    Definitions for 2 Corinthians 11:11

    Wherefore - Why?; for what reason?; for what cause?

    Clarke's Commentary on 2 Corinthians 11:11

    Wherefore - Why have I acted thus? and why do I propose to continue to act thus? is it because I love you not, and will not permit you to contribute to my support? God knoweth the contrary; I do most affectionately love you.

    Barnes' Notes on 2 Corinthians 11:11

    Wherefore ... - It is not because I do not love you. It is not from pride, or because I would not as willingly receive aid from you as from any other. It is not because I am more unwilling to be under obligation to you than to others. I have a deep and tender attachment to you; but it is because I can thus best promote the gospel and advance the kingdom of the Redeemer. Possibly it might have been thought that his unwillingness to receive aid from them was some proof of reserve toward them or lack of affection, and this may have been urged against him. This he solemnly denies.

    Wesley's Notes on 2 Corinthians 11:11
