2 Corinthians 7:4 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

My boldness

Note the change for the first time to the first person singular.

Comfort

The Greek has the comfort, the article apparently pointing to the special comfort he had received through the coming of Titus (2 Corinthians 7:6).

I am exceeding joyful (ὑπερπερισσεύμαι τῇ χαρᾷ)

Lit., I superabound with the joy. Rev., I overflow with joy. Note the article again, the joy.
