Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Corinthians 6:18

_ _ Translate, “I will be to you in the relation of a Father, and ye shall be to me in the relation of sons and daughters.” This is a still more endearing relation than (2 Corinthians 6:16), “I will be their God, and they ... My people.” Compare the promise to Solomon (1 Chronicles 28:6; Isaiah 43:6; Revelation 21:3, Revelation 21:7; Jeremiah 31:1, Jeremiah 31:9).

_ _ Lord AlmightyThe Lord the Universal Ruler: nowhere else found but in Revelation. The greatness of the Promiser enhances the greatness of the promises.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Corinthians 6:11-18.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Corinthians 6:18

And ye shall be to me for sons and for daughters, saith the Lord Almighty — The promise made to Solomon, 1 Chronicles 28:6, is here applied to all believers; as the promise made particularly to Joshua is applied to them, Hebrews 13:5. Who can express the worth, who can conceive the dignity, of this divine adoption? Yet it belongs to all who believe the gospel, who have faith in Christ. They have access to the Almighty; such free and welcome access, as a beloved child to an indulgent father. To him they may fly for aid in every difficulty, and from him obtain a supply in all their wants. Isaiah 43:6.
