“So that my bonds in Christ are manifest in all the palace, and in all other places;”
King James Version (KJV)
1:13 My bonds in Christ - Endured for his sake. Have been made manifest - Much taken notice of. In the whole palace - Of the Roman emperor.
Php 1:13 So that my bonds in Christ are manifest in all the palace. "Throughout the whole Praetorian guard" in the Revised Version. The praetorian camp was the great military camp of a body of soldiers stationed permanently at Rome, called the praetorian guards. Paul, as a military prisoner, was under charge of its commander, the praefect. The necessity of reporting regularly would make him well known, and would give him many opportunities to preach Christ there and elsewhere. Compare Ac 28:16.
