    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:4

    el que nos consuela en todas nuestras tribulaciones, para que podamos tambin nosotros consolar a los que estn en cualquier angustia, con la consolacin con que nosotros somos consolados por Dios.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Corinthians 1:4

    Verse 4. Who comforteth us] Who shows himself to be the
    God of tender mercy, by condescending to notice us, who have never deserved any good at his hand; and also the God of all consolation, by comforting us in all our tribulation-never leaving us a prey to anxiety, carking care, persecution, or temptation; but, by the comforts of his Spirit, bearing us up in, through, and above, all our trials and difficulties.

    That we may be able to comfort them] Even spiritual comforts are not given us for our use alone; they, like all the gifts of God, are given that they may be distributed, or become the instruments of help to others. A minister's trials and comforts are permitted and sent for the benefit of the Church. What a miserable preacher must he be who has all his divinity by study and learning, and nothing by experience! If his soul have not gone through all the travail of regeneration, if his heart have not felt the love of God shed abroad in it by the Holy Ghost, he can neither instruct the ignorant nor comfort the distressed. See ver. 6.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 4. Who comforteth us in all our tribulation , etc..] The apostle in this verse gives a reason of the former thanksgiving, and at the same time confirms the above character of God, as the God of all comfort, by his own experience, and that of his fellow ministers; who, though they had been in great tribulation and affliction for the sake of Christ, and his Gospel, yet were not left destitute of divine help and support under their trials; but had much consolation and sweet refreshment administered to them by the presence of God with them, the application of his promises to them, the shedding abroad of his love in them, and the fellowship and communion they enjoyed with Father, Son, and Spirit. The end of this, or why God was pleased to comfort them in such a manner, was not so much on their own account; though it showed that they were loved, and not hated and rejected of God, but for the good of others: that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God ; many are the troubles and afflictions of the saints in this life, but it is the will of God that they should be comforted: and the persons he employs and makes use of in this way are his ministering servants, whose principal work and business it is to speak comfortably to the people of God; (see Isaiah 40:1,2), and that they may be able to do so, that they may be fitted and furnished for so good a work, they are blessed with a rich experience of divine consolation in themselves, under the various troubles and exercises they are attended with in the course of their ministry; and such persons are, of all others, the fittest, and indeed the only proper persons to speak a word in season to weary souls.

    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

    4. In all our
    tribulation - in any trouble (epi pash th qliyei hmwn - en pash qliyei). Note the nice use of the article: all our tribulation, collectively; any or every trouble, specifically. In is literally upon; the trouble forming the ground of the comfort. So in hope, Rom. iv. 18; v. 2. We ourselves are comforted. An illustration of the personal character which pervades this epistle. Paul had been oppressed with anxiety concerning the reception of his first epistle by the Corinthian Church, by the delay of tidings, and by his disappointment in meeting Titus. The tidings, when at last they did arrive, aroused his gratitude for the wholesome effect of his rebuke upon the Church, and his indignation at the aggressions of the Judaizing teachers. With these feelings mingled his anxiety to hasten, in the Corinthian Church, the contribution for the poor saints in Judaea. This second letter therefore bears the marks of the high tension of feeling which finds expression in frequent personal allusions, especially to his afflictions. 139

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    1:4 {In all our
    affliction} (epi pasei tei qliyei hemwn). qliyis is from qlibw, to press, old and common word, as tribulation is from Latin _tribulum_ (roller). See on Mt 13:21 and #1Th 1:6. The English affliction is Latin _afflictio_ from _ad-fligere_, to strike on. {That we may be able to comfort} (eis to dunasqai hemas parakalein). Purpose clause with eis and the articular infinitive with the accusative of general reference, a common idiom. Paul here gives the purpose of affliction in the preacher's life, in any Christian's life, to qualify him for ministry to others. Otherwise it will be professional and perfunctory. {Wherewith} (hes). Genitive case of the relative attracted to that of the antecedent paraklesews. The case of the relative here could have been either the accusative hen with the passive verb retained as in #Mr 10:38 or the instrumental hi. Either is perfectly good Greek (cf. #Eph 1:6; 4:1). Personal experience of God's comfort is necessary before we can pass it on to others.
