    2Co 3:1; 5:12

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 12:19

    ¿O pensis an que nos excusamos con vosotros? Delante de Dios en Cristo hablamos; mas todo, muy amados, por vuestra edificacin.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Corinthians 12:19

    Verse 19. Think ye that we excuse ourselves] apologoumeqa; That we make an apology for our
    conduct; or, that I have sent Titus and that brother to you because I was ashamed or afraid to come myself? We speak before God in Christ] I have not done so; I speak the truth before God; he is judge whether I was actuated in this way by any sinister or unworthy motive.

    For your edifying.] Whatever I have done in this or any other way, I have done for your edifying; not for any emolument to myself or friends.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 19. Again, think you that we excuse ourselves to you? etc..] The apostle would not have the Corinthians imagine, that by what he had said once and again in this epistle, he meant to excuse himself from coming to them, for he really and sincerely intended it; or that by this long defence of himself against the false apostles, he designed so much an apology for himself, or that he used any feigned words, or artful methods, to exculpate himself from any charge against him, particularly that of covetousness just mentioned; for he had no view to cover himself by studied apologies, and set orations, and evade anything exhibited against him, and make himself look innocent when guilty; it was not with any such intention he had dwelt so long on this subject: we speak before God in Christ ; in all sincerity and uprightness of soul, without colour, guile, or deceit, calling God and Christ to witness the truth of what was said; the apostle spoke all he did, as in the presence of the omniscient God; and as one in Christ, and a preacher of his Gospel, that would not deliver an untruth knowingly, for the whole world: but we do all things, dearly beloved, for your edification ; it was not for himself so much, for his own credit, reputation, and glory, he did what he did; had this been the case, he would not have said the half part of what he had; but it was for their sake, out of love to them, that they might be built up and established in the faith of the Gospel, and not be carried away with the error of the wicked.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 11-21 - We owe it to good
    men, to stand up in the defence of their reputation and we are under special obligations to those from whom we have received benefit, especially spiritual benefit, to own them a instruments in God's hand of good to us. Here is an account of the apostle's behaviour and kind intentions; in which see the character of a faithful minister of the gospel. This was his great aim and design to do good. Here are noticed several sins commonly found amon professors of religion. Falls and misdeeds are humbling to a minister and God sometimes takes this way to humble those who might be tempte to be lifted up. These vast verses show to what excesses the fals teachers had drawn aside their deluded followers. How grievous it is that such evils should be found among professors of the gospel! Ye thus it is, and has been too often, and it was so even in the days of the apostles __________________________________________________________________

    12:19 {Ye think all this
    time} (palai dokeite). Progressive present indicative, "for a long time ye have been thinking." {We are excusing ourselves} (apologoumeqa). He is not just apologizing, but is in deadly earnest, as they will find out when he comes.
