8:12 For if the eagerness is present, the gift itself 1 is acceptable according to whatever one has, not according to what he does not have.
2 Korintus 8:19Konteks
8:19 In addition, 2 this brother 3 has also been chosen by the churches as our traveling companion as we administer this generous gift 4 to the glory of the Lord himself and to show our readiness to help. 5
[8:12] 1 tn The words “the gift itself” are not in the Greek text but are implied. Translators often supply an English phrase like “it is” (NASB) but in the context, Paul is clearly referring to the collection Titus was to oversee (2 Cor 8:4-7). Therefore there is no reason not to specify the referent (the gift) more narrowly for clarity.
