    SEV Biblia, Chapter 7:2

    Admitidnos: a nadie hemos injuriado, a nadie hemos corrompido, a nadie hemos engaado.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Corinthians 7:2

    Verse 2. Receive us] cwrhsate hmav. This
    address is variously understood. Receive us into your affections-love us as we love you.

    Receive us as your apostles and teachers; we have given you full proof that God hath both sent and owned us. Receive, comprehend, what we now say to you, and carefully mark it.

    We have wronged no man] We have never acted contrary to the strictest justice.

    We have corrupted no man] With any false doctrine or pernicious opinion.

    We have defrauded no man.] Of any part of his property. But what have your false teachers done? They have beguiled you from the simplicity of the truth, and thus corrupted your minds. 2 Cor. xi. 3. They have brought you into bondage; they have taken of you; devoured you; axalted themselves against you, and ye have patiently suffered all this. chap. xi. 20. It is plain that he refers here to the false apostle or teacher which they had among them.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 2. Receive us , etc..] Into your affections, let us have a place in your hearts, as you have in ours: Gospel ministers ought to be received with love and respect, both into the hearts and houses of the saints; for he that receiveth you, says Christ, receiveth me, ( Matthew 10:40). Their doctrines are to be received in the love of them, and with faith and meekness; and this may be another part of the apostle's meaning here; receive the word and ministry of reconciliation, which we as the ambassadors of Christ bring, and the several exhortations we give in his name, particularly the last mentioned: next follow reasons, or arguments, engaging, them to comply with this request, we have wronged no man ; we have done no man any injury in his person, estate, or name. There is one among you that has done wrong, and another among you that has suffered wrong, ( 2 Corinthians 7:12) and we have given very faithful advice to the church how to behave in this affair; but, in so doing, we have neither wronged him nor you; and as not in this, so neither in any other case: if I or my fellow apostles have wronged you in anything, it is in not being burdensome to you for our maintenance, forgive me this wrong, ( 2 Corinthians 12:13) for in no other respect have we done you any: some understand this of any lordly power, or tyrannical domination they had exercised over them, denied by the apostle; we have not behaved in an insolent manner towards you, we have not lorded it over God's heritage, or claimed any dominion over your faith, or required any unreasonable obedience and submission from you: we have corrupted no man ; neither by our doctrines and principles, which are perfectly agreeable to the word of God, make for the good of souls, and tend to the glory of Christ; nor by our example, but have been careful to lead such lives and conversations as are becoming the Gospel of Christ, adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour, and are patterns to them that believe; nor have we corrupted by flatteries, or with bribes, any of the leading men among you, in order to gain their good will, and thereby respect and credit among others: we have defrauded no man , or coveted no man; no man's silver, gold, or apparel; we have not sought yours, but you; not to amass wealth to ourselves, but that we might be useful to your souls, for your spiritual good, and serviceable to the glory of Christ; we have not through covetousness made merchandise of you, with feigned words, as the false apostles have done, therefore receive us.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-4 - The
    promises of God are strong reasons for us to follow after holiness we must cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of flesh and spirit. I we hope in God as our Father, we must seek to be holy as he is holy and perfect as our Father in heaven. His grace, by the influences of his Spirit, alone can purify, but holiness should be the object of ou constant prayers. If the ministers of the gospel are though contemptible, there is danger lest the gospel itself be despised also and though ministers must flatter none, yet they must be gentle toward all. Ministers may look for esteem and favour, when they can safel appeal to the people, that they have corrupted no man by fals doctrines or flattering speeches; that they have defrauded no man; no sought to promote their own interests so as to hurt any. It wa affection to them made the apostle speak so freely to them, and cause him to glory of them, in all places, and upon all occasions.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    2. Receive (cwrhsate). From cwrov
    place or space. Primarily, to leave a space, make room for. See on containing, John ii. 6; viii. 37. The meaning here is make room for us. Rev., open your hearts to us, which is felicitous in view of the reference to ch. vi. 12. It is equivalent to saying enlarge your hearts to take us in, as our heart is enlarged (ch. vi. 11).

    Defrauded (epleonekthsamen). Used by Paul only. It adds the idea of wrong for the sake of gain, which is not necessarily implied in either of the other verbs.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    7:2 {Open your hearts to us} (cwresate hemas). Old verb (from cwros, place), to leave a space, to make a space for, and transitive here as in #Mt 19:11. He wishes no further stenocwria, tightness of heart, in them (#6:12). "Make room for us in your hearts." He makes this plea to all, even the stubborn minority. {We wronged no man} (oudena edikesamen). A thing that every preacher ought to be able to say. Cf. #4:2; 1Th 2:3; Ac 20:26f. {We corrupted no man} (oudena efqeiramen). We ruined no one. "It may refer to money, or morals, or doctrine" (Plummer). He is answering the Judaizers. {We took advantage of no man} (oudena epleonektesamen). That charge was made in Thessalonica (#1Th 4:6) which see for this late verb and also on 2Co 2:11. He got the best of (note pleon more in the root) no one in any evil way.
