“For, when we were come into Macedonia, our flesh had no rest, but we were troubled on every side; without were fightings, within were fears.”
King James Version (KJV)
7:5 Our flesh - That is, we ourselves. Had no rest from without - From the heathens. Were fightings - Furious and cruel oppositions. From within - From our brethren. Were fears - Lest they should be seduced.
2Co 7:5 For when we had come into Macedonia. He first came from Ephesus to Troas (2Co 2:12) and expected to meet Titus there with word from Corinth concerning the effect of his first letter. Not meeting him, he went on to Macedonia in great distress of mind. Our flesh had no rest. Compare with this 2Co 2:13. Without [were] fightings. Conflicts with enemies of Christ. Within [were] fears. Lest the church at Corinth might make shipwreck.
