Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Corinthians 4:11

_ _ we which live — in the power of Christ’s “life” manifested in us, in our whole man body as well as spirit (Romans 8:10, Romans 8:11; see on 2 Corinthians 4:10; compare 2 Corinthians 5:15). Paul regards his preservation amidst so many exposures to “death,” by which Stephen and James were cut off, as a standing miracle (2 Corinthians 11:23).

_ _ delivered unto — not by chance; by the ordering of Providence, who shows “the excellency of His power” (2 Corinthians 4:7), in delivering unto DEATH His living saints, that He may manifest LIFE also in their dying flesh. “Flesh,” the very element of decay (not merely their “body”), is by Him made to manifest life.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Corinthians 4:8-18.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Corinthians 4:11

For we who yet live — Who are not yet killed for the testimony of Jesus. Are always delivered unto death — Are perpetually in the very jaws of destruction; which we willingly submit to, that we may "obtain a better resurrection."

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Corinthians 4:11

For we which (k) live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our (l) mortal flesh.

(k) Who live that life, that is, by the Spirit of Christ, among so many and so great miseries.

(l) Subject to that miserable condition.
