2 Corinthians 1

CJB 1 From: Sha'ul, by God's will an emissary of the Messiah Yeshua, and brother Timothy To: God's Messianic community in Corinth, along with all God's people throughout Achaia: NIV 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: CJB 2 Grace to you and shalom from God our Father and the Lord Yeshua the Messiah. NIV 2 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. CJB 3 Praised be God, Father of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, compassionate Father, God of all encouragement and comfort; NIV 3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, CJB 4 who encourages us in all our trials, so that we can encourage others in whatever trials they may be undergoing with the encouragement we ourselves have received from God. NIV 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. CJB 5 For just as the Messiah's sufferings overflow into us, so through the Messiah our encouragement also overflows. NIV 5 For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows. CJB 6 So if we undergo trials, it is for your encouragement and deliverance; and if we are encouraged, that should encourage you when you have to endure sufferings like those we are experiencing. NIV 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. CJB 7 Moreover, our hope for you remains staunch, because we know that as you share in the sufferings, you will also share in the encouragement. NIV 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. CJB 8 For, brothers, we want you to know about the trials we have undergone in the province of Asia. The burden laid on us was so far beyond what we could bear that we even despaired of living through it. NIV 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. CJB 9 In our hearts we felt we were under sentence of death. However, this was to get us to rely not on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead! NIV 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. CJB 10 He rescued us from such deadly peril, and he will rescue us again! The one in whom we have placed our hope will indeed continue to rescue us. NIV 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, CJB 11 And you must add your help by praying for us; for the more people there are praying, the more people there will be to give thanks when their prayer for us is answered. NIV 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. CJB 12 For we take pride in this: that our conscience assures us that in our dealings with the world, and especially with you, we have conducted ourselves with frankness and godly pureness of motive - not by worldly wisdom but by God-given grace. NIV 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. CJB 13 There are no hidden meanings in our letters other than what you can read and understand; and my hope is that you will understand fully, NIV 13 For we do not write you anything you cannot read or understand. And I hope that, CJB 14 as indeed you have already understood us in part; so that on the Day of our Lord Yeshua you can be as proud of us as we are of you. NIV 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. CJB 15 So sure was I of this that I had planned to come and see you, so that you might have the benefit of a second visit. NIV 15 Because I was confident of this, I planned to visit you first so that you might benefit twice. CJB 16 I wanted to visit you on my way to Macedonia, visit you again on my way back from Macedonia, and then have you send me on my way to Y'hudah. NIV 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. CJB 17 Did I make these plans lightly? Or do I make plans the way a worldly man does, ready to say, "Yes, yes," and "No, no," in the same breath? NIV 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"? CJB 18 As surely as God is trustworthy, we don't say "Yes" when we mean "No." NIV 18 But as surely as God is faithful, our message to you is not "Yes" and "No." CJB 19 For the Son of God, the Messiah Yeshua, who was proclaimed among you through us - that is, through me and Sila and Timothy - was not a yes-and-no man; on the contrary, with him it is always "Yes!" NIV 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." CJB 20 For however many promises God has made, they all find their "Yes" in connection with him; that is why it is through him that we say the "Amen" when we give glory to God. NIV 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. CJB 21 Moreover, it is God who sets both us and you in firm union with the Messiah; he has anointed us, NIV 21 Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us, CJB 22 put his seal on us, and given us his Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee for the future. NIV 22 set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come. CJB 23 I call God to witness - he knows what my life is like - that the reason I held back from coming to Corinth was out of consideration for you! NIV 23 I call God as my witness that it was in order to spare you that I did not return to Corinth. CJB 24 We are not trying to dictate how you must live out your trust in the Messiah, for in your trust you are standing firm. Rather, we are working with you for your own happiness. NIV 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.
