II. Corinthians
8
1 Moreover 1161, brethren 80, we do 1107 you to wit 1107 of the grace 5485 of God 2316 bestowed 1325 on 1722 the churches 1577 of Macedonia 3109;
2 How that in a great 4183 trial 1382 of affliction 2347 the abundance 4050 of their joy 5479 and their deep 899 poverty 4432 abounded 4052 unto the riches 4149 of their liberality 572.
3 For to their power 1411, I bear 3140 record 3140, yea, and beyond 5228 their power 1411 they were willing 830 of themselves 830;
4 Praying 1189 us with much 4183 intreaty 3874 that we would receive 1209 the gift 5485, and take upon us the fellowship 2842 of the ministering 1248 to the saints 40.
5 And this they did, not as we hoped 1679, but first 4412 gave 1325 their own selves 1438 to the Lord 2962, and unto us by the will 2307 of God 2316.
6 Insomuch 1519 that we desired 3870 Titus 5103, that as he had begun 4278, so 3779 he would also 2532 finish 2005 in you the same 846 grace 5485 also 2532.
7 Therefore 235, as ye abound 4052 in every 3956 thing, in faith 4102, and utterance 3056, and knowledge 1108, and in all 3956 diligence 4710, and in your 5209 love 26 to us, see that ye abound 4052 in this 5124 grace 5485 also 2532.
8 I speak 3004 not by commandment 2003, but by occasion 1223 of the forwardness 4710 of others 2087, and to prove 1381 the sincerity 1103 of your 5212 love 26.
9 For ye know 1097 the grace 5485 of our Lord 2962 Jesus 2424 Christ 5547, that, though he was rich 4145, yet for your 5216 sakes he became 4433 poor 4433, that ye through his poverty 4432 might be rich 4147.
10 And herein 5129 I give 1325 my advice 1106: for this 5124 is expedient 4851 for you, who 3748 have begun 4278 before 4278, not only 3440 to do 4160, but also 2532 to be forward 2309 a year 4070 ago 575.
11 Now 3570 therefore 2532 perform 2005 the doing 4160 of it; that as 2509 there was a readiness 4288 to will 2309, so 3779 there may be a performance 2005 also 2532 out of that which ye have 2192.
12 For if there 1487 be first 4295 a willing 4288 mind 4288, it is accepted 2144 according 2526 to that a man 5100 hath 2192, and not according 2526 to that he hath 2192 not.
13 For I mean not that other 243 men be eased 425, and ye burdened 2347:
14 But by an equality 2471, that now 3568 at 1722 this 3568 time 2540 your 5216 abundance 4051 may be a supply for their want 5303, that their abundance 4051 also 2532 may be a supply for your 5216 want 5303: that there may be equality 2471:
15 As it is written 1125, He that had gathered much 4183 had nothing 3756 over 4121; and he that had gathered little 3641 had no 3756 lack 1641.
16 But thanks 5485 be to God 2316, which 3588 put 1325 the same 846 earnest 4710 care 4710 into 1722 the heart 2588 of Titus 5103 for you.
17 For indeed 3303 he accepted 1209 the exhortation 3874; but being 5225 more 4707 forward 4707, of his own 830 accord 830 he went 1831 unto you.
18 And we have sent 4842 with him the brother 80, whose 3739 praise 1868 is in the gospel 2098 throughout 1223 all 3956 the churches 1577;
19 And not that only 3440, but who was also 2532 chosen 5500 of the churches 1577 to travel 4898 with us with this 5124 grace 5485, which 3588 is administered 1247 by us to the glory 1391 of the same 3778 Lord 2962, and declaration of your 5216 ready 4288 mind 4288:
20 Avoiding 4724 this 5124, that no 3361 man 5100 should blame 3469 us in this 5026 abundance 100 which 3588 is administered 1247 by us:
21 Providing 4306 for honest 2570 things, not only 3440 in the sight 1799 of the Lord 2962, but also 2532 in the sight 1799 of men 444.
22 And we have sent 4842 with them our brother 80, whom 3739 we have oftentimes 4178 proved 1381 diligent 4705 in many 4183 things, but now 3570 much 4183 more 4707 diligent 4707, upon the great 4183 confidence 4006 which 3588 I have in you.
23 Whether 1535 any do enquire of Titus 5103, he is my partner 2844 and fellowhelper 4904 concerning 1519 you: or 1535 our brethren 80 be enquired of, they are the messengers 652 of the churches 1577, and the glory 1391 of Christ 5547.
24 Wherefore 3767 shew 1731 ye to them, and before 4383 the churches 1577, the proof 1732 of your 5216 love 26, and of our boasting 2746 on 5228 your 5216 behalf 5228.
