    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:7

    para que, al contrario, vosotros ms bien lo perdonis y consolis, porque por ventura no sea el tal consumido con demasiada tristeza.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Corinthians 2:7

    Verse 7. Ye ought rather to
    forgive him] He had now suffered enough; for the punishment inflicted had answered the end for which it was inflicted; and there was some danger that, if this poor culprit were not restored to the bosom of the Church, his distress and anguish would destroy his life, or drive him to despair.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 7. So that contrariwise ye ought rather to
    forgive him , etc..] On the other hand, so far the apostle suggests they should be from inflicting any other punishment on him, or by any means adding to, and increasing what was inflicted, that they ought to forgive him his offence, by taking off the censure from him, which had been sufficient for the purpose, and had continued on him a sufficient time: and comfort him ; by restoring him to the communion of the church, and to an enjoyment of all the privileges and ordinances of the house of God: and this was necessary to be done, lest perhaps such an one should be swallowed up with over much sorrow : be overwhelmed with trouble, engulfed in despair, and so become unfit for the exercise of grace, and discharge of duty; to prevent therefore such dangerous and pernicious consequences, it is incumbent on the churches of Christ, as soon as ever they observe that censures have answered the end in bringing persons to a sense and acknowledgment of sin and amendment of life, to remove them, and restore such to fellowship.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 5-11 - The
    apostle desires them to receive the person who had done wrong again into their communion; for he was aware of his fault, and muc afflicted under his punishment. Even sorrow for sin should not unfi for other duties, and drive to despair. Not only was there danger las Satan should get advantage, by tempting the penitent to hard thought of God and religion, and so drive him to despair; but against the churches and the ministers of Christ, by bringing an evil report upo Christians as unforgiving; thus making divisions, and hindering the success of the ministry. In this, as in other things, wisdom is to be used, that the ministry may not be blamed for indulging sin on the on hand, or for too great severity towards sinners on the other hand Satan has many plans to deceive, and knows how to make a bad use of ou mistakes.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    7.
    Forgive (carisasqai). The idea of freeness (cariv, see on Luke i. 30) lies in the word forgive, which is forth-give.

    Overmuch sorrow (th perissotera luph). Rev. gives the force of the article, his sorrow. Overmuch, excessive, through the refusal of pardon.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    2:7 {So that on the contrary} (hwste tounantion). The natural result expressed by hwste and the infinitive. tounantion is by crasis for to enantion and accusative of general reference. {Rather} (mallon). Absent in some MSS. {Lest by any means} (me pws). Negative purpose. {Swallowed up} (katapoqei). First aorist passive subjunctive of katapinw, to drink down (#1Co 15:54). {With his overmuch sorrow} (tei perissoterai lupei). Instrumental case, "by the more abundant sorrow" (comparative of adjective perissos).
