2 Corinthians 6:10 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
As sorrowful - Considerate men supposing, from our persecuted state and laborious occupation, (often destitute of the necessaries of life; seldom enjoying its conveniences; and scarcely ever, its comforts), that we must be the most miserable of all men.
Yet alway rejoicing - Having the consolation of God's Spirit at all times, and a glorious prospect of a blessed immortality.
As poor - Destitute of all worldly good and secular interest,
Yet making many rich - By dispensing to them the treasures of salvation; making them rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom.
The Gospel, when faithfully preached, and fully received, betters the condition of the poor. It makes them sober; so they save what before they profusely and riotously spent. It makes them diligent; and thus they employ time to useful purposes which they before squandered away. They therefore both save and gain by religion; and these must lead to an increase of property. Therefore they are made rich; at least in comparison with that sinful, profligate state in which they were before they received the truth of the Gospel.
As having nothing - Being the most abject of the poor,
And yet possessing all things - That are really necessary to the preservation of our lives. For the wants under which we labor for a time are supplied again by a bountiful Providence. The man who possesses a contented spirit possesses all things; for he is satisfied with every dispensation of the providence of God; and "a contented mind is a continual feast."

Many besides the Psalmist have been envious at the foolish when seeing the prosperity of the wicked, and have been …

Introductory Note to the Epistles of Ignatius
One person pretends to be rich, yet has nothing; another pretends to be poor, yet has great wealth.
So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy.
Then Peter said, "Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk."
He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all--how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?

For in him you have been enriched in every way--with all kinds of speech and with all knowledge--
