13 [a]And because we have the same [b]spirit of faith, according as it is written, (A)I believed, and therefore have I spoken, we also believe, and therefore speak,

14 Knowing that he which hath raised up the Lord Jesus, shall raise us up also by Jesus, and shall set us with you.

15 [c]For all things are for your sakes, [d]that that most plenteous grace by the thanksgiving of many, may redound to the praise of God.

  1. 2 Corinthians 4:13 He declareth the former sentence, showing that he and his fellows die in a sort to purchase life to others, but yet notwithstanding they are partakers of the same life with them: because they themselves do first believe that, which they propound to others to believe, to wit, that they also shall be saved together with them in Christ.
  2. 2 Corinthians 4:13 The same faith by the inspiration of the same Spirit.
  3. 2 Corinthians 4:15 He showeth how this constancy is preserved in them, to wit, because they respect God’s glory, and the salvation of the Churches committed unto them.
  4. 2 Corinthians 4:15 When it shall please God to deliver me, and restore me to you, that exceeding benefit which shall be poured upon me, shall in like sort redound to the glory of God, by the thanksgiving of many.

13 It is written: “I believed; therefore I have spoken.”[a](A) Since we have that same spirit of[b] faith,(B) we also believe and therefore speak, 14 because we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead(C) will also raise us with Jesus(D) and present us with you to himself.(E) 15 All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving(F) to overflow to the glory of God.
