    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:5

    Porque de la manera que abundan en nosotros las aflicciones del Cristo, así abunda tambin, por Cristo, nuestra consolacin.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Corinthians 1:5

    Verse 5. The sufferings of
    Christ] Suffering endured for the cause of Christ: such as persecutions, hardships, and privations of different kinds.

    Our consolation also aboundeth] We stood as well, as firmly, and as easily, in the heaviest trial, as in the lightest; because the consolation was always proportioned to the trial and difficulty. Hence we learn, that he who is upheld in a slight trial need not fear a great one; for if he be faithful, his consolation shall abound, as his sufferings abound. Is it not as easy for a man to lift one hundred pounds' weight, as it is for an infant to lift a few ounces? The proportion of strength destroys the comparative difficulty.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 5. For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us , etc..] By the sufferings of Christ are not meant those which he suffered in his own person for the sake, and in the room and stead of his people, the fruits and effects of which abound to them, and in them; but those which he suffers in his members, or which they suffer for his sake; and which are said to abound in them, because of the variety and greatness of them; though not as if they were more or greater than what Christ suffered in his soul and body, when he was made sin and a curse for his people: yet notwithstanding the abundance of them, such is the goodness and grace of God, that he proportions comforts to them; as their afflictions increase, so do their comforts; as their sufferings for the sake of Christ, and his Gospel, are more and greater, so , says he, our consolation aboundeth by Christ : meaning, either that consolation which they felt and enjoyed in their own souls, under all their tribulations, which abundantly answered to them, and which they ascribe to Christ, from and by whom it comes to them; or else that consolation, which, by preaching Christ, abounded to the relief of others who were in distress and trouble.

    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

    5. Sufferings of
    Christ. Not things suffered for Christ's sake, but Christ's own sufferings as they are shared by His disciples. See Matthew xx. 22; Philip. iii. 10; Col. i. 24; 1 Pet. iv. 13. Note the peculiar phrase abound (perisseuei) in us, by which Christ's sufferings are represented as overflowing upon His followers. See on Col. i. 24.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    1:5 {The sufferings of
    Christ} (ta paqemata tou cristou). Subjective genitive, Christ's own sufferings. {Abound unto us} (perisseuei eis hemas). Overflow unto us so that we suffer like sufferings and become fellow sufferers with Christ (#4:10f.; Ro 8:17; Php 3:10; Col 1:24). {Through Christ} (dia tou cristou). The overflow (perisseuei) of comfort comes also through Christ. Is Paul thinking of how some of the Jewish Christians in Corinth have become reconciled with him through Christ? Partnership with Christ in suffering brings partnership in glory also (#Ro 8:17; 1Pe 4:13).
