CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
Consider what I say; - see the notes at 1 Timothy 4:15.

Such are often the discouragements of the ministry; so prone is the mind to despondency, that we need the help of the Lord to enable us to apply the most obvious considerations, and to derive support from the most plain and simple truths and promises.
