1:4 4 which comforteth us in all our tribulation, that also we be able to comfort them, that be in all dis-ease, by the admonishing by which also we be admonished of God [that and we may comfort them, that be in all pressure, or overlaying, by the exhortation, or admonishing, by which and we be admonished of God] . 4 which comforteth us in all our tribulation, insomuch that we are able to comfort them which are troubled, in whatsoever tribulation it be, with the same comfort wherewith we our selves are comforted of God. 4 Which comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any affliction by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. 4 Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them who are in any trouble, by the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
1:5 5 For as the passions of Christ be plenteous in us, so also by Christ our comfort is plenteous. 5 For as the afflictions of Christ are plenteous in us: even so is our consolation plenteous by Christ. 5 For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation aboundeth through Christ. 5 For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.
1:6 6 And whether we be in tribulation, for your tribulation and health, either we be comforted, for your comfort [+Forsooth whether we be troubled, or be pursued, it is for your teaching and health, or we be comforted, for your comfort] , either we be admonished, for your admonishing and health. Which worketh in you the suffering of the same passions, which also we suffer, 6 Whether we be troubled for your consolation, and health, (Or whether we be comforted, it is for youre comfort and salvation) which health [salvation, which salvation] sheweth her power in that ye suffer the same afflictions which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted for your consolation and health: [salvation:] 6 And whether we be afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is wrought in the enduring of the same sufferings, which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation. 6 And whether we are afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: or whether we are comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation. [is effectual: or, is wrought]
1:7 7 that our hope be firm for you; witting for as ye be fellows of passions, so ye shall be also of comfort. 7 yet our hope is steadfast for you inasmuch as we know how that as ye have your part in afflictions, so shall ye be partakers of consolation. 7 And our hope is steadfast concerning you, in as much as we know that as ye are partakers of the sufferings, so shall ye be also of the consolation. 7 And our hope of you is steadfast, knowing, that as ye are partakers of the sufferings, so shall ye be also of the consolation.
1:8 8 For, brethren, we will that ye know of our tribulation, that was done in Asia; for over measure we were grieved over might, so that it distressed us, yea, to live. [+Forsooth, brethren, we will not you to unknow of our tribulation, that was done in Asia; for over measure we were grieved above virtue, or might, so that it distressed us, yea, to live.] 8 Brethren I would not have you ignorant of our trouble, which happened unto us in Asia. For we were grieved out of measure passing strength, so greatly that we despaired even of life. 8 For brethren, we would not have you ignorant of our affliction, which came unto us in Asia, how we were pressed out of measure passing strength, so that we altogether doubted, even of life. 8 For we would not, brethren, have you ignorant of our trouble which came to us in Asia, that we were pressed out of measure, above strength, so that we despaired even of life:
1:9 9 But we in us selves had answer of death, that we trust not in us, but in God that raiseth dead men. [But we ourselves in ourselves had answer, or certainty, of death, that we be not trusting in ourselves, but in God that raiseth dead men.] 9 Also we received an answer of death in ourselves, and that was done because we should not put our trust in ourselves: but in God, which raiseth the dead to life again: 9 Yea, we received the sentence of death in ourselves, because we should not trust in ourselves, but in God, which raiseth the dead. 9 But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God who raiseth the dead: [sentence: or, answer]
1:10 10 Which delivered us, and delivereth from so great perils, into whom we hope, also yet he shall deliver, 10 [,and] Which delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver, on whom we trust, that yet hereafter he will deliver us, 10 Who delivered us from so great a death, and doeth deliver us: in whom we trust, that yet hereafter he will deliver us, 10 Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver us;
1:11 11 while also ye help in prayer for us [helping and you in prayer for us] ; that of the persons of many faces of that giving that is in us, thankings be done for us by many men to God [by many partners, graces, or thanks, be done to God for us] . 11 by the help of your prayer for us: That by the means of many occasions, thanks may be given of many on our behalf; For the grace given unto us. 11 So that ye labor together in prayer for us, that for the gift bestowed upon us for many, thanks may be given by many persons for us. 11 Ye also helping together by prayer for us, that for the gift bestowed upon us by the means of many persons thanks may be given by many on our behalf.
1:12 12 For our glory is this, the witnessing of our conscience, that in simpleness and cleanness of God, and not in fleshly wisdom, but in the grace of God, we lived in this world, but more plenteously to you. 12 Our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that we without doubleness, but [that in singleness of heart and] with godly pureness: [and] not in fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, [we] have had our conversation in the world, and most of all to you-wards. 12 For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly pureness, and not in fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God we have had our conversation in the world, and most of all towards you. [you wards.] 12 For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have conducted ourselves in the world, and more abundantly toward you.
1:13 13 And we write not other things to you, than those that ye have read and know, and I hope that into the end ye shall know, 13 We write no other things unto you, than that ye read and also know. Yea and I trust ye shall find us unto the end 13 For we write none other things unto you, than that ye read or else that ye acknowledge, and I trust that ye shall acknowledge unto the end. 13 For we write no other things to you, than what ye read or acknowledge; and I trust ye shall acknowledge even to the end;
1:14 14 as also ye have known us a part [as and ye have known us of part] ; for we be your glory, as also ye be ours in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 14 even as ye have found us partly, for we are your rejoicing, even as ye are ours in the day of the Lord Jesus. 14 Even as ye have acknowledged us partly, that we are your rejoicing, even as ye are ours, in the day of our Lord Jesus. 14 As also ye have acknowledged us in part, that we are your rejoicing, even as ye also are ours in the day of the Lord Jesus.
1:15 15 And in this trusting I would first come to you, that ye should have the second grace, 15 And in this confidence was I minded the other time to have come unto you (that ye might have had a double pleasure,) [that ye might have had yet one pleasure more] 15 And in this confidence was I minded first to come unto you, that ye might have had a double grace, 15 And in this confidence I intended to come to you before, that ye might have a second benefit; [benefit: or, grace]
1:16 16 and pass by you into Macedonia, and again from Macedonia come to you, and of you be led into Judaea. 16 and to have passed by you into Macedonia, and to have come again out of Macedonia unto you, and to have been led forth to Jewry ward of you. 16 And to pass by you into Macedonia, and to come again out of Macedonia unto you, and to be led forth toward Judea of you. 16 And to pass by you into Macedonia, and to come again from Macedonia to you, and by you to be brought on my way toward Judaea.
1:17 17 But when I would this thing, whether I used unsteadfastness, either those things that I think, I think after the flesh, that at me be, it is and it is not? [+Forsooth when I would this thing, whether I used lightness, either unsteadfastness, or those things that I think, I think after the flesh, that there be at me, is and not, or, yea and nay?] 17 When I thus wise was minded: Did I use lightness? Or think I carnally those things which I think? that with me should be yea yea, and nay nay. 17 When I therefore was thus minded, did I use lightness? or mind I those things which I mind, according to the flesh, that with me should be, Yea, yea, and Nay, nay? 17 When I therefore was thus minded, did I do it lightly? or the things that I purpose, do I purpose according to the flesh, that with me there should be yea yea, and nay nay?
1:18 18 But God is true, for our word that was at you, is and is not, is not therein, but is is in it. [+Forsooth God is true, for our word that was at you, there is not in it, yea and nay/there is not in it, is and nay, but is, that is truth, is in it.] 18 God is faithful: For our preaching {word} unto you, was not yea and nay. 18 Yea, God is faithful, that our word toward you was not Yea, and Nay. 18 But as God is true, our word toward you was not yea and nay. [word: or, preaching]
1:19 19 For why Jesus Christ, the Son of God, which is preached among you by us, by me, and Silvanus, and Timothy, there was not in him, is and is not, but is was in him [+there was not in him, is and nay, but in him was is /there was not in him, yea and nay, but yea in him was] . 19 For God's [Goddis] son Jesus Christ which was preached among you by us (that is to say {namely} by me and Silvanus and Thimotheus) was not yea and nay: but in him it was Yea: 19 For the Son of God Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us, that is, by me, and Silvanus, and Timothy, was not Yea, and Nay: but in him it was Yea. 19 For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us, even by me and Silvanus and Timothy, was not yea and nay, but in him was yea.
1:20 20 For why how many ever be promises of God, in that is, be fulfilled [Forsooth how many ever be promises of God, in him is, that is, in him they be fulfilled] . And therefore by him we say Amen to God, to our glory. 20 For all the promises of God, in him are Yea: and are in him Amen, unto the laud {laud} of God thorow us. {by us} 20 For all the promises of God in him are Yea, and are in him Amen, unto the glory of God through us. 20 For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, to the glory of God by us.
1:21 21 Soothly it is God that confirmeth us with you in Christ, and which anointed us, [The which soothly confirmeth us with you in Christ, and the which God anointed us,] 21 [For] It is God which stablisheth us and you in Christ, and hath anointed us, 21 And it is God which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us. 21 Now he who establisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God;
1:22 22 and which marked us [and that marked us] , and gave earnest of the Spirit in our hearts. 22 which hath also sealed us, and hath given the earnest of the spirit into our hearts. 22 Who hath also sealed us, and hath given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts. 22 Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.
1:23 23 For I call God to witness against my soul [Forsooth I in-call God witness into my soul] , that I sparing you came not over to Corinth; 23 I call God for a record unto my soul, that for to favor you withal, I came not any more unto Corinthum. 23 Now, I call God for a record unto my soul, that to spare you, I came not as yet unto Corinth. 23 Moreover I call God for a witness upon my soul, that to spare you I have not as yet come to Corinth.
1:24 24 not that we be lords of your faith [not for we be lords of your faith] , but we be helpers of your joy; for through belief ye stand. 24 Not that we be lords over your faith: but helpers of your joy. For by faith ye stand. 24 Not that we have dominion over your faith, but we are helpers of your joy: for by faith ye stand. 24 Not for that we have dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy: for by faith ye stand.
2:1 1 And I ordained this [same] thing at me, that I should not come again in heaviness to you [in sorrow to you] . 1 But I determined this in myself, that I would not come again to you in heaviness. 1 But I determined thus in myself, that I would not come again to you in heaviness. 1 But I determined this with myself, that I would not come again to you in heaviness.
2:2 2 For if I make you sorry, who is he that gladdeth me, but he that is sorrowful of me? 2 For if I make you sorry: who is it that should make me glad, but the same which is made sorry by me? 2 For if I make you sorry, who is he then that should make me glad, but the same which is made sorry by me? 2 For if I make you sorry, who is he then that maketh me glad, but the same who is made sorry by me?
2:3 3 And this same thing I wrote to you, that when I come, I have not sorrow on sorrow, of the which it behooved me to have joy. And I trust in you all, that my joy is of all you [+that when I shall come, I have not sorrow upon sorrow, of them of whom it behooved me to have joy. Trusting in you all, that my joy is of you all] . 3 And I wrote this same pistel unto you, lest if I came, I should take heaviness (upon heaviness) of them, of whom I ought to rejoice. Certainly this confidence have I in you all, that my joy is the joy of you all. 3 And I wrote this same thing unto you, lest when I came, I should take heaviness of them, of whom I ought to rejoice: this confidence have I in you all, that my joy is the joy of you all. 3 And I wrote this same to you, lest, when I came, I should have sorrow from them by whom I ought to rejoice; having confidence in you all, that my joy is the joy of you all.
