    he came in our help

    Is it right to say "he came in our help" or what are the options, including also words like aid and rescue, if different? I understand that "to" is more widely used than "in" in all these examples, but if someone here can give more choices, I would be grateful.

    Hello Nacho

    He came in our help
    isn't correct. Try,


    • He came to our aid.
    • He came to our rescue.

    Re: he came in our help

    Thank you Soup. I thought of "he came to our rescue" but it sound as more of what he did, and then "he came to help" as less. So "he came to our aid" is the closest to the meaning I was looking for.
