2 Corinthians 1:3 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Blessed be God - Let God have universal and eternal praise:

1. Because he is the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is the gift of his endless love to man, John 1:16.

2. Because he is the Father of mercies, ὁ Πατηρ των οικτιρμων, the source whence all mercy flows, whether it respect the body or the soul, time or eternity; the source of tender mercy; for so the word implies. See on Romans 12:1 (note). And,

3. Because he is the God of all comfort - the Fountain whence all consolation, happiness, and bliss flow to angels and to men.

Sometimes it is borne to us through the ministry of nature, and at other times through the ministry of human speech and kindness. But always, I think, it brings us the sense of a Presence, as though we

'Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.'--2 COR. i. 23. There are three strong metaphors in this and the preceding verse--'anointing,' 'sealing,' and 'giving the earnest'--all of which find their reality in the same divine act.

The 'earnest' consists of 'the Spirit in our hearts,' and the same explanation might have been appended to both
