NET © Notes

tn This Greek word translated “sufferings” here (πάθημα, paqhma) is a different one than the one Paul uses for his own afflictions/persecutions (θλῖψις, qliyi") in v. 4.

tn I.e., suffering incurred by Paul as a consequence of his relationship to Christ. The genitive could be considered to have a causative nuance here.

tn Traditionally, “abound” (here and throughout this section).

tn The words “to you” are not in the Greek text, but are implied by the statements in the following verse.
