    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:2

    Porque si yo os contristo, ¿quin ser luego el que me alegrar, sino aquel a quien yo contristare?

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Corinthians 2:2

    Verse 2. For if I make you sorry] Should he have come and used his apostolical
    authority, in inflicting punishment upon the transgressors, this would have been a common cause of distress. And though he might expect that the sound part of the Church would be a cause of consolation to him, yet as all would be overwhelmed with trouble at the punishment of the transgressors, he could not rejoice to see those whom he loved in distress.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 2. For if I make you sorry , etc..] That is, should he come among them, and be the means of
    fresh grief and sorrow: who is he then that maketh me glad ? such was his love and affection for them, and sympathy with them, that should they be grieved, he should grieve also; they were the only persons he could take any delight in at Corinth; wherefore should they be in heaviness, he would be so too, and then what pleasure would he have in being among them? since not a man of them would be in a condition and capacity to make him cheerful: but the same which is made sorry by me . The Ethiopic version without any authority reads this clause, except he whom I have made glad; but the apostle is to be understood either of some particular man, the incestuous person, who had been made sorry, by that awful punishment of being delivered up to Satan, inflicted on him; or else the singular number being put for the plural collectively, is to be understood of all the members of the church at Corinth, who had been greatly grieved by the sharp reproofs he had given them; and therefore unless this trouble was removed, he could not expect to have much comfort and pleasure with them.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-4 - The
    apostle desired to have a cheerful meeting with them; and he ha written in confidence of their doing what was to their benefit and his comfort; and that therefore they would be glad to remove every cause of disquiet from him. We should always give pain unwillingly, even when duty requires that it must be given.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    2. If I make, etc. I is emphatic, implying that there are enough others who caused them
    trouble.

    Who then is he, etc. The thought underlying the passage, i. 24-ii. 1-3, is that the apostle's own joy is bound up with the spiritual prosperity of the Church. Compare Philip. iv. 1. As the helper of their joy he would receive joy through their faith and obedience. So long as their moral condition compelled him to come, bringing rebuke and pain, they could not be a source of joy to him. If I must needs make you sorry with merited rebuke, who can give me joy save you who are thus made sorry?


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    2:2 {Who qen?} (kai tis?). For this use of kai see on Mr 10:26; Joh 9:36. The kai accepts the condition (first class ei--lup") and shows the paradox that follows. lupew is old word from lupe (sorrow) in causative sense, to make sorry. {Maketh glad} (eufrainwn). Present active participle of old word from eu, well, and fren, mind, to make joyful, causative idea like lupew.
