1 G3972 Paul G652 , an apostle G2424 of Jesus G5547 Christ G1223 by G2307 the will G2316 of God G2532 , and G5095 Timothy G80 our brother G1577 , to the congregation G2316 of God G3588 which G5607 [G5752] is G1722 at G2882 Corinth G4862 , with G3956 all G40 the saints G3588 who G5607 [G5752] are G1722 in G3650 all G882 Achaia:
2 G5485 Grace G5213 be to you G2532 and G1515 peace G575 from G2316 God G2257 our G3962 Father G2532 , and G2962 from the Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ.
3 G2128 Blessed G2316 be God G2532 , even G3962 the Father G2257 of our G2962 Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ G3962 , the Father G3628 of compassions G2532 , and G2316 the God G3956 of all G3874 comfort;
4 G3588 Who G3870 [G5723] comforteth G2248 us G1909 in G3956 all G2257 our G2347 tribulation G1519 , that G2248 we G1410 [G5738] may be able G3870 [G5721] to comfort G1722 them who are in G3956 any G2347 trouble G1223 , by G3874 the comfort G3739 with which G3870 0 we G846 ourselves G3870 [G5743] are comforted G5259 by G2316 God.
5 G3754 For G2531 as G3804 the sufferings G5547 of Christ G4052 [G5719] abound G1519 in G2248 us G3779 , so G2257 our G3874 consolation G2532 also G4052 [G5719] aboundeth G1223 by G5547 Christ.
6 G1161 And G1535 whether G2346 [G5743] we are afflicted G5228 , it is for G5216 your G3874 consolation G2532 and G4991 salvation G3588 , which G1754 [G5734] is effectual G1722 in G5281 the enduring G846 of the same G3804 sufferings G3739 which G2249 we G2532 also G3958 [G5719] suffer G1535 : or whether G3870 [G5743] we are comforted G5228 , it is for G5216 your G3874 consolation G2532 and G4991 salvation.
7 G2532 And G2257 our G1680 hope G5228 of G5216 you G949 is steadfast G1492 [G5761] , knowing G3754 , that G5618 as G2075 [G5748] ye are G2844 partakers G3804 of the sufferings G3779 , so G2532 shall ye be also G3874 of the consolation.
8 G1063 For G2309 [G5719] we would G3756 not G80 , brethren G50 0 , have G5209 you G50 [G5721] ignorant G5228 of G2257 our G2347 trouble G3588 which G1096 [G5637] came G2254 to us G1722 in G773 Asia G3754 , that G2596 we were pressed G916 [G5681] out G5236 of measure G5228 , above G1411 strength G5620 , so G2248 that we G1820 [G5683] despaired G2532 even G2198 [G5721] of life:
9 G235 G846 But G2192 [G5758] we had G610 the sentence G2288 of death G1722 in G1438 ourselves G3363 0 , that G3982 0 we should G3363 not G3982 [G5756] trust G1909 in G1438 G5600 [G5753] ourselves G235 , but G1909 in G2316 God G3588 who G1453 [G5723] raiseth G3498 the dead:
10 G3739 Who G4506 [G5673] delivered G2248 us G1537 from G5082 so great G2288 a death G2532 , and G4506 [G5736] doth deliver G1519 : in G3739 whom G1679 [G5758] we have placed our expectation G3754 that G4506 0 G2532 he will G2089 yet G4506 [G5695] deliver us;
11 G5216 Ye G2532 also G4943 [G5723] helping together G1162 by prayer G5228 for G2257 us G2443 , that G5486 for the gift G1519 bestowed upon G2248 us G1537 by G4183 the means of many G4383 persons G2168 [G5686] thanks may be G5228 given G1223 by G4183 many G2257 on our behalf.
12 G1063 For G2257 our G2746 rejoicing G2076 [G5748] is G3778 this G3142 , the testimony G2257 of our G4893 conscience G3754 , that G1722 in G572 simplicity G2532 and G2316 godly G1505 sincerity G3756 , not G1722 with G4559 fleshly G4678 wisdom G235 , but G1722 by G5485 the grace G2316 of God G390 [G5648] , we have conducted ourselves G1722 in G2889 the world G1161 , and G4056 more abundantly G4314 toward G5209 you.
13 G1063 For G1125 [G5719] we write G3756 no G243 other things G5213 to you G235 G2228 , than G3739 what G314 [G5719] ye read G2228 G2532 or G1921 [G5719] acknowledge G1161 ; and G1679 G3754 [G5719] I expect G1921 [G5695] ye shall acknowledge G2532 even G2193 to G5056 the end;
14 G2531 As G2532 also G1921 [G5627] ye have acknowledged G2248 us G575 in G3313 part G3754 , that G2070 [G5748] we are G5216 your G2745 rejoicing G2509 , even as G5210 ye G2532 also G2257 are ours G1722 in G2250 the day G2962 of the Lord G2424 Jesus.
15 G2532 And G5026 in this G4006 confidence G1014 [G5711] I intended G2064 [G5629] to come G4314 to G5209 you G4386 before G2443 , that G2192 [G5725] ye might have G1208 a second G5485 benefit;
16 G2532 And G1330 [G5629] to pass G1223 by G5216 you G1519 into G3109 Macedonia G2532 , and G2064 [G5629] to come G3825 again G575 from G3109 Macedonia G4314 to G5209 you G2532 , and G5259 by G5216 you G4311 [G5683] to be brought on my way G1519 toward G2449 Judaea.
17 G1011 0 When I G3767 therefore G1011 0 was G5124 thus G1011 [G5740] minded G3385 G686 G5530 [G5662] , did I do it G1644 lightly G2228 ? or G3739 the things that G1011 [G5736] I purpose G1011 [G5736] , do I purpose G2596 according G4561 to the flesh G2443 , that G3844 with G1698 me G5600 [G5753] there should be G3483 yea G3483 yea G2532 , and G3756 nay G3756 nay?
18 G1161 But G2316 as God G4103 is true G3754 , G2257 our G3056 word G4314 toward G5209 you G1096 [G5633] was G3756 not G3483 yea G2532 and G3756 nay.
19 G1063 For G5207 the Son G2316 of God G2424 , Jesus G5547 Christ G3588 , who G2784 [G5685] was preached G1722 among G5213 you G1223 by G2257 us G1223 , even by G1700 me G2532 and G4610 Silvanus G2532 and G5095 Timothy G1096 [G5633] , was G3756 not G3483 yea G2532 and G3756 nay G235 , but G1722 in G846 him G1096 [G5754] was G3483 yea.
20 G1063 For G3745 all G1860 the promises G2316 of God G1722 in G846 him G3483 are yea G2532 , and G1722 in G846 him G281 Amen G4314 , to G1391 the glory G2316 of God G1223 by G2257 us.
21 G1161 Now G950 [G5723] he who establisheth G2248 us G4862 with G5213 you G1519 in G5547 Christ G2532 , and G5548 [G5660] hath anointed G2248 us G2316 , is God;
22 G3588 Who G4972 0 hath G2532 also G4972 [G5671] sealed G2248 us G2532 , and G1325 [G5631] given G728 the earnest G4151 of the Spirit G1722 in G2257 our G2588 hearts.
23 G1161 Moreover G1473 I G1941 [G5731] call G2316 God G3144 for a witness G1909 upon G1699 my G5590 soul G3754 , that G5339 [G5740] to spare G5216 you G3765 I have not as yet G2064 [G5627] come G1519 to G2882 Corinth.
