2 Corinthians 8:6 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Had begun (προενήρξατο)

Only here and 2 Corinthians 8:10. Rev., giving the force of πρό before, had made a beginning before: on his first visit to Corinth.

Complete - this grace also (ἐπιτελέσῃ καὶ τὴν χάριν ταύτην).

Should complete among you the act of love (χάριν), the contribution already begun, in addition to whatever else He has yet to complete among you (καὶ also).