2:4 4 For of much tribulation and anguish of heart I wrote to you by many tears, not that ye be sorry, but that ye know what charity I have more plenteously in you. 4 For in great affliction and anguish of heart I wrote unto you with many tears: not to make you sorry, but that ye might perceive the love which I have most specially unto you. 4 For in great affliction, and anguish of heart I wrote unto you with many tears: not that ye should be made sorry, but that ye might perceive the love which I have, specially unto you. 4 For out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote to you with many tears; not that ye should be grieved, but that ye might know the love which I have more abundantly to you.
2:5 5 For if any man hath made me sorrowful, he hath not made me sorrowful but a part [he hath not made me sorrowful but in part] , that I charge not you all. 5 If any man hath caused sorrow, the same hath not made me sorry: but partly, lest I should grieve you all. 5 And if any hath caused sorrow, the same hath not made me sorry, but partly (lest I should more charge him) you all. 5 But if any hath caused grief, he hath not grieved me, but in part: that I may not burden you all.
2:6 6 This blaming that is made of many, sufficeth to him, that is such one [that is such a manner man] ; 6 It is sufficient unto the same man that he was rebuked of many. 6 It is sufficient unto the same man, that he was rebuked of many. 6 Sufficient to such a man is this punishment, which was inflicted by many. [punishment: or, censure]
2:7 7 so that on the contrary ye rather forgive and comfort, lest peradventure he that is such a manner man, be swallowed up [be sopped up, or despair,] by more great heaviness. 7 So that now contrariwise ye ought to forgive him and comfort him: lest that same [person] should be swallowed up with overmuch heaviness. 7 So that now contrariwise ye ought rather to forgive him, and comfort him, lest the same should be swallowed up with overmuch heaviness. 7 So that on the contrary ye ought rather to forgive him, and comfort him, lest perhaps such an one should be swallowed up with too much sorrow.
2:8 8 For which thing I beseech you, that ye confirm charity into him. 8 Wherefore I exhort you, that love may have strength over him. {that ye shew love upon him} 8 Wherefore, I pray you, that you would confirm your love towards him. 8 Therefore I beseech you that ye would confirm your love toward him.
2:9 9 For why therefore [and] I wrote this, that I know your proof, whether in all things ye be obedient. 9 For this cause verily did I write, that I might know the proof of you, whether ye should be obedient in all things. 9 For this cause also did I write, that I might know the proof of you, whether ye would be obedient in all things. 9 For to this end also I wrote, that I might know the proof of you, whether ye are obedient in all things.
2:10 10 For to whom ye have forgiven any thing, also I have forgiven. For I, that that I forgave, if I forgave any thing, have forgiven for you in the person of Christ, 10 To whom ye forgive any thing, I forgive also. And verily if I forgive any thing, to whom I forgave it for your sakes forgave I it, in the room of Christ, 10 To whom ye forgive anything, I forgive also: for verily if I forgave anything, to whom I forgave it, for your sakes forgave I it in the sight of Christ, 10 To whom ye forgive any thing, I forgive also: for if I forgave any thing, to whom I forgave it, for your sakes I forgave it in the person of Christ; [in the person: or, in the sight]
2:11 11 that we be not deceived of Satan; for we know his thoughts. [that we be not deceived of Satan; soothly we unknow not his thoughts.] 11 lest Satan should prevent us. For his thoughts are not unknown unto us. 11 Lest Satan should circumvent us: for we are not ignorant of his enterprises. 11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.
2:12 12 But when I was come to Troas [Forsooth when I had come to Troas] for the gospel of Christ, and a door was opened to me in the Lord, 12 When I was come to Troada for Christ's [Christes] gospel's sake (and a great door was opened unto me of the Lord) 12 Furthermore, when I came to Troas to preach Christ's Gospel, and a door was opened unto me of the Lord, 12 Furthermore, when I came to Troas to preach the gospel of Christ, and a door was opened to me by the Lord,
2:13 13 I had not rest to my spirit, for I found not my brother Titus, but I said to them farewell, and I passed into Macedonia. [I had not rest in my spirit, for I found not my brother Titus, but I saying to them farewell, passed into Macedonia.] 13 I had no rest in my spirit, because I found not Titus my brother: but took my leave of them and went away into Macedonia. 13 I had no rest in my spirit, because I found not Titus my brother, but took my leave of them, and went away into Macedonia. 13 I had no rest in my spirit, because I found not Titus my brother: but taking my leave of them, I went from there into Macedonia.
2:14 14 And I do thankings to God, that evermore maketh us to have victory in Christ Jesus, and showeth by us the odour of his knowing in each place; [+Therefore be thankings to God, that ever maketh us to have victory in Christ Jesus, and showeth by us the odour, or savour / or sweetness, of his knowing in each place;] 14 Thanks be unto God which always giveth us the victory in Christ, and openeth the savor of his knowledge by us in every place. 14 Now thanks be unto God, which always maketh us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savor of his knowledge by us in every place. 14 Now thanks be to God, who always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.
2:15 15 for we be the good odour of Christ to God, among these that be made safe, and among these that perish. [for we be the good odour, or savour, of Christ to God, in these that be made safe, and in these that perish.] 15 For we are unto God the sweet savor {good favour} of Christ, both among them that are saved, and also among them which perish: 15 For we are unto God the sweet savor of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them which perish. 15 For we are to God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish:
2:16 16 To others soothly odour of death into death [Soothly to others we be odour of death into death] , but to the others we be odour of life into life. And to these things who is so able? 16 to the one part are we the savor of death unto death: [.And] unto the other part are we the savor of life unto life. And who is meet unto these things? 16 To the one we are the savor of death, unto death, and to the other the savor of life, unto life: and who is sufficient for these things? 16 To the one we are the savour of death to death; and to the other the savour of life to life. And who is sufficient for these things?
2:17 17 For we be not as many, that do adultery by the word of God, but we speak of cleanness, as of God, before God in Christ. [Soothly we be not as full many, adulterating the word of God, but of cleanness, but as of God, before God in Christ we speak.] 17 For we are not as many are which chop and change with the word of God: but as they which speak [but even out] of pureness, and as they which speak [by the power] of God [and] in the sight of God, so speak we in Christ. 17 For we are not as many, which make merchandise of the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God in the sight of God speak we in Christ. 17 For we are not as many, who corrupt the word of God: but as from sincerity, but as from God, in the sight of God we speak in Christ. [corrupt: or, deal deceitfully with] [in Christ: or, of Christ]
3:1 1 Begin we therefore again to praise us selves? or whether we need, as some men, epistles of praising to you, or of you? [Begin we again to commend, or praise, ourselves? or whether we need, as some, praising letters to you, or of you?] 1 We begin to praise ourselves again. Need we as some other of pistels of recommendation {commendation} unto you? or letters of recommendation {commendation} from you? 1 Do we begin to praise ourselves again? or need we as some other, epistles of recommendation unto you, or letters of recommendation from you? 1 Do we begin again to commend ourselves? or need we, as some others, epistles of commendation to you, or letters of commendation from you?
3:2 2 Ye be our epistle, written in our hearts, which is known and read of all men, 2 Ye are our pistel written in our hearts, which is understood and read of all men, 2 Ye are our epistle, written in our hearts, which is understood, [understand] and read of all men, 2 Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read by all men:
3:3 3 and made open [and ye be made open] , for ye be the epistle of Christ ministered of us, and written, not with ink, but by the Spirit of the living God; not in stone tables [not in stony tables] , but in fleshly tables of heart. 3 in that ye are known, how that ye are the pistel of Christ, ministered by us and written, not with ink: but with the spirit of the living God, not in tables of stone, but in fleshly tables of the heart. 3 In that ye are manifest, to be the epistle of Christ, ministered by us, and written, not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God, not in tablets of stone, but in fleshly tablets of the heart. 3 Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not on tables of stone, but on fleshly tables of the heart.
3:4 4 For we have such trust by Christ to God; 4 Such trust have we thorow Christ to Godward, 4 And such trust have we through Christ to God: 4 And such trust we have through Christ toward God:
3:5 5 not that we be sufficient to think any thing of us [selves] , as of us, but our sufficience is of God. 5 not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as it were of ourselves: but our ableness cometh of God, 5 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves, to think anything, as of ourselves: but our sufficiency is of God, 5 Not that we are sufficient by ourselves to think any thing as from ourselves; but our sufficiency is from God;
3:6 6 Which also made us able ministers of the new testament, not by letter, but by Spirit; for the letter slayeth, but the Spirit quickeneth. 6 which hath made us able to minister the new testament, not of the letter, but of the spirit: For the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life. 6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the New testament, not of the letter, but of the Spirit: for the letter killeth, but the Spirit giveth life. 6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life. [giveth life: or, quickeneth]
3:7 7 And if the ministration of death written by letter in stones [formed by letters in stones] was in glory, so that the children of Israel might not behold into the face of Moses, for the glory of his face, which is voided [+for the glory of his cheer, which glory is now voided] , 7 If the ministration of death thorow the letters figured in stones was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not {might not} behold the face of Moses for the glory of {the clearness of his} countenance (which glory nevertheless is done away) 7 If then the ministration of death written with letters and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not behold the face of Moses, for the glory of his countenance (which glory is done away.) 7 But if the ministration of death, written and engraven on stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not steadfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away:
3:8 8 how shall not the ministration of the Spirit be more in glory? 8 why {how} shall not the ministration of the spirit be much more glorious? 8 How shall not the ministration of the Spirit be more glorious? 8 How shall not the ministration of the Spirit be more glorious?
3:9 9 For if the ministration of condemnation was in glory [For why if the ministration of condemnation is in glory] , much more the ministration of rightwiseness is plenteous in glory. 9 For if the ministering of condemnation be glorious: much more doth the administration [ministration] of righteousness exceed in glory. 9 For if the ministry of condemnation was glorious, much more doeth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory. 9 For if the ministration of condemnation was glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory.
3:10 10 For neither that that was clear was glorified in this part for the excellent glory; 10 For no doubt that which was there glorified is not once glorified in respect of this exceeding glory. 10 For even that which was glorified, was not glorified in this point, that is, as touching the exceeding glory. 10 For even that which was made glorious had no glory in this respect, by reason of the glory that excelleth.
3:11 11 and if that that is voided [for why if that that is voided] , was by glory, much more that that dwelleth still is in glory. 11 Then if that which is destroyed was {done away, be} glorious, much more shall that which remaineth be glorious. 11 For if that which should be abolished, was glorious, much more shall that which remaineth, be glorious. 11 For if that which was done away was glorious, much more that which remaineth is glorious.
3:12 12 Therefore we that have such hope, use much trust; 12 Seeing then that we have such trust we use great boldness, 12 Seeing then that we have such trust, we use great boldness of speech. 12 Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech: [plainness: or, boldness]
3:13 13 and not as Moses laid a veil on his face [and not as Moses put a veil on his face] , that the children of Israel should not behold into his face, which veil is voided. 13 and do not as Moses, which put a veil over his face that the children of Israel should not see for what purpose that served which is put away. {so that the children of Israel might not see the end of it, that is done away} 13 And we are not as Moses, which put a veil upon his face, that the children of Israel should not look unto the end of that which should be abolished. 13 And not as Moses, who put a veil over his face, that the children of Israel could not steadfastly look to the end of that which is abolished:
3:14 14 But the wits of them be astonished; for [till] into this day the same veil in [the] reading of the old testament dwelleth not showed [dwelleth unshowed] , for it is voided in Christ, 14 But their minds were blinded. For until this day remaineth the same covering untaken away in the old testament when they read it, which in Christ is put away: 14 Therefore their minds are hardened: for until this day remaineth the same covering untaken away in the reading of the old Testament, which veil in Christ is put away. 14 But their minds were blinded: for until this day the same veil remaineth untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which veil is done away in Christ.
