You will be enriched (2 Cor. 9:11)

“You will be enriched

In every way

For your great generosity.

This will produce


To God

Through us.”

ἐν παντὶ πλουτιζόμενοι εἰς πᾶσαν ἁπλότητα, ἥτις κατεργάζεται δι’ ἡμῶν εὐχαριστίαν τῷ Θεῷ.

Paul said that you will be enriched in every way (ἐν παντὶ πλουτιζόμενοι) for your great generosity (εἰς πᾶσαν ἁπλότητα).  This will produce (ἥτις κατεργάζεται) thanksgiving to God (εὐχαριστίαν τῷ Θεῷ) through us (δι’ ἡμῶν).  Only the Pauline letters used this word πλουτιζόμενοι, that means to make rich, cause to abound in, or enrich, and the word ἁπλότητα, that means singleness, simplicity, sincerity, purity, or graciousness, as well as the word κατεργάζεται, that means to work out, effect by labor, achieve, or bring about.  Paul indicated that God would reward them for their great generosity.  God would recognize what they have done through Paul and his fellow workers.  Do you think that God will reward you for your generosity?
