2 that in a great ordeal of affliction their abundance of joy and their deep poverty overflowed in the 1wealth of their liberality.
3 For I testify that 2according to their ability, and beyond their ability, they gave of their own accord,
4 begging us with much urging for the 3favor of participation in the 4support of the saints,
5 and this, not as we had expected, but they first 5gave themselves to the Lord and to us by 6the will of God.
