Commend - a word that comes from the same root word for command.

It means to demand the attention of others. To represent oneself as worthy of special notice, regard, or kindness not given to others . . . . In short, to 'advertise' oneself . . . .

"We don’t dare class or compare ourselves with some of the people who 'advertise,' (rendered 'commend' in the KJV), themselves. In measuring themselves against each other and comparing themselves with each other, they are simply stupid." 2 Corinthians 10:12 CJB

Considered - Not really worthy of any good thing, but given care, attention, and viewed attentively anyway. To be given merit by another.

Since we have come to be CONSIDERED 'righteous' by God, because of our trust, let us continue to have 'shalom' with God through our Lord, Yeshua the Messiah."
Romans 5:1 CJB

So since we are presently only 'considered' Righteous by God, what could we possibly have, in ourselves, to ever be 'commended' for if in all truth . . .
" . . . When we display our righteous deeds,
they are, (considered), nothing but filthy rags." Isaiah 64:5 (6)  CBJ

It aint our deeds kids, it is entirely of His doing that we are considered righteous.
Jesus is to be commended, NOT us!
