20:33 I have coveted - Here the apostle begins the other branch of his farewell discourse, like old Samuel, #1Sam 12:3|, taking his leave of the children of Israel.


People's Bible Notes for Acts 20:33


Ac 20:33,34 I have coveted no man's silver. No motives of self-interest could induce him to labor in the work to which he was called. It offered no earthly emoluments. We have found that at Corinth he worked with his own hands for support. We here learn that he did the same thing at Ephesus. See Ac 18:3 2Th 3:10-12 1Co 4:11,12. He also warns Timothy to flee from the love of money as hurtful, an admonition that should never be forgotten (see 1Ti 6:10).
