2 Corinthians 1 (ASV)
 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus through the will of God, and Timothy our brother, unto the church of God which is at Corinth, with all the saints that are in the whole of Achaia:
 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort;
 who comforteth us in all our affliction, that we may be able to comfort them that are in any affliction, through the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
 For as the sufferings of Christ abound unto us, even so our comfort also aboundeth through Christ.
 But whether we are afflicted, it is for your comfort and salvation; or whether we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which worketh in the patient enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer:
 and our hope for you is stedfast; knowing that, as ye are partakers of the sufferings, so also are ye of the comfort.
 For we would not have you ignorant, brethren, concerning our affliction which befell us in Asia, that we were weighed down exceedingly, beyond our power, insomuch that we despaired even of life:
 yea, we ourselves have had the sentence of death within ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God who raiseth the dead:
 who delivered us out of so great a death, and will deliver: on whom we have set our hope that he will also still deliver us;
 ye also helping together on our behalf by your supplication; that, for the gift bestowed upon us by means of many, thanks may be given by many persons on our behalf.
 For our glorifying is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in holiness and sincerity of God, not in fleshly wisdom but in the grace of God, we behaved ourselves in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward.
 For we write no other things unto you, than what ye read or even acknowledge, and I hope ye will acknowledge unto the end:
 as also ye did acknowledge us in part, that we are your glorying, even as ye also are ours, in the day of our Lord Jesus.
 And in this confidence I was minded to come first unto you, that ye might have a second benefit;
 and by you to pass into Macedonia, and again from Macedonia to come unto you, and of you to be set forward on my journey unto Judaea.
 When I therefore was thus minded, did I show fickleness? or the things that I purpose, do I purpose according to the flesh, that with me there should be the yea yea and the nay nay?
 But as God is faithful, our word toward you is not yea and nay.
 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 is yea.
 For how many soever be the promises of God, in him is the yea: wherefore also through him is the Amen, unto the glory of God through us.
 Now he that establisheth us with you in Christ, and anointed us, is God;
 who also sealed us, and gave us the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.
 But I call God for a witness upon my soul, that to spare you I forbare to come unto Corinth.
 Not that we have lordship over your faith, but are helpers of your joy: for in faith ye stand fast.

2 Corinthians 1 (KJVS)
 Paul G3972, an apostle G652 of Jesus G2424 Christ G5547 by G1223 the will G2307 of God G2316, and G2532 Timothy G5095 [our] brother G80, unto the church G1577 of God G2316 which G3588 is G5607 (PresPtc) at G1722 Corinth G2882, with G4862 all G3956 the saints G40 which G3588 are G5607 (PresPtc) in G1722 all G3650 Achaia G882:
 Grace G5485 [be] to you G5213 and G2532 peace G1515 from G575 God G2316 our G2257 Father G3962, and G2532 [from] the Lord G2962 Jesus G2424 Christ G5547.
 Blessed G2128 [be] God G2316, even G2532 the Father G3962 of our G2257 Lord G2962 Jesus G2424 Christ G5547, the Father G3962 of mercies G3628, and G2532 the God G2316 of all G3956 comfort G3874;
 Who G3588 comforteth G3870 (PresActPtc) us G2248 in G1909 all G3956 our G2257 tribulation G2347, that G1519 we G2248 may be able G1410 (PresMidPasDepInf) to comfort G3870 (PresActInf) them which are in G1722 any G3956 trouble G2347, by G1223 the comfort G3874 wherewith G3739 we G3870 ourselves G846 are comforted G3870 (PresPasInd) of G5259 God G2316.
 For G3754 as G2531 the sufferings G3804 of Christ G5547 abound G4052 (PresActInd) in G1519 us G2248, so G3779 our G2257 consolation G3874 also G2532 aboundeth G4052 (PresActInd) by G1223 Christ G5547.
 And G1161 whether G1535 we be afflicted G2346 (PresPasInd), [it is] for G5228 your G5216 consolation G3874 and G2532 salvation G4991, which G3588 is effectual G1754 (PresMidPtc) in G1722 the enduring G5281 of the same G846 sufferings G3804 which G3739 we G2249 also G2532 suffer G3958 (PresActInd): or whether G1535 we be comforted G3870 (PresPasInd), [it is] for G5228 your G5216 consolation G3874 and G2532 salvation G4991.
