(20) For I have no man likeminded.--That is, probably, like-minded with myself. St. Paul calls Timothy his "genuine (or, true) son in the faith" (1Timothy 1:2), a son who in spirit and affection was like his father. The word "naturally" in this verse is the same word, and should be translated genuinely, without either counterfeit or duplicity of aim; and the word "care" implies something of the same absorbing anxiety which is expressed on St. Paul's part in this passage.

Verse 20. - For I have no man like-minded; literally, of equal soul (comp. Deuteronomy 13:6, "Thy friend, which is as thine own soul"). "Timotheus,' says Bengel, "is a second Paul: where he is, there you should think that I myself am present." Others, not so well, explain the words, "I have no one like Timothy." The expression must, of course, be limited to those present at the moment, and available for the mission: it cannot in-elude St. Luke. Who will naturally care for your state (ὅστις); such as will care. Naturally (γνησίως: comp. 1 Timothy 1:2, where St. Paul calls Timothy "mine own soul in the faith," γνήσιον τέκνον); with a true, genuine affection. Timothy's love for St. Paul as his spiritual father will inspire him with genuine love for those who were so dear to St. Paul. Care is a strong word, μεριμνήσει, will be anxious (comp. Matthew 6:31). 2:19-30 It is best with us, when our duty becomes natural to us. Naturally, that is, sincerely, and not in pretence only; with a willing heart and upright views. We are apt to prefer our own credit, ease, and safety, before truth, holiness, and duty; but Timothy did not so. Paul desired liberty, not that he might take pleasure, but that he might do good. Epaphroditus was willing to go to the Philippians, that he might be comforted with those who had sorrowed for him when he was sick. It seems, his illness was caused by the work of God. The apostle urges them to love him the more on that account. It is doubly pleasant to have our mercies restored by God, after great danger of their removal; and this should make them more valued. What is given in answer to prayer, should be received with great thankfulness and joy.
