“Some indeed preach Christ even of envy and strife; and some also of good will:”
King James Version (KJV)
1:15-16 Some indeed preach Christ out of contention - Envying St. Paul's success, and striving to hurt him thereby. Not sincerely - From a real desire to glorify God. But supposing - Though they were disappointed. To add more affliction to my bonds - By enraging the Romans against me.
Php 1:15 Some indeed preach Christ even of envy and strife. The motives of all preachers are not pure. Some still preach Christ, full of envy for other preachers, and some from a love of strife. Those envious of Paul were probably Judaizing Christians. See Php 1:16.
