Philippians 1:12 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Rather (μᾶλλον)

For the furtherance of the Gospel rather than, as might have been expected, for its hindrance.

Furtherance (προκοπὴν)

Only here, Philippians 1:25, and 1 Timothy 4:15. The metaphor is uncertain, but is supposed to be that of pioneers cutting (κόπτω) a way before (πρό) an army, and so furthering its march. The opposite is expressed by ἐγκόπτω to cut into; hence to throw obstacles in the way, hinder. Galatians 5:7. See on 1 Peter 3:7.