3:15 15 but [till] into this day, when Moses is read, the veil is put on their hearts [the veil is put upon their hearts] . 15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read the veil hangeth before their hearts. 15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the veil is laid over their hearts. 15 But even to this day, when Moses is read, the veil is upon their heart.
3:16 16 But when Israel shall be converted to God, the veil shall be done away. 16 Nevertheless when they turn to the Lord, the veil shall be taken away. 16 Nevertheless when their heart shall be turned to the Lord, the veil shall be taken away. 16 Nevertheless when one shall turn to the Lord, the veil shall be taken away.
3:17 17 And the Spirit is the Lord; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. [+Forsooth the Lord is a Spirit; forsooth where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty, or freedom.] 17 The Lord no doubt is a spirit. And where the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
3:18 18 And all we that with open face see the glory of the Lord, be transformed into the same image, from clearness into clearness, as of the Spirit of the Lord. [Forsooth all we with showed face beholding the glory of the Lord, be transformed into the same image, from clearness to clearness, as of the Spirit of the Lord.] 18 And now the Lord's glory appeareth in us all, as in a glass: [But we all behold the glory of the Lord with his face open] and we are [weare] changed unto the same similitude, from glory to glory, {same image, from one clearness to another} even of the Lord which is a spirit. [even of the spirit of the Lord.] 18 But we all behold as in a mirror the glory of the Lord with open face, and are changed into the same image, from glory to glory, as by the Spirit of the Lord. 18 But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. [by the...: or, of the Lord the Spirit]
4:1 1 Therefore we that have this administration [Therefore we having this administration, or office] , after this that we have gotten mercy, fail we not, 1 Therefore seeing that we have such an office, even as mercy is come on us, we faint not: 1 Therefore, seeing that we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not: 1 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;
4:2 2 but do we away the privy things of shame, not walking in subtle guile, neither doing adultery by the word of God, but in showing of the truth commending us selves to each conscience of men before God. [but do away the privy things of shame, not walking in subtle guile, neither adulterating the word of God, but in showing of the truth commending ourselves to each conscience of men before God.] 2 but have cast from us the cloaks of unhonesty, and walk not in craftiness, neither corrupt we the word of God: but walk in open truth, and report ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God. 2 But have cast from us the cloaks of shame, and walk not in craftiness, neither handle we the word of God deceitfully: but in declaration of the truth we approve ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God. 2 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God. [dishonesty: Gr. shame]
4:3 3 For if also our gospel is covered, or hid, in these that perish it is covered; 3 If our Gospell be yet hid, it is hid among them that are lost, 3 If our Gospel be then hid, it is hid to them that are lost. 3 But if our gospel is hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
4:4 4 in which [the] god of this world, that is, the devil, hath blinded the souls of unfaithful men, [original: in which God hath blent the soulis of unfeithful men of this world] that the lightening of the gospel of the glory of Christ, which is the image of God, shine not. [+in which the god of this world, that is, the devil, or pride, hath blinded the souls of men out of belief, or unfaithful men, that the lighting of the gospel of the glory of Christ, that is the image of God, shine not.] 4 in whom the God of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest should shine unto them the light of the glorious gospel [gospell] of Christ, {Gospell of the glory of Christ} which is the image of God, 4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds, that is, of the infidels, that the light of the glorious Gospel of Christ, which is the image of God, should not shine unto them. 4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them who believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.
4:5 5 But we preach not us selves, but our Lord Jesus Christ [Soothly we preach not ourselves, but Jesus Christ our Lord] ; and us your servants by Jesus. 5 for we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus [to be] the Lord, and preach ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake. 5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord, and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake. 5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake.
4:6 6 For God, that said [the] light to shine of darknesses, he hath given light in our hearts, to the lightening of the science of the clearness of God [he hath enlightened in our hearts, to the illumining of the science of the clearness of God] , in the face of Jesus Christ. 6 For it is God that commanded the light to shine out of darkness, which hath shined in our hearts, {hath given a clear shine in our hearts} for to give the light of knowledge of the glorious God, [the light of the knowledge of the glory of God] in the face of Jesus Christ. 6 For God that commanded the light to shine out of darkness, is he which hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. 6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shone into our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. [hath: Gr. is he who hath]
4:7 7 And we have this treasure in brittle vessels, that the worthiness be of God's virtue [that the highness be of Godís virtue] , and not of us. 7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels that the excellent power of it {that the power which excelleth} might appear to be of God, and not of us. 7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of that power might be of God, and not of us. 7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not from us.
4:8 8 In all things we suffer tribulation, but we be not anguished, or distressed; we be made poor, but we lack nothing; [+In all things we suffer tribulation, but we be not made strait/but we be not anguished thereby in soul; we be made poor, but we be not destitute, either cast away;] 8 We are troubled on every side, yet are we not without shift. We are in poverty: but not utterly without somewhat. 8 We are afflicted on every side, yet are we not in distress: we are in doubt, but yet we despair not. [in poverty, but not overcome of poverty.] 8 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; [in despair: or, altogether without help, or, means]
4:9 9 we suffer persecution, but we be not forsaken; we be made low, but we be not confounded; we be cast down, but we perish not. 9 We are persecuted: but are not forsaken. We are cast down: {oppressed} nevertheless we perish not. 9 We are persecuted, but not forsaken: cast down, but we perish not. 9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;
4:10 10 And evermore we bear about the slaying of Jesus in our body [Evermore bearing about the mortifying of Jesus Christ in our body] , that also the life of Jesus be showed in our bodies. 10 And we always bear in our bodies the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesu might appear in our bodies. 10 Everywhere we bear about in our body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus might also be made manifest in our bodies. 10 Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus may be made manifest in our body.
4:11 11 For evermore we that live, be taken into death for Jesus, that [and] the life of Jesus be showed in our deadly flesh. 11 For we which live, are always delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesu might appear in our mortal flesh. 11 For we which live, are always delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh. 11 For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus may be made manifest in our mortal flesh.
4:12 12 Therefore death worketh in us, but life in you. 12 So then death worketh in us, and life in you. 12 So then death worketh in us, and life in you. 12 So then death worketh in us, but life in you.
4:13 13 And we have the same spirit of faith [Forsooth having the same spirit of faith] , as it is written, I have believed, wherefore I have spoken; and we believe, wherefore also we speak; 13 Seeing then that we have the same spirit of faith, according as it is written (I believed and therefore have I spoken) we also believe, and therefore speak. 13 And because we have the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken, we also believe, and therefore speak, 13 We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;
4:14 14 witting that he that raised Jesus, shall raise up also us with Jesus, and shall ordain [us] with you. 14 For we know that he which raised up the Lord Jesus, shall raise up us also by the means of Jesus, and shall set us with you, 14 Knowing that he which hath raised up the Lord Jesus, shall raise us up also by Jesus, and shall set us with you. 14 Knowing that he who raised the Lord Jesus shall raise us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you.
4:15 15 And all things [be done] for you, that a plenteous grace by many thankings be plenteous into the glory of God. [Soothly all things be done for you, that grace being plenteous by many in doing of thanks be plenteous into glory of God.] 15 for all things I do for your sakes, that the plenteous grace by thanks given {thanksgiving} of many, may redound to the praise of God. 15 For all things are for your sakes, that the most plenteous grace by the thanksgiving of many, may redound to the praise of God. 15 For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace may through the thanksgiving of many abound to the glory of God.
4:16 16 For which thing we fail not, for though [but though] our outer man be corrupted; nevertheless the inner man is renewed from day to day. 16 Wherefore we are not wearied, but though our outward man perish, {be corrupt} yet the inward man is renewed day by day. 16 Therefore we faint not, but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed daily. 16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.
4:17 17 But that light thing [light, or easy, thing] of our tribulation that lasteth now, but as it were by a moment, worketh in us over measure an everlasting burden into the highness of glory [worketh over manner, or measure, into highness the everlasting weight of glory in us] ; 17 For our exceeding tribulation, which is momentary {temporal} and light, prepareth {worketh} an exceeding, and eternal weight of glory unto us, 17 For our light affliction which is but for a moment, causeth unto us a far most excellent and an eternal weight of glory: 17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh out for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
4:18 18 while that we behold not those things that be seen, but those [things] that be not seen. For those things that be seen, be but during for a short time; but those things that be not seen, be everlasting [+Soothly those things that be seen, be temporal, or during but short time; forsooth those things that be not seen, be eternal, or everlasting] . 18 while we look not on the things which are seen, but on the things which are not seen. For things which are seen, are temporal: but things which are not seen are eternal. 18 While we look not on the things which are seen, but on the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen, are temporal: but the things which are not seen, are eternal. 18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
5:1 1 And we know, that if our earthly house of this dwelling be dissolved, that we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, everlasting in heavens. 1 We know surely if our earthy mansion wherein we now dwell {house of this dwelling} were destroyed, that we have a building ordained of God, an habitation not made with hands, but eternal in heaven: 1 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle be destroyed, we have a building given of God, that is, an house not made with hands, but eternal in the heavens. 1 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
5:2 2 For why in this thing we mourn, coveting to be clothed above with our dwelling, which is of heaven; 2 And herefore sigh we, desiring to be clothed with our mansion which is from heaven: 2 For therefore we sigh, desiring to be clothed with our house, which is from heaven. 2 For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our house which is from heaven:
5:3 3 if nevertheless we be found clothed, and not naked. 3 [so yet] if it happen that we be found clothed, and not naked. 3 Because that if we be clothed, we shall not be found naked. 3 If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.
5:4 4 For why we that be in this tabernacle, sorrow within, and be heavied [grieved] , for that we will not be spoiled, but be clothed above; that that thing that is deadly, be swallowed up of life [+for that we will not be despoiled, but clothed above; that that thing that is deadly, be sopped up of life] . 4 For as long as we are in this tabernacle, we sigh and are grieved: for we would {had rather} not be unclothed: but would be clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life. 4 For indeed we that are in this tabernacle, sigh and are burdened, because we would not be unclothed, but would be clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life. 4 For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not because we would be unclothed, but clothed, that mortality might be swallowed up in life.
5:5 5 But who is it that maketh us into this same thing? God, that gave to us the earnest of the Spirit. [Forsooth he that maketh us into this same thing, is God, that gave to us the earnest of Spirit.] 5 He that hath ordained us for this thing, is God: which very same hath given unto us the earnest of the spirit. 5 And he that hath created us for this thing, is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit. 5 Now he that hath wrought us for this very thing is God, who also hath given to us the earnest of the Spirit.
5:6 6 Therefore we be hardy always, and know that the while we be in this body, we go in pilgrimage from the Lord; [+Therefore we be hardy all-gates, and knowing for the while we be in this body, we go in pilgrimage from the Lord;] 6 [Therefore] We are alway of good cheer, and know well that as long as we are at home {dwell here} in the body we are absent from God. {not at home with the LORDE} 6 Therefore we are alway bold, though we know that while [whiles] we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord. 6 Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, while we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:
5:7 7 for we walk by faith, and not by clear sight. 7 For we walk in faith and see not. {see him not} 7 (For we walk by faith, and not by sight.) 7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)
5:8 8 But we be hardy [Forsooth we be hardy] , and have good will, more to be in pilgrimage from the body, and to be present to God. 8 Nevertheless we are of good comfort, and had lever to be absent from the body and to be present {at home} with God. [the Lord.] 8 Nevertheless, we are bold, and love rather to remove out of the body, and to dwell with the Lord. 8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.
