No man's silver or gold or apparel (arguriou h crusiou h imatismou oudeno). Genitive case after epequmhsa. One of the slanders against Paul was that he was raising this collection, ostensibly for the poor, really for himself ( 2 Corinthians 12:17 ). He includes "apparel" because oriental wealth consisted largely in fine apparel (not old worn out clothes). See Genesis 24:53 ; 2 Kings 5:5 ; Psalms 45:13 ; Matthew 6:19 . Paul did not preach just for money.
