Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

An unction (χρίσμα)

The word means that with which the anointing is performed - the unguent or ointment. In the New Testament only here and 1 John 2:27. Rev., an anointing. The root of this word and of Χριστός, Christ, is the same. See on Matthew 1:1. The anointing is from the Anointed.

The Holy One

Christ. See John 6:69; Acts 3:14; Acts 4:27, Acts 4:30; Revelation 3:7.

Ye know all things (οἴδατε πα.ντα)

The best texts read πάντες, ye all know; in which case the connection is with the following clause: "I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it."
