svii. EPISTLE. 2d Cor. viii. 9, 15. Brethren: For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that being rich, he became poor for your sakes ; tisat through his poverty you might be rich. And in this I give counsel : for this is profitable for you, who

have begun not only to do, but also to be willing the year before: Now, therefore, perform ye it also in deed; that, as your mind is forward to be willing, so it may be also to perform, out of that which you have. For if the will be forward, it is accepted, according to that which it hath, not according to that which it hath not. For I mean not that others should be cased, and you burdened: but by an equality. In this present time, let your abundance supply their want; that their abundance also inay supply your want, that there may be an equality, as it is written. He that had much, had nothing over: and he that bad little, had no want.
