Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Corinthians 6:17

_ _ Quoted from Isaiah 52:11, with the freedom of one inspired, who gives variations sanctioned by the Holy Spirit.

_ _ be ye separate — “be separated” (Hosea 4:17).

_ _ touch not the unclean thing — rather, “anything unclean” (2 Corinthians 7:1; Micah 2:10). Touching is more polluting, as implying participation, than seeing.

_ _ receive you — The Greek implies, “to myself”; as persons heretofore out of doors, but now admitted within (2 Corinthians 5:1-10). With this accords the clause, “Come out from among them,” namely, so as to be received to me. So Ezekiel 20:41, “I will accept you”; and Zephaniah 3:19, “gather her that was driven out.” “The intercourse of believers with the world should resemble that of angels, who, when they have been sent a message from heaven, discharge their office with the utmost promptness, and joyfully fly back home to the presence of God” (1 Corinthians 7:31; 1 Corinthians 5:9, 1 Corinthians 5:10).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Corinthians 6:11-18.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Corinthians 6:17

Touch not the unclean person — Keep at the utmost distance from him. And I will receive you — Into my house and family. Isaiah 52:11; Zephaniah 3:19-20.
