“Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only.”
King James Version (KJV)
4:15 In the beginning of the gospel - When it was first preached at Philippi. In respect of giving - On your part. And receiving - On mine.
Php 4:15 In the beginning of the gospel. When you first received the gospel (Ac 16:13-15). When I departed from Macedonia. Keep in mind that Philippi "was a chief city of Macedonia" (Ac 16:12). No church communicated with me . . . but ye only. "Had fellowship with me" (Revised Version). Those who sustained him were partners of his labors. See Ac 17:14.