5:9 9 And therefore we strive, whether absent, whether present, to please him. 9 Wherefore we endeavor ourselves, whether we be at home or from home, to please God. [Wherefore, whether we be at home or from home we endeavor our selves to please him.] 9 Wherefore also we covet, that both dwelling at home, and removing from home, we may be acceptable to him. 9 Therefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted by him. [labour: or, endeavour]
5:10 10 For it behooveth us all to be showed before the throne of Christ, that every man tell the proper things of the body [+that every man receive the proper things of the body] , as he hath done, either good, either evil. 10 For we must all be brought [appear] before the judgement seat of Christ that every man {one} may receive the works of his body according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad? 10 For we must all appear before the judgement seat of Christ, that every man may receive the things which are done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or evil. 10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to what he hath done, whether good or bad.
5:11 11 Therefore we witting the dread of the Lord, counsel men, for to God we be open; and I hope, that we be open also in your consciences. 11 Seeing then that we know how the Lord is to be feared, we fare fair with men. For we are known well enough unto God. I trust also that we are known in your consciences. 11 Knowing therefore that [the] terror of the Lord, we persuade men, and we are made manifest unto God, and I trust also that we are made manifest in your consciences. 11 Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest to God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences.
5:12 12 We commend not us selves again to you, but we give to you occasion to have glory for us [We commend not ourselves again to you, but we give to you occasion to glory for us] , that ye have [understanding] to them that glory in the face, and not in the heart. 12 We praise not ourselves again unto you, but give you an occasion to rejoice of us, that ye may have somewhat against them, which rejoice in the face, {after the outward appearance} and not in {after} the heart. 12 For we praise not ourselves again unto you, but give you an occasion to rejoice of us, that ye may have to answer against them, which rejoice in the face, and not in the heart. 12 For we commend not ourselves again to you, but give you occasion to glory on our behalf, that ye may have somewhat to answer them who glory in appearance, and not in heart. [in appearance: Gr. in the face]
5:13 13 For either we by mind pass to God, either we be sober to you. [Soothly whether we by mind, or reason, pass it is to God, whether we be sober it is to you?] 13 For if we be too fervent, to God are we to [too] fervent: if we keep measure, for your cause {sakes} keep we measure. 13 For whether we be out of our wit, we are it to God: or whether we be in our right mind, we are it unto you. 13 For whether we are beside ourselves, it is to God: or whether we are of sound mind, it is for your cause.
5:14 14 For the charity of Christ driveth us; guessing this thing [guessing, or deeming, this thing] , that if one died for all, then all were dead. 14 For the love of Christ constraineth us, because {inasmuch as} we thus judge, if one be dead for all, that then are all dead, 14 For that [the] love of Christ constraineth us: Because we thus judge, that if one be dead for all, then were all dead, 14 For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:
5:15 15 And Christ died for all, that they that live, live not now to themselves, but to him that died for them, and rose again. 15 and that he died for all, because that they which live, should not henceforth live unto themselves: but unto him which died for them and rose again. 15 and he died for all, that they which live, should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again. 15 And that he died for all, that they who live should not henceforth live to themselves, but to him who died for them, and rose again.
5:16 16 Therefore we from this time know no man after the flesh; though we (have) known Christ after the flesh [And so we from this time have known no man after the flesh; and if we knew Christ after the flesh] , but [right] now we know not. 16 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh. Insomuch that though we have known Christ after the flesh, now henceforth know we him so no more. 16 Wherefore, henceforth know we no man after the flesh, yea though we had known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more. 16 Therefore henceforth we know no man according to the flesh: though indeed, we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now henceforth we know him no more.
5:17 17 Therefore if any new creature is in Christ, the old things be passed [old things have passed] . Lo! all things be made new, 17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature. Old things are passed away, behold all things are become new. 17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, let him be a new creature. Old things are passed away: behold, all things are become new. 17 Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creation: old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. [he is: or, let him be]
5:18 18 and all things be of God, which reconciled us to him by Christ, and gave to us the service of reconciling [and gave to us the ministry, or service, of reconciling] . 18 Nevertheless all things are of God, which hath reconciled us unto himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given unto us the office to preach the atonement. 18 And all things are of God, which hath reconciled us unto himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given unto us the ministry of reconciliation. 18 And all things are from God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
5:19 19 And God was in Christ [Soothly, for God was in Christ] , reconciling to him the world, not reckoning to them their guilts, and putted in us the word of reconciling [and put in us the word of reconciling] . 19 For God was in Christ, and made agreement between the world and him self, and imputed not their sins unto them: and hath committed to us the preaching of the atonement. {and reconciled the world unto himself, and counted not their sins unto them, and among us hath he set up the word of the atonement} 19 For God was in Christ, and reconciled the world to himself, not imputing their sins unto them, and hath committed to us the word of reconciliation. 19 That is, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, not imputing their trespasses to them; and hath committed to us the word of reconciliation. [committed...: Gr. put in us]
5:20 20 Therefore we use message for Christ [Therefore we be set in legacy, or message, for Christ] , as if God admonisheth by us; we beseech you for Christ, be ye reconciled to God. 20 Now then are we messengers in the room of Christ: even as though God did beseech you thorow us: {exhorted by us} So pray we you {We beseek you now therefore} in Christ's [Christes] stead, that ye be at one with God: 20 Now then are we ambassadors for Christ: as though God did beseech you through us, we pray you in Christ's stead, that ye be reconciled to God. 20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.
5:21 21 God the Father made him sin for us, which knew not sin, that we should be made [the] rightwiseness of God in him. 21 for he hath made him to be sin for us, which knew no sin, that we by his means should be that righteousness which before God is allowed. [aloved] 21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, which knew no sin, that we should be made the righteousness of God in him. 21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
6:1 1 But we helping [you in work and word] admonish [you] , that ye receive not the grace of God in vain. 1 We as helpers therefore exhort you, that ye receive not the grace of God in vain. 1 So we therefore as workers together beseech you, that ye receive not the grace of God in vain. 1 We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain.
6:2 2 For he saith, In time well pleasing I have heard thee [In time accepted, or well pleasing, I have heard thee] , and in the day of health I have helped thee. Lo! now a time acceptable, lo! now a day of health. 2 For he saith: I have heard thee in a time accepted: and in the day of health, [salvation] have I succoured thee. Behold now is that well accepted time: behold now is the day of health. [salvation.] 2 For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succored thee: behold now the accepted time, behold now the day of salvation. 2 (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I helped thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)
6:3 3 Give we to no man any offence, that our service be not reproved; [To no man giving any offence, or hurting, that our ministry, or service, be not reproved;] 3 Let us give no man occasion of evil, that in our office be found no fault: {no evil spoken of} 3 We give no occasion of offence in anything, that our ministry should not be reprehended. 3 Giving no offence in any thing, that the ministry be not blamed:
6:4 4 but in all things give we us selves [but in all things give we ourselves] as the ministers of God, in much patience, in tribulations, in needs, in anguishes, 4 but in all things let us behave ourselves as the ministers of God. In much patience, in afflictions, in necessity, in anguish, 4 But in all things we approve ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses, 4 But in all things commending ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses, [approving: Gr. commending]

6:8 8 by glory and unnobleness [by glory and unnobility] ; by evil fame and good fame; as deceivers, and true men; 8 in honour and dishonour, in evil report and good report, as deceivers and yet true, 8 By honor, and dishonor, by evil report, and good report, as deceivers, and yet true: 8 By honour and dishonour, by bad report and good report: as deceivers, and yet true;
6:9 9 as they that be unknown and known; as men dying, and lo! we live; as chastised, and not made dead; 9 as unknown, and yet known: as dying and behold we yet live: as chastened and not killed: 9 As unknown, and yet known: as dying, and behold, we live: as chastened, and yet not killed: 9 As unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and, behold, we live; as chastened, and not killed;
6:10 10 as sorrowful, and evermore joying; as having need, but making many men rich [as sorrowful, but evermore joying; as needy men, soothly making many rich] ; as nothing having, and wielding all things. 10 as sorrowing and yet alway merry: as poor and yet make many rich: as having no thing and yet possessing all things. 10 As sorrowing, and yet alway rejoicing: as poor, and yet make many rich: as having nothing, and yet possessing all things. 10 As sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.
6:11 11 A! ye Corinthians [O! ye Corinthians] , our mouth is open to you, our heart is alarged; 11 O ye Corinthians, our mouth is open unto you. Our heart is made large: 11 O Corinthians, our mouth is open unto you: our heart is made large. 11 O ye Corinthians, We have spoken openly to you, our heart is wide open.
6:12 12 ye be not anguished in us, but ye be anguished in your inwardnesses. [+ye be not made strait in us, but ye be made strait, or be ye anguished, in your entrails.] 12 ye are not brought into cumbrance by us, though that ye vex yourselves of a true meaning. [ye are in no strayte in us, but are in a strayte in your awne bowelles:] {Ye are in no straitness on our behalf: but where as ye are in straitness, that do ye of your own heartely meaning} 12 Ye are not kept strait in us, but ye are kept strait in your own bowels. 12 Ye are not restrained by us, but ye are restrained by your own affections.
6:13 13 And I say as to sons, ye that have the same reward, be ye alarged. [Forsooth, we having the same reward, I say as to sons, and be ye alarged.] 13 I speak unto you as unto children, which {that} have like reward with us: [I promise you like reward with me, as to my children.] 13 Now for the same recompense, I speak as to my children, Be you also enlarged. 13 Now in return for the same, (I speak as to my children,) open wide your hearts to us.
6:14 14 Do not ye bear the yoke with unfaithful men. For what parting of rightwiseness with wickedness [Soothly what parting, or communing, of rightwiseness with wickedness] ? or what fellowship of light to darknesses? 14 Stretch yourselves therefore out; bear not the yoke with the unbelievers. [Set your selves therefore at large, and bear not a strangers yoke with the unbelievers] For what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? What company hath light with darkness? 14 Be not unequally yoked with the infidels: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
6:15 15 and what according of Christ to Belial? or what part of a faithful [man] with the unfaithful [or heathen] ? 15 What concord hath {How agreeth} Christ with beliall? Either {Or} what part hath he that believeth {the believer} with an infidel? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath the believer with the infidel? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
6:16 16 and what consent to the temple of God with maumets? And ye be the temple of the living God, as the Lord saith, For I shall dwell in them, and I shall walk among them; and I shall be [the] God of them, and they shall be a people to me. [but what consent to the temple of God with idols? Forsooth ye be the temple of quick God, as the Lord saith, For I shall dwell in them, and I shall walk in; and I shall be the God of them, and they shall be to me a people.] 16 how agreeth {accordeth} the temple of God with images? And ye are the temple of the living God, as said God: I will dwell among them, and walk among them, and will be their God: and they shall be my people. 16 And what agreement hath the Temple of God with idols? for ye are the Temple of the living God: as God hath said, I will dwell among them, and walk there: and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
6:17 17 For which thing go ye out of the middle of them, and be ye separated [and be ye parted] , saith the Lord, and touch not unclean thing; and I shall receive you, 17 Wherefore come out from among them, and separate yourselves (saith the Lord) and touch none unclean thing: so will I receive you, 17 Wherefore come out from among them, and separate yourselves, saith the Lord, and touch none unclean thing, and I will receive you. 17 Therefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
6:18 18 and I shall be to you into a Father, and ye shall be to me into sons and daughters, saith the Lord almighty. 18 and will be a father unto you, and ye shall be unto me sons and daughters, saith the Lord almighty. 18 And I will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord almighty. 18 And I will be a Father to you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
7:1 1 Therefore, most dear-worthy brethren, we that have these promises, cleanse we us from all filth of the flesh and of the spirit, doing holiness in the dread of God. [+Therefore, most dear-worthy, we having these promises, cleanse we us from all filth of flesh and spirit, perfectly making hallowing in the dread of God.] 1 Seeing that we have such promises dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, and grow up to full holiness in the fear of God. 1 Seeing then we have these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, and finish our sanctification [grow up unto full holiness] in the fear of God. 1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
7:2 2 Take ye us; we have hurt no man, we have impaired no man [we have corrupted no man] , we have beguiled no man. 2 Understand us: {Understand us right} we have hurt no man: we have corrupted no man: we have defrauded no man. 2 Receive us: we have done wrong to no man: we have corrupted [consumed] no man: we have defrauded no man. 2 Receive us; we have wronged no man, we have corrupted no man, we have defrauded no man.
