Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Acts 15:38

_ _ But Paul thought not good to take him with them who departed from them — that is, who had departed; but the word is stronger than this — “who stood aloof” or “turned away” from them.

_ _ from Pamphylia, and went not with them to the work — the work yet before them. The allusion is to what is recorded in Acts 13:13 (see on Acts 13:13).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 15:36-41.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 15:38

But Paul thought it not right — To trust him again, who had deserted them before: who had shrunk from the labour and danger of converting those they were now going to confirm.
