CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
5:14 Warn the disorderly - Them that stand, as it were, out of their rank in the spiritual warfare. Some such were even in that church. The feeble - minded - Literally, them of little soul; such as have no spiritual courage.
"Misery stole me at my birth And cast me helpless on the wild." The words of this hymn express my condition from my first advent into the world.
