    King James Bible - 2 Corinthians 12:14

    Behold, the third time I am ready to come to you; and I will not be burdensome to you: for I seek not yours, but you: for the children ought not to lay up for the parents, but the parents for the children.

    World English Bible

    Behold, this is the
    third time I am ready to come to you, and I will not be a burden to you; for I seek not your possessions, but you. For the children ought not to save up for the parents, but the parents for the children.

    Douay-Rheims - 2 Corinthians 12:14

    Behold now the
    third time I am ready to come to you; and I will not be burthensome unto you. For I seek not the things that are yours, but you. For neither ought the children to lay up for the parents, but the parents for the children.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    Behold, the
    third time I am ready to come to you; and I will not be burdensome to you: for I seek not yours, but you. For the children ought not to lay up for the parents, but the parents for the children.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 12:14

    He aquí estoy aparejado para ir a vosotros la tercera vez, y no os ser gravoso; porque no busco vuestras cosas, sino a vosotros; porque no han de atesorar los hijos para los padres, sino los padres para los hijos.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Corinthians 12:14

    Verse 14. The
    third time I am ready] That is, this is the third time that I am ready-have formed the resolution, to visit you. He had formed this resolution twice before, but was disappointed. See 1 Cor. xvi. 5, and chap. i. 15, 16. He now formed it a third time, having more probability of seeing them now than he had before. See chap. xiii. 2.

    I seek not yours, but you] I seek your salvation, I desire not your property; others have sought your property, but not your salvation. See chap. xi. 20.

    For the children ought not to lay up for the parents] You may have many teachers, but you have but one FATHER; for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the Gospel; see 1 Cor. iv. 15. Ye are my children, and I am your father. You have not contributed to my support, but I have been labouring for your life. I will act towards you as the loving father who works hard, and lays up what is necessary to enable his children to get their bread.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 14. Behold, the third time I am ready to come to you , etc..] Not that he had been twice at Corinth, and was now about to come a third time; for as yet he had been but once there, when he first preached to them, was the means of their conversion, and settled them in a church state; he had promised them to come a second time, but as yet was prevented; (see Corinthians 16:5, 2 Corinthians 1:15), and now a third time he had purposed it in his mind, and had prepared for it, and was just ready to come unto them; when he assures them he had not altered his mind, nor should he change his conduct, but steer the same course he had: and I will not be burdensome to you ; he signifies he would preach the Gospel freely to them, and take nothing of them; and this he says lest they should think with themselves, that though he took no stipend of them before, yet when he came again he would: for I seek not yours ; their money and substance, as did the false apostles: but you ; they themselves, their spiritual good and welfare, the comfort, edification, instruction, and salvation of their immortal souls; like a good and faithful shepherd, who sought not the fleece, but the good of the flock; or rather like a loving tender father, that was affectionately concerned for the good of his children: for the children ought not to lay up for the parents, but the parents for the children ; not but that children ought to take care of, and provide for their aged and indigent parents, and churches ought to maintain their faithful ministers; but the apostle argues from a common fact which nature and affection direct unto, and have formed into a sort of a law, that parents not only care for their children, bring them up, and provide for them food and raiment; but as they are blessed by Providence, lay up treasures for them for tithe to come, and not children for their parents; this is neither usual nor necessary, for however, as the case may be, children may be obliged to maintain their parents when grown old and in want, yet not to lay up substance for them for futurity; and by it the apostle suggests, that he was a spiritual father to these Corinthians, and they were his children; for whose spiritual welfare he had the highest concern, and whatever he did was out of no disrespect to them, but from the strongest affection for them.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 11-21 - We owe it to good
    men, to stand up in the defence of their reputation and we are under special obligations to those from whom we have received benefit, especially spiritual benefit, to own them a instruments in God's hand of good to us. Here is an account of the apostle's behaviour and kind intentions; in which see the character of a faithful minister of the gospel. This was his great aim and design to do good. Here are noticed several sins commonly found amon professors of religion. Falls and misdeeds are humbling to a minister and God sometimes takes this way to humble those who might be tempte to be lifted up. These vast verses show to what excesses the fals teachers had drawn aside their deluded followers. How grievous it is that such evils should be found among professors of the gospel! Ye thus it is, and has been too often, and it was so even in the days of the apostles __________________________________________________________________

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    12:14 {
    Third time I am ready to come} (triton touto hetoimws ecw). Had he been already twice or only once? He had changed his plans once when he did not go (#1:15f.). He will not change his plans now. this looks as if he had only been once (that in #Ac 18). Note the third use of katanarkaw (#11:9; 12:13,14). They need not be apprehensive. He will be as financially independent of them as before. "I shall not sponge on you." {Not yours, but you} (ou ta humwn, alla humas). The motto of every real preacher. {To lay up} (qesaurizein). For this use of the verb see #1Co 16:2 (#Mt 6:19-21; Jas 5:3).
