Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Corinthians 12:13

_ _ wherein you were inferior — that is, were treated with less consideration by me than were other churches.

_ _ I myselfI made a gain of you neither myself, nor by those others whom I sent, Titus and others (2 Corinthians 12:17, 2 Corinthians 12:18).

_ _ wrong — His declining support from the Corinthians might be regarded as the denial to them of a privilege, and a mark of their spiritual inferiority, and of his looking on them with less confidence and love (compare 2 Corinthians 11:9, 2 Corinthians 11:11).
