  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 mercies G2532 , and G2316 the God G3956 of all G3874 comfort;
  4 G3588 Who G3870 comforteth [G5723]   G2248 us G1909 in G3956 all G2257 our G2347 tribulation G1519 , that G2248 we G1410 may be able [G5738]   G3870 to comfort [G5721]   G1722 them which are in G3956 any G2347 trouble G1223 , by G3874 the comfort G3739 wherewith G3870 we G846 ourselves G3870 are comforted [G5743]   G5259 of G2316 God.
  5 G3754 For G2531 as G3804 the sufferings G5547 of Christ G4052 abound [G5719]   G1519 in G2248 us G3779 , so G2257 our G3874 consolation G2532 also G4052 aboundeth [G5719]   G1223 by G5547 Christ.
  6 G1161 And G1535 whether G2346 we be afflicted [G5743]   G5228 , it is for G5216 your G3874 consolation G2532 and G4991 salvation G3588 , which G1754 is effectual [G5734]   G1722 in G5281 the enduring G846 of the same G3804 sufferings G3739 which G2249 we G2532 also G3958 suffer [G5719]   G1535 : or whether G3870 we be comforted [G5743]   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 stedfast G1492 , knowing [G5761]   G3754 , that G5618 as G2075 ye are [G5748]   G2844 partakers G3804 of the sufferings G3779 , so G2532 shall ye be also G3874 of the consolation.
  8 G1063 For G2309 we would [G5719]   G3756 not G80 , brethren G50 , have G5209 you G50 ignorant [G5721]   G5228 of G2257 our G2347 trouble G3588 which G1096 came [G5637]   G2254 to us G1722 in G773 Asia G3754 , that G2596 we were pressed G916 out [G5681]   G5236 of measure G5228 , above G1411 strength G5620 , insomuch G2248 that we G1820 despaired [G5683]   G2532 even G2198 of life [G5721]  :
  9 G235 But G846   G2192 we had [G5758]   G610 the sentence G2288 of death G1722 in G1438 ourselves G3363 , that G3982 we should G3363 not G3982 trust [G5756]   G1909 in G1438 ourselves G5600   [G5753]   G235 , but G1909 in G2316 God G3588 which G1453 raiseth [G5723]   G3498 the dead:
  10 G3739 Who G4506 delivered [G5673]   G2248 us G1537 from G5082 so great G2288 a death G2532 , and G4506 doth deliver [G5736]   G1519 : in G3739 whom G1679 we trust [G5758]   G3754 that G4506 he will G2532   G2089 yet G4506 deliver [G5695]   us;
  11 G5216 Ye G2532 also G4943 helping together [G5723]   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 thanks may be [G5686]   G5228 given G1223 by G4183 many G2257 on our behalf.
  12 G1063 For G2257 our G2746 rejoicing G2076 is [G5748]   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 , we have had our conversation [G5648]   G1722 in G2889 the world G1161 , and G4056 more abundantly G4314 to G5209 you-ward.
  13 G1063 For G1125 we write [G5719]   G3756 none G243 other things G5213 unto you G235 , than G2228   G3739 what G314 ye read [G5719]   G2228 or G2532   G1921 acknowledge [G5719]   G1161 ; and G1679 I trust [G5719]   G3754   G1921 ye shall acknowledge [G5695]   G2532 even G2193 to G5056 the end;
  14 G2531 As G2532 also G1921 ye have acknowledged [G5627]   G2248 us G575 in G3313 part G3754 , that G2070 we are [G5748]   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 I was minded [G5711]   G2064 to come [G5629]   G4314 unto G5209 you G4386 before G2443 , that G2192 ye might have [G5725]   G1208 a second G5485 benefit;
  16 G2532 And G1330 to pass [G5629]   G1223 by G5216 you G1519 into G3109 Macedonia G2532 , and G2064 to come [G5629]   G3825 again G575 out of G3109 Macedonia G4314 unto G5209 you G2532 , and G5259 of G5216 you G4311 to be brought on my way [G5683]   G1519 toward G2449 Judaea.
