Tyndale (TYN) New International Version (NIV)
1 But I determened this in my silfe yt I wolde not come agayne to you in hevines. 1 So I made up my mind that I would not make another painful visit to you.
2 For yf I make you sorye who is it that shuld make me glad but the same which is made sory by me? 2 For if I grieve you, who is left to make me glad but you whom I have grieved?
3 And I wrote this same pistle vnto you lest yf I came I shuld take hevynes of them of whom I ought to reioyce. Certaynly this confidence have I in you all that my ioye is the ioye of you all. 3 I wrote as I did so that when I came I should not be distressed by those who ought to make me rejoice. I had confidence in all of you, that you would all share my joy.
4 For in great affliccion and anguysshe of hert I wrote vnto you with many teares: not to make you sory but that ye myght perceave the love which I have most specially vnto you. 4 For I wrote you out of great distress and anguish of heart and with many tears, not to grieve you but to let you know the depth of my love for you.
5 If eny man hath caused sorow the same hath not made me sory but partely: lest I shuld greve you all. 5 If anyone has caused grief, he has not so much grieved me as he has grieved all of you, to some extent--not to put it too severely.
6 It is sufficient vnto the same man that he was rebuked of many. 6 The punishment inflicted on him by the majority is sufficient for him.
7 So that now contrary wyse ye ought to forgeve him and comforte him: lest that same persone shuld be swalowed vp with over moche hevines. 7 Now instead, you ought to forgive and comfort him, so that he will not be overwhelmed by excessive sorrow.
8 Wherfore I exhorte you that love maye have stregth over him. 8 I urge you, therefore, to reaffirm your love for him.
9 For this cause verely dyd I write that I myght knowe the profe of you whether ye shuld be obediet in all thinges. 9 The reason I wrote you was to see if you would stand the test and be obedient in everything.
10 To whom ye forgeve enythinge I forgeve also. And verely if I forgeve enythinge to whom I forgave it for youre sakes forgave I it in the roume of Christ 10 If you forgive anyone, I also forgive him. And what I have forgiven--if there was anything to forgive--I have forgiven in the sight of Christ for your sake,
11 lest Satan shuld prevet vs. For his thoughtes are not vnknowen vnto vs. 11 in order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes.
12 When I was come to Troada for Christes gospels sake (and a great dore was openned vnto me of the Lorde) 12 Now when I went to Troas to preach the gospel of Christ and found that the Lord had opened a door for me,
13 I had no rest in my sprete because I founde not Titus my brother: but toke my leave of them and went awaye into Macedonia. 13 I still had no peace of mind, because I did not find my brother Titus there. So I said good-by to them and went on to Macedonia.
14 Thankes be vnto God which alwayes geveth vs the victorie in Christ and openeth the saver of his knowledge by vs in every place. 14 But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of him.
15 For we are vnto God the swete savoure of Christ both amoge them that are saved and also amoge them which perisshe. 15 For we are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing.
16 To the one parte are we ye savoure of deeth vnto deeth. And vnto the other parte are we the savoure of lyfe vnto lyfe. And who is mete vnto these thinges? 16 To the one we are the smell of death; to the other, the fragrance of life. And who is equal to such a task?
17 For we are not as many are which choppe and chaunge with the worde of God: but even oute of purenes and by the power of God and in the sight of God so speake we in Christ. 17 Unlike so many, we do not peddle the word of God for profit. On the contrary, in Christ we speak before God with sincerity, like men sent from God.
