“Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.”
King James Version (KJV)
4:5 Let your gentleness - Yieldingness, sweetness of temper, the result of joy in the Lord. Be known - By your whole behaviour. To all men - Good and bad, gentle and froward. Those of the roughest tempers are good natured to some, from natural sympathy and various motives; a Christian, to all. The Lord - The judge, the rewarder, the avenger. Is at hand - Standeth at the door.
Php 4:5 Your moderation. Your forbearance. The Lord [is] at hand. A special watchword of the early church in time of trouble. It meant practically "Deliverance is near".
