We may share abundantly
In your boasting
In Christ Jesus
When I come to you again.”
ἵνα τὸ καύχημα ὑμῶν περισσεύῃ ἐν Χριστῷ Ἰησοῦ ἐν ἐμοὶ διὰ τῆς ἐμῆς παρουσίας πάλιν πρὸς ὑμᾶς
Paul said, “Thus, we may share abundantly (περισσεύῃ) in your boasting (ἵνα τὸ καύχημα ὑμῶν) in Christ Jesus (ἐν Χριστῷ Ἰησοῦ) with me (ἐν ἐμοὶ) when I come to you again (διὰ τῆς ἐμῆς παρουσίας πάλιν πρὸς ὑμᾶς).” Only the Pauline letters used this word καύχημα, that means a boast, boasting or a ground of boasting. Paul intended to visit the people of Philippi again. When he would come to visit them, they could share in their mutual boasting about Jesus Christ among them. This would be a happy time when they would all sing the praises of Jesus Christ. Do you wish to see other Christians to share your joyful faith?
