  • Verse 3

    We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith groweth exceedingly, and the charity of every one of you all toward each other aboundeth;

    are
    2:13; Romans 1:8; 1 Corinthians 1:4; 1 Thessalonians 1:2,3; 3:6,9

    groweth
    The word, [huperauxano (u(perauca/nw)] from [huper (u(peÑr)] intensive, and [auxano (au)ca/nw)] to grow, increase, signifies, as Dr. Clarke remarks, to grow luxuriantly, as a good and healthy tree in a good soil; and, if a fruit tree, bearing an abundance of fruit to compensate the labour of the husbandman. Faith is one of the seeds of the kingdom: this the Apostle had sowed and watered, and God gave an abundant increase. Their faith was multiplied, and their love abounded: and this was not the case with some distinguished characters only; it was the case with every one of them. For this the apostle felt himself bound to give continual thanks to God on their behalf, as it was "meet" and right.