7:3 3 I say not to your condemning; for I said before, that ye be in our hearts, to die together and to live together [to die together, and live together] . 3 I speak not this to condemn you: for I have shewed you before that ye are in our hearts to die and live with you. 3 I speak it not to your condemnation: for I have said before, that ye are in our hearts, to die and live together. 3 I speak not this to condemn you: for I have said before, that ye are in our hearts to die and live with you.
7:4 4 Much trust is to me with you, much glorying is to me for you. I am filled with comfort, I am plenteous [I abound, or am plenteous,] in joy in all our tribulation. 4 I am very bold over {toward} you, and rejoice greatly in you. {make much boast of you} I am filled with comfort, my joy exceeding [and am joyous] in all our tribulations. 4 I use great boldness of speech toward you: I rejoice greatly in you: I am filled with comfort, and am exceeding joyous in all our tribulation. 4 Great is my boldness of speech toward you, great is my glorying concerning you: I am filled with comfort, I am exceeding joyful in all our tribulation.
7:5 5 For when we were come to Macedonia, our flesh had no rest, but we suffered all tribulation; withoutforth fightings, and dreads [were] within [forsooth withoutforth, fightings, withinforth, dreads] . 5 For when we were come into Macedonia, our flesh had no rest, but we were troubled on every side: Outward was fighting, inward was fear. 5 For when we were come into Macedonia, our flesh had no rest, but we were troubled on every side, fightings without, and terrors within. 5 For, when we had come into Macedonia, our flesh had no rest, but we were troubled on every side; without were fightings, within were fears.
7:6 6 But God that comforteth meek men, comforted us in the coming of Titus. 6 Nevertheless he [God] that comforteth the abject, comforted us at the coming of Titus. 6 But God, that comforteth the abject, comforted us at the coming of Titus: 6 Nevertheless God, that comforteth those that are cast down, comforted us by the coming of Titus;
7:7 7 And not only in the coming of him, but also in the comfort by which he was comforted in you, telling to us your desire, your weeping, your love for me, so that I joyed more. 7 And not with his coming only: but also with the consolation wherewith he was comforted of you. For he told us your desire, your mourning, {weeping} your fervent mind to me ward: So that I now rejoice the more. 7 And not by his coming only, but also by the consolation wherewith he was comforted of you, when he told us your great desire, your mourning, your fervent mind toward me, [meward,] so that I rejoiced much more. 7 And not by his coming only, but by the consolation with which he was comforted in you, when he told us your earnest desire, your mourning, your fervent mind toward me; so that I rejoiced the more.
7:8 8 For though I made you sorry in an epistle, it rueth me not; though it rued, [I] seeing that though that epistle made you sorry at an hour, 8 Wherefore though I made you sorry with a letter I repent not: though I did repent. For I perceive that that same Epistle made you sorry though it were but for a season. 8 For though I made you sorry with a letter, I repent not, though I did repent: for I perceive that the same epistle made you sorry, though it were but for a season. 8 For though I made you sorry with a letter, I do not repent, though I did repent: for I perceive that the same epistle hath made you sorry, though it was but for a season.
7:9 9 now I have joy; not for ye were made sorrowful [not for ye were made sorry] , but for ye were made sorrowful to penance. For why ye be made sorry after God, that in nothing ye suffer impairment of us. 9 But I now rejoice, not that ye were sorry, but that ye so sorrowed, that ye repented. 9 I now rejoice, not that ye were sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance: for ye sorrowed godly, so that in nothing ye were hurt by us. 9 Now I rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance: for ye were made sorry after a godly manner, that ye might suffer loss through us in nothing. [after...: or, according to God]
7:10 10 For the sorrow that is after God, worketh penance into steadfast health; but sorrow of the world worketh death. 10 For ye sorrowed godly: so that in nothing were ye hurt by us. For godly sorrow causeth repentance unto health, [salvation] not to be repented of: when worldly sorrow causeth death. 10 For godly sorrow causeth repentance unto salvation, not to be repented of: but the worldly sorrow causeth death. 10 For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.
7:11 11 For lo! this same thing, that ye be sorrowful after God, how much busyness it worketh in you; but defending, but indignation, but dread, but desire, but love, but vengeance. In all things ye have given yourselves to be undefouled in the cause. 11 Behold what diligence this godly sorrow that ye took hath wrought in you: yea it caused you to clear yourselves. It caused indignation, {Yee a sufficient answer, displeasure} it caused fear, it caused desire, it caused a fervent mind, it caused punishment. For in all things ye have shewed yourselves that ye were clear in that business. [matter.] 11 For behold, this thing that ye have been godly sorry, what great care it hath wrought in you: yea, what clearing of yourselves: yea, what indignation: yea, what fear: yea, how great desire: yea, what a zeal: yea, what revenge: [punishment] in all things ye have shewed yourselves, that ye are pure in this matter. 11 For behold this very same thing, that ye sorrowed after a godly sort, what diligence it wrought in you, yea, what clearing of yourselves, yea, what indignation, yea, what fear, yea, what vehement desire, yea, what zeal, yea, what avenging of wrong! In all things ye have proved yourselves to be clear in this matter.
7:12 12 Therefore though I wrote to you, I wrote not for him that did the injury, neither for him that suffered, but to show our busyness, which we have for you before God. 12 Wherefore though I have written [wrote] unto you, I did it not for his cause that did hurt, neither for his cause that was hurt: but that our good mind which we have toward you {your diligence which ye have for us} in the sight of God, might appear unto you. {might be manifest with you} 12 Wherefore, though I wrote unto you, I did not it for his cause that had done the wrong, neither for his cause that had the injury, but that our care toward you in the sight of God might appear unto you. 12 Therefore, though I wrote to you, I did it not for his cause that had done the wrong, nor for his cause that suffered wrong, but that our care for you in the sight of God might appear to you.
7:13 13 Therefore we be comforted, but in your comfort more plenteously we joyed more on the joy of Titus, for his spirit is fulfilled of all you. 13 Therefore we are comforted, because ye are comforted: yea and exceedingly the more joyed we, for the joy that Titus had: because his spirit was refreshed of you all. 13 Therefore we were comforted, because ye were comforted: but rather we rejoiced much more for the joy of Titus, because his spirit was refreshed by you all. 13 Therefore we were comforted in your comfort: and exceedingly the more we rejoiced for the joy of Titus, because his spirit was refreshed by you all.
7:14 14 And if I gloried any thing with him of you, I am not confounded [I am not confounded, or shamed] ; but as we have spoken to you all things [in truth] , so also our glory that was at Titus, is made truth. 14 I am therefore not now ashamed, though I boasted myself to him of you. For as all things which I preached unto you are true, even so is our boasting, that I boasted myself to Titus withal, found true. 14 For if that I have boasted anything to him of you, I have not been ashamed: but as I have spoken unto you all things in truth, even so our boasting unto Titus was true. 14 For if I have boasted any thing to him concerning you, I am not ashamed; but as we spoke all things to you in truth, even so our boasting, which I made before Titus, is found to be true.
7:15 15 And the inwardness of him be more plenteously in you [And the entrails of him be more plenteous in you] , which hath in mind the obedience of you all, how with dread and trembling ye received him. 15 And now is his inward affection more abundant toward you, when he remembereth the obedience of every one of you: how with fear and trembling ye received him. 15 And his inward affection is more abundant toward you, when he remembereth the obedience of you all, and how with fear and trembling ye received him. 15 And his affection is more abundant toward you, while he remembereth the obedience of you all, how with fear and trembling ye received him. [inward...: Gr. bowels]
7:16 16 I have joy, that in all things I trust in you. [I joy, that in all things I trust in you.] 16 I rejoice that I may be bold over you in all things. 16 I rejoice therefore that I may put my confidence in you in all things. 16 I rejoice therefore that I have confidence in you in all things.
8:1 1 But, brethren, we make known to you the grace of God, that is given in the churches of Macedonia, 1 I do you to wit brethren of the grace of God, which is given in the congregations of Macedonia, 1 We do you also to wit, brethren, of the grace of God bestowed upon the Churches of Macedonia, 1 Moreover, brethren, we make known to you the grace of God bestowed on the churches of Macedonia;
8:2 2 that in much assaying of tribulation, the plenty of the joy of them was [the abundance, or plenty, of the joy of them was] , and the highest poverty of them was plenteous into the riches of the simpleness of them. 2 how that the abundance of their rejoicing is, that they are tried with much tribulation. And how that their poverty, though it be deep, yet hath followed over, and is be come unto them riches in singleness. [And thereto though they were exceeding poor, yet have they given exceeding richly, and that in singleness.] 2 Because in great trial of affliction their joy abounded, and their most extreme poverty abounded unto their rich liberality. 2 That in a great trial of affliction the abundance of their joy and their deep poverty abounded to the riches of their liberality. [liberality: Gr. simplicity]
8:3 3 For I bear witnessing to them, after might and above might they were willful [after virtue, or power, and above virtue they were willful] , 3 For to their powers (I bear them record) yea and beyond their power, they were willing of their own accord, 3 For to their power (I bear record) yea, and beyond their power, they were willing, 3 For to their power, I bear witness, and even beyond their power they were willing of themselves;
8:4 4 with much admonishing beseeching us the grace and the communing of [the] ministering, that is made to holy men. 4 and prayed us with great instance, that we would receive their benefit, and suffer them to be partakers with other [others] in ministering to the saints. {and fellowship of the handdreaching that is done for the saints} 4 And prayed us with great instance that we would receive the grace, and the fellowship of the ministering which is toward the Saints. 4 Begging us with much entreaty that we would receive the gift, and take upon us the fellowship of the ministering to the saints.
8:5 5 And not as we hoped, but they gave themselves first to the Lord, afterward to us by the will of God. 5 And this they did, not as we looked for: but gave their own selves first to the Lord, and after unto us by the will of God: 5 And this they did, not as we looked for: but gave their ownselves, first to the Lord, and after unto us by the will of God, 5 And this they did, not as we hoped, but first gave their own selves to the Lord, and to us by the will of God.
8:6 6 So that we prayed Titus, that as he began, so also he perform in you this grace. 6 so that we could not but desire Titus to accomplish the same benevolence among you also, even as he had begun. 6 That we should exhort Titus, that as he had begun, so he would also accomplish the same grace among you also. 6 So that we urged Titus, that as he had begun, so he would also finish in you the same grace also. [grace: or, gift]
8:7 7 But as ye abound in all things, in faith, and word, and knowing [and science, or knowing] , and all busyness, moreover and in your charity into us, that also in this grace ye abound. 7 Now therefore, as ye are rich in all parts, in faith, in word, in knowledge, in all ferventness, {diligence} and in love, which ye have to us: even so see that ye be plenteous in this benevolence. 7 Therefore, as ye abound in everything, in faith and word, and knowledge, and in all diligence, and in your love towards us, even so see that ye abound in this grace also. 7 Therefore, as ye abound in every thing, in faith, and utterance, and knowledge, and in all diligence, and in your love to us, see that ye abound in this grace also.
