Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Corinthians 1:6

_ _ we ... afflicted ... for your consolation — exemplifying the communion of saints. Their hearts were, so to speak, mirrors reflecting the likenesses of each other (Philippians 2:26, Philippians 2:27) [Bengel]. Alike the afflictions and the consolations of the apostle tend, as in him so in them, as having communion with him, to their consolation (2 Corinthians 1:4; 2 Corinthians 4:15). The Greek for “afflicted” is the same as before, and ought to be translated, “Whether we be in tribulation.

_ _ which is effectual — literally, “worketh effectually.”

_ _ in the enduring, etc. — that is, in enabling you to endure “the same sufferings which we also suffer.” Here follows, in the oldest manuscripts (not as English Version in the beginning of 2 Corinthians 1:7), the clause, “And our hope is steadfast on your behalf.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Corinthians 1:3-6.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Corinthians 1:6

And whether we are afflicted, it is for your comfort and salvation — For your present comfort, your present and future salvation. Or whether we are comforted, it is for your comfort — That we may be the better able to comfort you. Which is effectual in the patient enduring the same sufferings which we also suffer — Through the efficacy of which you patiently endure the same kind of sufferings with us.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Corinthians 1:6

(4) And whether we be afflicted, [it is] for your consolation and salvation, which is (d) effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted, [it is] for your consolation and salvation.

(4) He denies that either his afflictions with which he was often afflicted, or the consolations which he received of God, may justly be despised, seeing that the Corinthians both ought and might take great occasion to be strengthened and encouraged by either of them.

(d) Although salvation is given to us freely, yet because there is a way appointed to us by which we must come to it, which is the race of an innocent and upright life which we must run, therefore we are said to work our salvation; (Philippians 2:12). And because it is God alone that of his free good will works all things in us, therefore is he said to work the salvation in us by that very same way by which we must pass to everlasting life, after we have once overcome all incumbrances.
