2 Corinthians 8:18-19

8:18 And we are sending 1  along with him the brother who is praised by all the churches for his work in spreading the gospel. 2  8:19 In addition, 3  this brother 4  has also been chosen by the churches as our traveling companion as we administer this generous gift 5  to the glory of the Lord himself and to show our readiness to help. 6 

1 tn This verb has been translated as an epistolary aorist.

2 tn Grk “the brother of whom the praise in the gospel [is] throughout all the churches.”

3 tn Grk “gospel, and not only this, but.” Here a new sentence was started in the translation.

4 tn Grk “he”; the referent (the brother mentioned in v. 18) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

5 tn That is, the offering or collection being taken to assist impoverished Christians.

6 tn The words “to help” are not in the Greek text but are implied (see L&N 25.68).