8:8 8 I say not as commanding, but by the busyness of other men proving also the good wit of your charity. 8 This say I not as commanding: but because other [others] are so fervent, {diligent} therefore prove I your love, whether it be perfect or no. 8 This say I not by commandment, but because of the diligence of others: therefore prove I the naturalness of your love. 8 I speak not by commandment, but by occasion of the diligence of others, and to prove the sincerity of your love.
8:9 9 And ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, for he was made needy for you, when he was rich, that ye should be made rich by his neediness [that ye should be made rich by his mis-ease, or neediness] . 9 Ye know the liberality of our Lord Jesus Christ, which though he were rich, yet for your sakes became poor: that ye thorow his poverty might be made rich. 9 For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that he being rich, for your sakes became poor, that ye through his poverty might be made rich. 9 For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.
8:10 10 And I give counsel in this thing; for this is profitable to you, that not only have begun to do, but also ye began to have will from the former year [but and to desire from the former year] . 10 And I give counsel hereto: For this is expedient {profitable} for you, which began, not to do only: but also to will, a year ago. 10 And I shew my mind herein: for this is expedient for you, which have begun not to do only, but also to will, a year ago. 10 And in this I give my advice: for this is expedient for you, who have begun before, not only to do, but also to be willing a year ago. [forward: Gr. willing]
8:11 11 But now [Now forsooth] perform ye in deed, that as the discretion of will is ready [to desire good] , so be it also of performing of that that ye have. 11 Now therefore perform the deed, that as there was in you a readiness {ready mind} to will, even so ye may perform the deed, of that which ye have. 11 Now therefore perform to do it also, that as there was a readiness to will, even so ye may perform it of that which ye have. 11 Now therefore finish the doing of it; that as there was a readiness to will, so there may be a performance also out of that which ye have.
8:12 12 For if the will be ready, it is accepted after that that it hath, not after that that it hath not. 12 For if there be first a willing mind, it is accepted according to that a man hath, and not according to that he hath not. 12 For if there be first a willing mind, it is accepted according to that a man hath, and not according to that he hath not. 12 For if there is first a willing mind, it is accepted according to what a man hath, and not according to what he hath not.
8:13 13 And not that it be remission to other men [+Forsooth not that it be remission, or idleness / or sloth, to other men] , and to you tribulation; 13 It is not my mind {not done to the intent} that other be set at ease, and ye brought into cumbrance: but that there be egalness. {but that it be a like} [now at this time,] 13 Neither is it that other men should be eased and you grieved: 13 For I mean not that other men should be eased, and you burdened:
8:14 14 but of evenness in the present time your abundance fulfill the need of them, that also the abundance of them be a fulfilling of your need, that evenness be made; [but of evenness, in this present time your abundance fulfill the mis-ease of them, that and the abundance of them be supplement, or fulfilling, of your mis-ease, or need, that evenness be made;] 14 Let [that] your abundance succour their lack at this present time of dearth: that their abundance may supply your lack: that there may be equality, 14 But upon like condition, at this time your abundance supplieth their lack: That also their abundance may be for your lack, that there may be equality: 14 But by an equality, that now at this time your abundance may be a supply for their want, that their abundance also may be a supply for your want: that there may be equality:
8:15 15 as it is written, He that [hath] gathered much, was not increased, and he that [had] gathered little, had not less. 15 agreeing to that which is written: He that gathered much had never the more abundance, and he that gathered little, had nevertheless. {He that gathered much, had not the more: and he that gathered little, wanted nothing} 15 As it is written, He that gathered much, had nothing over, and he that gathered little, had not the less. 15 As it is written, He that had gathered much had nothing over; and he that had gathered little had no want.
8:16 16 And I do thankings to God, that gave the same busyness for you in the heart of Titus, 16 Thanks be unto God, which put in the heart of Titus the same good mind {diligence} toward you. 16 And thanks be unto God, which hath put in the heart of Titus the same care for you. 16 But thanks be to God, who put the same earnest care into the heart of Titus for you.
8:17 17 for [soothly] he received exhortation; but when he was busier, by his will he went forth to you [with his will he went forth to you] . 17 For he accepted our [the] request. Yea rather he was {in deed, yea he was rather} so well willing, that of his own accord came unto you. 17 Because he accepted the exhortation, yea, he was so careful that of his own accord he went unto you. 17 For indeed he accepted the exhortation; but being more diligent, of his own accord he went to you.
8:18 18 And we sent with him a brother, whose praising is in the gospel by all churches. 18 We have sent with him that brother whose laud {praise} is in the gospel [gospell] thorowout all the congregations: 18 And we have sent also with him the brother, whose praise is in the Gospel throughout all the Churches. 18 And we have sent with him the brother, whose praise is in the gospel throughout all the churches;
8:19 19 And not only [praised] , but also he is ordained of churches the fellow of our pilgrimage into this grace, that is ministered of us to the glory of the Lord, and to our ordained will; 19 and not so only, but is also chosen of the congregations to be a fellow with us in our journey, as concerning this benevolence that is ministered by us unto the praise of the Lord, and to stir up your prompt mind. 19 (And not so only, but is also chosen of the Churches to be a fellow in our journey, concerning this grace that is ministered by us unto the glory of the same Lord, and declaration of your prompt mind) 19 And not that only, but who was also chosen by the churches to travel with us with this grace, which is administered by us to the glory of the same Lord, and to show our ready mind: [grace: or, gift]
8:20 20 eschewing this thing, that no man blame us in this plenty, that is ministered of us to the glory of the Lord. 20 And [For] this we eschew that any man should rebuke us in this abundance, {and to beware, lest any man report evil of us because of this plenteousness} [plenteous distribution] that is ministered by us, (to the glory of the lorde) 20 Avoiding this, that no man should blame us in this abundance that is ministered by us, 20 Avoiding this, that no man should blame us in this abundance which is administered by us:
8:21 21 For we purvey good things, not only before God, but also before all men. 21 and [therefore] make provision for honest things, not in the sight of God only, {not onely before the LORDE} but also in the sight of men. {also before men} 21 Providing for honest things, not only before the Lord, but also before men. 21 Providing for honest things, not only in the sight of the Lord, but also in the sight of men.
8:22 22 For we sent with them also our brother, whom we have proved in many things oft, that he was busy, but now much busier, for much trust in you, [Forsooth we sent with them and our brother, whom we have proved in many things oft, to be busy, now forsooth much busier, in much trust in you,] 22 We have sent with them a brother of ours whom we have oft times proved diligent in many things, but now much more diligent. The great confidence which I have in you {And this have we done in great hope toward you} 22 And we have sent with them our brother, whom we have oft times proved to be diligent in many things, but now much more diligent, for the great confidence, which I have in you. 22 And we have sent with them our brother, whom we have often proved to be diligent in many things, but now much more diligent, upon the great confidence which I have in you. [I have: or, he hath]
8:23 23 either for Titus, that is my fellow and helper in you, either for our brethren [either our brethren] , apostles of the churches of the glory of Christ. 23 hath caused me this to do: partly {whether it be} for Titus' sake which is my fellow, and helper as concerning you: partly because of other [others] which are our brethren, and the messengers {which are Apostles} of the congregations, and the glory {praise} of Christ. 23 Whether any do inquire of Titus, he is my fellow and helper toward you: [youward] or of our brethren, they are messengers of the Churches, and the glory of Christ. 23 If any do enquire concerning Titus, he is my partner and fellowhelper concerning you: or our brethren be enquired of, they are the messengers of the churches, and the glory of Christ.
8:24 24 Therefore show ye to them in the face of churches, that showing that is of your charity [the showing that is of your charity] and of our glory for you. 24 Wherefore shew unto them the proof of your love, and of the rejoicing that we have {and of your boasting} of you, that the congregations may see it. {sight of the congregations} 24 Wherefore shew toward them, and before the Churches the proof of your love, and of the rejoicing that we have of you. 24 Therefore show ye to them, and before the churches, the proof of your love, and of our boasting on your behalf.
9:1 1 For of the ministry that is made to holy men, it is to me of plenty to write to you. 1 Of the ministering to {handreaching unto} the saints, it is but superfluous {no need} for me to write unto you: 1 For as touching the ministering to the Saints, it is superfluous for me to write unto you. 1 For as concerning the ministering to the saints, it is superfluous for me to write to you:
9:2 2 For I know your [ready] will, for the which I have glory of you with Macedonians, for also Achaia is ready from a year passed, and your love hath stirred full many. 2 for I know your readiness of mind, whereof I boast myself unto {among} them of Macedonia, and say that Achaia was prepared {ready} a year ago, and your ferventness hath provoked many. 2 For I know your readiness of mind, whereof I boast myself of you unto them of Macedonia, and say, that Achaia was prepared a year ago, and your zeal hath provoked many. 2 For I know the readiness of your mind, for which I boast of you to them of Macedonia, that Achaia was ready a year ago; and your zeal hath stirred up very many.
9:3 3 And we have sent brethren, that this thing that we glory of you, be not voided in this part, that as I said, ye be ready. 3 Nevertheless yet have I sent these brethren, lest our rejoicing over you should be in vain in this behalf, and that ye (as I have said) prepare yourselves, {that ye might be ready, as I have reported} 3 Now have I sent the brethren, lest our rejoicing over you should be in vain in this behalf, that ye (as I have said) be ready: 3 Yet have I sent the brethren, lest our boasting of you should be in vain in this behalf; that, as I said, ye may be ready:
9:4 4 Lest when Macedonians come with me, and find you unready, we be shamed, that we say you not/that we saw you not, in this substance. 4 lest peradventure if {when} they of Macedonia come with me and find you unprepared, the boast that I made in this matter should be a shame to us: I say not unto you. {I will not say ye should be ashamed in this presumption of boasting} 4 Lest if they of Macedonia come with me, and find you unprepared, we (that we may not [I need not to] say, you) should be ashamed in this my constant boasting. 4 Lest if they of Macedonia come with me, and find you unprepared, we (that we say not, ye) should be ashamed in this same confident boasting.
9:5 5 Therefore I guessed necessary to pray brethren, that they come before to you, and make ready this promised blessing to be ready, so as blessing, and not as avarice. 5 Wherefore I thought it necessary to exhort the brethren, to come before hand unto you, for to prepare your good blessing promised afore, that it might be ready: so that it be a blessing, and not a defrauding. 5 Wherefore, I thought it necessary to exhort the brethren to come before unto you, and to finish your benevolence appointed afore, that it might be ready, and come as of benevolence, and not as of niggardliness. [sparing] 5 Therefore I thought it necessary to exhort the brethren, that they would go before to you, and make up beforehand your bounty, of which ye had notice before, that the same might be ready, as a matter of bounty, and not of covetousness. [bounty: Gr. blessing] [whereof...: or, which hath been so much spoken of before]
9:6 6 For I say this thing [This thing forsooth I say] , he that soweth scarcely, shall also reap scarcely; and he that soweth in blessings, shall reap also of blessings. 6 This yet remember, how that he which soweth little, shall reap little: and he that soweth plenteously shall reap plenteously. 6 This yet remember, that he which soweth sparingly, shall reap also sparingly, and he that soweth liberally, shall reap also liberally. 6 But this I say, He who soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he who soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.
