Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Thessalonians 3:5

_ _ If “the Lord” be here the Holy Ghost (2 Corinthians 3:17), the three Persons of the Trinity will occur in this verse.

_ _ love of God — love to God.

_ _ patient waiting for Christ — rather as Greek, “the patience (endurance) of Christ,” namely, which Christ showed [Alford] (2 Thessalonians 2:4; 1 Thessalonians 1:3). Estius, however, supports English Version (compare Revelation 1:9; Revelation 3:10). At all events, this grace, “patience,” or persevering endurance, is connected with the “hope” (1 Thessalonians 1:3, 1 Thessalonians 1:10) of Christ’s coming. In Alford’s translation we may compare Hebrews 12:1, Hebrews 12:2, “Run with patience (endurance) ... looking to JESUS ... who, for the joy that was before Him, endured the cross”; so WE are to endure, as looking for the hope to be realized at His coming (Hebrews 10:36, Hebrews 10:37).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Thessalonians 3:1-5.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Thessalonians 3:5

Now the Lord — The Spirit, whose proper work this is. Direct — Lead you straight forward. Into the patience of Christ — Of which he set you a pattern.
