This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

1Co 4:17. Τιμόθεον, Timotheus) 1Co 16:10.-τέκνον μου, my son) and therefore imitator. Paul calls Timothy his brother; see 2Co 1:1, note; but in this passage the affection of the father is uppermost in his thought.-ἀγαπητὸν, beloved) to whom I have willingly committed the business.-πιστὸν, faithful) to whom I could safely commit the business.-ἀναμνήσει, will remind you) He does not say will teach. The Corinthians had knowledge; they had need of admonition.-τὰς ὁδούς μου, my ways) in which I walked whilst with you.-καθὼς, even as) as διάκονος, a minister.-ἐκκλησίᾳ, in the church) emphatically in the singular number.