9:7 7 Each man as he casted in his heart [Each man as he cast in his heart] , not of heaviness, or of need; for God loveth a glad giver. 7 And let every man do according as he hath purposed in his heart, not grudgingly, or of necessity. {compulsion} For God loveth a cheerful giver. 7 As every man wisheth in his heart, so let him give, not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. 7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or by necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
9:8 8 And God is mighty to make all grace abound in you, that ye in all things evermore have all sufficience, and abound into all good work [that ye, in all things evermore having all sufficience, abound into all good work] ; 8 God is able to make you rich in all grace, that ye in all things having sufficient unto the utmost, may be rich unto all manner good works, 8 And God is able to make all grace to abound toward you, that ye always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound in every good work, 8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:
9:9 9 as it is written, He dealed abroad, he gave to poor men, his rightwiseness dwelleth without end [his rightwiseness dwelleth into without end] . 9 as it is written: He that sparsed abroad and hath given to the poor, his righteousness remaineth for ever. 9 (As it is written, He hath sparsed abroad and hath given to the poor: his benevolence remaineth forever. 9 (As it is written, He hath dispersed; he hath given to the poor: his righteousness remaineth for ever.
9:10 10 And he that ministereth seed to the sower, shall give also bread to eat, and he shall multiply your seed, and make much the increasings of fruits of your rightwiseness; [+Forsooth he that ministereth seed to the man sowing, and shall give bread to eat, and he shall multiply your seed, and make much the increasing of fruits of your rightwiseness;] 10 He that findeth the sower seed, shall minister bread for food, and shall multiply your seed, and increase the fruits of your righteousness that on all parts, 10 Also he that findeth seed to the sower, will minister likewise bread for food, and multiply your seed, and increase the fruits of your benevolence,) 10 Now may he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness;)
9:11 11 that in all things ye made rich wax plenteous into all simpleness [that in all things made rich abound into all simpleness] , which worketh by us doing of thankings to God. 11 ye may be made rich in all singleness, which causeth thorow us, thanks giving unto God. 11 That on all parts ye may be made rich unto all liberality, which causeth through us thanksgiving unto God. 11 Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God. [bountifulness: or, liberality: Gr. simplicity]
9:12 12 For the ministry of this office not only filleth those things that fail to holy men, but also multiplieth many thankings to God [but also aboundeth by many in doing of thankings to the Lord] , 12 For the office of this ministration, {handreaching of this collection} not only supplieth the need of the saints: but also is abundant herein, that for this laudable ministering, thanks might be given to God of many, {ministration, many might give thanks unto God} 12 For the ministration of this service not only supplieth the necessities of the Saints, but also abundantly causeth many to give thanks to God, [also is abundant by the thanksgiving of many unto God,] 12 For the administration of this service not only supplieth the want of the saints, but is abundant also by many thanksgivings to God;
9:13 13 by the proving of this ministry, which glorify God in the obedience of your acknowledging in the gospel of Christ, and in simpleness of communication into them and into all [others] , 13 which praise God for the obedience in knowledging [of your professing] the gospel [gospell] of Christ, and for your singleness, in distributing to them, and to all men. 13 (Which by the experiment of this ministration praise God for your voluntary submission to the Gospel of Christ, and for your liberal distribution to [unto] them, and to all men) 13 While by the proof of this ministration they glorify God for your professed subjection to the gospel of Christ, and for your liberal distribution to them, and to all men;
9:14 14 and in the beseeching of them for you, that desire you for the excellent grace of God in you. 14 And in their prayers to God for you, long after you, for the abundant grace of God given unto you. 14 And in [by] their prayer for you, to long [desiring] after you greatly, for the abundant grace of God in you. 14 And by their prayer for you, who long after you for the exceeding grace of God in you.
9:15 15 I do thankings to God of the gift of him, that may not be told. [+I give thankings to God upon the untellable/ unnarrable, or that may not be told, gift of him.] 15 Thanks be unto God for his ineffable [unspeakable] gift. 15 Thanks therefore be unto God for his unspeakable gift. 15 Thanks be to God for his unspeakable gift.
10:1 1 And I myself Paul beseech you, by the mildness and softness of Christ [+Forsooth I Paul beseech you, by the gentleness, or mildness, and softness, or patience, of Christ] , which in the face am meek among you, and I absent trust in you. 1 I Paul myself beseech you by the meekness and softness of Christ, which when I am present among you, am of no reputation, but am bold toward you being absent. 1 Now I Paul myself beseech you by the meekness, and gentleness of Christ, which when I am present among you am base, but am bold toward you being absent: 1 Now I Paul myself beseech you by the meekness and gentleness of Christ, who in presence am base among you, but being absent am bold toward you: [in presence: or, in outward appearance]
10:2 2 For I pray you, that lest I present be not bold by the trust, in which I am guessed to be bold into some, that deem us, as if we wander after the flesh. [+Forsooth, I pray you, that I present be not hardy by that trust, in which I am guessed to be hardy into some, which deem us, as (if) we wandered after the flesh.] 2 I beseech you that I need not to be bold when I am present (with that same confidence, {to use that boldness} wherewith I am supposed to be bold) against some which repute us as though we walked carnally. {after the flesh} 2 And this I require of you, that I need not to be bold when I am present, with that same confidence, wherewith I think to be bold against some, which esteem us as though we walked according to the flesh. 2 But I beseech you, that I may not be bold when I am present with that confidence, with which I think to be bold against some, who think of us as if we walked according to the flesh. [think: or, reckon]
10:3 3 For we walking in the flesh, fight not after the flesh. 3 Nevertheless though we walk compassed with the flesh, yet we war not fleshly. {fight we not after a fleshly manner} 3 Nevertheless, though we walk in the flesh, yet we do not war after the flesh. 3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh:
10:4 4 For the arms of our knighthood be not fleshly, but mighty by God to the destruction of strengths [to the destruction of wardings, or strengths] . 4 For the weapons of our war are not carnal things, {fleshly} but things mighty in God to cast down strongholds, 4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God, to cast down holds) 4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) [through God: or, to God]
10:5 5 And we destroy counsels, and all highness that higheth itself against the science of God, and drive into captivity all understanding into the service of Christ. [+Destroying counsels, and all highness raising itself against the science of God, and driving into captivity all understanding into the service of Christ.] 5 wherewith we overthrow imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bring into captivity all understanding to the obedience of Christ, 5 Casting down the imaginations, and every high thing that is exalted against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ, 5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; [imaginations: or, reasonings]
10:6 6 And we have ready to venge all unobedience, when your obedience shall be filled. [Also having in readiness to venge all unobedience, when your obedience shall be fulfilled.] 6 and are ready to take vengeance on all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled. 6 And having ready the vengeance against all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled. 6 And having in a readiness to punish all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.
10:7 7 See ye the things that be after the face. If any man trusteth to himself, that he is of Christ, think he this thing again with himself, for as he is Christ's, so also we [so and we] . 7 Look ye on things after the utter appearance. If any man trust in himself that he is Christ's, [Christis] let the same also consider of himself, that as he is Christ's, [Christis] even so are we Christ's. [Christes.] 7 Look ye on things after the appearance? If any man trust in himself that he is Christ's, let him consider this again of himself, that as he is Christ's, even so are we Christ's. 7 Do ye look on things after the outward appearance? If any man trusteth to himself that he is Christ's, let him of himself think this again, that, as he is Christ's, even so are we Christ's.
10:8 8 For if I shall glory any thing more of our power, which the Lord gave to us into edifying, and not into your destruction, I shall not be shamed. 8 And though I should boast myself somewhat more of our authority which the Lord hath given us to edify and not to destroy you, it should not be to my shame. 8 For though I should boast somewhat more of our authority, which the Lord hath given us for edification, and not for your destruction, I should have no shame. 8 For though I should boast somewhat more of our authority, which the Lord hath given us for edification, and not for your destruction, I should not be ashamed:
10:9 9 But that I be not guessed as to frighten you by epistles, [Forsooth that I be not guessed as to fear you by epistles,] 9 This say I, lest I should seem as though I went about to make you afraid with letters. 9 This I say, that I may not seem as it were to fear you with letters. 9 That I may not seem as if I would terrify you by letters.
10:10 10 for they say, That epistles be grievous and strong, but the presence of the body is feeble, and the word worthy to be despised. [+for why they say, The epistles be heavy, or grievous, and strong, but the presence of the body is sick, and the word contemptible, or worthy to be despised.] 10 For the pistels (saith he) are sore and strong: but his bodily presence is weak, and his speech homely. [rude.] 10 For the letters, saith he, are sore and strong, but his bodily presence is weak, and his speech is of no value. 10 For his letters, say they, are weighty and powerful; but his bodily presence is weak, and his speech contemptible. [say they: Gr. saith he]
10:11 11 He that is such one, think this, for such as we absent be in word by epistles, such we be present in deed. 11 Let him that is such think on this wise, that as we are in words by letters when we are absent, such are we in deeds when we are present. 11 Let such one think this, that such as we are in word by letters, when we are absent, such will we be also indeed, when we are present. 11 Let such a person think this, that, such as we are in word by letters when we are absent, such will we be also in deed when we are present.
10:12 12 For we dare not put us among, or comparison us to some men, that commend themselves; but we measure us in us selves, and comparison us selves to us. [Soothly we dare not put us among, or comparison us to some, that commend themselves; but we meting, or measuring, us in ourselves, and comparisoning ourselves to us.] 12 For we cannot find in our hearts to make ourselves of the number of them, or to compare ourselves to them, which laud themselves: {For we dare not reckon or compare our selves, unto some that praise them selves} but [nevertheless] while they measure themselves with themselves, and compare themselves with themselves, they understand nought. {nothing} 12 For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or to compare ourselves to them, which praise themselves: but they understand not that they measure themselves with themselves, and compare themselves with themselves. 12 For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise. [are...: or, understand it not]
10:13 13 For we shall not have glory over measure, but by the measure of the rule [but after the measure of rule] which God measured to us, the measure that stretcheth [till] to you. 13 But we will not rejoice {not boast ourselves} above measure: but according to the quantity of the measure which {measure of the rule wherewith} God hath distributed unto us, a measure that reacheth even unto you. 13 But we will not rejoice of things, which are not within our measure, but according to the measure of the line, whereof God hath distributed unto us a measure to attain even unto you. 13 But we will not boast of things without our measure, but according to the measure of the rule which God hath distributed to us, a measure to reach even to you. [rule: or, line]
10:14 14 For we overstretch not forth us, as not stretching to you. For [till] to you we came in the gospel of Christ, 14 For we stretch not out ourselves beyond measure as though we had not reached unto you. For even unto you have we come with the gospel [gospell] of Christ, 14 For we stretch not ourselves beyond our measure, as though we had not attained unto you: for even to you also have we come in preaching the Gospel of Christ, 14 For we stretch not ourselves beyond our measure, as though we reached not to you: for we are come as far as to you also in preaching the gospel of Christ:
10:15 15 not glorying over measure in other men's travails. For we have hope of your faith that waxeth in you to be magnified by our rule in abundance [Soothly we having hope of your faith waxing in you to be magnified after our rule in abundance] , 15 and we boast not ourselves out of measure in other men's labors: yea and we hope; When your faith is increased among you, to be magnified according to our measure more largely: 15 Not boasting of things which are without our measure: that is, of other men's labors: and we hope, when your faith shall increase, to be magnified by you according to our line abundantly, 15 Not boasting of things without our measure, that is, of other men's labours; but having hope, when your faith is increased, that we shall be enlarged by you according to our rule abundantly, [enlarged...: or, magnified in you]
10:16 16 also to preach into those things that be beyond you, not to have glory in other man's rule [not to glory in other manís rule] , in these things that be made ready. 16 And to preach the gospel [gospell] in those regions which are beyond you: and not to rejoice of that which is by another man's measure prepared all ready. [already.] 16 And to preach the Gospel in those regions which are beyond you: not to rejoice in another man's line, that is, in the things that are prepared already. 16 To preach the gospel in the regions beyond you, and not to boast in another man's line of things made ready to our hand. [line: or, rule]
10:17 17 [Forsooth] He that glorieth, have glory in the Lord [glory he in the Lord] . 17 Let him that rejoiceth, rejoice in the Lord. 17 But let him that rejoiceth, rejoice in the Lord. 17 But he that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.
