    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:10

    como doloridos, mas siempre gozosos; como pobres, pero enriqueciendo a muchos; como los que no tienen nada, mas que lo poseen todo.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Corinthians 6:10

    Verse 10. As sorrowful] Considerate
    men supposing, from our persecuted state and labourious occupation, (often destitute of the necessaries of life; seldom enjoying its conveniences; and scarcely ever, its comforts,) that we must be the most miserable of all men.

    Yet alway rejoicing] Having the consolation of God's Spirit at all times, and a glorious prospect of a blessed immortality.

    As poor] Destitute of all worldly good and secular interest, Yet making many rich] By dispensing to them the treasures of salvation; making them rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom.

    The Gospel, when faithfully preached, and fully received, betters the condition of the poor. It makes them sober; so they save what before they profusely and riotously spent. It makes them diligent; and thus they employ time to useful purposes which they before squandered away.

    They therefore both save and gain by religion; and these must lead to an increase of property. Therefore they are made rich; at least in comparison with that sinful, profligate state in which they were before they received the truth of the Gospel.

    As having nothing] Being the most abject of the poor, And yet possessing all things.] That are really necessary to the preservation of our lives. For the wants under which we labour for a time are supplied again by a bountiful Providence. The man who possesses a contented spirit possesses all things; for he is satisfied with every dispensation of the providence of God; and "a contented mind is a continual feast."


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 10. As sorrowful, yet always rejoicing , etc..] As to their outward appearance they are sorrowful , and oftentimes really so on account of sin, their own and others, by reason of afflictions, temporal and spiritual; and as to the state and condition of the church of Christ, and the interest of religion: and yet always rejoicing ; not in themselves, or in any creature, but in the Lord, in the person, blood, and righteousness of Christ, and salvation by him. As poor, yet making many rich. It is, generally speaking, the lot of Christ's ministers to be poor in this world; and there are some reasons for it, why it is, and should be so; as that they might be maintained by the people, which is the ordinance of God; that it might appear that Christ's kingdom is not of this world; that the faith of men might not stand in the riches of the world, but in the power of God; that ministers might not be above their work, nor neglect it, nor drop it; and that they might not be ensnared and encumbered with the things of life. And yet making many rich : are instruments in making many souls rich in things spiritual; by showing them their spiritual poverty, stripping them of what they trusted in, and valued themselves upon; directing them where true riches are, and furnishing them with spiritual knowledge, with the knowledge of things more worth than thousands of gold and silver. As having nothing, and yet possessing all things ; for the apostles left all for Christ, were sent out bare by him; what they had they gave away, and were very destitute of worldly enjoyments: and possessing all things; they had food and raiment, with which they were content, what was sufficient for them, and which they had in mercy, and with a blessing; and then they enjoyed all spiritual good things; they had not only a right unto them, but were possessed of them; they had all things pertaining to life and godliness; they had Christ, and all things with him, and therefore could say as Jacob did, that they had enough, yea, that they had all things.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-10 - The
    gospel is a word of grace sounding in our ears. The gospel day is day of salvation, the means of grace the means of salvation, the offer of the gospel the offers of salvation, and the present time the prope time to accept these offers. The morrow is none of ours: we know no what will be on the morrow, nor where we shall be. We now enjoy a da of grace; then let all be careful not to neglect it. Ministers of the gospel should look upon themselves as God's servants, and act in ever thing suitably to that character. The apostle did so, by much patienc in afflictions, by acting from good principles, and by due temper an behaviour. Believers, in this world, need the grace of God, to arm the against temptations, so as to bear the good report of men withou pride; and so as to bear their reproaches with patience. They have nothing in themselves, but possess all things in Christ. Of suc differences is a Christian's life made up, and through such a variet of conditions and reports, is our way to heaven; and we should be careful in all things to approve ourselves to God. The gospel, when faithfully preached, and fully received, betters the condition even of the poorest. They save what before they riotously spent, and diligentl employ their time to useful purposes. They save and gain by religion and thus are made rich, both for the world to come and for this, when compared with their sinful, profligate state, before they received the gospel.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    10. Having - possessing (econtev - katecontev). The contrast is twofold: between having and not having, and between
    temporary and permanent having, or having and keeping. Compare Luke viii. 15; 1 Corinthians xv. 2; 1 Thess. v. 21; Heb. iii. 6.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    6:10 {Always rejoicing} (aei cairontes). Even in
    sorrow (#11:9; 1Th 5:16; Ro 5:3-5; 9:2; Php 2:18,27; 3:1; 4:4,15). {Yet making many rich} (pollous de ploutizontes). Old word from ploutos (wealth), to enrich. Spiritual riches Paul has in mind as in #1Co 1:5 (cf. #Mt 5:37). {As having nothing and yet possessing all things} (hws meden econtes kai panta katecontes). Contrast between meden (nothing) and panta (all things, cf. #1Co 3:22) and ecw (to have) and katecw (to hold down, to hold fast). Play on words (simple and compound) as in #3:2; 4:8. Climax of Paul's panegyric on the Christian ministry. He now resumes the thread of the story broken off in #2:14.
