Philippians 4:9 Meaning and Commentary

Philippians 4:9

These things which ye have both learned
Meaning from himself, in a doctrinal way: and received;
not only into their heads but hearts, had embraced cordially, with great affection, in the love thereof, as well as given a full assent to: and heard;
either publicly or privately, from the pulpit, or in conversation; or had heard of him when absent, or from him when present: and seen in me:
in his life and conversation, which were well known, and were a pattern to them that believe; and therefore he adds, do;
practise the same things which they had learned from him as their duty, and had heard him urge as such, and had seen exemplified in himself: and the God of peace shall be with you;
to give that peace which is beyond the conception of a natural man, and the expression of a spiritual one, and is the great preservative through Christ; and to enable to do and to continue to do the above things, and to keep them from all harm, and every enemy of their souls; to favour them with his gracious presence here, and with endless peace hereafter.

Philippians 4:9 In-Context

7 Then God's peace will watch over your hearts and your minds because you belong to Christ Jesus. God's peace can never be completely understood.
8 Finally, my brothers and sisters, always think about what is true. Think about what is noble, right and pure. Think about what is lovely and worthy of respect. If anything is excellent or worthy of praise, think about those kinds of things.
9 Do what you have learned or received or heard from me. Follow my example. The God who gives peace will be with you.
10 At last you are concerned about me again. That makes me very happy. We belong to the Lord. I know that you have been concerned. But you had no chance to show it.
11 I'm not saying that because I need anything. I have learned to be content no matter what happens to me.
