2 Corinthians 9:8 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Always - all - in everything

Nearly reproducing the play on the word all in the Greek.

Sufficiency (αὐτάρκειαν)

Only here and 1 Timothy 6:6. The kindred adjective αὐταρκης A.V., content, occurs Philippians 4:11 (see note). The word properly means self-sufficiency, and is one of those which show Paul's acquaintance with Stoicism, and the influence of its vocabulary upon his own. It expressed the Stoic conception of the wise man as being sufficient in himself, wanting nothing and possessing everything. Here, not in the sense of sufficiency of worldly goods, but of that moral quality, bound up with self-consecration and faith, which renders the new self in Christ independent of external circumstances.
