Philippians 1:14

_ _ Translate as Greek, “And that (Philippians 1:13) most of the brethren in the Lord,” etc. “In the Lord,” distinguishes them from “brethren after the flesh,” Jewish fellow countrymen. Ellicott translates, “Trusting in the Lord.

_ _ by my bonds — encouraged by my patience in bearing my bonds.

_ _ much more bold — Translate as Greek, “are more abundantly bold.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Philippians 1:12-20.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Philippians 1:14

And many — Who were before afraid. Trusting in the Lord through my bonds — When they observed my constancy, and safety not withstanding, are more bold.

Philippians 1:14

And many of the brethren in the Lord, waxing confident by my bonds, are much more bold to speak the (k) word without fear.

(k) The Gospel is called the word, to set forth the excellence of it.
