This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

20Now to our God and Father This may be taken as a general thanksgiving, by which he closes the epistle; or it may be viewed as bearing more particularly upon the last clause in reference to the liberality shewn to Paul. (259) For in respect of the assistance which the Philippians had afforded him, it became him to reckon himself indebted to them for it in such a manner as to acknowledge, that this aid had been afforded to them by the mercy of God.



(259) “La liberalite de laquelle les Philippiens auoyent vse enuers sainct Paul;” — “ liberality which the Philippians had exercised towards St. Paul.”
