m
Or "with liberality"; from "giving without hesitation," or "not avoiding to give on false excuses," it has come to mean "readily and liberally."

W. Kelly Translation

aor he that exhorteth, in exhortation; he that bestoweth, with simplicity; he that presideth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.

WK Translation Notes

+
a
simplicity: This in effect is "liberality." (Notes on Romans, xxv.)
presideth: To render ὀ πρ. in verse 8 "ruleth" [in the RV] is a deduction from the close meaning of "presideth," though perhaps allowable and true; as in verse 10 the word translated "preferring” means being the first, or leading the way in the honor paid to each other. (Bible Treasury 13:352)
