      1  He threatens severity, and the power of his apostleship,
        against obstinate sinners.
     5  And, advising them to a trial of their faith,
     7  and to a reformation of their sins before his coming,
    11  he concludes his epistle with a general exhortation and a
        prayer.

    CONC. REMARKS ON THE 2ND EPISTLE TO THE CORINTHIANS
    
    The most remarkable circumstance in this Epistle, observes Mr.
    Scott, is the confidence of the Apostle in the goodness of his
    cause, and in the power of God to bear him out in it.  Opposed
    as he then was by a powerful and sagacious party, whose
    authority, reputation, and interest were deeply concerned, and
    who were ready to seize on every thing that could discredit him,
    it is wonderful to hear him so firmly insist upon his
    apostolical authority, and so unreservedly appeal to the
    miraculous power which he has exercised and conferred at
    Corinth.  So far from shrinking from the contest, as afraid of
    some discovery being made, unfavorable to him and the common
    cause, he, with great modesty and meekness indeed, but with
    equal boldness and decision, expressly declares that his
    opposers and despisers were the ministers of Satan, and menaces
    them with miraculous judgments, when as many of their deluded
    hearers had been brought to repentance and re-established in the
    faith, as proper means could in a reasonable time effect.  It is
    inconceivable that a stronger internal testimony, not only of
    integrity, but of divine inspiration, can exist.  Had there been
    any thing of imposture among the Christians, it was next to
    impossible but such a conduct must have occasioned a disclosure
    of it.  Of the effects produced by this latter epistle we have
    no circumstantial account; for the journey which Said. Paul took
    to Corinth, after he had written it, is mentioned by Said. Luke
    only in a few words, (Ac. 2 20:2,3.)  We know, however, that Said.
    Paul was there after he had written this Epistle; that the
    contributions for the poor brethren at Jerusalem were brought to
    him from different parts to that city (Ro. 26 15:26;) and that,
    after remaining there several months, he sent salutations from
    some of the principal members of that church, by whom he must
    have been greatly respected, to the church of Rome (Ro. 22 16:22,
    23.)  From this time we hear no more of the false teacher and
    his party; and when Clement of Rome wrote his epistle to the
    Corinthians, Said. Paul was considered by them as a divine
    apostle, to whose authority he might appeal without fear of
    contradiction.  The false teacher, therefore, must either have
    been silenced by Said. Paul, by virtue of his apostolical powers,
    and by an act of severity which he had threatened, (2 Co 13:
    2, 3;) or this adversary of the apostle had, at that time,
    voluntarily quitted the place.  Whichever was the cause, the
    effect produced must operate as a confirmation of our faith, and
    as a proof of Said. Paul's divine mission.
