Explain what this expression "bowels of the saints are refreshed by thee" Phil 1:7
Bible Answer: Word study ... Splagchnon ...
Splagchnon (Strong's 4698) is the word fro bowels, and can mean spleen ... the bowels were regarded as the seat of the more violent passions, such as anger and love; but by the Hebrews as the seat of the tenderer affections, esp. kindness, benevolence, compassion; hence our heart (tender mercies, affections, etc.)
Below are some verses ... splagchnon is translated affection or heart in the NAS:

2Co 7:15 And his affection abounds all the more toward you, as he remembers the obedience of you all, how you received im with fear and trembling.

Phm 1:7 For I have come to have much joy and comfort in your love, because the heart s of the saints have been refreshed through you, brother.
Phm 1:12 And I have sent him back to you in person, that is, sending my very heart,
Phm 1:20 Yes, brother, let me benefit from you in the Lord; refresh my heart in Christ.
