    SEV Biblia, Chapter 7:6

    Pero Dios, que consuela a los humildes, nos consol con la venida de Tito;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Corinthians 7:6

    Verse 6.
    Comforted us by the coming of Titus] Who brought him a most satisfactory account of the success of his epistle, and the good state of the Corinthian Church.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 6. Nevertheless,
    God that comforteth those that are cast down , etc..] Or humble ones: such as are humbled under the afflicting hand of God, and have low and mean apprehensions of themselves; these God looks unto, dwells with, revives their hearts, cheers their drooping spirits, and fills them with comforts; he has been used to do so with such persons; he has raised comfort to them; they may expect it, and the apostle experienced it; and which he refers to God as the author of it, as he had done in the beginning of this epistle, calling him the God of all comfort; he was the efficient cause, the means by which it was effected was the coming of Titus: comforted us by the coming of Titus ; to whom the apostle bore a very great affection, he being his son in a spiritual sense, a companion with him in his travels, and of great usefulness and service in the ministration of the Gospel; so that the very sight of him gave him pleasure; and the more, inasmuch as he had for some time longed to see him, that he might have some account from him of the affairs of this church.

    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

    6.
    God. The Rev. improves on the A.V. by putting God in its emphatic place at the end of the clause. "He that comforteth," etc. - "even God." Those that are cast down (touv tapeinouv). Rev., the lowly. See on Matt. xi. 68. Here the A.V. is more nearly true to the idea, which is that of depression through circumstances, rather than of lowliness of character. The neater rendering would be the downcast.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    7:6 {Cormforteth} (parakalwn). See on 1:3-7 for this word. {The lowly} (tous tapeinous). See on Mt 11:29. Literally, low on the
    ground in old sense (#Eze 17:24). Low in condition as here; #Jas 1:9. In #2Co 10:1 regarded as abject. In this sense in papyri. "Humility as a sovereign grace is the creation of Christianity" (Gladstone, _Life_, iii, p. 466). {By the coming} (en tei parousiai). Same use of parousia as in #1Co 16:7 which see. See also #2Co 7:7; 10:10.
