    King James Bible - 2 Corinthians 7:11

    For behold this selfsame thing, that ye sorrowed after a godly sort, what carefulness it wrought in you, yea, what clearing of yourselves, yea, what indignation, yea, what fear, yea, what vehement desire, yea, what zeal, yea, what revenge! In all things ye have approved yourselves to be clear in this matter.

    World English Bible

    For behold, this same thing, that you were made sorry in a godly way, what earnest care it worked in you. Yes, what defense, indignation, fear, longing, zeal, and vengeance! In everything you demonstrated yourselves to be pure in the matter.

    Douay-Rheims - 2 Corinthians 7:11

    For behold this selfsame thing, that you were made sorrowful according to God, how great carefulness it worketh in you; yea defence, yea indignation, yea fear, yea desire, yea zeal, yea revenge: in all things you have shewed yourselves to be undefiled in the matter.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    For behold this very thing, that ye sorrowed after a godly sort, what carefulness it wrought in you, yea, what clearing of yourselves, yea, what indignation, yea, what fear, yea, what vehement desire, yea, what zeal, yea, what avenging! In all things ye have approved yourselves to be
    clear in this matter.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 7:11

    Porque he aquí esto mismo, que segn Dios fuisteis contristados, ¿cunta solicitud ha obrado en vosotros? ¡Qu defensa, qu enojo, qu temor, qu (gran) deseo, qu celo, y qu vindicacin! En todo os habis mostrado limpios en el asunto.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Corinthians 7:11

    Verse 11. What carefulness it
    wrought in you] Carefulness of obeying my directions, ver. 15; yea, what clearing of yourselves from guilt by inflicting censures on the guilty person, and putting away evil from among you, 1 Cor. v. 13; yea, what indignation against him who had dishonoured his profession, and defiled the Church; yea, what fear of my displeasure, and the rod which I threatened, 1 Cor. iv. 21; yea, what vehement desire to rectify what was amiss in this matter, ver. 7; yea, what zeal for me; yea, what revenge in punishing the delinquent. See Whitby.

