1 Timothy 6:19 Parallel
Commentary
Wesley's Notes on the Bible

6:19 Treasuring up for themselves a good foundation - Of an abundant reward, by the free mercy of God. That they may lay hold on eternal life - This cannot be done by alms - deeds; yet they come up for a memorial before God, Acts 10:4.
