Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Corinthians 1:4

_ _ us — idiomatic for me (1 Thessalonians 2:18).

_ _ that we may ... comfort them which are in any trouble — Translate, as the Greek is the same as before, “tribulation.” The apostle lived, not to himself, but to the Church; so, whatever graces God conferred on him, he considered granted not for himself alone, but that he might have the greater ability to help others [Calvin]. So participation in all the afflictions of man peculiarly qualified Jesus to be man’s comforter in all his various afflictions (Isaiah 50:4-6; Hebrews 4:15).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Corinthians 1:3-6.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Corinthians 1:4

Who comforteth us in all our affliction, that we may be able to comfort them who are in any affliction — He that has experienced one kind of affliction is able to comfort others in that affliction. He that has experienced all kinds of affliction is able to comfort them in all.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Corinthians 1:4

Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, (3) that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.

(3) The Lord comforts us to this end and purpose, that we may so much the more surely comfort others.
