This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Do we begin again

Rev., are we beginning. As if anticipating, the taunt so often repeated, that he had no commendatory letters, and therefore was forced to commend himself by self-laudation and by dishonest means. See 2Co 4:2; 2Co 10:12. You will say, “You are beginning again the old strain of self-commendation as in the first epistle.” See 1 Corinthians in 1Co 9:15-21.

To commend (συνιστάναι)

See on Rom 3:5. Some others. Others is superfluous. The reference is to certain false teachers accredited by churches or by other well-known teachers.
