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

With myself (ἐμαυτῷ)

Rev., better, for myself. Paul, with affectionate tact, puts it as if he had taken this resolution for his own pleasure.

In heaviness (ἐν λύπῃ)

Meaning, apparently, the apostle's own sorrowful state of mind. This is wrong. He refers to the sorrow which his coming would bring to the Church. Compare to spare, 2 Corinthians 1:23. Rev., with sorrow.

Again

Referring to a former unrecorded visit.
