From Textus Receptus

  • 1 Now concerning the ministering to the saints, it is superfluous for me to write to you;
  • 2 Because, I know your willingness, about which I boast of you to the Macedonians, that Achaia was ready a year ago; and your zeal has stirred up the majority.
  • 3 Yet I have sent the brethren, lest our boasting of you should be in vain in this respect, that, you may be ready, as I said;
  • 4 lest if some Macedonians come with me and find you unprepared, we (that we do not mention you) should be ashamed of this confident boasting.
  • 5 Therefore I thought it necessary to exhort the brethren to go to you ahead of time, and prepare your generous gift beforehand, of which you had previous notification, that it may be ready as a matter of generosity and not as a grudging obligation.
  • 6 But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.
  • 7 So each one give, according as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; because, God loves a cheerful giver.
  • 8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.
  • 9 As it is written: “He has dispersed abroad, he has given to the poor; his righteousness endures forever.”
  • 10 Now He who supplies seed to the sower, also supply bread for your food, multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness,
  • 11 being enriched in everything for all abundance, which causes thanksgiving through us to God.
  • 12 Because, the administration of this service not only supplies the needs of the saints, but also is abounding through many thanksgivings to God,
  • 13 while, through the proof of this ministry, they glorify God for the obedience of your confession to the gospel of Christ, and for your liberal distribution to them and all people,
  • 14 and by their prayer for you, who long for you because of the exceeding grace of God in you.
  • 15 Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!
