Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Philippians 4:18

_ _ But — Though “the gift” is not what I chiefly “seek after” (Philippians 4:17), yet I am grateful for the gift, and hereby acknowledge it as ample for all my needs. Translate, “I have all” that I want, “and more than enough.” Literally, as English Version, “I abound” over and above my needs.

_ _ I am fullGreek, “I am filled full.”

_ _ the odour of a sweet smell — (See on Ephesians 5:2). The figure is drawn from the sweet-smelling incense which was burnt along with the sacrifices; their gift being in faith was not so much to Paul, as to God (Matthew 25:40), before whom it “came up for a memorial” (Acts 10:4), sweet-smelling in God’s presence (Genesis 8:21; Revelation 8:3, Revelation 8:4).

_ _ sacrifice acceptable — (Hebrews 13:16).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Philippians 4:10-19.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Philippians 4:18

An odour of a sweet smell — More pleasing to God than the sweetest perfumes to men.
