Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Corinthians 11:29

_ _ I ... weak — in condescending sympathy with the weak (1 Corinthians 9:22). “Care generates sympathy, which causes the minister of Christ personally to enter into the feelings of all his people, as if he stood in their position, so as to accommodate himself to all” [Calvin].

_ _ offended — by some stumbling-block put in his way by others: the “weak” is most liable to be “offended.”

_ _ I burn not — The “I” in the Greek is emphatic, which it is not in the former clause, “I am not weak.” I not only enter into the feeling of the party offended, but I burn with indignation at the offender, I myself taking up his cause as my own. “Who meets with a stumbling-block and I am not disturbed even more than himself” [Neander].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Corinthians 11:22-33.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Corinthians 11:29

Who — So he had not only the care of the churches, but of every person therein. Is weak, and I am not weak — By sympathy, as well as by condescension. Who is offended — Hindered in, or turned out of, the good way. And I burn not — Being pained as though I had fire in my bosom.
