    SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:15

    Y sabis tambin vosotros, oh filipenses, que al principio del Evangelio, cuando partí de Macedonia, ninguna Iglesia me comunic en razn de dar y recibir, sino vosotros solos.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Philippians 4:15

    Verse 15. In the beginning of the
    Gospel] When, having preached to you, I went forth into Macedonia, I received help from none of the Churches which I had founded, but from you alone. I received nothing from any others, and nothing was offered me.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 15. Now ye Philippians know also , etc.] As well as the
    apostle did, that they not only communicated now, but also had done formerly, and when none else beside them did; wherefore he not only commends them for their present kindness to him, but for their past favours: that in the beginning of the Gospel ; of the preaching of it by the apostle in the parts of Macedonia, particularly at Philippi; as soon as ever the Gospel was preached to them, they showed a grateful and beneficent spirit; of which we have an instance in Lydia, the first person we read of converted there, and also in the jailer, who was the next; (see Acts 16:12,14,15,34,40); yea, not only while he was with them they communicated to him, but when he was gone from them: when I departed from Macedonia ; when he went to Corinth and other places, to preach the Gospel in other parts and to other people, they sent the brethren after him with presents which supplied what was lacking to him, and in which other churches were deficient; (see 2 Corinthians 11:8,9); the Ethiopic version reads, when ye went from Macedonia with me: but is not supported by any copy or other version: no church communicated with me, as concerning giving and receiving , but ye only ; the phrase, giving and receiving, is the same with tmw am , which is often used by the Jews for trading and commerce ; and the allusion is to the keeping of accounts by men in business, by debtor and creditor, in a book, putting down in one column what is delivered out, and in the other what is received, whereby accounts are kept clear: the apostle's meaning is, that whereas he and his fellow ministers had delivered out spiritual things to this church, they had in return communicated their carnal things; so that there was a proper account kept, which was not observed by other churches, and which was greatly to the commendation of this.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 10-19 - It is a good
    work to succour and help a good minister in trouble. The nature of true Christian sympathy, is not only to feel concern for ou friends in their troubles, but to do what we can to help them. The apostle was often in bonds, imprisonments, and necessities; but in all he learned to be content, to bring his mind to his condition, and make the best of it. Pride, unbelief, vain hankering after something we have not got, and fickle disrelish of present things, make men discontente even under favourable circumstances. Let us pray for patient submissio and hope when we are abased; for humility and a heavenly mind when exalted. It is a special grace to have an equal temper of mind always And in a low state not to lose our comfort in God, nor distrust his providence, nor take any wrong course for our own supply. In prosperous condition not to be proud, or secure, or worldly. This is harder lesson than the other; for the temptations of fulness an prosperity are more than those of affliction and want. The apostle ha no design to urge them to give more, but to encourage such kindness a will meet a glorious reward hereafter. Through Christ we have grace to do what is good, and through him we must expect the reward; and as we have all things by him, let us do all things for him, and to his glory.

    15. When I departed from
    Macedonia. On his first European circuit, going by way of Athens to Corinth, where he was joined by Silvanus and Timothy, bringing a contribution from Macedonia. Acts xviii. 5; 2 Corinthians xi. 9.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    4:15 {In the beginning of the
    gospel} (en archi tou euaggeliou). After he had wrought in Philippi (#2Th 2:13). {Had fellowship} (ekoin"nsen). "Had partnership" (first aorist active indicative). {In the matter} (eis logon). "As to an account." No other church opened an account with Paul. {Of giving and receiving} (dose"s kai lmpse"s). Credit and debit. A mercantile metaphor repeated in verse #17 by eis logon humwn (to your account). Paul had to keep books qen with no other church, though later Thessalonica and Beroea joined Philippi in support of Paul's work in Corinth (#2Co 11:8f.). {But ye only} (ei me humeis monoi). Not even Antioch contributed anything but good wishes and prayers for Paul's work (#Ac 13:1-3).
