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 , unto the church G2316 of God G3588 which G5607 is [G5752] G1722 at G2882 Corinth G4862 , with G3956 all G40 the saints G3588 which G5607 are [G5752] 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 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.
