2 Corinthians 9 KJV

2 For I know the forwardness of your mind, for which I boast of you to them of Macedonia, that Achaia was ready a year ago; and your zeal hath provoked very many.
3 Yet have I sent the brethren, lest our boasting of you should be in vain in this behalf; that, as I said , ye may be ready :
5 Therefore I thought it necessary to exhort the brethren, that they would go before unto you, and make up beforehand your bounty,a whereof ye had notice before , that the same might be ready *, as a matter of bounty, and not as of covetousness.
