2 Corinthians 8:19 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

With this grace (ἐν τῇ χάριτι ταύτῃ)

An obscure rendering, not much bettered by Rev. Grace is ambiguous. The reference is, of course, to the contribution as a work of love; χάρις being used in the sense of benefaction or bounty. Paul says that the brother was appointed as his fellow-traveller in the matter of this bounty; in the prosecution of this kindly act. For appointed, see on Acts 14:23; see on Acts 10:41.
