    1Th 2:9

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:16

    Porque aun a Tesalnica me enviasteis lo necesario una y dos veces.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Philippians 4:16

    Verse 16. For even in
    Thessalonica] While labouring to plant the Church there, he was supported partly by working with his hands, 1 Thess. ii. 9; 2 Thess. iii. 7-9; and partly by the contributions sent him from Philippi. Even the Thessalonians had contributed little to his maintenance: this is not spoken to their credit.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 16. For even in
    Thessalonica , etc.] When the apostle was there; for from Philippi he went to Thessalonica; (see Acts 17:1); ye sent once and again unto my necessity ; for his use and service, to support him while he was at that place, and relieve and assist him in his necessities; for the people at Thessalonica were either not able to communicate, or were not of a beneficent disposition, or the apostle did not care to be chargeable to them; and they seem many of them to have been idle and lazy, and therefore he wrought among them with his own hands to set them an example; and the Philippians hearing and knowing that this was the case, sent frequently, while he was here, some of the brethren with gifts unto him.

    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.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    16. Even in
    Thessalonica (kai). Better also: in addition to the contribution received at Corinth.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    4:16 {Once and again} (kai hapax kai dis). "Both once and twice" they did it "even in
    Thessalonica" and so before Paul went to Corinth." See the same Greek idiom in #1Th 2:18.
