1 Timothy 6:2 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Partakers of the benefit (οἱ τῆς εὐεργεσίας ἀντιλαμβανόμενοι)

The verb means to take hold of; hence, to take hold for the purpose of helping; to take up for, as Luke 1:54; Acts 20:35. oP. Ἑυεργεσία, benefit only here and Acts 4:9. Better, kindly service. Rend. they that busy themselves in the kindly service. The reference is to the kindly acts which the masters do to their slaves; not to the benefits received by the slaves. Comp. Galatians 5:13.
