This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Ye did run (ἐτρέχετε)

Better, as giving the force of the imperfect, ye were running. You were on the right road, and were making good progress when this interruption occurred. Comp. Gal 2:2; 1Co 9:24-27; Phi 3:14; 2Ti 4:7.

Well (καλῶς)

Bravely, becomingly, honorably to yourselves and to the church. Often in Paul. See Rom 11:20; 1Co 7:37, 1Co 7:38; 2Co 11:4; Gal 4:17; Phi 4:14.

Did hinder (ἐνέκοψεν)

See on 1Pe 3:7. Comp. 1Th 2:18; Rom 15:22.

Obey the truth (ἀληθείᾳ πείθεσθαι)

The exact phrase N.T.o. Disobey (ἀπειθοῦσι) the truth, Rom 2:8 : obedience (ὑπακοή) of the truth, 1Pe 1:22.
