Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Philippians 1:18

_ _ What follows from this? Does this trouble me as they thought it would? “Notwithstanding” their unkind thought to me, and self-seeking intention, the cause I have at heart is furthered “every way” of preaching, “whether in pretense (with a by motive, Philippians 1:16) or in truth (out of true ‘love’ to Christ, Philippians 1:17), Christ is proclaimed; and therein I do rejoice, yea, and I will rejoice.” From this it would seem that these self-seeking teachers in the main “proclaimed Christ,” not “another Gospel,” such as the Judaizers in Galatia taught (Galatians 1:6-8); though probably having some of the Jewish leaven (see on Philippians 1:15, Philippians 1:16), their chief error was their self-seeking envious motive, not so much error of doctrine; had there been vital error, Paul would not have rejoiced. The proclamation of Christ,” however done, roused attention, and so was sure to be of service. Paul could thus rejoice at the good result of their bad intentions (Psalms 76:10; Isaiah 10:5, Isaiah 10:7).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Philippians 1:12-20.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Philippians 1:18

In pretence — Under colour of propagating the gospel. In truth — With a real design so to do.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Philippians 1:18

(5) What then? notwithstanding, every way, whether in (m) pretence, or in truth, Christ is preached; and I therein do rejoice, yea, and will rejoice.

(5) He shows by setting forth his own example, that the end of our afflictions is true joy, and this results through the power of the Spirit of Christ, who he gives to those that ask.

(m) Under a false pretence and disguise: for they make Christ a cloak for their ambition and envy.
