“Insomuch that we desired Titus, that as he had begun, so he would also finish in you the same grace also.”
King James Version (KJV)
8:6 As he had begun - When he was with you before.
2Co 8:6 We desired Titus, that as he had begun. This faithful fellow laborer of Paul, when he had gone to Corinth when Paul's first epistle was sent, had begun the collection which it commanded in 1Co 16:1. So he would also finish in you. Now Paul directs that Titus return and complete the collection before the arrival of Paul (Ac 20:1-3). The same grace also. The grace of giving.
