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. They have brought you into bondage; they have taken of you; devoured you; exalted themselves against you, and ye have patiently suffered all this. It is plain that he refers here to the false apostle or teacher which they had among them. Copyright Statement These files are public domain.
Bibliography Clarke, Adam. It is an earnest entreaty that they would do what he had exhorted them to do in 2 Corinthians ; see the note on that verse.
From that he had digressed in the close of the last chapter. He here returns to the subject and asks an interest in their affections and their love. We have wronged no man - We have done injustice to no man. This is given as a reason why they should admit him to their full confidence and affection.
It is not improbable that he had been charged with injuring the incestuous person by the severe discipline which he had found it necessary to inflict on him; note, 1 Corinthians This charge would not improbably be brought against him by the false teachers in Corinth. But Paul here says, that whatever was the severity of the discipline, he was conscious of having done injury to no member of that church.
It is possible, however, that he does not here refer to any such charge, but that he says in general that he had done no injury, and that there was no reason why they should not receive him to their entire confidence. It argues great consciousness of integrity when a man who has spent a considerable time, as Paul had, with others, is able to say that he had wronged no man in any way.
Paul could not have made this solemn declaration unless he was certain he had lived a very blameless life; compare Acts We have corrupted no man - This means that he had corrupted no man in his morals, either by his precept or his example.
The idea is, here, that Paul had not by his precept or example made any man the worse. He had not corrupted his principles or his habits, or led him into sin. The idea is, that Paul had taken advantage of no circumstances to extort money from them, to overreach them, or to cheat them. It is the conviction of a man who was conscious that he had lived honestly, and who could appeal to them all as full proof that his life among them had been blameless.
Bibliography Barnes, Albert. Open your hearts to us: we wronged no man, we corrupted no man, we took advantage of no man. I say it not to condemn you: for I have said it before, that ye are in our hearts to die together and to live together. Great is my boldness of speech toward you, great is my glorying on your behalf: I am filled with comfort, I overflow with great joy in all our affliction.
Open your hearts to us There is an infinite pathos here. Paul was saying, "You find a place in your affections for those who do such things, can you not find also a place for me,"  who preached the gospel to you and by whose preaching you were saved? In our hearts to die together and to live together This was an affirmation of Paul's love in the idiom known to all times and peoples.
Ruth the Moabitess spoke her love to her mother-in-law, "Where thou lodgest, I will lodge Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried" Ruth , In the Odes , of Horace B. With thee I fain would die. But there is a very significant variation in Paul's use of that ancient idiom, for in Paul's words here, death is mentioned first and life later. Broomall was probably correct in his explanation that for the Christian "death must precede eternal life in glory.
Glorying, comfort and joy In 2 Corinthians , these words indicate that "There rushed upon Paul's memory the recollection of the good news that Titus had brought";  therefore, he poured out these moving words of appreciation, personal thanksgiving and joy.

Receive us , 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 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,.
There is one among you that has done wrong, and another among you that has suffered wrong, 2 Corinthians 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 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:.

Bibliography Wesley, John. Receive us; receive our instructions and admonitions. Bibliography Abbott, John S. Make room for us. Again he returns from a statement of doctrine to treat of what more especially concerns himself, but simply with this intention — that he may not lose his pains in admonishing the Corinthians.
Nay more, he closes the preceding admonition with the same statement, which he had made use of by way of preface. For what is meant by the expressions Receive us, or Make room for us? For as I lay myself out for your salvation with a fatherly zeal, it were unseemly that you should turn a deaf ear upon me. We have done injury to no man. He declares that there is no reason why they should have their minds alienated, inasmuch as he had not given them occasion of offense in any thing. Now he mentions three kinds of offenses, as to which he declares himself to be guiltless.
The first is, manifest hurt or injury. The second is, the corruption that springs from false doctrine. The third is, defrauding or cheating in worldly goods. These are three things by which, for the most part, pastors are wont to alienate the minds of the people from them — when they conduct themselves in an overbearing manner, and, making their authority their pretext, break forth into tyrannical cruelty or unreasonableness, — or when they draw aside from the right path those to whom they ought to have been guides, and infect them with the corruption of false doctrine, — or when they manifest an insatiable covetousness, by eagerly desiring what belongs to another.
Should any one wish to have it in shorter compass-the first is, fierceness and an abuse of power by excessive insolence the second, unfaithfulness in teaching.
