Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Corinthians 1:11

_ _ helping together by prayer for us — rather, “helping together on our behalf by your supplication”; the words “for us” in the Greek following “helping together,” not “prayer.”

_ _ that for the gift, etc. — literally, “That on the part of many persons the gift (literally, ‘gift of grace’; the mercy) bestowed upon us by means of (that is, through the prayers of) many may be offered thanks for (may have thanks offered for it) on our behalf.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Corinthians 1:7-11.
