“For ye know what commandments we gave you, etc.]”

When among them; such as those of faith and love, the ordinances of the Gospel, baptism, and the Lord’s supper, and all such as relate to the worship and service of God, to the discipline of Christ’s house, to their behaviour one towards another, and their conduct in the world: and which were delivered to them, not as from themselves, and by their own authority, but

“by the Lord Jesus;”

In his name, and by his authority, and as ordered by him; for their commission ran to teach men all things, whatsoever Christ commanded: now since they knew what these commandments were, and whose they were, and the obligation they lay under to regard them, the apostle makes use of it as a reason or argument to engage them to obedience to them; for he that knows his Lord’s will, and does it not, shall be beaten with many stripes, (Luke 12:47).
