Darby's Synopsis of the New Testament

2 Corinthians 6

Introduction

1:4 encourages (a-2) Parakaleo , as Matthew 2:18 ; Matthew 5:4 ; Acts 20:12 ; 1 Thessalonians 3:7 . I do not say 'comfort,' as that is rather conveyed in paramutheomai , so translated in 1 Thessalonians 2:11 ; 1 Thessalonians 5:14 ; 'console,' John 11:19 ,John 11:31 ; and 'consolation,' 1 Corinthians 14:3 . The difference is slight, but here, as in Acts 20:0 , there is the sense of 'cheered,' and this might replace 'encourage' and 'encouragement' if there were a suitable noun.

Verse 1

6:1 fellow-workmen, (h-3) See 1 Corinthians 3:9 . Here literally 'jointly labouring;' the connection is in the word 'beseech.'

Verse 2

6:2 salvation. (i-22) See Isaiah 49:8 .

Verse 4

6:4 endurance, (k-11) Or 'patience.'

Verse 9

6:9 known; (l-5) Or 'recognized,' as Matthew 7:16 .

Verse 10

6:10 grieved, (m-2) Or 'sorrowful.'

Verse 11

6:11 expanded. (a-11) I do not say 'enlarged,' because it would lead one to suppose that his heart had been narrow. He had been driven in, as it were, by their evil, and now opened out and expanded.

Verse 12

6:12 affections; (b-13) Lit. 'bowels.'

Verse 13

6:13 itself. (c-16) Lit. 'be ye also expanded.'

Verse 14

6:14 diversely (d-3) 'Unequally,' as in A.V., is a consequence, but not stated in the text, which says 'diversely,' referring to the Levitical law, which forbade different animals to be yoked together, Deuteronomy 22:10 .

Verse 16

6:16 temple (e-6) temple; (e-15) Naos . see 1 Corinthians 9:13 . said, (f-20) See Leviticus 26:11-12 .

Verse 17

6:17 Lord, (g-14) 'Lord' is a proper name, answering to Jehovah. God, who in the Old Testament took the name of Jehovah with Israel, and of Shaddai (Almighty) with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, takes the name of Father with us. unclean, (h-20) See Isaiah 52:11 .

Verse 18

6:18 Lord (g-22) 'Lord' is a proper name, answering to Jehovah. God, who in the Old Testament took the name of Jehovah with Israel, and of Shaddai (Almighty) with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, takes the name of Father with us.
