    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:15

    ¶ Y con esta confianza quise primero venir a vosotros, para que tuvieseis una segunda gracia;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Corinthians 1:15

    Verse 15. And in this
    confidence] Under the conviction or persuasion that this is the case; that ye exult in us, as we do in you; I was minded] I had purposed to come to you before, as he had intimated, 1 Cor. xvi. 5; for he had intended to call on them in his way from Macedonia, but this purpose he did not fulfill; and he gives the reason, ver. 23.

    A second benefit] He had been with them once, and they had received an especial blessing in having the seed of life sown among them by the preaching of the Gospel; and he had purposed to visit them again that they might have a second blessing, in having that seed watered. Instead of carin, grace or benefit, several MSS. read caran joy, pleasure; but the word grace or benefit, seems to express the apostle's meaning best.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 15. And in this confidence I was minded , etc..] Being fully persuaded of your affection for me, as having been instrumental in the conversion of many of you, and of your esteem of me as a faithful and upright minister of the word, and of your being my rejoicing in the day of Christ, I was desirous, and had determined, and so promised, to come to you before ; when I sent my first epistle to you, or before now, or before I went into Macedonia; and what I now say was the sincere intention of my mind; I thought really to have done what I had such an inclination to: and my view in it was, that you might have a second benefit ; the meaning of which according to some is, first by his letter to them, and then by his presence with them; or as others, one benefit when he should pass by them to Macedonia, and a second, when he should return to them from thence, according to the following verse; or rather, as the first benefit which they received from him, and under his ministry, was their conversion, so this second benefit may design their edification, and establishment in the faith, their growth in grace, and improvement in spiritual knowledge.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 15-24 - The
    apostle clears himself from the charge of levity and inconstancy in not coming to Corinth. Good men should be careful to keep the reputation of sincerity and constancy; they should not resolve, but of careful thought; and they will not change unless for weighty reasons Nothing can render God's promises more certain: his giving them throug Christ, assures us they are his promises; as the wonders God wrought in the life, resurrection, and ascension of his Son, confirm faith. The Holy Spirit makes Christians firm in the faith of the gospel: the quickening of the Spirit is an earnest of everlasting life; and the comforts of the Spirit are an earnest of everlasting joy. The apostl desired to spare the blame he feared would be unavoidable, if he ha gone to Corinth before he learned what effect his former lette produced. Our strength and ability are owing to faith; and our comfor and joy must flow from faith. The holy tempers and gracious fruit which attend faith, secure from delusion in so important a matter __________________________________________________________________

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    1:15 {
    Confidence} (pepoiqesei). this late word (LXX Philo, Josephus) is condemned by the Atticists, but Paul uses it a half dozen times (#3:4 also). {I was minded to come} (eboulomen elqein). Imperfect, I was wishing to come, picturing his former state of mind. {Before unto you} (proteron pros humas). this was his former plan (proteron) while in Ephesus to go to Achaia directly from Ephesus. this he confesses in verse #16 "and by you to pass into Macedonia." {That ye might have a second benefit} (hina deuteran carin scete). Or second "joy" if we accept caran with Westcott and Hort. this would be a real second blessing (or joy) if they should have two visits from Paul.
