Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Corinthians 11:28

_ _ without — “Beside” trials falling on me externally, just recounted, there is “that which cometh upon me (literally, the impetuous concourse to me of business; properly, a crowd rising up against one again and again, and ready to bear him down), the care of all the churches” (including those not yet seen in the flesh, Colossians 2:1): an internal and more weighty anxiety. But the oldest manuscripts for “that which cometh,” read, “the pressure”: “the pressing care-taking” or “inspection that is upon me daily.” Alford translates, “Omitting what is BESIDES”; namely, those other trials besides those recounted. But the Vulgate, Estius, and Bengel, support English Version.

_ _ the care — The Greek implies, “my anxious solicitude for all the churches.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Corinthians 11:22-33.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Corinthians 11:28

Beside the things which are from without — Which I suffer on the account of others; namely, the care of all the churches — A more modest expression than if he had said, the care of the whole church. All — Even those I have not seen in the flesh. St. Peter himself could not have said this in so strong a sense.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Corinthians 11:28

(9) Beside those things that are without, that which cometh upon me daily, the care of all the churches.

(9) He further adds this in conclusion, that the Corinthians should be ashamed to despise him upon whose care almost all churches depended, as it was plainly seen by experience.
