1 Timothy 6:18

1 Timothy 6:18

That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate;

a. ASV:  That they do good, that they be rich in good works, that they be ready to distribute, willing to communicate;
b. YLT: To do good, to be rich in good works, to be ready to impart, willing to communicate,
d. Amplified Bible Classic: [Charge them] to do good, to be rich in good works, to be liberal and generous of heart, ready to share [with others],
1. “That they do good, that they be rich in good works…”

a. [That they] do good [Strong: 14 agathoergéō, ag-ath-er-gheh'-o; from G18 and G2041; to work good:—do good.]
b. [that they be] rich [Strong: 4147 [Strong: ploutéō, ploo-teh'-o; from G4148; to be (or become) wealthy (literally or figuratively):—be increased with goods, (be made, wax) rich.]
c. in [Strong: 1722 en, en; a primary preposition denoting (fixed) position (in place, time or state), and (by implication) instrumentality (medially or constructively), i.e. a relation of rest (intermediate between G1519 and G1537); "in," at, (up-)on, by, etc.:—about, after, against, + almost, × altogether, among, × as, at, before, between, (here-)by (+ all means), for (… sake of), + give self wholly to, (here-)in(-to, -wardly), × mightily, (because) of, (up-)on, (open-)ly, × outwardly, one, × quickly, × shortly, (speedi-)ly, × that, × there(-in, -on), through(-out), (un-)to(-ward), under, when, where(-with), while, with(-in). Often used in compounds, with substantially the same import; rarely with verbs of motion, and then not to indicate direction, except (elliptically) by a separate (and different) preposition.]
d. good [Strong: 2570 kalós, kal-os'; of uncertain affinity; properly, beautiful, but chiefly (figuratively) good (literally or morally), i.e. valuable or virtuous (for appearance or use, and thus distinguished from G18, which is properly intrinsic):—X better, fair, good(-ly), honest, meet, well, worthy.]
e. works [Strong: 2041 érgon, er'-gon; from a primary (but obsolete) ἔργω érgō (to work); toil (as an effort or occupation); by implication, an act:—deed, doing, labour, work.]
2.  “...ready to distribute, willing to communicate;”

a. [ready] to [Strong: 1511 eînai, i'-nahee; present infinitive from G1510; to exist:—am, was. come, is, ×lust after, × please well, there is, to be, was.]
b. distribute [Strong: 2130 eumetádotos, yoo-met-ad'-ot-os; from G2095 and a presumed derivative of G3330; good at imparting, i.e. liberal:—ready to distribute.]
c. willing to communicate [Strong: 2843 koinōnikós, koy-no-nee-kos'; from G2844; communicative, i.e. (pecuniarily) liberal:—willing to communicate.]
