Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Corinthians 10:6

_ _ Translate, “Having ourselves (that is, being) in readiness to exact punishment for all disobedience,” etc. We have this in store for the disobedient: it will be brought into action in due time.

_ _ when your obedience, etc. — He charitably assumes that most of the Corinthian Church will act obediently; therefore he says “YOUR obedience.” But perhaps some will act otherwise; in order, therefore, to give all an opportunity of joining the obedient, he will not prematurely exact punishment, but wait until the full number of those gathered out to Christ has been “completed,” and the remainder have been proved incorrigible. He had acted already so at Corinth (Acts 18:6-11; compare Exodus 32:34; Matthew 13:28-30).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Corinthians 10:1-6.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Corinthians 10:6

Being in readiness to avenge all disobedience — Not only by spiritual censure, but miraculous punishments. When your obedience is fulfilled — When the sound part of you have given proof of your obedience, so that I am in no danger of punishing the innocent with the guilty.
