At the present time your plenty will supply what they need, so that in turn their plenty will supply what you need. The goal is equality,
King James Bible
But by an equality, that now at this time your abundance may be a supply for their want, that their abundance also may be a supply for your want: that there may be equality:
American Standard Version
but by equality: your abundance being a supply at this present time for their want, that their abundance also may become a supply for your want; that there may be equality:
Young's Literal Translation
but by equality, at the present time your abundance -- for their want, that also their abundance may be for your want, that there may be equality,
2 Corinthians 8:14 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
But by an equality - That you may do to those who are distressed now, as, on a change of circumstances, you would wish them to do to you. And I only wish that of your abundance you would now minister to their wants; and it may be that there abundance may yet supply your wants; for so liable are all human affairs to change, that it is as possible that you rich Corinthians should need the charitable help of others as it is that those Jews, who once had need of nothing, should now be dependent on your bounty.
That there may be equality - That ye may exert yourselves so in behalf of those poor people that there may be between you an equality in the necessaries of life; your abundance supplying them with that of which they are utterly destitute.
