Philippians 2:17 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
2:17 Here he begins to treat of the latter clause of Php 1:22. Yea, and if I be offered - Literally, If I be poured out.

I will gladly spend myself and all I have for you, even though it seems that the more I love you, the less you love me.
