Phm 1:6. Ὃπως, that) This depends on thou hast, Phm 1:5.-ἡ κοινωνία τῆς πίστεώς σου, the communion [the communication] of thy faith) i.e. thy faith, which thou hast in common with us and exercisest.-ἐνεργὴς γένηται, may become effectual) Paul speaks at first indefinitely.-ἐν ἐπιγνώσει παντὸς ἀγαθοῦ, in [by] the acknowledging of every good thing) Every good thing is all the riches which JESUS procured for us by His poverty, when he lived as a poor man upon the earth. He briefly intimates to his friend what he lays down more expressly in 2Co 8:9, where there is also, ye know. JESUS ought in turn to enjoy (in His own people) those benefits which He has conferred upon us. An elegant circle, ἀγαθὸν, good or benefit, occurs presently afterwards, Phm 1:14.-εἰς, into) Construed with may become. The good shown to us ought to redound unto Christ.
