“For we write none other things unto you, than what ye read or acknowledge; and I trust ye shall acknowledge even to the end;”
King James Version (KJV)
1:11 You likewise - As well as other churches. Helping with us by prayer, that for the gift - Namely, my deliverance. Bestowed upon us by means of many persons - Praying for it, thanks may be given by many.
1:12 For I am the more emboldened to look for this, because I am conscious of my integrity; seeing this is our rejoicing - Even in the deepest adversity. The testimony of our conscience - Whatever others think of us. That in simplicity - Having one end in view, aiming singly at the glory of God. And godly sincerity - Without any tincture of guile, dissimulation, or disguise. Not with carnal wisdom, but by the grace of God - Not by natural, but divine, wisdom. We have had our conversation in the world - In the whole world; in every circumstance.
1:14 Ye have acknowledged us in part - Though not so fully as ye will do. That we are you rejoicing - That ye rejoice in having known us. As ye also are ours - As we also rejoice in the success of our labours among you; and we trust shall rejoice therein in the day of the Lord Jesus.
1:15 In this confidence - That is, being confident of this.
2Co 1:13 For we write none other things unto you. The charge seems to have been that he was ambiguous in what he wrote (2Co 1:17). Hence he insists that he writes plainly, and that they read, understand, and accept what he writes.
For we write none other things vnto you, then what you reade or acknowledge, and I trust you shall acknowledge euen to the end.
