2 Corinthians 7Receive us; receive our instructions and admonitions.
The comfort and joy spoken of by the apostle in this verse, is that which resulted from the intelligence which Titus brought him, as explained in v. 6, 7.
Fightings; the encountering of opposition and hostility.
With a letter; with his first Epistle to them, which was filled with reproofs.—I did repent; I did regret the necessity of sending, such a communication.
Worketh—death,—worketh evil; that is, it is mere suffering, conducive to no good end.
Indignation; earnest disapprobation of the sins which the apostle had exposed.—Revenge. The words revenge and vengeance are often used, in the New Testament, in the sense of the execution of judgment. The apostle seems to refer particularly to their promptness in punishing the person whose case is the subject of consideration in 1 Cor. 5:
For his cause that suffered wrong. It is uncertain to whom Paul refers in this expression. It may be to himself, as injured by the reproach which the case brought indirectly upon him; or it may be to some individual at Corinth injured by the offence. The meaning is, that he was not governed by any personal considerations, but by regard for the general welfare of the church.
Your comfort; comfort in you, that is, in the intelligence which Titus brought respecting you.
