Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Philippians 4:13

_ _ I can do all thingsGreek,I have strength for all things”; not merely “how to be abased and how to abound.” After special instances he declares his universal power — how triumphantly, yet how humbly! [Meyer].

_ _ through Christ which strengtheneth me — The oldest manuscripts omit “Christ”; then translate, “In Him who giveth me power,” that is, by virtue of my living union and identification with Him, who is my strength (Galatians 2:20). Compare 1 Timothy 1:12, whence probably, “Christ” was inserted here by transcribers.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
