Philippians 2:3 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Let nothing be done (μηδὲν)

Rev., doing nothing. The Greek is simply nothing, depending either, as A.V. and Rev., on the verb to do understood, or on thinking (φρονουντες) of the preceding verse: thinking nothing. The latter is preferable, since the previous and the following exhortations relate to thinking or feeling rather than to doing.

Through strife (κατὰ ἐριθείαν)

Rev., correctly, faction. Lit., according to faction. See on James 3:14; and Philippians 1:16. According to indicates faction as the regulative state of mind.

Vain glory (κενοδοξίαν)

Only here in the New Testament. The kindred adjective κενόδοξοι desirous of vain glory, occurs only at Galatians 5:26. In the Septuagint the word is used to describe the worship of idols as folly (see Wis. 14:14), and in 4 Macc. 5:9, the verb κενοδοξέω is used of following vain conceits about the truth. The word is compounded of κενός empty, vain, and, δόξα opinion (but not in the New Testament), which, through the intermediate sense of good or favorable opinion, runs into the meaning of glory. See on Revelation 1:6.

Lowliness of mind (ταπεινοφροσύνῃ)

See on Matthew 11:29.
