Robertson's Word Pictures (NT)
From all covetousness (apo pashv pleoneciav). Ablative case. From every kind of greedy desire for more (pleon, more, ecia, from exw, to have) an old word which we have robbed of its sinful aspects and refined to mean business thrift.
In the abundance of the things which he possesseth (en tw perisseuein tini ek twn uparxontwn autw). A rather awkward Lukan idiom: "In the abounding (articular infinitive) to one out of the things belonging (articular participle) to him."
