Philippians 2:21 Parallel
Vincent's Word Studies

All (οἰ πάντες)

The all; that is, one and all. The expression, however, must have limitations, since it cannot include those spoken of in Philippians 1:14, Philippians 1:17. It probably means, all except Timothy, that he has at his disposal of those who would naturally be selected for such an office.
