    Douay Rheims Bible

    I know both how to be brought low, and I know how to abound: (everywhere, and in all things I am instructed) both to be
    full, and to be hungry; both to abound, and to suffer need.

    King James Bible - Philippians 4:12

    I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be
    full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.

    World English Bible

    I know how to be humbled, and I know also how to abound. In everything and in all things I have learned the secret both to be filled and to be hungry, both to abound and to be in need.

    Philippians 4:12

    Early Christian Commentary - (A.D. 100 - A.D. 325)

    Anf-02 Pg 33.1

    Anf-03 Pg 7
    1 Cor. iv. 9.

    For if by world he had meant the people thereof, he would not have afterwards specially mentioned “men.” To prevent, however, your using such an argument as this, the Holy Ghost has providentially explained the meaning of the passage thus:  “We are made a spectacle to the world,” i.e. “both to angels,” who minister therein, “and to men,” who are the objects of their ministration.5477

    5477 Our author’s version is no doubt right. The Greek does not admit the co-ordinate, triple conjunction of the A.V.: Θέατρον ἐγενήθημεν τῷ κόσμῳ—καὶ ἀγγέλοις καὶ ἀνθρώποις.

    Of course,5478

    5478 Nimirum: introducing a strong ironical sentence against Marcion’s conceit.

    a man of the noble courage of our apostle (to say nothing of the Holy Ghost) was afraid, when writing to the children whom he had begotten in the gospel, to speak freely of the God of the world; for against Him he could not possibly seem to have a word to say, except only in a straightforward manner!5479

    5479 Nisi exserte.

    I quite admit, that, according to the Creator’s law,5480


    Anf-01 Pg 9
    Comp. 1 Cor. iv. 13. The meaning is, “My love to you is so great, that I am ready to be or to do all things for you.”

    What, then, again says the prophet? “The assembly of the wicked surrounded me; they encompassed me as bees do a honeycomb,”1501


    Anf-01 v.ii.viii Pg 3
    It is difficult to translate περίψημα in this and similar passages; comp. 1 Cor. iv. 13.

    you, who are of the540

    540 Literally, “and the.”

    most holy Church of the Ephesians, which is so famous and celebrated throughout the world. They that are carnal cannot do those things which are spiritual, nor they that are spiritual the things which are carnal; even as faith cannot do the works of unbelief, nor unbelief the works of faith. <index subject1="Holy Spirit" title="53" id="v.ii.viii-p4.1"/>But ye, being full of the Holy Spirit, do nothing according to the flesh, but all things according to the Spirit. Ye are complete in Christ Jesus, “who is the Saviour of all men, specially of them that believe.”541


    Anf-01 v.ii.xviii Pg 2
    Again, περίψημα, translated “offscouring,” 1 Cor. iv. 13.

    for the sake of the cross, which is a stumbling-block607

    Anf-02 vi.iv.i.i Pg 11.1

    Anf-01 iii.ii.v Pg 8
    Comp. 2 Cor. vi. 10.

    they are in lack of all things, and yet abound in all; they are dishonoured, and yet in their very dishonour are glorified. They are evil spoken of, and yet are justified; they are reviled, and bless;288

    Anf-02 vi.iv.i.i Pg 11.1

    Comp. 2 Cor. xii. 7.

    of Satan. And He indeed (i.e., God) is Lord for ever and ever, but he (i.e., Satan) is prince of the time1686

    1686 Cod. Sin. reads, “of the present time of iniquity.”

    of iniquity.

    Anf-01 ix.vii.iv Pg 2
    2 Cor. xii. 7–9.

    What, therefore? (as some may exclaim:) did the Lord wish, in that case, that His apostles should thus undergo buffeting, and that he should endure such infirmity? Even so it was; the word says it. For strength is made perfect in weakness, rendering him a better man who by means of his infirmity becomes acquainted with the power of God. For how could a man have learned that he is himself an infirm being, and mortal by nature, but that God is immortal and powerful, unless he had learned by experience what is in both? For there is nothing evil in learning one’s infirmities by endurance; yea, rather, it has even the beneficial effect of preventing him from forming an undue opinion of his own nature (non aberrare in natura sua). But the being lifted up against God, and taking His glory to one’s self, rendering man ungrateful, has brought much evil upon him. [And thus, I say, man must learn both things by experience], that he may not be destitute of truth and love either towards himself or his Creator.4469

    4469 We have adopted here the explanation of Massuet, who considers the preceding period as merely parenthetical. Both Grabe and Harvey, however, would make conjectural emendations in the text, which seem to us to be inadmissible.

    But the experience of both confers upon him the true knowledge as to God and man, and increases his love towards God. Now, where there exists an increase of love, there a greater glory is wrought out by the power of God for those who love Him.

    Anf-03 Pg 41
    2 Cor. xii. 7, 8.

    and then to have refused his request, when thrice entreated to liberate him! It would seem, therefore, that Marcion’s god imitates the Creator’s conduct, who is an enemy to the proud, even “putting down the mighty from their seats.”5779


    Anf-03 v.x.xiii Pg 9
    2 Cor. xii. 10.

    He also says, in verses occurring in a previous part of the epistle: “Our condition is such, that we are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; and are in need, but not in utter want; since we are harassed by persecutions, but not forsaken; it is such that we are cast down, but not destroyed; always bearing about in our body the dying of Christ.”8313
