2 Corinthians 6:2

For—God's own promise is the ground of our exhortation.

he saithGod the Father saith to God the Son, and so to all believers who are regarded as one with Him.

heard thee—In the eternal purposes of my love I have hearkened to thy prayer for the salvation of thy people (compare John 17:9, John 17:15, John 17:20, John 17:24).

accepted . . . accepted—The Greek of the latter is more emphatic, "well-accepted." What was "an accepted time" in the prophecy (Isaiah 49:8, Hebrew, "in the season of grace") becomes "the well-accepted time" in the fulfilment (compare Psalms 69:13). As it is God's time of receiving sinners, receive ye His grace: accept (II Corinthians 6:1) the word of reconciliation in His accepted time.

in the day of salvation—"in a day of salvation" (Luke 4:18-19, Luke 4:21; Luke 19:42; Hebrews 3:7).
