All Commentaries on 2 Corinthians 9:1 Go To 2 Corinthians 9
Cornelius a Lapide
SYNOPSIS OF THE CHAPTER
i. He proceeds to stimulate the Corinthians to almsgiving by motives of human shame and praise; he bids them not to be put to shame before the liberality of the Macedonians.
ii. He dwells (ver6) on the fruits of almsgiving, how it enriches those that give with good things, now and hereafter.
iii. He points (ver11) to the thanksgiving that flows from it to God, and the joy of the poor Christians, who are the recipients, and who will pray for their benefactors the Corinthians.
