Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Philippians 4:15

_ _ Now — “Moreover.” Arrange as Greek, “Ye also know (as well as I do myself).”

_ _ in the beginning of the gospel — dating from the Philippian Christian era; at the first preaching of the Gospel at Philippi.

_ _ when I departed from Macedonia — (Acts 17:14). The Philippians had followed Paul with their bounty when he left Macedonia and came to Corinth. 2 Corinthians 11:8, 2 Corinthians 11:9 thus accords with the passage here, the dates assigned to the donation in both Epistles agreeing; namely, “in the beginning of the Gospel” here, and there, at the time of his first visit to Corinth [Paley, Horae Paulinae]. However, the supply meant here is not that which he received at Corinth, but the supply sent to him when “in Thessalonica, once and again” (Philippians 4:16), [Alford].

_ _ as concerning giving and receiving — In the account between us, “the giving” was all on your part; “the receiving” all on mine.

_ _ ye only — We are not to wait for others in a good work, saying, “I will do so, when others do it.” We must go forward, though alone.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Philippians 4:10-19.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Philippians 4:15

In the beginning of the gospel — When it was first preached at Philippi. In respect of giving — On your part. And receiving — On mine.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Philippians 4:15

(9) Now ye Philippians know also, that in the (n) beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only.

(9) He witnesses that he remembers also their former benefits, and again puts away sinister suspicion of greedy desire, in that that he received nothing from anyone else.

(n) At the beginning, when I preached the Gospel among you.
