Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 16:18

_ _ refreshed my spirit and yours — “yours” will be refreshed on receiving this letter, by knowing that “my spirit is refreshed” by their having come to me from you; and (perhaps) by the good report they gave of many of you (1 Corinthians 1:4-8); my refreshment of spirit redounds to yours, as being my disciples (2 Corinthians 7:13; compare Zechariah 6:8).

_ _ acknowledge — render them due acknowledgments by a kind reception of them: 1 Thessalonians 5:12, “know” them in their true worth and treat them accordingly.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 16:13-18.
