1 G3972 Paul, G652 an apostle G5547 of Christ G2424 Jesus G1223 through G2307 the will G2316 of God, G2532 and G5095 Timothy G80 our brother, G1577 unto the church G2316 of God G5607 which is G1722 at G2882 Corinth, G4862 with G3956 all G40 the saints G5607 that are G1722 in G3650 the whole G882 of Achaia:
2 G5485 Grace G5213 to you G2532 and G1515 peace G575 from G2316 God G2257 our G3962 Father G2532 and G2962 the Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ.
3 G2128 Blessed G2316 be the God G2532 and G3962 Father G2257 of our G2962 Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ, G3962 the Father G3628 of mercies G2532 and G2316 God G3956 of all G3874 comfort;
4 G3588 who G3870 comforteth G2248 us G1909 in G3956 all G2257 our G2347 affliction, G2248 that we G1410 may be able G1519 to G3870 comfort G3588 them G3739 that are G1722 in G3956 any G2347 affliction, G1223 through G3874 the comfort wherewith G846 we ourselves G3870 are comforted G5259 of G2316 God.
5 G3754 For G2531 as G3804 the sufferings G5547 of Christ G4052 abound G1519 unto G2248 us, G3779 even so G2257 our G3874 comfort G2532 also G4052 aboundeth G1223 through G5547 Christ.
6 G1161 But G1535 whether G2346 we are afflicted, G5228 it is for G5216 your G3874 comfort G2532 and G4991 salvation; G1535 or whether G3870 we are comforted, G5228 it is for G5216 your G3874 comfort, G3739 which G1754 worketh G5281 in the patient enduring G846 of the same G3804 sufferings G3739 which G2249 we G2532 also G3958 suffer:
7 G1492 and our hope for you is stedfast; knowing G3754 that, G5618 as G2075 ye are G2844 partakers G3804 of the sufferings, G3779 so G2532 also G3874 are ye of the comfort.
8 G1063 For G2309 we would G3756 not G50 have G5209 you G50 ignorant, G80 brethren, G5228 concerning G2257 our G2347 affliction G1096 which befell G2254 us G1722 in G773 Asia, G3754 that G916 we were weighed G2596 down G5236 exceedingly, G5228 beyond G1411 our power, G5620 insomuch that G2248 we G1820 despaired G2532 even G2198 of life:
9 G235 yea, G846 we G2192 ourselves have had G610 the sentence G2288 of death G1722 within G1438 ourselves, G2443 that G5600 we should G3361 not G3982 trust G1909 in G1438 ourselves, G235 but G1909 in G2316 God G3588 who G1453 raiseth G3498 the dead:
10 G3739 who G4506 delivered G2248 us G1537 out G5082 of so great G2288 a death, G2532 and G4506 will deliver: G1519 on G3739 whom G1679 we have set our hope G3754 that G4506 he will G2532 also G2089 still G4506 deliver us;
11 G5216 ye G2532 also G4943 helping together G2257 on our G5228 behalf G1162 by your supplication; G2443 that, G5486 for the gift G1519 bestowed upon G2248 us G1537 by means of G4183 many, G2168 thanks may be given G1223 by G4183 many G4383 persons G5228 on G2257 our behalf.
12 G1063 For G2257 our G2746 glorifying G2076 is G3778 this, G3142 the testimony G2257 of our G4893 conscience, G3754 that G1722 in G572 holiness G2532 and G1505 sincerity G2316 of God, G3756 not G1722 in G4559 fleshly G4678 wisdom G235 but G1722 in G5485 the grace G2316 of God, G390 we behaved G1722 ourselves in G2889 the world, G1161 and G4056 more abundantly G4314 to G5209 you-ward.
13 G1063 For G1125 we write G3756 no G243 other things G5213 unto you, G235 than G2228 G3739 what G314 ye read G2228 or G2532 even G1921 acknowledge, G1161 and G1679 I hope G3754 G1921 ye will acknowledge G2532 G2193 unto G5056 the end:
14 G2531 as G2532 also G1921 ye did acknowledge G2248 us G575 in G3313 part, G3754 that G2070 we are G5216 your G2745 glorying, G2509 even as G5210 ye G2532 also G2257 are ours, G1722 in G2250 the day G2962 of our Lord G2424 Jesus.
15 G2532 And G3778 in this G4006 confidence G1014 I was minded G2064 to come G4386 first G4314 unto G5209 you, G2443 that G2192 ye might have G1208 a second G5485 benefit;
16 G2532 and G1223 by G5216 you G1330 to pass G1519 into G3109 Macedonia, G2532 and G3825 again G575 from G3109 Macedonia G2064 to come G4314 unto G5209 you, G2532 and G575 of G5216 you G4311 to be set forward on my journey G1519 unto G2449 Judaea.
17 G3767 When I therefore G1011 was G5124 thus G1011 minded, G5100 did G687 G5530 I show G1644 fickleness? G2228 or G3739 the things G1011 that I purpose, G1011 do I purpose G2596 according to G4561 the flesh, G2443 that G3844 with G1698 me G5600 there should be G3483 the yea G3483 yea G2532 and G3756 the nay G3756 nay?
18 G1161 But G2316 as God G3754 is faithful, G2257 our G3056 word G4314 toward G5209 you G1096 is G3756 not G3483 yea G2532 and G3756 nay.
19 G1063 For G5207 the Son G2316 of God, G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ, G3588 who G2784 was preached G1722 among G5213 you G1223 by G2257 us, G1223 even by G1700 me G2532 and G4610 Silvanus G2532 and G5095 Timothy, G1096 was G3756 not G3483 yea G2532 and G3756 nay, G235 but G1722 in G846 him G1096 is G3483 yea.
20 G1063 For G3745 how many G1860 soever be the promises G2316 of God, G1722 in G846 him G3483 is the yea: G2532 wherefore also G1722 through G846 him G281 is the Amen, G4314 unto G1391 the glory G2316 of God G1223 through G2257 us.
21 G1161 Now G3588 he that G950 establisheth G2248 us G4862 with G5213 you G1519 in G5547 Christ, G2532 and G5548 anointed G2248 us, G2316 is God;
22 G3588 who G2532 also G4972 sealed G2248 us, G2532 and G1325 gave G2248 us G728 the earnest G4151 of the Spirit G1722 in G2257 our G2588 hearts.
23 G1161 But G1473 I G1941 call G2316 God G3144 for a witness G1909 upon G1699 my G5590 soul, G3754 that G5339 to spare G5216 you G3765 I forbare G2064 to come G1519 unto G2882 Corinth.