  17 G1011 When I G3767 therefore G1011 was G5124 thus G1011 minded [G5740]   G3385 , did I use G686   G5530   [G5662]   G1644 lightness G2228 ? or G3739 the things that G1011 I purpose [G5736]   G1011 , do I purpose [G5736]   G2596 according G4561 to the flesh G2443 , that G3844 with G1698 me G5600 there should be [G5753]   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 was [G5633]   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 [G5685]   G1722 among G5213 you G1223 by G2257 us G1223 , even by G1700 me G2532 and G4610 Silvanus G2532 and G5095 Timotheus G1096 , was [G5633]   G3756 not G3483 yea G2532 and G3756 nay G235 , but G1722 in G846 him G1096 was [G5754]   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 , unto G1391 the glory G2316 of God G1223 by G2257 us.
  21 G1161 Now G950 he which stablisheth [G5723]   G2248 us G4862 with G5213 you G1519 in G5547 Christ G2532 , and G5548 hath anointed [G5660]   G2248 us G2316 , is God;
  22 G3588 Who G4972 hath G2532 also G4972 sealed [G5671]   G2248 us G2532 , and G1325 given [G5631]   G728 the earnest G4151 of the Spirit G1722 in G2257 our G2588 hearts.
  23 G1161 Moreover G1473 I G1941 call [G5731]   G2316 God G3144 for a record G1909 upon G1699 my G5590 soul G3754 , that G5339 to spare [G5740]   G5216 you G2064 I came [G5627]   G3765 not as yet G1519 unto G2882 Corinth.
  24 G3756 Not G3754 for that G2961 we have dominion over [G5719]   G5216 your G4102 faith G235 , but G2070 are [G5748]   G4904 helpers G5216 of your G5479 joy G1063 : for G4102 by faith G2476 ye stand [G5758]  .
ERV(i) 1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus through the will of God, and Timothy our brother, unto the church of God which is at Corinth, with all the saints which are in the whole of Achaia: 2 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 3 Blessed [be ]the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort; 4 who comforteth us in all our affliction, that we may be able to comfort them that are in any affliction, through the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. 5 For as the sufferings of Christ abound unto us, even so our comfort also aboundeth through Christ. 6 But whether we be afflicted, it is for your comfort and salvation; or whether we be comforted, it is for your comfort, which worketh in the patient enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: 7 and our hope for you is stedfast; knowing that, as ye are partakers of the sufferings, so also are ye of the comfort. 8 For we would not have you ignorant, brethren, concerning our affliction which befell [us ]in Asia, that we were weighed down exceedingly, beyond our power, insomuch that we despaired even of life: 9 yea, we ourselves have had the answer of death within ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead: 10 who delivered us out of so great a death, and will deliver: on whom we have set our hope that he will also still deliver us; 11 ye also helping together on our behalf by your supplication; that, for the gift bestowed upon us by means of many, thanks may be given by many persons on our behalf. 12 For our glorying is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in holiness and sincerity of God, not in fleshly wisdom but in the grace of God, we behaved ourselves in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward. 13 For we write none other things unto you, than what ye read or even acknowledge, and I hope ye will acknowledge unto the end: 14 as also ye did acknowledge us in part, that we are your glorying, even as ye also are ours, in the day of our Lord Jesus. 15 And in this confidence I was minded to come before unto you, that ye might have a second benefit; 16 and by you to pass into Macedonia, and again from Macedonia to come unto you, and of you to be set forward on my journey unto Judaea. 17 When I therefore was thus minded, did I shew fickleness? or the things that I purpose, do I purpose according to the flesh, that with me there should be the yea yea and the nay nay? 18 But as God is faithful, our word toward you is not yea and nay. 19 For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us, [even ]by me and Silvanus and Timothy, was not yea and nay, but in him is yea. 20 For how many soever be the promises of God, in him is the yea: wherefore also through him is the Amen, unto the glory of God through us. 21 Now he that stablisheth us with you in Christ, and anointed us, is God; 22 who also sealed us, and gave [us ]the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts. 23 But I call God for a witness upon my soul, that to spare you I forbare to come unto Corinth. 24 Not that we have lordship over your faith, but are helpers of your joy: for by faith ye stand.
