In the NT the word appears only in connection with the gift of money that Paul is trying to raise for the poor Christians in Jerusalem. The KJV refers to this as the Corinthians’ “bounty” (2 Cor 9:5 RSV “gift”). Paul says that God has enriched the Corinthians to “all bountifulness” (2 Cor 9:11 RSV “generosity”); and that those who sow sparingly will reap sparingly, while those who sow bountifully will also reap bountifully (2 Cor 9:6).
