Acts 20:20

Context
20:20 You know that I did not hold back from proclaiming 1  to you anything that would be helpful, 2  and from teaching you publicly 3  and from house to house,

Acts 20:35

Context
20:35 By all these things, 4  I have shown you that by working in this way we must help 5  the weak, 6  and remember the words of the Lord Jesus that he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” 7 

1 tn Or “declaring.”

2 tn Or “profitable.” BDAG 960 s.v. συμφέρω 2.b.α has “τὰ συμφέροντα what advances your best interests or what is good for you Ac 20:20,” but the broader meaning (s.v. 2, “to be advantageous, help, confer a benefit, be profitable/useful”) is equally possible in this context.

3 tn Or “openly.”

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

5 tn Or “must assist.”

6 tn Or “the sick.” See Eph 4:28.

7 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.
