Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Do good (ἀγαθοεργεῖν)

In this uncontracted form, N.T.o. olxx, oClass. Comp. Acts 14:17. The usual word is ἀγαθοποιεῖν, see Mark 3:4; Luke 6:9, Luke 6:33, Luke 6:35; 1 Peter 2:15. oP. who has ἐργάζεσθαι τὸ ἀγαθὸν to work that which is good, Romans 2:10; Galatians 6:10; Ephesians 4:28.

Good works (ἔργοις καλοῖς)

For καλός see on 1 Timothy 3:7, and John 10:11 : for ἀγαθός on Romans 5:7.

Ready to distribute (εὐμεταδότους)

N.T.o. olxx, oClass. For the verb μεταδιδόναι to impart to the poor, see Luke 3:11; Ephesians 4:28.

Willing to communicate (κοινωνικούς)

N.T.o. olxx. See on fellowship, Acts 2:42, and comp. κοινωνεῖν to partake, 1 Timothy 5:22, and κοινός common, Titus 1:14. Stronger than the preceding word, as implying a personal share in the pleasure imparted by the gift.
