1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ, through the will of God, and Timotheus the brother, to the assembly of God that is in Corinth, with all the saints who are 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 from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ! 2 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
3 Blessed [is] God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of the 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 who is comforting us in all our tribulation, for our being able to comfort those in any tribulation through the comfort with which we are comforted ourselves by 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 because, as the sufferings of the Christ do abound to us, so through the Christ doth abound also our comfort; 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, [it is] for your comfort and salvation, that is wrought in the enduring of the same sufferings that we also suffer; whether we are comforted, [it is] for your comfort and salvation; 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 and our hope [is] stedfast for you, knowing that even as ye are partakers of the sufferings -- so also of the 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 we do not wish you to be ignorant, brethren, of our tribulation that happened to us in Asia, that we were exceedingly burdened above [our] power, so that we despaired even of life; 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 ourselves in ourselves the sentence of the death have had, that we may not be trusting on ourselves, but on God, who is raising the dead, 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 who out of so great a death did deliver us, and doth deliver, in whom we have hoped that even yet He will 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 ye working together also for us by your supplication, that the gift through many persons to us, through many may be thankfully acknowledged 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 glorying is this: the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and sincerity of God, not in fleshly wisdom, but in the grace of God, we did conduct ourselves in the world, and more abundantly toward 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 for no other things do we write to you, but what ye either do read or also acknowledge, and I hope that also unto the end ye shall acknowledge, 13 For we do not write you anything you cannot read or understand. And I hope that,
14 according as also ye did acknowledge us in part, that your glory we are, even as also ye [are] ours, in the day of the Lord Jesus; 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 confidence I was purposing to come unto you before, that a second favour ye might have, 15 Because I was confident of this, I planned to visit you first so that you might benefit twice.
16 and through you to pass to Macedonia, and again from Macedonia to come unto you, and by you to be sent forward to Judea. 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 This, therefore, counselling, did I then use the lightness; or the things that I counsel, according to the flesh do I counsel, that it may be with me Yes, yes, and No, no? 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 and God [is] faithful, that our word unto you became not Yes and No, 18 But as surely as God is faithful, our message to you is not "Yes" and "No."
19 for the Son of God, Jesus Christ, among you through us having been preached -- through me and Silvanus and Timotheus -- did not become Yes and No, but in him it hath become Yes; 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 as many as [are] promises of God, in him [are] the Yes, and in him the Amen, for glory to God through us; 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 and He who is confirming you with us into Christ, and did anoint us, [is] God, 21 Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us,
22 who also sealed us, and gave the 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 And I for a witness on God do call upon my soul, that sparing you, I came not yet 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 are lords over your faith, but we are workers together with your joy, for by the faith 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.
