    Ec 6:9 *marg:

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:12

    No estis estrechos en nosotros, sino estis estrechos en vuestras propias entraas.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Corinthians 6:12

    Verse 12. Ye are not straitened in us] That is, Ye have not a narrow
    place in our affections: the metaphor here is taken from the case of a person pent up in a small or narrow place, where there is scarcely room to breathe.

    Ye are straitened in your own bowels.] I have not the same place in your affections which you have in mine. The bowels are used in Scripture to denote the most tender affections. See the note on Matt. ix. 36.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 12. Ye are not straitened in us , etc..] The meaning of which is, either you are not brought into straits and difficulties by us; we do not afflict and distress you, or fill you with anguish and trouble; but ye are straitened in your own bowels ; you are distressed by some among yourselves, who ought not to be with you, with whom you should have no fellowship and communion: or thus, you have room enough in our hearts, our hearts are so enlarged with love to you, that they are large enough to hold you all; an expression, setting forth the exceeding great love, and strong affection the apostle bore to the Corinthians; when, on the other hand, they had but very little love to him comparatively; he had a heart to hold them all without being straitened for room; and among all them they could scarce find room enough in their hearts and affections for him.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 11-18 - It is wrong for
    believers to join with the wicked and profane. The wor unbeliever applies to all destitute of true faith. True pastors wil caution their beloved children in the gospel, not to be unequall yoked. The fatal effects of neglecting Scripture precepts as to marriages clearly appear. Instead of a help meet, the union brings snare. Those whose cross it is to be unequally united, without their wilful fault, may expect consolation under it; but when believers ente into such unions, against the express warnings of God's word, they mus expect must distress. The caution also extends to common conversation We should not join in friendship and acquaintance with wicked men an unbelievers. Though we cannot wholly avoid seeing and hearing, an being with such, yet we should never choose them for friends. We mus not defile ourselves by converse with those who defile themselves with sin. Come out from the workers of iniquity, and separate from their vain and sinful pleasures and pursuits; from all conformity to the corruptions of this present evil world. If it be an envied privilege to be the son or daughter of an earthly prince, who can express the dignity and happiness of being sons and daughters of the Almighty __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    12. Not straitened in us. It is not that our
    hearts are too narrow to take you in. Straitened in antithesis with enlarged.

    In your own bowels (toiv oplagcnoiv umwn). See on 1 Pet. iii. 8; James v. 11. Rev., affections. It is your love that is contracted.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    6:12 {Ye are not straitened in us} (ou stenocwreisqe en hemin). The same figure as in verse #11. See on 4:8 for stenocwrew. There is no restraint in me (my heart). My adversaries may have caused some of you to tighten up your affections (splagcna for affection as in #Jas 5:11; 1Pe 3:8).
