Book 47 2 Corinthians 001:001 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus through the will of God, and Timothy our brother, to the assembly of God which is at Corinth, with all the saints who are in the whole of Achaia: 001:002 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 001:003 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort; 001:004 who comforts us in all our affliction, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, through the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. 001:005 For as the sufferings of Christ abound to us, even so our comfort also abounds through Christ. 001:006 But if we are afflicted, it is for your comfort and salvation. If we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you the patient enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer. 001:007 Our hope for you is steadfast, knowing that, since you are partakers of the sufferings, so also are you of the comfort. 001:008 For we don't desire to have you uninformed, brothers,{The word for "brothers" here and where context allows may also be correctly translated "brothers and sisters" or "siblings."} concerning our affliction which happened to us in Asia, that we were weighed down exceedingly, beyond our power, so much that we despaired even of life. 001:009 Yes, we ourselves have had the sentence of death within ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God who raises the dead, 001:010 who delivered us out of so great a death, and does deliver; on whom we have set our hope that he will also still deliver us; 001:011 you also helping together on our behalf by your supplication; that, for the gift bestowed on us by means of many, thanks may be given by many persons on your behalf. 001:012 For our boasting 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 toward you. 001:013 For we write no other things to you, than what you read or even acknowledge, and I hope you will acknowledge to the end; 001:014 as also you acknowledged us in part, that we are your boasting, even as you also are ours, in the day of our Lord Jesus. 001:015 In this confidence, I was determined to come first to you, that you might have a second benefit; 001:016 and by you to pass into Macedonia, and again from Macedonia to come to you, and to be sent forward by you on my journey to Judea. 001:017 When I therefore was thus determined, did I show fickleness? Or the things that I purpose, do I purpose according to the flesh, that with me there should be the "Yes, yes" and the "No, no?" 001:018 But as God is faithful, our word toward you was not "Yes and no." 001:019 For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us, by me, Silvanus, and Timothy, was not "Yes and no," but in him is "Yes." 001:020 For however many are the promises of God, in him is the "Yes." Therefore also through him is the "Amen," to the glory of God through us. 001:021 Now he who establishes us with you in Christ, and anointed us, is God; 001:022 who also sealed us, and gave us the down payment of the Spirit in our hearts. 001:023 But I call God for a witness to my soul, that I didn't come to Corinth to spare you. 001:024 Not that we have lordship over your faith, but are fellow workers with you for your joy. For you stand firm in faith. 002:001 But I determined this for myself, that I would not come to you again in sorrow. 002:002 For if I make you sorry, then who will make me glad but he who is made sorry by me? 002:003 And I wrote this very thing to you, so that, when I came, I wouldn't have sorrow from them of whom I ought to rejoice; having confidence in you all, that my joy would be shared by all of you...