 And G2532 our G2257 hope G1680 of G5228 you G5216 [is] stedfast G949, knowing G1492 (PerfActPtc), that G3754 as G5618 ye are G2075 (PresInd) partakers G2844 of the sufferings G3804, so G3779 [shall ye be] also G2532 of the consolation G3874.
 For G1063 we would G2309 (PresActInd) not G3756, brethren G80, have G50 you G5209 ignorant G50 (PresActInf) of G5228 our G2257 trouble G2347 which G3588 came G1096 (Aor2MidDepPtc) to us G2254 in G1722 Asia G773, that G3754 we were pressed G2596 out G916 (AorPasInd) of measure G5236, above G5228 strength G1411, insomuch G5620 that we G2248 despaired G1820 (AorPasInf) even G2532 of life G2198 (PresActInf):
 But G235 G846 we had G2192 (PerfActInd) the sentence G610 of death G2288 in G1722 ourselves G1438, that G3363 we should G3982 not G3363 trust G3982 (Perf2ActPtc) in G1909 ourselves G1438 G5600 (PresSubj), but G235 in G1909 God G2316 which G3588 raiseth G1453 (PresActPtc) the dead G3498:
 Who G3739 delivered G4506 (AorMidPasDepInd) us G2248 from G1537 so great G5082 a death G2288, and G2532 doth deliver G4506 (PresMidPasDepInd): in G1519 whom G3739 we trust G1679 (PerfActInd) that G3754 he will G4506 G2532 yet G2089 deliver G4506 (FutMidDepInd) [us];
 Ye G5216 also G2532 helping together G4943 (PresActPtc) by prayer G1162 for G5228 us G2257, that G2443 for the gift G5486 [bestowed] upon G1519 us G2248 by G1537 the means of many G4183 persons G4383 thanks may be G2168 (AorPasSubj) given G5228 by G1223 many G4183 on our behalf G2257.
 For G1063 our G2257 rejoicing G2746 is G2076 (PresInd) this G3778, the testimony G3142 of our G2257 conscience G4893, that G3754 in G1722 simplicity G572 and G2532 godly G2316 sincerity G1505, not G3756 with G1722 fleshly G4559 wisdom G4678, but G235 by G1722 the grace G5485 of God G2316, we have had our conversation G390 (Aor2PasDepSubj) in G1722 the world G2889, and G1161 more abundantly G4056 to G4314 you-ward G5209.
 For G1063 we write G1125 (PresActInd) none G3756 other things G243 unto you G5213, than G235 G2228 what G3739 ye read G314 (PresActInd) or G2228 G2532 acknowledge G1921 (PresActInd); and G1161 I trust G1679 (PresActInd) G3754 ye shall acknowledge G1921 (FutMidDepInd) even G2532 to G2193 the end G5056;
 As G2531 also G2532 ye have acknowledged G1921 (Aor2ActInd) us G2248 in G575 part G3313, that G3754 we are G2070 (PresInd) your G5216 rejoicing G2745, even as G2509 ye G5210 also G2532 [are] ours G2257 in G1722 the day G2250 of the Lord G2962 Jesus G2424.
 And G2532 in this G5026 confidence G4006 I was minded G1014 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) to come G2064 (Aor2ActInf) unto G4314 you G5209 before G4386, that G2443 ye might have G2192 (PresActSubj) a second G1208 benefit G5485;
 And G2532 to pass G1330 (Aor2ActInf) by G1223 you G5216 into G1519 Macedonia G3109, and G2532 to come G2064 (Aor2ActInf) again G3825 out of G575 Macedonia G3109 unto G4314 you G5209, and G2532 of G5259 you G5216 to be brought on my way G4311 (AorPasInf) toward G1519 Judaea G2449.
 When I G1011 therefore G3767 was G1011 thus G5124 minded G1011 (PresMidPasDepPtc), did I use G3385 G686 G5530 (AorMidDepInd) lightness G1644? or G2228 the things that G3739 I purpose G1011 (PresMidPasDepInd), do I purpose G1011 (PresMidPasDepInd) according G2596 to the flesh G4561, that G2443 with G3844 me G1698 there should be G5600 (PresSubj) yea G3483 yea G3483, and G2532 nay G3756 nay G3756?
 But G1161 [as] God G2316 [is] true G4103, G3754 our G2257 word G3056 toward G4314 you G5209 was G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) not G3756 yea G3483 and G2532 nay G3756.
