NET © Notes

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

tn Or “must assist.”

tn Or “the sick.” See Eph 4:28.

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.
