1 Thessalonians 5:15 Parallel
CommentaryVincent's Word Studies
That which is good (τὸ ἀγαθὸν)
Not to be limited to profitable, beneficent (as Lightfoot, Lnemann), although ἀγαθός commonly includes a corresponding beneficent relation of its subject to another subject, which is emphasized here by to all men. See on Romans 5:7. It may also include what is absolutely, morally good, as Romans 2:10. So Hebrews 13:21; 1 Peter 3:11; Romans 7:18.
Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
Do not say, "I will repay evil"; wait for the LORD, and he will deliver you.
But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,
Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good.
Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all.
So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.
1 Thessalonians 5:21
but test everything; hold fast what is good.
1 Peter 3:9
Do not repay evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary, bless, for to this you were called, that you may obtain a blessing.
