1 G1107 But we make known G1161 G1473 to you, G80 brethren, G3588 the G5484 favor G3588 G2316 of God, G3588 the one G1325 having been given G1722 in G3588 the G1577 assemblies G3588 G* of Macedonia;
2 G3754 that G1722 in G4183 much G1382 proof G2347 of affliction, G3588 the G4050 abundance G3588 G5479 of their joy, G1473 G2532 and G3588 the G2596 [2according to G899 1depth] G4432 their poorness, G1473 G4052 abounded G1519 to G3588 the G4149 riches G3588 G572 of their simplicity. G1473
3 G3754 For G2596 according to G1411 their power, G3140 I witness, G2532 and G5228 above G1411 their power G830 their enthusiasm,
4 G3326 with G4183 much G3874 consolation G1189 beseeching G1473 of us G3588 the G5484 favor G2532 and G3588 the G2842 fellowship G3588 of the G1248 service, G3588 of the one G1519 for G3588 the G39 holy ones, G1209 for us to receive it . G1473
5 G2532 And G3756 not G2531 only as G1679 we hoped, G235 but G1438 of themselves G1325 they gave G4412 first G3588 to the G2962 Lord, G2532 and G1473 to us G1223 through G2307 the will G2316 of God.
6 G1519 So that G3588 G3870 we appealed to G1473 G* Titus, G2443 that G2531 as G4278 he began before, G3779 so G2532 also G2005 he should complete G1519 with G1473 you G2532 also G3588 G5484 this favor. G3778
7 G235 But G5618 as G1722 in G3956 every way G4052 you abound, G4102 in belief, G2532 and G3056 word, G2532 and G1108 knowledge, G2532 and G3956 all G4710 diligence, G2532 and G3588 in the G1537 [2from G1473 3you G1722 4to G1473 5us G26 1love], G2443 that G2532 also G1722 in G3778 this G3588 G5484 favor G4052 you should abound.
8 G3756 Not G2596 according to G2003 command G3004 I speak, G235 but G1223 through G3588 the G2087 [2of others G4710 1diligence], G2532 and G3588 the G3588 [2of the G5212 4of your G26 5love G1103 3genuineness G1381 1proving].
9 G1097 For you know G1063 G3588 the G5484 favor G3588 G2962 of our Lord G1473 G* Jesus G5547 Christ, G3754 that G1223 for G1473 you G4433 he became poor -- G4145 being rich; G1510.6 G2443 that G1473 you G3588 by his G1565 G4432 poorness G4147 should be enriched.
10 G2532 And G1106 an opinion G1722 in G3778 this G1325 I give. G3778 For this G1063 G1473 is advantageous to you, G4851 G3748 the ones who G3756 not G3440 only G3588 the G4160 doing, G235 but G2532 also G3588 the G2309 wanting, G4278 began before G575 a year ago. G4070
11 G3568 But now G1161 G2532 also G3588 [2the G4160 3doing G2005 1complete]! G3704 so that G2509 just as G3588 the G4288 eagerness G3588 of the thing G2309 wanted, G3779 so G2532 also G3588 the G2005 completing G1537 of G3588 the G2192 having.
12 G1487 For if G1063 G3588 the G4288 eagerness G4295 is situated, G2526 according to that which G1437 ever G2192 anyone should have, G5100 G2144 it is well-received, G3756 it is not G2526 according to that which G3756 he does not have. G2192
13 G3756 For it is not G1063 G2443 that G243 others G425 have liberty, G1473 but to you G1161 G2347 affliction;
14 G235 but G1537 from out of G2471 equality G1722 in G3588 the G3568 present G2540 time, G3588 that G1473 your G4051 abundance G1519 be for G3588 G1565 their G5303 deficiency, G2443 that G2532 also G3588 G1565 their G4051 abundance G1096 should be G1519 for G3588 G1473 your G5303 deficiency, G3704 so that G1096 [2should take place G2471 1equality].
15 G2531 As G1125 it has been written, G3588 The one gathering G3588 G4183 much G3756 was not G4121 superabundant; G2532 and G3588 the one gathering G3588 G3641 few G3756 did not G1641 have less.
16 G5484 But gratitude G1161 G3588 be to G2316 God, G3588 to the one G1325 giving G3588 the G1473 same G4710 diligence G5228 for G1473 you G1722 in G3588 the G2588 heart G* of Titus;
17 G3754 for G3588 the G3303 comfort indeed G3874 G1209 he received; G4705 [3more diligent G1161 1but G5224 2being] G830 in enthusiasm G1831 he came forth G4314 to G1473 you.
18 G4842 And we sent G1161 G3326 with G1473 him G3588 the G80 brother, G3739 of whom G3588 the G1868 high praise G1722 is in G3588 the G2098 good news G1223 through G3956 all G3588 the G1577 assemblies
19 G3756 (and not only so, G3440 G1161 G235 but G2532 also G5500 handpicked G5259 by G3588 the G1577 assemblies; G4898 he is our traveling companion G1473 G4862 with G3588 G5484 this favor, G3778 G3588 which is G1247 being served G5259 by G1473 us G4314 to G3588 the G1473 [4himself G3588 2of the G2962 3Lord G1391 1glory] G2532 and G4288 of your eagerness) G1473
20 G4724 getting in readiness G3778 for this, G3361 lest G5100 anyone G1473 should scoff at us G3469 G1722 in G3588 the G100 vigor G3778 by which this G3588 G1247 is being served G5259 by G1473 us;
21 G4306 thinking beforehand G2570 good things, G3756 not G3440 only G1799 before G2962 the Lord, G235 but G2532 also G1799 before G444 men.
22 G4842 And we sent together G1161 G1473 with them G3588 G80 our brother G1473 G3739 whom G1381 we approved G1722 [4in G4183 5many things G4178 3often G4705 2diligent G1510.6 1being], G3568 but now G1161 G4183 much G4705 more diligent, G4006 [2reliance G4183 1in much] G3588 G1519 towards G1473 you;
23 G1535 whether G5228 for G* Titus, G2844 [2partner G1699 1my] G2532 and G1519 for G1473 you G4904 a fellow-worker; G1535 or whether G80 of our brethren, G1473 G652 apostles G1577 of assemblies, G1391 the glory G5547 of Christ.
