New Defender's Study Bible Notes

9:8 all grace. God promises an abundance of “all grace” to those who learn the grace of giving and exercise it “cheerfully” (the Greek word in II Corinthians 9:7 is that from which we derive our word “hilarious”). Note the frequent use of superlatives in this verse—“all grace,” “always,” “all sufficiency,” “all things,” “every good work,” with “abound” occurring twice.

9:9 it is written. This testimony is found in Psalm 112:9, where it is describing “the man that feareth the LORD, that delighteth greatly in His commandments” (Psalm 112:1).