 For G1063 the Son G5207 of God G2316, Jesus G2424 Christ G5547, who G3588 was preached G2784 (AorPasPtc) among G1722 you G5213 by G1223 us G2257, [even] by G1223 me G1700 and G2532 Silvanus G4610 and G2532 Timotheus G5095, was G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) not G3756 yea G3483 and G2532 nay G3756, but G235 in G1722 him G846 was G1096 (Perf2ActInd) yea G3483.
 For G1063 all G3745 the promises G1860 of God G2316 in G1722 him G846 [are] yea G3483, and G2532 in G1722 him G846 Amen G281, unto G4314 the glory G1391 of God G2316 by G1223 us G2257.
 Now G1161 he which stablisheth G950 (PresActPtc) us G2248 with G4862 you G5213 in G1519 Christ G5547, and G2532 hath anointed G5548 (AorActPtc) us G2248, [is] God G2316;
 Who G3588 hath G4972 also G2532 sealed G4972 (AorMidPtc) us G2248, and G2532 given G1325 (Aor2ActPtc) the earnest G728 of the Spirit G4151 in G1722 our G2257 hearts G2588.
 Moreover G1161 I G1473 call G1941 (PresMidInd) God G2316 for a record G3144 upon G1909 my G1699 soul G5590, that G3754 to spare G5339 (PresMidPasDepPtc) you G5216 I came G2064 (Aor2ActInd) not as yet G3765 unto G1519 Corinth G2882.
 Not G3756 for that G3754 we have dominion over G2961 (PresActInd) your G5216 faith G4102, but G235 are G2070 (PresInd) helpers G4904 of your G5216 joy G5479: for G1063 by faith G4102 ye stand G2476 (PerfActInd).
Young’s Literal Translation
2 Corinthians 1 (YLT)
 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ, through the will of God, and Timotheus the brother, to the assembly of God that is in Corinth, with all the saints who are in all Achaia:
 Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ!
 Blessed is God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of the mercies, and God of all comfort,
 who is comforting us in all our tribulation, for our being able to comfort those in any tribulation through the comfort with which we are comforted ourselves by God;
 because, as the sufferings of the Christ do abound to us, so through the Christ doth abound also our comfort;
 and whether we be in tribulation, it is for your comfort and salvation, that is wrought in the enduring of the same sufferings that we also suffer; whether we are comforted, it is for your comfort and salvation;
 and our hope is stedfast for you, knowing that even as ye are partakers of the sufferings-so also of the comfort.
 For we do not wish you to be ignorant, brethren, of our tribulation that happened to us in Asia, that we were exceedingly burdened above our power, so that we despaired even of life;
 but we ourselves in ourselves the sentence of the death have had, that we may not be trusting on ourselves, but on God, who is raising the dead,
 who out of so great a death did deliver us, and doth deliver, in whom we have hoped that even yet He will deliver;
 ye working together also for us by your supplication, that the gift through many persons to us, through many may be thankfully acknowledged for us.
 For our glorying is this: the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and sincerity of God, not in fleshly wisdom, but in the grace of God, we did conduct ourselves in the world, and more abundantly toward you;
 for no other things do we write to you, but what ye either do read or also acknowledge, and I hope that also unto the end ye shall acknowledge,
 according as also ye did acknowledge us in part, that your glory we are, even as also ye are ours, in the day of the Lord Jesus;
 and in this confidence I was purposing to come unto you before, that a second favour ye might have,
 and through you to pass to Macedonia, and again from Macedonia to come unto you, and by you to be sent forward to Judea.
 This, therefore, counselling, did I then use the lightness; or the things that I counsel, according to the flesh do I counsel, that it may be with me Yes, yes, and No, no?
 and God is faithful, that our word unto you became not Yes and No,
 for the Son of God, Jesus Christ, among you through us having been preached-through me and Silvanus and Timotheus-did not become Yes and No, but in him it hath become Yes;
 for as many as are promises of God, in him are the Yes, and in him the Amen, for glory to God through us;
 and He who is confirming you with us into Christ, and did anoint us, is God,
 who also sealed us, and gave the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.
 And I for a witness on God do call upon my soul, that sparing you, I came not yet to Corinth;
 not that we are lords over your faith, but we are workers together with your joy, for by the faith ye stand.
