2 Corinthians 1:4-14 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
4 who 1comforts us in all our affliction so that we will be able to comfort those who are in aany affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. 5 For just 2as the sufferings of Christ are bours in abundance, so also our comfort is abundant through Christ. 6 But if we are afflicted, it is 3for your comfort and salvation; or if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which is effective in the patient enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer; 7 and our hope for you is firmly grounded, knowing that 4as you are sharers of our sufferings, so also you are sharers of our comfort. 8 For 5we do not want you to be unaware, brethren, of our 6affliction which came to us in c7Asia, that we were burdened excessively , beyond our strength, so that we despaired even of life; 9 dindeed, we had the sentence of death within ourselves so that we would not trust in ourselves, but in God who raises the dead; 10 who 8delivered us from so great a peril of death, and will deliver us, eHe 9on whom we have set our hope. And He will yet deliver us, 11 you also joining in 10helping us through your prayers, so that thanks may be given by 11many persons on our behalf for the favor bestowed on us through the prayers of many.

Paul's Integrity

12 For our fproud confidence is this: the testimony of 12our conscience, that in holiness and 13godly sincerity, 14not in fleshly wisdom but in the grace of God, we have conducted ourselves in the world, and especially toward you. 13 For we write nothing else to you than what you read and understand, and I hope you will understand 15until the end; 14 just as you also partially did understand us, that we are your reason to be proud as you also are ours, in 16the day of our Lord Jesus.
