But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves , but in God which raiseth the dead:
And in this confidence I was minded to come unto you before, that ye might have a second benefit;
And I wrote this same unto you, lest, when I came , I should have sorrow from them of whom I ought to rejoice ; having confidence in you all, that my joy is the joy of you all.
For out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote unto you with many tears; not that ye should be grieved , but that ye might know the love which I have more abundantly unto you.
I had no rest in my spirit, because I found not Titus my brother: but taking my leave of them, I went from thence into Macedonia.
And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward:
Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech:
Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy , we faint not;
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written , I believed , and therefore have I spoken ; we also believe , and therefore speak ;
For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved , we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
For we commend not ourselves again unto you, but give you occasion to glory on our behalf, that ye may have somewhat to answer them which glory in appearance, and not in heart.
As sorrowful , yet alway rejoicing ; as poor, yet making many rich ; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.
Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
For , when we were come into Macedonia, our flesh had no rest, but we were troubled on every side; without were fightings, within were fears.
Now therefore perform the doing of it; that as there was a readiness to will , so there may be a performance also out of that which ye have .
For if there be first a willing mind, it is accepted according to that a man hath , and not according to that he hath not.
And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:
And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled .
Not boasting of things without our measure, that is, of other men's labours; but having hope, when your faith is increased , that we shall be enlarged by you according to our rule abundantly ,
Behold , the third time I am ready to come to you; and I will not be burdensome to you: for I seek not yours, but you: for the children ought not to lay up for the parents, but the parents for the children.
