2 Corinthians 7:5

When we had come (eltontwn hmwn).
Genitive absolute with second aorist active participle of erxomai. Paul now returns to the incident mentioned in 2:12 before the long digression on the glory of the ministry.

Had no relief (oudemian esxhken anesin).
Perfect active indicative precisely as in 2:13 which see, "has had no relief" (dramatic perfect).

Afflicted (tlibomenoi).
Present passive participle of tlibw as in 4:8, but with anacoluthon, for the nominative case agrees not with the genitive hmwn nor with the accusative hmav in verse 6. It is used as if a principal verb as in 9:11; 11:6; Romans 12:16 (Moulton, Prolegomena, p. 182; Robertson, Grammar, pp. 1132-35).

Without were fightings (exwten maxai).
Asyndeton and no copula, a parenthesis also in structure. Perhaps pagan adversaries in Macedonia (cf. 1 Corinthians 15:32).

Within were fears (eswten poboi).
Same construction. "Mental perturbations" (Augustine) as in 11:28.
