Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Philippians 2:26

_ _ For — reason for thinking it “necessary to send” “Epaphroditus. Translate as Greek,Inasmuch as he was longing after you all.”

_ _ full of heaviness — The Greek expresses the being worn out and overpowered with heavy grief.

_ _ because that ye had heard that he had been sick — rather, “that he was sick.” He felt how exceedingly saddened you would be in hearing it; and he now is hastening to relieve your minds of the anxiety.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Philippians 2:19-30.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Philippians 2:26

He was full of heaviness — Because he supposed you would be afflicted at hearing that he was sick.
