Acts 20:34-35

Context
20:34 You yourselves know that these hands of mine 1  provided for my needs and the needs of those who were with me. 20:35 By all these things, 2  I have shown you that by working in this way we must help 3  the weak, 4  and remember the words of the Lord Jesus that he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” 5 

1 tn The words “of mine” are not in the Greek text, but are supplied to clarify whose hands Paul is referring to.

2 sn The expression By all these things means “In everything I did.”

3 tn Or “must assist.”

4 tn Or “the sick.” See Eph 4:28.

5 sn The saying is similar to Matt 10:8. Service and generosity should be abundant. Interestingly, these exact words are not found in the gospels. Paul must have known of this saying from some other source.
