2 Corinthians 2 - Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary on the Bible

Reasons for the apostle not coming to Corinth.

The apostle desired to have a cheerful meeting with them; and he had written in confidence of their doing what was to their benefit and his comfort; and that therefore they would be glad to remove every cause of disquiet from him. We should always give pain unwillingly, even when duty requires that it must be given. (2Co 2:5-11)
