2 Corinthians 13

1:4 encourages (a-2) Parakaleo, as Matt. 2.18; 5.4; Acts 20.12; 1Thess. 3.7. I do not say 'comfort,' as that is rather conveyed in paramutheomai, so translated in 1Thess. 2.11; 5.14; 'console,' John 11.19,31; and 'consolation,' 1Cor. 14.3. The difference is slight, but here, as in Acts 20, there is the sense of 'cheered,' and this might replace 'encourage' and 'encouragement' if there were a suitable noun.13:1 matter (d-19) Rhema, 'utterance.' see Deut. 19.15. 13:3 Christ (e-7) I do not put 'the Christ' here, though there be the article, because it is specially connected with the speaking. 13:4 in (f-8) by (f-13) Ek, characterizing the principle on which it took place. 13:5 yourselves, (g-19) 'Yourselves' is ambiguous in English; but it is the accusative after 'recognize,' not 'yourselves know' but 'know yourselves.' 13:10 authority (h-21) Or 'power;' it is exousia, 'title,' not mere competency. see Note, Matt. 10.1. overthrowing. (i-34) See ch. 10.8. 13:11 rejoice; (k-5) Or 'farewell.' perfected; (l-7) As 'perfectly united,' 1Cor. 1.10. 13:14 communion (m-15) Or 'fellowship,' koinonia, as 1Cor. 1.9.
