Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Corinthians 9:14

_ _ Translate, “Themselves also with prayer for you, longing after you on account of the exceeding grace of God (resting) upon you.” English Version is, however, good sense: They glorify God (2 Corinthians 9:13) by the experimental proof, etc., “and by their prayer for you.” But the Greek favors the former.
