(33) I have coveted no man's silver, or gold, or apparel.--Comp. the parallel of Samuel's appeal to the people (1Samuel 12:3). In each case there was a special reason for what might otherwise seem an uncalled-for boast. Samuel's sons had been guilty of corrupt practices, taking bribes and the like (1Samuel 8:3). Among the many calumnies against St. Paul, one was that he used his apostolic ministry "as a cloke of covetousness." (Comp. 2Corinthians 7:2; 2Corinthians 12:17-18; 1Thessalonians 2:5.) On "apparel," as constituting a large part of the personal estate of the East, see Notes on Matthew 6:19; James 5:2.

Verse 33. - Coveted for have coveted, A V. Apparel. One of the items of an Oriental's treasure for the purpose of gifts (2 Kings 5:5, 22, 23, 26; Genesis 45:22; Matthew 6:19, 2(1). St. Paul contrasts his own example in not seeking such gifts with the conduct of the false apostles who draw away disciples after them for gain (1 Timothy 6:5-10; Romans 16:17, 18; comp. 1 Corinthians 9.).
