This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Our apostle had shown in the foregoing verse, that their patience under persecution was a manifest evidence of God's intending them a portion of that kingdom, for which they suffered persecution; now in this verse he denounces the persecutor's doom upon them, namely, That the righteous nature of God did oblige him to recompense tribulation, and to repay trouble, to all such as did trouble them, and unkindly persecute them for righteousness' sake.

Learn thence, That as persecutors generally do continue finally impenitent, so the heaviest stroke of divine vengeance shall fall on such, in the day of God's most righteous judgment: It is a righteous thing with God to render tribulation to them that trouble you.
