Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Corinthians 1:5

_ _ sufferings — standing in contrast with “salvation” (2 Corinthians 1:6); as “tribulation” (distress of mind), with comfort or “consolation.”

_ _ of Christ — Compare Colossians 1:24. The sufferings endured, whether by Himself, or by His Church, with which He considers Himself identified (Matthew 25:40, Matthew 25:45; Acts 9:4; 1 John 4:17-21). Christ calls His people’s sufferings His own suffering: (1) because of the sympathy and mystical union between Him and us (Romans 8:17; 1 Corinthians 4:10); (2) They are borne for His sake; (3) They tend to His glory (Ephesians 4:1; 1 Peter 4:14, 1 Peter 4:16).

_ _ abound in usGreek, “abound unto us.” The order of the Greek following words is more forcible than in English Version, “Even so through Christ aboundeth also our comfort.” The sufferings (plural) are many; but the consolation (though singular) swallows up them all. Comfort preponderates in this Epistle above that in the first Epistle, as now by the effect of the latter most of the Corinthians had been much impressed.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Corinthians 1:3-6.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us — The sufferings endured on his account. So our comfort also aboundeth through Christ — The sufferings were many, the comfort one; and yet not only equal to, but overbalancing, them all.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Corinthians 1:5

For as the (c) sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.