10:18 18 For not he that commendeth himself is approved [is proved] , but whom God commendeth. 18 For he that praiseth himself, is not allowed: but he whom the Lord praiseth. 18 For he that praiseth himself, is not allowed, but he whom the Lord praiseth. 18 For not he that commendeth himself is approved, but whom the Lord commendeth.
11:1 1 I would that ye would suffer a little thing of mine unwisdom, but also support ye me. [+I would that ye would sustain a little thing of mine unwisdom, but also support ye me, or bear up me/or bear me up.] 1 Would to God, ye could suffer me a little in my foolishness: yea, and I pray you forbear me. 1 Would to God, ye could suffer a little my foolishness, and indeed, ye suffer me. 1 O that ye could bear with me a little in my folly: and indeed bear with me. [indeed bear...: or, indeed ye do bear with me]
11:2 2 For I love you by the love of God; for I have espoused [spoused] you to one husband, to yield a chaste virgin to Christ [to give you, a chaste virgin, to one man, Christ] . 2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy. For I coupled {have married} you to one man, to make you {to bring} a chaste virgin to Christ: 2 For I am jealous over you, with godly jealousy: for I have prepared you for one husband, to present you as a pure virgin to Christ: 2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.
11:3 3 But I dread, lest as the serpent deceived Eve with his subtle fraud, so your wits be corrupted, and fallen down from the simpleness that is in Christ. 3 But I fear lest as the serpent beguiled Eve, thorow {with} his subtlety, even so your wits should be corrupt from the singleness that is in Christ. 3 But I fear lest as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupt from the simplicity that is in Christ. 3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his craftiness, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
11:4 4 For if he that cometh, preacheth another Christ, whom we preached not, or if ye take another spirit, whom ye took not [whom ye received not] , or another gospel, which ye received not, rightly ye should suffer. 4 For if he that cometh to you preach another Jesus than him whom we preached: or if ye receive another spirit than that which ye have received: either another gospel [gospell] than that ye have received, {accepted} ye might right well have been content. 4 For if he that cometh, preacheth another Jesus whom we have not [than him whom we have] preached: or if ye receive another spirit whom ye have not [than that which ye have] received: either another Gospel, which ye have not [than that ye have] received, ye might well have suffered him. 4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him. [with him: or, with me]
11:5 5 For I ween that I have done nothing less than the great apostles. 5 I suppose that I was not behind the chief apostles. {am no less than the hye Apostles are} 5 Verily I suppose that I was not inferior to the very chief Apostles. 5 For I suppose I was not a bit behind the very greatest apostles.
11:6 6 For though I be unlearned in word, but not in knowing. For in all things I am open to you. [For why though I be unlearned in sermon, or word, but not in science, or knowing. Forsooth in all things I am showed, or made known, to you.] 6 Though I be rude in speaking, yet I am not so in knowledge. How be it among you we are known to the utmost what we are in all things. 6 And though I be rude in speaking, yet I am not so in knowledge, but among you we have been made manifest to the uttermost, [utmost] in all things. 6 But though I am rude in speech, yet not in knowledge; but we have been thoroughly made evident among you in all things.
11:7 7 Or whether I have done sin, meeking myself [meeking, or making low, myself] , that ye be enhanced, for freely I preached to you the gospel of God? 7 Did I therein sin, because I submitted myself, that ye might be exalted? and because I preached the gospel to you free? [preached unto you the Gospell of God freely] 7 Have I committed an offence, because I abased myself, that ye might be exalted, and because I preached to you the Gospel of God freely? 7 Have I committed an offence in abasing myself that ye might be exalted, because I have preached to you the gospel of God without charge?
11:8 8 I made naked other churches, and I took wages to your service. [I spoiled, or made naked, or took gifts, of other churches, taking wages to your service.] 8 I robbed other congregations, and took wages of them, to do you service withal. 8 I robbed other Churches, and took wages of them to do you service. 8 I robbed other churches, taking wages of them, to do you service.
11:9 9 And when I was among you, and had need [And when I was with you, and needed] , I was chargeous to no man; for brethren that came from Macedonia, fulfilled that that failed to me [supplied, or fulfilled, that that failed to me] . And in all things I have kept [me] , and shall keep me without charge to you. 9 And when I was present with you and had need, I was grievous to no man. For that which was lacking unto me, the brethren which came from Macedonia supplied: and in all things I kept myself that I should not be grievous to you: and so will I keep myself. 9 And when I was present with you, and had need, I was not slothful to the hindrance of any man: for that which was lacking unto me, the brethren which came from Macedonia, supplied, and in all things I kept and will keep myself, that I should not be grievous to [unto] you. 9 And when I was present with you, and in need, I was chargeable to no man: for that which was lacking to me the brethren who came from Macedonia supplied: and in all things I have kept myself from being burdensome to you, and so will I keep myself.
11:10 10 The truth of Christ is in me; for this glory shall not be broken in me in the countries of Achaia [in the regions, or countries, of Achaia] . 10 If the truth of Christ be in me, this rejoicing shall not be taken from me in the regions of Achaia. 10 The truth of Christ is in me, that this rejoicing shall not be shut up against me in the regions of Achaia. 10 As the truth of Christ is in me, no man shall stop me of this boasting in the regions of Achaia. [no man...: Gr. this boasting shall not be stopped in me]
11:11 11 Why? for I love not you? God knoweth. 11 Wherefore? because I love you not? God knoweth. 11 Wherefore? because I love you not? God knoweth. 11 Why? because I love you not? God knoweth.
11:12 12 For that that I do, and that I shall do, is that I cut away the occasion of them that will occasion, that in the thing, in which they glory, they be found [such] as we. 12 Nevertheless what I do, that will I do to cut away occasion from them which desire occasion, that they might be found like unto us in that wherein they rejoice: {might boast themselves to be like unto us} 12 But what I do, that will I do: that I may cut away occasion from them which desire occasion, that they might be found like unto us in that wherein they rejoice. 12 But what I do, that I will do, that I may cut off occasion from them who desire occasion; that in what they glory, they may be found even as we.
11:13 13 For such false apostles be treacherous workmen, and transfigure them(selves) into apostles of Christ. [+For why such apostles be treacherous, or guileful, workmen, transfiguring them into apostles of Christ.] 13 For these false apostles are deceitful workers, and fashion them selves like unto the apostles of Christ. 13 For such false apostles are deceitful workers, and transform themselves into the Apostles of Christ. 13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
11:14 14 And no wonder, for Satan himself transfigureth him(self) into an angel of light. [And no wonder; soothly he Satan transfigured him into an angel of light.] 14 And no marvel, for Satan himself is changed into the fashion of an angel of light. 14 And no marvel: for Satan himself is transformed into an Angel of light. 14 And no wonder; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
11:15 15 Therefore it is not great, if his ministers be transfigured as the ministers of rightwiseness, whose end shall be after their works. 15 Therefore it is no great thing, though his ministers fashion themselves as though they were the ministers {preachers} of righteousness: whose end shall be according to their deeds. 15 Therefore it is no great thing, though his ministers transform themselves, as though they were the ministers of righteousness, whose end shall be according to their works. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also are transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
11:16 16 Again I say, lest any man guess me to be unwise [lest any man deem me unwise] ; else take ye me as unwise, that also I have glory a little what. 16 I say again lest any man think that I am foolish: or else even now take me as a fool, that I may boast myself a little. 16 I say again, Let no man think that I am foolish, or else take me even as a fool, that I also may boast myself a little. 16 I say again, Let no man think me a fool; if otherwise, yet as a fool receive me, that I may boast myself a little. [receive: or, suffer]
11:17 17 That that I speak, I speak not after God, but as in unwisdom [but as to unwisdom] , in this substance of glory. 17 That I speak, I speak it not after the ways of the Lord: but as it were foolishly, while we are now come to boasting. 17 That I speak, I speak it not after the Lord: but as it were foolishly, in this my great boasting. 17 That which I speak, I speak it not according to the Lord, but as it were foolishly, in this confidence of boasting.
11:18 18 For many men glory after the flesh, and I shall glory. 18 Seeing that many rejoice {boast} after the flesh I will rejoice {boast} also. 18 Seeing that many rejoice after the flesh, I will rejoice also. 18 Seeing that many glory after the flesh, I will glory also.
11:19 19 For ye suffer gladly unwise men, when ye yourselves be wise. 19 For ye suffer fools gladly because that ye yourselves are wise. 19 For ye suffer fools gladly, because that ye are wise. 19 For ye bear with fools gladly, seeing ye yourselves are wise.
11:20 20 For ye suffer, if any man driveth you into servage [if any man drive you into servage] , if any man devoureth, if any man taketh, if any man is enhanced [by pride] , if any man smiteth you on the face. 20 For ye suffer even if a man bring you into bondage: if a man devour: {put you to dishonesty} if a man take: if a man exalt himself: if a man smite you on the face. 20 For ye suffer, even if a man bring you into bondage, if a man devour you, if a man take your goods, if a man exalt himself, if a man smite you on the face. 20 For ye bear with it, if a man bringeth you into bondage, if a man devoureth you, if a man taketh from you, if a man exalteth himself, if a man smiteth you on the face.
11:21 21 By unnobleness I say, as if we were frail in this part [+After unnobility, I say, as if we were sick in this part] . In what thing any man dare, in unwisdom I say, and I dare. 21 I speak as concerning rebuke, as though we had been weak.

13:3 3 Whether ye seek the proof of that Christ, that speaketh in me, which is not feeble in you, [but is mighty in you] ? [+Whether ye seek an experiment, or assaying, of him that speaketh in me, Christ, the which is not sick in you, but is mighty in you?] 3 seeing that ye seek experience of Christ which speaketh in me, which among you is not weak, but is mighty in you. 3 Seeing that ye seek experience of Christ, that speaketh in me, which toward you is not weak, but is mighty in you. 3 Since ye seek a proof of Christ speaking in me, who toward you is not weak, but is mighty in you.
13:4 4 For though he was crucified of infirmity, but he liveth of the virtue of God. For also we be frail in him [For why and we be sick in him] , but we shall live with him of the virtue of God in us. 4 And verily though it came of weakness that he was crucified, yet liveth he thorow the power of God: and we no doubt are weak in him: but we shall live with him, by the might {power} that God gave us to you ward.

13:7 7 And we pray the Lord, that ye do nothing of evil; not that we seem approved [not that we seem proved] , but that ye do that that is good, and that we be as reprovable. 7 I desire before God that ye do none evil, not that we should seem commendable: but that ye should do, that which is honest: {good} and let us be counted as lewd persons. {cast aways} 7 Now I pray unto God that ye do none evil, not that we should seem approved, but that ye should do that which is honest: though we be as reprobates. 7 Now I pray to God that ye do no evil; not that we should appear approved, but that ye should do that which is honest, though we may seem disqualified.
