Wesley's Notes on the Bible

6:11 From the praise of the Christian ministry, which he began 2Cor 2:14, he now draws his affectionate exhortation. O ye Corinthians - He seldom uses this appellation.

The words 'to perform the service' are, as the margin tells us, literally, to 'war the warfare.' Although it may be difficult to say why such very prosaic and homely work as carrying the materials of the Tabernacle and the sacrificial vessels was designated by such a term, the underlying suggestion is
