Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
8 For we do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, of the affliction we experienced in Asia; for we were so utterly, unbearably crushed that we despaired of life itself. 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 Why, we felt that we had received the sentence of death; but that was to make us rely not on ourselves but on God who raises 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 he delivered us from so deadly a peril, and he will deliver us; on him we have set our hope that he will deliver us again. 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 You also must help us by prayer, so that many will give thanks on our behalf for the blessing granted us in answer to many prayers. 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.
