2 Corinthians 9:10 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Ministereth (ἐπιχορηγῶν)

Rev., supplieth. See on add, 2 Peter 1:5.

Both minister bread, etc.

Construe bread with supplieth, as Rev., supplieth seed to the sow and bread for food.

Minister and multiply (χορηγήσαι καὶ πληθύναι)

The correct reading is the future, χορηγήσει καὶ πληθυνεῖ shall supply and multiply.

The fruits (τὰ γενήματα)

Lit., what has been begotten or born. Used of men, Matthew 3:7, A.V., generation, Rev., offspring. Elsewhere of fruits, as fruit of the vine, Mark 14:25.
