2 Corinthians 1:22 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Sealed (σφραγισάμενος)

See on John 3:33; see on Revelation 22:10.

Earnest (ἀῥῤαβῶνα)

Only here, 2 Corinthians 5:5, and Ephesians 1:14. It means caution-money, deposited by a purchaser in pledge of full payment.

Of the Spirit

Not the foretaste or pledge of the Spirit, but the Spirit Himself in pledge of the fulfillment of the promises. By a common Greek usage the words are in apposition: the earnest which is the Spirit.
