"These words are brought in by Paul, as a plain argument to persuade the Phillipians, that he did not seek after great things in the world, and that he sought not theirs, but them: he did not pass for a great estate; he had better things to take up his heart withal. I do not speak (faith he) in respect of want, [For] whether I have or have not, my heart is fully satisfied, I have enough; I have learned in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content."
