentment.”

_ _ and it is certainVulgate and other old versions support this reading. The oldest manuscripts, however, omit “and it is certain”; then the translation will be, “We brought nothing into the world (to teach us to remember) that neither can we carry anything out” (Job 1:21; Ecclesiastes 5:15). Therefore, we should have no gain-seeking anxiety, the breeder of discontent (Matthew 6:25).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Timothy 6:6-12.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Timothy 6:7

Neither can we carry anything out — To what purpose, then, do we heap together so many things? O, give me one thing, — a safe and ready passage to my own country!

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Timothy 6:7

(7) For we brought nothing into [this] world, [and it is] certain we can carry nothing out.

(7) He mocks the folly of those who do so greedily hunger after frail things, who can in no way be satisfied, and yet nonetheless cannot enjoy their excess.