    In all things, &c.] In the whole of your conduct in this affair since ye have received my letter, ye have approved yourselves to be clear, agnouv; not only to be clear of contumacy and obstinate persistance in your former conduct, but to have done all in the compass of your power to rectify the abuses which had crept in among you. The Corinthians were not clear, i.e. innocent or void of blame in the fact, but they were clear of all blame in their endeavours to remove the evil.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 11. For behold, this selfsame thing, that ye sorrowed after a godly sort , etc..] The apostle proceeds to describe godly sorrow by its effects, which are so many evidences of the sincerity and genuineness of it; some of the things mentioned are peculiar to the case of the Corinthians, and others common to evangelical repentance in any: what carefulness it wrought in you ; to remove the incestuous person from communion with them, which they were very negligent of before; to sin no more after this sort; to keep up, for the future, a more strict and regular discipline in the church; to perform good works in general, and not to offend God: yea, what clearing of yourselves ; not by denying the fact, or lessening, or defending it; but by acknowledging their neglect, praying it might be overlooked, declaring that they were not partakers of the sin; nor did they approve of it, but disliked and abhorred it, and were highly pleased with the method the apostle advised to: yea, what indignation ; not against the person of the offender, but against his sin; and not his only but their own too, in not appearing against him, and taking notice of him sooner; and particularly that they should act in such a manner, as to deserve the just rebuke of the apostle: yea, what fear ; not of hell and damnation, as in wicked men and devils, who repent not; but of God, and of grieving his ministers; and lest the corruption should spread in the church, as the apostle had suggested, a little leaven leavens the whole lump; yea, what vehement desire ; of seeing the apostle; of giving him full satisfaction; of behaving in quite another manner for the time to come; and to be kept from evil, and to honour God by a becoming conversation: yea, what zeal ; for God and his glory; for restoring the discipline of the church: for the doctrines of the Gospel; for the ordinances of Christ's house; for the supporting the character of the apostle, and other ministers of the word, against the false apostles: yea, what revenge ; not of persons in a private way, vengeance belongs to God; but of all disobedience, particularly that of the unhappy criminal among them, which has shown in the punishment inflicted on him by many: in all things ye have approved yourselves to be clear in this matter ; of the incestuous person: it appeared plainly that they did not consent to, and approve of his sin; and though at first they were unconcerned about it, did not mourn over it as they ought, nor make such haste to deal with the offender as they should, yet having discovered true repentance for their sloth, negligence, and indulgence, they are acquitted, and stand, in the apostle's view of them, as if they had not offended.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 5-11 - There were fightings without, or continual contentions with, an opposition from
    Jews and Gentiles; and there were fears within, an great concern for such as had embraced the Christian faith. But God comforts those who are cast down. We should look above and beyond all means and instruments, to God, as the author of all the consolation an good we enjoy. Sorrow according to the will of God, tending to the glory of God, and wrought by the Spirit of God, renders the hear humble, contrite, submissive, disposed to mortify every sin, and to walk in newness of life. And this repentance is connected with savin faith in Christ, and an interest in his atonement. There is a grea difference between this sorrow of a godly sort, and the sorrow of the world. The happy fruits of true repentance are mentioned. Where the heart is changed, the life and actions will be changed. It wrough indignation at sin, at themselves, at the tempter and his instruments It wrought a fear of watchfulness, and a cautious fear of sin. I wrought desire to be reconciled with God. It wrought zeal for duty, an against sin. It wrought revenge against sin and their own folly, by endeavours to make satisfaction for injuries done thereby. Dee humility before God, hatred of all sin, with faith in Christ, a ne heart and a new life, make repentance unto salvation. May the Lor bestow it on every one of us.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    11. Sorrowed (luphqhnai). Rev., correctly, were made sorry. The verb is in the passive
    voice, and is so rendered by the A.V. in ver. 9, but, inconsistently, sorrowed in the next clause.

    Carefulness (spoudhn). See on diligence, Rom. xii. 8. Rev., earnest care.

    Clearing of yourselves (apologian). See on 1 Pet. iii. 15. Exculpation or self-defense from complicity with the incestuous person by their neglect and refusal to humble themselves.

    Indignation (aganakthsin). Only here in the New Testament. Compare the kindred verb ajganaktew to be indignant, Matt. xx. 24; Mark x. 14, etc.

    Revenge (ekdikhsin). An unfortunate rendering, because of the personal feeling of vindictiveness which attaches to the popular usage. Rev. avenging is little, if any, better. It is rather meting out of justice; doing justice to all parties. See on Luke xviii. 3; xxi. 22. The word has, however, the sense of requital (see on Rom. xii. 19; compare 2 Thess. i. 8), and carries with it, etymologically, the sense of vindication, as Luke xviii. 7, 8. Bengel remarks that the six results of godly sorrow fall into pairs: clearing and indignation relating to the disgrace of the Church; fear and longing (vehement desire) to the apostle; zeal and avenging to the offender.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    7:11 { this selfsame thing} (auto touto). " this very thing," "the being made sorry according to God" (to kata qeon lupeqenai, articular first aorist passive infinitive with which auto touto agrees and the proleptic subject of the verb kateirgasato. {Earnest care} (spouden). Diligence, from speudw, to hasten. Cf. #Ro 12:11. {Yea} (alla). Not adversative use of alla, but copulative as is common (half dozen examples here). {Clearing of yourselves} (apologia). In the old notion of apologia (self-vindication, self-defence) as in #1Pe 3:15. {Indignation} (aganaktesin). Old word, only here in N.T. From aganakteo (#Mr 10:14, etc.). {Avenging} (ekdikesin). Late word from ekdikew, to avenge, to do justice (#Lu 18:5; 21:22), vindication from wrong as in #Lu 18:7, to secure punishment (#1Pe 2:14). {Pure} (hagnous). Kin to hagios (hazw, to reverence), immaculate.
