2 Corinthians 11:8-9

Context
11:8 I robbed other churches by receiving support from them so that I could serve you! 1  11:9 When 2  I was with you and was in need, I was not a burden to anyone, for the brothers who came from Macedonia fully supplied my needs. 3  I 4  kept myself from being a burden to you in any way, and will continue to do so.

1 sn That is, serve them free of charge (cf. the end of v. 7).

2 tn Grk “you, and when.” A new sentence was started here in the translation.

3 tn If the participle ἐλθόντες (elqonte") is taken as temporal rather than adjectival, the translation would be, “for the brothers, when they came from Macedonia, fully supplied my needs” (similar to NASB).

4 tn Grk “needs, and I kept.” A new sentence was started here in the translation.
