2 Corinthians 13

I am coming; that I have formed the intention of coming.—In the mouth, &c.; Deut. 19:15. In a manner somewhat analogous, he was to bear his repeated testimony before them.

Of Christ speaking in me; of my claim to authority from Christ. Which; that is, Christ.

Through weakness; in his state of humiliation.

Reprobates; sinners guilty and condemned.

Not that we should, &c.; that is, not for that purpose.—As reprobates, so regarded.

Should use sharpness; should feel urged to reproach, you with even greater severity.
