    Barnes' Notes on 2 Corinthians 12:3

    And I knew such a man - It is not uncommon to repeat a solemn affirmation in order that it may be made more emphatic. This is done here. Paul repeats the idea, that he was intimately acquainted with such a man, and that he did not know whether he was in the body or out of the body. All that was known to God.

    Wesley's Notes on 2 Corinthians 12:3

    12:3 Yea, I knew such a man - That at another time.
