Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Philippians 1:10

_ _ Literally, “With a view to your proving (and so approving and embracing) the things that excel” (Romans 2:18); not merely things not bad, but the things best among those that are good; the things of more advanced excellence. Ask as to things, not merely, Is there no harm, but is there any good, and which is the best?

_ _ sincere — from a Greek root. Examined in the sunlight and found pure.

_ _ without offence — not stumbling; running the Christian race without falling through any stumbling-block, that is, temptation, in your way.

_ _ till — rather, “unto,” “against”; so that when the day of Christ comes, ye may be found pure and without offense.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Philippians 1:9-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Philippians 1:10

That ye may try — By that spiritual sense. The things that are excellent — Not only good, but the very best; the superior excellence of which is hardly discerned, but by the adult Christian. That ye may be inwardly sincere — Having a single eye to the very best things, and a pure heart. And outwardly without offence — Holy, unblamable in all things.
