Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Corinthians 11:30

_ _ glory of ... infirmities — A striking contrast! Glorying or boasting of what others make matter of shame, namely, infirmities; for instance, his humbling mode of escape in a basket (2 Corinthians 11:33). A character utterly incompatible with that of an enthusiast (compare 2 Corinthians 12:5, 2 Corinthians 12:9, 2 Corinthians 12:10).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Corinthians 11:22-33.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Corinthians 11:30

I will glory of the things that concern my infirmities — Of what shows my weakness, rather than my strength.
