Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Philippians 2:22

_ _ Rare praise (Nehemiah 7:2).

_ _ as a son with the father — Translate, “as a child (serveth) a father.

_ _ served with me — When we might expect the sentence to run thus. “As a child serveth a father, so he served me”; he changes it to “served with me” in modesty; as Christians are not servants TO one another,” but servants of God WITH one another (compare Philippians 3:17).

_ _ in the gospelGreek,unto,” or “for the Gospel.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Philippians 2:19-30.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Philippians 2:22

As a son with his father — He uses an elegant peculiarity of phrase, speaking partly as of a son, partly as of a fellowlabourer.
