2 Corinthians 9 (WEBP)

[1] It is indeed unnecessary for me to write to you concerning the service to the saints,
[2] for I know your readiness, of which I boast on your behalf to those of Macedonia, that Achaia has been prepared for the past year. Your zeal has stirred up very many of them.
[3] But I have sent the brothers so that our boasting on your behalf may not be in vain in this respect, that, just as I said, you may be prepared,
[4] lest by any means, if anyone from Macedonia comes there with me and finds you unprepared, we (to say nothing of you) would be disappointed in this confident boasting.
[5] I thought it necessary therefore to entreat the brothers that they would go before to you and arrange ahead of time the generous gift that you promised before, that the same might be ready as a matter of generosity, and not of greediness.
[6] Remember this: he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly. He who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.
[7] Let each man give according as he has determined in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
[8] And God is able to make all grace abound to you, that you, always having all sufficiency in everything, may abound to every good work.
[9] As it is written, “He has scattered abroad. He has given to the poor. His righteousness remains forever.”
[10] Now may he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food, supply and multiply your seed for sowing, and increase the fruits of your righteousness,
[11] you being enriched in everything for all generosity, which produces thanksgiving to God through us.
[12] For this service of giving that you perform not only makes up for lack among the saints, but abounds also through much giving of thanks to God,
[13] seeing that through the proof given by this service, they glorify God for the obedience of your confession to the Good News of Christ and for the generosity of your contribution to them and to all,
[14] while they themselves also, with supplication on your behalf, yearn for you by reason of the exceeding grace of God in you.
[15] Now thanks be to God for his unspeakable gift!

2 Corinthians 9 (KJVS)

[1] For G1063 as G3303 touching G4012 the ministering G1248 to G1519 the saints G40, it is G2076 (PresInd) superfluous G4053 for me G3427 to write G1125 (PresActInf) to you G5213:
[2] For G1063 I know G1492 (PerfActInd) the forwardness of G4288 your G5216 mind G4288, for which G3739 I boast G2744 (PresMidPasDepInd) of G5228 you G5216 to them of Macedonia G3110, that G3754 Achaia G882 was ready G3903 (PerfPasInd) a year G4070 ago G575; and G2532 your G5216 zeal G2205 G1537 hath provoked G2042 (AorActInd) very many G4119.
[3] Yet G1161 have I sent G3992 (AorActInd) the brethren G80, lest G3363 our G2257 boasting G2745 of G5228 you G5216 should be in vain G2758 (AorPasSubj) in G1722 this G5129 behalf G3313; that G2443, as G2531 I said G3004 (ImpfActInd), ye may be G5600 (PresSubj) ready G3903 (PerfPasPtc):
[4] Lest G3381 haply G4458 if G1437 they of Macedonia G3110 come G2064 (Aor2ActSubj) with G4862 me G1698, and G2532 find G2147 (Aor2ActSubj) you G5209 unprepared G532, we G2249 (that G3363 we say G3004 (PresActSubj) not G3363, ye G5210) should be ashamed G2617 (AorPasSubj) in G1722 this same G5026 confident G5287 boasting G2746.
[5] Therefore G3767 I thought G2233 (AorMidDepInd) it necessary G316 to exhort G3870 (AorActInf) the brethren G80, that G2443 they would go before G4281 (Aor2ActSubj) unto G1519 you G5209, and G2532 make up beforehand G4294 (AorActSubj) your G5216 bounty G2129, whereof ye had notice before G4293 (PerfPasPtc), that the same G5026 might be G1511 (PresInf) ready G2092, G3779 as G5613 [a matter of] bounty G2129, and G2532 not G3361 as G5618 [of] covetousness G4124.
[6] But G1161 this G5124 [I say], He which soweth G4687 (PresActPtc) sparingly G5340 shall reap G2325 (FutActInd) also G2532 sparingly G5340; and G2532 he which soweth G4687 (PresActPtc) bountifully G1909 G2129 shall reap G2325 (FutActInd) also G2532 bountifully G1909 G2129.
[7] Every man G1538 according as G2531 he purposeth G4255 (PresMidPasDepInd) in his heart G2588, [so let him give]; not G3361 grudgingly G1537 G3077, or G2228 of G1537 necessity G318: for G1063 God G2316 loveth G25 (PresActInd) a cheerful G2431 giver G1395.
[8] And G1161 God G2316 [is] able G1415 to make G4052 all G3956 grace G5485 abound G4052 (AorActInf) toward G1519 you G5209; that G2443 ye, always G3842 having G2192 (PresActPtc) all G3956 sufficiency G841 in G1722 all G3956 [things], may abound G4052 (PresActSubj) to G1519 every G3956 good G18 work G2041:
[9] (As G2531 it is written G1125 (PerfPasInd), He hath dispersed abroad G4650 (AorActInd); he hath given G1325 (AorActInd) to the poor G3993: his G846 righteousness G1343 remaineth G3306 (PresActInd) for G1519 ever G165.
[10] Now G1161 he that ministereth G2023 (PresActPtc) seed G4690 to the sower G4687 (PresActPtc) both G2532 minister G5524 (AorActOpt) bread G740 for G1519 [your] food G1035, and G2532 multiply G4129 (AorActOpt) your G5216 seed sown G4703, and G2532 increase G837 (AorActOpt) the fruits G1081 of your G5216 righteousness G1343;)
[11] Being enriched G4148 (PresPasPtc) in G1722 every thing G3956 to G1519 all G3956 bountifulness G572, which G3748 causeth G2716 (PresMidPasDepInd) through G1223 us G2257 thanksgiving G2169 to God G2316.
[12] For G3754 the administration G1248 of this G5026 service G3009 not G3756 only G3440 supplieth G2076 (PresInd) G4322 (PresActPtc) the want G5303 of the saints G40, but G235 is abundant G4052 (PresActPtc) also G2532 by G1223 many G4183 thanksgivings G2169 unto God G2316;
[13] Whiles by G1223 the experiment G1382 of this G5026 ministration G1248 they glorify G1392 (PresActPtc) God G2316 for G1909 your G5216 professed G3671 subjection G5292 unto G1519 the gospel G2098 of Christ G5547, and G2532 for [your] liberal G572 distribution G2842 unto G1519 them G846, and G2532 unto G1519 all G3956 [men];
[14] And G2532 by their G846 prayer G1162 for G5228 you G5216, which long after G1971 (PresActPtc) you G5209 for G1223 the exceeding G5235 (PresActPtc) grace G5485 of God G2316 in G1909 you G5213.
[15] G1161 Thanks G5485 [be] unto God G2316 for G1909 his G846 unspeakable G411 gift G1431.

