    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:11

    ayudndonos tambin vosotros, con oracin por nosotros, para que por el don hecho a nosotros por respeto de muchos, por muchos tambin sean dadas gracias por nosotros.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Corinthians 1:11

    Verse 11. Ye also helping together by prayer] Even an
    apostle felt the prayers of the Church of God necessary for his comfort and support.

    What innumerable blessings do the prayers of the followers of God draw down on those who are the objects of them! The gift bestowed-by the means of many persons] The blessings communicated by means of their prayers.

    Thanks may be given by many] When they who have prayed hear that their prayers are so particularly answered, then all that have prayed will feel themselves led to praise God for his gracious answers. Thus, the prayers of many obtain the gift; and the thanksgiving of many acknowledge the mercy.

    The gift, or carisma, which the apostle mentions, was his deliverance from the dangers and deaths to which he was exposed.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 11. You also helping together by prayer for us , etc..] Though the apostle ascribes their deliverance solely to God, as the author and efficient cause of it; yet he takes notice of the prayers of the saints for them, as helping causes or means of their obtaining it. It was a very laudable practice in the churches, and worthy of imitation, to pray for the ministers of the Gospel, and especially when under affliction and persecution; (see Acts 12:5), and the prayers of those righteous ones were heard by God, and often effectual for the deliverance of them, as they were in the present case: for by the means of many persons , who wrestled together in prayer with God, the gift of deliverance from so great a death, which the apostle looked upon as a wonderful mercy, carisma , a free grace gift, was bestowed upon them, which was granted for this end, that thanks may be given by many on our behalf ; which is but reasonable, and ought to be observed; for since many were concerned in asking for, and obtaining the mercy, they ought to join in thanksgiving for it: and the apostle's view in this is to stir them up to a joint acknowledgment of the deliverance with them, which better became them than to side with the false apostles in their charge against him.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-11 - We are encouraged to come boldly to the
    throne of grace, that we ma obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. The Lord is able to give peace to the troubled conscience, and to calm the ragin passions of the soul. These blessings are given by him, as the Fathe of his redeemed family. It is our Saviour who says, Let not your hear be troubled. All comforts come from God, and our sweetest comforts ar in him. He speaks peace to souls by granting the free remission of sins; and he comforts them by the enlivening influences of the Holy Spirit, and by the rich mercies of his grace. He is able to bind up the broken-hearted, to heal the most painful wounds, and also to give hop and joy under the heaviest sorrows. The favours God bestows on us, ar not only to make us cheerful, but also that we may be useful to others He sends comforts enough to support such as simply trust in and serv him. If we should be brought so low as to despair even of life, yet we may then trust God, who can bring back even from death. Their hope an trust were not in vain; nor shall any be ashamed who trust in the Lord Past experiences encourage faith and hope, and lay us under obligatio to trust in God for time to come. And it is our duty, not only to hel one another with prayer, but in praise and thanksgiving, and thereby to make suitable returns for benefits received. Thus both trials an mercies will end in good to ourselves and others.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    11. Persons (proswpwn).
    Face is the usual rendering of the word in the New Testament. Even when rendered person the usage is Hebraistic for face. See on Jas. ii. 1 There is no reason for abandoning that sense here. The expression is pictorial; that thanksgiving may be given from many faces; the cheerful countenances being an offering of thanks to God.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    1:11 {Ye also helping together on our behalf} (sunupourgountwn kai humwn huper hemwn). Genitive absolute with present
    active participle of late compound verb (sun and hupourgew for hupo and ergon). Paul relied on God and felt the need of the prayer of God's people. {By means of many} (ek pollwn proswpwn). proswpon means face (pros, oy). The word is common in all Greek. The papyri use it for face, appearance, person. It occurs twelve times in II Corinthians. It certainly means face in eight of them (#3:7,13,18; 8:24; 10:1,7; 11:20). In #5:12 it means outward appearance. It may mean face or person here, #2:10; 4:6. It is more pictorial to take it here as face "that out of many upturned faces" thanks may be given (hina--eucaristeqei first aorist passive subjunctive) for the gift to us by means of many (dia pollon). It is indeed a difficult sentence to understand.
