“Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account.”
King James Version (KJV)
4:17 Not that I desire - For my own sake, the very gift which I receive of you.
Php 4:17 Not because I desire a gift. This is not his motive for praising him, but he seeks fruit that may abound to your account. Their gifts will return to them in God's blessings.
