13 For whether we are beside ourselves, [it is] to God; or are sober, [it is] for you.

References for 2 Corinthians 5:13

    • i 5:13 - Or 'for God;' that is, he was as a fool for God's glory. But the sense is, I think, 'If he lost the blessed calculations of love which was his path towards men, it was to be out of himself with God, and for God:' a blessed alternative. His ecstasy was not excitement or folly, but if out of himself it was with God; if sober, it was the calculation of love for their good.
