    SEV Biblia, Chapter 13:8

    Porque ninguna cosa podemos contra la verdad, sino por la verdad.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Corinthians 13:8

    Verse 8. For we can do nothing against the
    truth, but for the truth.] As we are the apostles of God, we cannot bring to you any false doctrine; and, as we profess to be under the influence of God's Spirit, we cannot do any thing that is opposed to that truth, or which might be prejudicial to it.

    On the contrary, what we say and do is for that truth, to propagate and establish it. The Gospel of Jesus is truth; and my testimony concerning it is truth also. In my coming, and in my rod, you have nothing to fear, if you retain and abide in this truth.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 8. For we can do nothing against the truth , etc..] The apostles had no power, nor could they, nor did they desire to exercise any against such who received the truth of the Gospel in the love of it; who continued in it, walked in it, and held it fast; who worshipped God in Spirit and in truth, and who walked uprightly, and as became the truth; for as the law is not made for such persons, but the reverse, so the authority the apostles had received from Christ was not to be exercised upon such: but for the truth : for the sake of defending the truth against those that dropped, denied, and opposed it; and for the honour of it, by chastising, correcting, reproving, censuring, and punishing such, who either contradicted it, or caused it to be blasphemed and spoken evil of.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 7-10 - The most desirable thing we can ask of
    God, for ourselves and ou friends, is to be kept from sin, that we and they may not do evil. We have far more need to pray that we may not do evil, than that we ma not suffer evil. The apostle not only desired that they might be kep from sin, but also that they might grow in grace, and increase in holiness. We are earnestly to pray to God for those we caution, tha they may cease to do evil, and learn to do well; and we should be gla for others to be strong in the grace of Christ, though it may be the means of showing our own weakness. let us also pray that we may be enabled to make a proper use of all our talents.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    8. For we can do nothing against the
    truth. Your well doing is what we truly aim at. For, if we had any other aim, with a view to approving ourselves, we should fail, because we should be going in the face of the truth - the Gospel; and against that we are powerless. In that case we should be unapproved before God.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    13:8 {Against the
    truth} (kata tes aleqeias). He means in the long run. We can hinder and hold down the truth by evil deeds (#Ro 1:18), but in the end the truth wins.
