Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timothy our brother, to the church of God which is at Corinth, with all the saints who are in all Achaia:

  • 2 Grace be to you and peace from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • 3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort,
  • 4 who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
  • 5 Because, as the sufferings of Christ abound in us through Christ, so our consolation also abounds by Christ.
  • 6 Now if we are afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effective for enduring the same sufferings which we also suffer. Or if we are comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation.
  • 7 And our hope for you is unshaken, because, we know that as you are partakers of the sufferings, so also you will partake of the consolation.
  • 8 Because, we do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, of our trouble which came to us in Asia: that we were burdened beyond measure, above strength, so that we despaired even of life.
  • 9 But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves but in God who raises the dead,
  • 10 who delivered us from so great a death, and does deliver us; in whom we trust that He will still deliver us,
  • 11 you also helping together in prayer for us, that thanks may be given by many persons on our behalf for the gift granted to us through many.
  • 12 Because our rejoicing is this: the testimony of our conscience that we conducted ourselves in the world in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom but by the grace of God, and more abundantly toward you.
  • 13 Because, we are not writing any other things to you than what you read or acknowledge, and I trust you will acknowledge, even to the end
  • 14 (as also you have acknowledged us partially), that we are your rejoicing as you also are ours, in the day of the Lord Jesus.
  • 15 And in this confidence I intended to come to you before, that you might have a second benefit;
  • 16 to visit you on the way to Macedonia, to return from Macedonia to you, and be helped by you on my way to Judea.
  • 17 Therefore, when I was planning this, did I do it lightly? Or the things I plan, do I plan according to the flesh, that with me there should be Yes, Yes, and No, No?
  • 18 But as God is true, our word to you was not Yes and No.
  • 19 Because, the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us (by me, Silvanus, and Timothy), was not Yes and No, but in Him was Yes.
  • 20 Because, all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God by us.
  • 21 Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and has anointed us is God,
  • 22 who also has sealed us and given us the Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.
  • 23 Moreover I call God to record against my soul, that to spare you I have not yet come to Corinth.
  • 24 Not that we have dominion over your faith, but are fellow workers for your joy; because by faith you stand.
