Definitions for 2-corinthians 10 :9

Clarke's Commentary on 2-corinthians 10 :9

That I may not seem, etc. - This is an elliptical sentence, and may be supplied thus: "I have not used this authority; nor will I add any more concerning this part of the subject, lest I should seem, as my adversary has insinuated, to wish to terrify you by my letters.

Barnes's Commentary on 2-corinthians 10 :9

That I may not seem ... - The meaning of this verse seems to be this. "I say that I might boast more of my power in order that I may not appear disposed to terrify you with my letters merely. I do not threaten more than I can perform. I have it in my power to execute all that I have threatened, and to strike an awe not only by my letters, but by the infliction of extraordinary miraculous punishments. And if I should boast that I had done this, and could do it again, I should have no reason to be ashamed. It would not be vain and empty boasting; not boasting which is not well-founded."

Wesley's Commentary on 2-corinthians 10 :9

10:9 I say this, that I may not seem to terrify you by letters - Threatening more than I can perform.
