Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

3 John 1:5

_ _ faithfully — an act becoming a faithful man.

_ _ whatsoever thou doest — a distinct Greek word from the former “doest”: translate, “workest”: whatsoever work, or labor of love, thou dost perform. So Matthew 26:10, “She hath wrought a good work upon me.”

_ _ and to strangers — The oldest manuscripts, “and that (that is, and those brethren) strangers.” The fact of the brethren whom thou didst entertain being “strangers,” enhances the love manifested in the act.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 3 John 1:3-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

3 John 1:5

Faithfully — Uprightly and sincerely.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

3 John 1:5

Beloved, thou doest (b) faithfully whatsoever thou doest to the brethren, and to strangers;

(b) As becomes a believer and a Christian.
