1 Paul, apostle of Jesus Christ, by the will of God, and Timothy, brother, to the church of God that is at Corinth, with all saints that be in all Achaia, 1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and Timothy our brother, To the church of God in Corinth, together with all the saints throughout Achaia:
2 grace to you, and peace of God our Father and of the Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
3 Blessed be God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Father of mercies, and God of all comfort, 3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort,
4 which comforteth us in all our tribulation, that also we be able to comfort them, that be in all dis-ease, by the admonishing by which also we be admonished of God [that and we may comfort them, that be in all pressure, or overlaying, by the exhortation, or admonishing, by which and we be admonished of God]. 4 who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
5 For as the passions of Christ be plenteous in us, so also by Christ our comfort is plenteous. 5 For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows.
6 And whether we be in tribulation, for your tribulation and health, either we be comforted, for your comfort [+Forsooth whether we be troubled, or be pursued, it is for your teaching and health, or we be comforted, for your comfort], either we be admonished, for your admonishing and health. Which worketh in you the suffering of the same passions, which also we suffer, 6 If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer.
7 that our hope be firm for you; witting for as ye be fellows of passions, so ye shall be also of comfort. 7 And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort.
8 For, brethren, we will that ye know of our tribulation, that was done in Asia; for over measure we were grieved over might, so that it distressed us, yea, to live. [+Forsooth, brethren, we will not you to unknow of our tribulation, that was done in Asia; for over measure we were grieved above virtue, or might, so that it distressed us, yea, to live.] 8 We do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about the hardships we suffered in the province of Asia. We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired even of life.
9 But we in us selves had answer of death, that we trust not in us, but in God that raiseth dead men. [But we ourselves in ourselves had answer, or certainty, of death, that we be not trusting in ourselves, but in God that raiseth dead men.] 9 Indeed, in our hearts we felt the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead.
10 Which delivered us, and delivereth from so great perils, into whom we hope, also yet he shall deliver, 10 He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us,
11 while also ye help in prayer for us [helping and you in prayer for us]; that of the persons of many faces of that giving that is in us, thankings be done for us by many men to God [by many partners, graces, or thanks, be done to God for us]. 11 as you help us by your prayers. Then many will give thanks on our behalf for the gracious favor granted us in answer to the prayers of many.
12 For our glory is this, the witnessing of our conscience, that in simpleness and cleanness of God, and not in fleshly wisdom, but in the grace of God, we lived in this world, but more plenteously to you. 12 Now this is our boast: Our conscience testifies that we have conducted ourselves in the world, and especially in our relations with you, in the holiness and sincerity that are from God. We have done so not according to worldly wisdom but according to God's grace.
13 And we write not other things to you, than those that ye have read and know, and I hope that into the end ye shall know, 13 For we do not write you anything you cannot read or understand. And I hope that,
14 as also ye have known us a part [as and ye have known us of part]; for we be your glory, as also ye be ours in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 14 as you have understood us in part, you will come to understand fully that you can boast of us just as we will boast of you in the day of the Lord Jesus.
15 And in this trusting I would first come to you, that ye should have the second grace, 15 Because I was confident of this, I planned to visit you first so that you might benefit twice.
16 and pass by you into Macedonia, and again from Macedonia come to you, and of you be led into Judaea. 16 I planned to visit you on my way to Macedonia and to come back to you from Macedonia, and then to have you send me on my way to Judea.
17 But when I would this thing, whether I used unsteadfastness, either those things that I think, I think after the flesh, that at me be, it is and it is not? [+Forsooth when I would this thing, whether I used lightness, either unsteadfastness, or those things that I think, I think after the flesh, that there be at me, is and not, or, yea and nay?] 17 When I planned this, did I do it lightly? Or do I make my plans in a worldly manner so that in the same breath I say, "Yes, yes" and "No, no"?
18 But God is true, for our word that was at you, is and is not, is not therein, but is is in it. [+Forsooth God is true, for our word that was at you, there is not in it, yea and nay/there is not in it, is and nay, but is, that is truth, is in it.] 18 But as surely as God is faithful, our message to you is not "Yes" and "No."
19 For why Jesus Christ, the Son of God, which is preached among you by us, by me, and Silvanus, and Timothy, there was not in him, is and is not, but is was in him [+there was not in him, is and nay, but in him was is /there was not in him, yea and nay, but yea in him was]. 19 For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by me and Silas and Timothy, was not "Yes" and "No," but in him it has always been "Yes."
20 For why how many ever be promises of God, in that is, be fulfilled [Forsooth how many ever be promises of God, in him is, that is, in him they be fulfilled]. And therefore by him we say Amen to God, to our glory. 20 For no matter how many promises God has made, they are "Yes" in Christ. And so through him the "Amen" is spoken by us to the glory of God.
21 Soothly it is God that confirmeth us with you in Christ, and which anointed us, [The which soothly confirmeth us with you in Christ, and the which God anointed us,] 21 Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us,
22 and which marked us [and that marked us], and gave earnest of the Spirit in our hearts. 22 set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.
23 For I call God to witness against my soul [Forsooth I in-call God witness into my soul], that I sparing you came not over to Corinth; 23 I call God as my witness that it was in order to spare you that I did not return to Corinth.
24 not that we be lords of your faith [not for we be lords of your faith], but we be helpers of your joy; for through belief ye stand. 24 Not that we lord it over your faith, but we work with you for your joy, because it is by faith you stand firm.
