Darby Bible Translation

2 Corinthians 4:1 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Seeing we have this ministry - The Gospel, of which he gave that noble account which we read in the preceding chapter.
We faint not - We meet with many tribulations, but are supported in and through all by the grace of the Gospel. Instead of ουκ εκκακουμεν, we faint not, ουκ εγκακουμεν, we act not wickedly, is the reading of ADFG, and some others. Wakefield thinks it the genuine reading; it certainly makes a very good sense with what goes before and what follows. If we follow this reading the whole verse may be read thus: Wherefore, as we have obtained mercy, or been graciously intrusted, ηλεηθημην, with this ministry, we do not act wickedly, but have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, etc.

Preaching (ii. ).
but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
You said, 'Woe to me! The LORD has added sorrow to my pain; I am worn out with groaning and find no rest.'
Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up.
