For the elect's sake,— By the elect, St. Paul here seems more particularly to mean the Gentile converts: for He suffered as the apostle of the Gentiles; and he often intimates, that unless he through grace had so laboured and suffered, and they persevered in holiness and piety, both he and they would have missed of salvation and eternal glory. See 1 Thessalonians 3:5.
