Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Philippians 1:28

_ _ terrified — literally, said of horses or other animals startled or suddenly scared; so of sudden consternation in general.

_ _ which — your not being terrified.

_ _ evident token of perdition — if they would only perceive it (2 Thessalonians 1:5). It attests this, that in contending hopelessly against you, they are only rushing on to their own perdition, not shaking your united faith and constancy.

_ _ to you of salvation — The oldest manuscripts read, “of your salvation”; not merely your temporal safety.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Philippians 1:27-30.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Philippians 1:28

Which — Namely, their being adversaries to the word of God, and to you the messengers of God. Is an evident token — That they are in the high road to perdition; and you, in the way of salvation.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Philippians 1:28

(9) And in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to them an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that of God.

(9) We ought not to be discouraged but rather encouraged by the persecutions which the enemies of the Gospel imagine and practise against us: seeing that the persecutions are certain witnesses from God himself both of our salvation, and of the destruction of the wicked.
