New Defender's Study Bible Notes
2:14 murmurings. See I Corinthians 10:10. To “murmur” means to complain or grumble. “Disputing” means “arguing.” The Christian, in working out his inward salvation, is thus commanded never to complain or argue, but rather to accept the difficulties in life willingly, confident that the Lord is allowing them for good reason, as He is preparing him or her for the age to come.
