(2) That ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.--In this verse there is again a four-fold division; but of a different kind. St. Paul begins with the exhortation not uncommon from him, to be likeminded," that is, to have true sympathy (as in Romans 12:16; Romans 15:5; 2Corinthians 13:11; also Philippians 3:16; Philippians 4:2); which he naturally strengthens by the addition of "having the same love" (that is, a mutual love), to show that the sympathy is to be one not only of mind but of heart. But this does not satisfy him: he rises to the further exhortation to perfect "union of soul" (which is the proper rendering for "being of one accord") in which they shall not only be likeminded, but (in a phrase peculiar to this passage) be actually "of one mind," living in one another, each sinking his individuality in the enthusiasm of a common love.

Verse 2. - Fulfil ye my joy. St. Paul has already (Philippians 1:4) spoken of his joy derived from the life and conduct of the Philippian Christians; now he asks them to complete his joy by living in unity. There were disagreements among them (Philippians 4:2). That ye be like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. The apostle's earnestness leads him to dwell on the idea of unity, clothing the one thought again and again in different words. Βαβαί says Chrysostom, ποσάκις τὸ αὐτὸ λέγει ἀπὸ διαθέσεως πολλῆς. "Having the same love:" loving and beloved; ὁμοίως καὶ φιλεῖν καὶ φιλεῖσθαι (Chrysostom). "Being of one accord σύμψυχοι," Bishop Ellicott renders more literally, "With accordant souls minding the one thing."
