1 Thessalonians 5:11 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Comfort (παρακαλεῖτε)

Rev. renders exhort; but comfort suits better the general drift of the passage, and corresponds with 1 Thessalonians 4:18. There is some force in Bornemann's suggestion that the two meanings may be combined. Exhort each other to be of good heart.

Edify (οἰκοδομεῖτε)

Lit. build up. See on Acts 20:32. The metaphorical sense habitually in Paul. See 1 Corinthians 8:1, 1 Corinthians 8:10; 1 Corinthians 10:23; 1 Corinthians 14:4; Ephesians 2:20. In O.T. mostly in the literal sense. See however lxx, Ruth 4:11; Psalm 27:5; Psalm 88:2; Jeremiah 31:4.
