2 Corinthians 12:14

Third time I am ready to come (triton touto etoimw ecw). Had he been already twice or only once? He had changed his plans once when he did not go ( Hebrews 1:15 ). He will not change his plans now. This looks as if he had only been once (that in Acts 18:1 ff.). Note the third use of katanarkaw ( Acts 11:9 ; Acts 12:13 Acts 12:14 ). They need not be apprehensive. He will be as financially independent of them as before. "I shall not sponge on you." Not yours, but you (ou ta umwn, alla uma). The motto of every real preacher. To lay up (qhsaurizein). For this use of the verb see 1 Corinthians 16:2 ( Matthew 6:19-21 ; James 5:3 ).
