People's Bible Notes for 1 Timothy 5:25


1Ti 5:25 Likewise also the good works [of some] are manifest beforehand. The same rule applies to good works. Some get credit for more by far than they deserve, while they that are otherwise cannot be hid. The good deeds of others will not be fully revealed until judgment. Then all will be estimated aright.
