Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Corinthians 8:22

_ _ This second brother, Birks supposes to be Trophimus: for a Macedonian is not meant (2 Corinthians 9:4) probably the same as was sent before with Titus (2 Corinthians 12:18); and therefore sent from Ephesus, and probably an Ephesian: all this is true of Trophimus.

_ _ oftentimes ... in many things — Join and translate as in the Greek, “many times in many things.”

_ _ upon the great confidence which I have in you — “through the great confidence WHICH HE HAS towards you” [Alford]. Bengel better supports English Version, “We have sent ... through the confidence WHICH WE FEEL in regard to your liberality.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Corinthians 8:16-24.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Corinthians 8:22

With them — With Titus and Luke. Our brother — Perhaps Apollos.
