SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:15

Saludad a los hermanos que estn en Laodicea, y a Ninfas, y a la Iglesia que est en su casa.

Clarke's Bible Commentary - Colossians 4:15

Verse 15. Salute-Nymphas, and the Church-in his
house.] This person, and his whole family, which probably was very numerous, appear to have received the Gospel; and it seems that, for their benefit and that of his neighbours, he had opened his house for the worship of God. In those primitive times there were no consecrated places, for it was supposed that the simple setting apart of any place for the worship of God was a sufficient consecration. See of those domestic churches, Rom. xvi. 5; 1 Cor. xvi. 19.

John Gill's Bible Commentary

Ver. 15. Salute the
brethren which are in Laodicea , etc.] Where there was a church mentioned in the following verse, of which see on Gill Revelation 2:10 . And Nymphas ; which some, unskilful in the Greek language, have took for a woman; whereas it is the name of a man, as the following words show; and is a contraction of Nymphios, or Nymphidios, or Nymphodoros: and the church which is in his house . This man seems to have been an inhabitant of Laodicea, and that the church there met at his house to worship God, to pray unto him, sing his praise, hear his word, and attend on all ordinances: or his own family was brought up so strictly to the observance of these things, that they looked like a little church of themselves.

Matthew Henry Commentary

Verses 10-18 -
Paul had differed with Barnabas, on the account of this Mark, yet he is not only reconciled, but recommends him to the churches; an example of a truly Christian and forgiving spirit. If men have been guilty of fault, it must not always be remembered against them. We must forget a well as forgive. The apostle had comfort in the communion of saints an ministers. One is his fellow-servant, another his fellow-prisoner, an all his fellow-workers, working out their own salvation, an endeavouring to promote the salvation of others. The effectual, ferven prayer is the prevailing prayer, and availeth much. The smiles flatteries, or frowns of the world, the spirit of error, or the workin of self-love, leads many to a way of preaching and living which come far short of fulfilling their ministry. But those who preach the sam doctrine as Paul, and follow his example, may expect the Divine favou and blessing __________________________________________________________________

Vincent's NT Word Studies

15. Nymphas. Probably contracted from Nymphodorus, as Artemas from Artemidorus (
Tit. iii. 12): Zenas from Zenodorus (Tit. iii. 13); Olympas from Olympiodorus (Rom. xvi. 15).

The Church. Compare Philemon 2; Rom. xvi. 5; 1 Cor. xvi. 19; Acts xii. 12.

His house (autou). Others read aujtwn their (so Rev., Lightfoot, Meyer). Others, as Westcott and Hort, aujthv her, regarding the name as female, Nympha. It is difficult, however, to know to whom the plural can refer. Some explain, Nymphas and his family. Meyer refers it to the brethren at Laodicaea and Nymphas, and thinks that the allusion is to a foreign church in filial association with the church at Laodicaea, and holding its meetings in the same place.


Robertson's NT Word Studies

4:15 {Nymphas} (numfan). That is masculine, if autou (his) is genuine (D E K L) after kat' oikon, but numfa (feminine) if autes (her) is read (B 67). Aleph A C P read autwn (their), perhaps including adelfous (brethren) and so locating this church (ekklesia) in Laodicea. It was not till the third century that separate buildings were used for church worship. See #Ro 16:5 for Prisca and Aquila. It is not possible to tell whether it is "her" or "his" house here.
