Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Philippians 1:15

_ _ “Some indeed are preaching Christ even for envy, that is, to carry out the envy which they felt towards Paul, on account of the success of the Gospel in the capital of the world, owing to his steadfastness in his imprisonment; they wished through envy to transfer the credit of its progress from him to themselves. Probably Judaizing teachers (Romans 14:1-23; 1 Corinthians 3:10-15; 1 Corinthians 9:1, etc.; 2 Corinthians 11:1-4).

_ _ some also of — rather, “for”

_ _ good will — answering to “the brethren” (Philippians 1:14); some being well disposed to him.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Philippians 1:12-20.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Philippians 1:15-16

Some indeed preach Christ out of contention — Envying St. Paul's success, and striving to hurt him thereby. Not sincerely — From a real desire to glorify God. But supposing — Though they were disappointed. To add more affliction to my bonds — By enraging the Romans against me.
