    VERSE (13) -
    2Co 7:5,6

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:13

    no tuve reposo en mi espíritu, por no haber hallado a Tito, mi hermano; y así, despidindome de ellos, partí para Macedonia.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Corinthians 2:13

    Verse 13. I had no
    rest in my spirit] I was so concerned for you, through the love I bear you, that I was greatly distressed because I did not find Titus returned to give me an account of your state.

    But taking my leave of them] I went thence into Macedonia, expecting to find him there; and thither he did come; and gave me a joyous account of your state. See chap. viii. 6, 7.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 13. I had no rest in my spirit , etc..] Though there was such a door opened to preach the Gospel, and such an opportunity of doing good, yet he was greatly distressed in his mind; very restless and uneasy in his spirit, and could not be satisfied to stay; which shows, that though he was so great a man, he was but a man, and of like passions with others: and the occasion of this dissatisfaction and uneasiness was, because , says he, I found not Titus my brother ; whom he so styles, not merely because he was a fellow Christian, but because he was a fellow labourer in the Gospel; and by calling him so, puts an honour upon him, and expresses his affliction for him: now not finding him as he expected, he grew uneasy: not that he wanted him as an interpreter for him, or his assistance in preaching the Gospel at Troas, where so many were inclined to hear the word; but because he was exceedingly desirous of knowing from him the state of affairs in the church at Corinth; so that this whole account is given, to show his affectionate concern for, and care of that church: which he goes on with, saying, but taking my leave of them ; the disciples at Troas, and ordering and prescribing, as the word here used signifies, how things should be managed for the best after his departure; for as there was a door opened for the ministry of the word, it cannot be thought he would leave it thus, without fixing proper persons to go on with the work, and proper directions how to conduct themselves; and very likely he ordained Carpus to be their elder, bishop, or overseer: and having done this, he went into Macedonia ; in quest of Titus, whom he so earnestly desired to see, and by whose coming to him he was greatly refreshed and comforted; (see 2 Corinthians 7:5-7).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 12-17 - A
    believer's triumphs are all in Christ. To him be the praise and glor of all, while the success of the gospel is a good reason for Christian's joy and rejoicing. In ancient triumphs, abundance of perfumes and sweet odours were used; so the name and salvation of Jesus, as ointment poured out, was a sweet savour diffused in ever place. Unto some, the gospel is a savour of death unto death. The reject it to their ruin. Unto others, the gospel is a savour of lif unto life: as it quickened them at first when they were dead in trespasses and sins, so it makes them more lively, and will end in eternal life. Observe the awful impressions this matter made upon the apostle, and should also make upon us. The work is great, and of ourselves we have no strength at all; all our sufficiency is of God But what we do in religion, unless it is done in sincerity, as in the sight of God, is not of God, does not come from him, and will not reac to him. May we carefully watch ourselves in this matter; and seek the testimony of our consciences, under the teaching of the Holy Spirit that as of sincerity, so speak we in Christ and of Christ __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    13.
    Rest (anesin). Rev., relief. See on liberty, Acts xxiv. 23.

    Taking my leave (apotaxamenov). The verb means, primarily, to set apart or separate; hence to separate one's self, withdraw, and so to take leave of. The A.V. gives this sense in every case, except Mark vi. 46, where it wrongly renders sent away. See Luke ix. 61; Acts xviii. 18, 21. Ignatins, ajpotaxamenov tw biw having bid farewell to the life, that is, this lower life (Epistle to Philadelphia, 11.).


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    2:13 {I had no relief} (ouk esceka anesin). Perfect active indicative like that in #1:9, vivid dramatic recital, not to be treated as "for" the aorist (Robertson, _Grammar_, p. 896, 898ff.). He still feels the shadow of that restlessness. anesis, from aniemi, to let up, to hold back, is old word for relaxing or release (#Ac 24:34). {For my spirit} (twi pneumati mou). Dative of interest. {Because I found not Titus} (twi me heurein me titon). Instrumental case of the articular infinitive with negative me and accusative of general reference me, "by the not finding Titus as to me." {Taking my leave of them} (apotaxamenos autois). First aorist middle participle of apotassw, old verb, to set apart, in middle in late Greek to separate oneself, to bid adieu to as in #Mr 6:46.
