Vincent Word Studies - 2 Corinthians 11:8 - 11:8

(Show All Books | Show All Chapters)

This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

I robbed (ἐσύλησα)

Only here in the New Testament, though it appears in the verb ἱεροσυλέω to commit sacrilege, Rom 2:22, and in ἱεροσύλοι robbers of churches, Act 19:37. Originally to strip off, as arms from a slain foe, and thence, generally, to rob, plunder, with the accompanying notion of violence. Paul thus strongly expresses the fact that he had accepted from other churches more than their share, that he might not draw on the Corinthians.

Wages (ὀψώνιον)

See on Rom 6:23.