Young’s Literal Translation

2 Corinthians 9 (YLT)

[1] For, indeed, concerning the ministration that is for the saints, it is superfluous for me to write to you,
[2] for I have known your readiness of mind, which in your behalf I boast of to Macedonians, that Achaia hath been prepared a year ago, and the zeal of you did stir up the more part,
[3] and I sent the brethren, that our boasting on your behalf may not be made vain in this respect; that, according as I said, ye may be ready,
[4] lest if Macedonians may come with me, and find you unprepared, we-we may be put to shame (that we say not-ye) in this same confidence of boasting.
[5] Necessary, therefore, I thought it to exhort the brethren, that they may go before to you, and may make up before your formerly announced blessing, that this be ready, as a blessing, and not as covetousness.
[6] And this: He who is sowing sparingly, sparingly also shall reap; and he who is sowing in blessings, in blessings also shall reap;
[7] each one, according as he doth purpose in heart, not out of sorrow or out of necessity, for a cheerful giver doth God love,
[8] and God is able all grace to cause to abound to you, that in every thing always all sufficiency having, ye may abound to every good work,
[9] (according as it hath been written, ‘He dispersed abroad, he gave to the poor, his righteousness doth remain to the age,’)
[10] and may He who is supplying seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness,
[11] in every thing being enriched to all liberality, which doth work through us thanksgiving to God,
[12] because the ministration of this service not only is supplying the wants of the saints, but is also abounding through many thanksgivings to God,
[13] through the proof of this ministration glorifying God for the subjection of your confession to the good news of the Christ, and for the liberality of the fellowship to them and to all,
[14] and by their supplication in your behalf, longing after you because of the exceeding grace of God upon you;
[15] thanks also to God for His unspeakable gift!
