2 Corinthians 1]

     1:1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God and Timothy our brother, to the congregation* of God who are in Corinth, together with all the holy-ones who are in the whole ofAchaia: 1:2 grace to youĎ and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

     1:3 The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of the mercies and God of all encouragement is gracious*; 1:4 who is encouraging us on our every affliction, *that* we may be able to encourage those who are in any affliction, through the encouragement of which we ourselves are encouraged by God. 1:5 Because just-as the sufferings of the Christ abound to us, so our encouragement also abounds through the Christ. 1:6 But whether we are afflicted, it is on behalf of yourĎ encouragement and salvation; which is working in the endurance of the same sufferings which we also are suffering; and our hope is steadfast on yourĎ behalf. If whether we are encouraged, it is on behalf of yourĎ encouragement and salvation, 1:7 knowing that, just-as youĎ are partners of the sufferings, so youĎ are also of the comfort. 1:8 For* brethren, we do not wish youĎ to be ignorant in regard to our affliction which happened to us in Asia, that we were burdened down surpassingly, beyond our power, so-that we despaired even to be living. 1:9 But, we ourselves have had the verdict of death in ourselves, in order that we should not have confidence in ourselves, but in God, who is raising up the dead; 1:10 who rescued us out of so-great a death and is rescuing us; in whom we have hoped that he will also still be rescuing us. 1:11YouĎ are also working together on our behalf by yourĎ supplication; in order that the gift* to us from many faces {i.e. mouths} might be a thanksgiving through many people on our behalf.

     1:12 For* this is our boasting, the testimony of our conscience, that in clarity and sincerity of God, not in fleshly wisdom but in the grace of God, we conducted ourselves in the world and even-more toward youĎ. 1:13 For* we are writing no other things to youĎ, but what youĎ are reading or even what youĎ know. Now I hope youĎ will fully know these things we write until the end; 1:14as youĎ also recognized us partially, that we are yourĎ boasting, just-as youĎ are also ours, in the day of our Lord Jesus.

     1:15 And in this confidence, I was planning to come to youĎ beforehand, in order that youĎmight have a second favor from me; 1:16 and through youĎ to go through into Macedonia, and away from Macedonia to come to youĎ again and to be sent onward to Judea by youĎ. 1:17Therefore while planning this certain thing, I did not consequently* use fickleness, did I? Or what I plan, do I plan those things according to the flesh, in order that there should be from me the yes, yes and the no, no? 1:18 But as God is faithful, our word toward youĎ did not become yes and no. 1:19 For* the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among youĎ through us, that is,through me and Silvanus and Timothy, did not become yes and no, but in him it has become yes.1:20 For* as many things as are the promises of God, in him is the yes and in him is the amen, for glory to God through us. 1:21 Now he who is confirming us together with youĎ in Christ and anointed us is God, 1:22 who also sealed us and gave us the down-payment of the Spirit in our hearts.

     1:23 Now I myself call upon God as a witness upon my soul, that, I came to Corinth no more sosparing youĎ. 1:24 Not that we have lordship over yourĎ faith, but are fellow workers of yourĎ joy; for* youĎ are standing in the faith.
