    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:6

    en castidad, en ciencia, en mansedumbre, en bondad, en el Espíritu Santo, en caridad no fingida;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Corinthians 6:6

    Verse 6. By pureness] en agnothti? In simplicity of intention, and
    purity of affection; together with that chastity and holiness of life which the Gospel enjoins.

    By knowledge] Of the Divine mysteries.

    By long-suffering] Under all provocations.

    By kindness] To our most virulent persecutors, and to all men.

    By the Holy Ghost] There are doubts among learned men whether the apostle here means that SPIRIT who is called the third person of the holy TRINITY; or some grace, disposition, or quality of the soul, which was thus denominated, as implying a spirit wholly purified, and fitted to be a habitation of God.

    Schoettgen quotes a passage from Rabbi Bechai, in which it appears to him to have this latter meaning: "Rabbi Pinchas, the son of Jair, said: Reflection leads to sedulity; sedulity to innocence; innocence to abstinence; abstinence to cleanness; cleanness to sanctity; sanctity to the fear of sin; fear of sin to humility; humility to piety; and piety to the Holy Spirit. Of these ten virtues five are external, or belong to the body; and five internal, or belonging to the soul; but all men prefer the tenth, which is dqh jwr ruach haktodesh, the Holy Spirit." Even allowing Rabbi Pinchas to be a person on whose judgment we could rely, and whose authority was decisive, there does not appear to me any reason why we should depart from the usual meaning of the term from any thing that is said here. It appears to me plain enough that the rabbi means the constant indwelling of the Holy Spirit; and St. Paul, in this place, may have the same thing in view, and with it the various gifts of the Holy Spirit by which he was enabled to work miracles.

    By love unfeigned] en agaph anupokritw? Love without hypocrisy; such as disposed us at all times to lay down our life for the brethren, and to spend and be spent for the glory of God and the good of mankind.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 6. By pureness , etc..] The apostle having observed how he, and other ministers of God, showed themselves to be such by patiently bearing everything that was afflictive and distressing to the outward man, proceeds to show how they approved themselves in other respects; and which more chiefly regard the inward man, the exercise of grace, and a spiritual behaviour: by pureness; of doctrine and conversation, chastity of body and mind, sincerity of heart, and integrity of life: by knowledge ; of the Scriptures of truth, the mysteries of grace; or by a prudent conduct, a walking in wisdom with caution and circumspection: by longsuffering : not easily provoked to wrath, but bearing with patience every indignity and affront: by kindness ; gentleness, sweetness of temper and manners, affability and courteousness: by the Holy Ghost ; influencing and assisting in the exercise of every grace, and the discharge of every duty, or by the gifts of the Holy Ghost, ordinary and extraordinary: by love unfeigned ; without dissimulation, being not in word only, but in deed and in truth towards the brethren, and to all men.

    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.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    6:6 {In
    love unfeigned} (en agapei anupokritwi). Late and rare word (a privative and hupokritos, from hupokrinomai) this is the only love that is worth while (#Ro 12:9).
