2 Corinthians 2:2

Who then? (kai ti?). For this use of kai see on Mark 10:26 ; John 9:36 . The kai accepts the condition (first class ei--lupw) and shows the paradox that follows. Lupew is old word from luph (sorrow) in causative sense, to make sorry. Maketh glad (euprainwn). Present active participle of old word from eu, well, and prhn, mind, to make joyful, causative idea like lupew.
