and Footnotes:

According to Acts 19:21, Since the Lord the Spirit dwelt in (Paul’s) spirit (2 Tim. 4:22; Rom. 8:10-11), Paul must have purposed according to the leading of the Lord the Spirit.

The purpose was to carry out Paul’s loving concern for the need of the poor saints in (Jerusalem). Although he was an apostle set apart by God for the (Gentiles) (Acts 22:21; Gal. 2:8), Paul was still concerned for the Lord’s interest among the (Jews). His primary concern was for the (Body) of Christ universally, not merely for his part of the New Testament ministry among the Gentiles.(See Acts 19:21 note 2, note 1)
