2 Corinthians 1:3-7 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

Blessed be God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Father of mercies, and God of all comfort,

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].

For as the passions of Christ be plenteous in us, so also by Christ our comfort is plenteous.

And whether we be in tribulation, for your tribulation and health, either we be comforted, for your comfort[a], either we be admonished, for your admonishing and health. Which worketh in you the suffering of the same passions, which also we suffer,

that our hope be firm for you; witting for as ye be fellows of passions, so ye shall be also of comfort.

  1. 2 Corinthians 1:6 Forsooth whether we be troubled, or be pursued, it is for your teaching and health, or we be comforted, for your comfort

2 Corinthians 1:3-7 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

Blessed be God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercy and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, insomuch that we are able to comfort others who are troubled, in whatsoever tribulation it may be, with the same comfort that we ourselves are comforted with by God. For as the afflictions of Christ are plentiful in us, so also is our consolation plentiful by Christ.

Whether we are troubled regarding your consolation and salvation, which salvation shows her power in that you suffer the same afflictions that we also suffer, or whether we are comforted regarding your consolation and salvation, yet our hope is steadfast for you, inasmuch as we know that as you have your part in afflictions, so shall you be partakers of consolation.

2 Corinthians 1:3-7 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

[a][b]Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of [c]mercies, and the God of all comfort,

Which comforteth us in all our tribulation, [d]that we may be able to comfort them which are in any affliction by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.

For as the [e]sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation aboundeth through Christ.

[f]And whether we be afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is [g]wrought in the enduring of the same sufferings, which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation.

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.

  1. 2 Corinthians 1:3 He beginneth after his manner with thanksgiving, which notwithstanding (otherwise than he was wont) he applieth to himself: beginning his Epistle with the setting forth of the dignity of his Apostleship, constrained (as it should seem) by their importunity, which took an occasion to despise him by reason of his miseries. But he answereth that he is not so afflicted, but that his comforts do exceed his afflictions, showing the ground of them, even the mercy of God the Father in Jesus Christ.
  2. 2 Corinthians 1:3 To him be praise and glory given.
  3. 2 Corinthians 1:3 Most merciful.
  4. 2 Corinthians 1:4 The Lord doth comfort us to this end and purpose, that we may so much the more surely comfort others.
  5. 2 Corinthians 1:5 The miseries which we suffer for Christ, or which Christ suffereth in us.
  6. 2 Corinthians 1:6 He denieth that either his afflictions wherewith he was often afflicted, or the consolations which he received of God, may justly be despised, seeing that the Corinthians both might and ought to take great occasion to be confirmed by either of them.
  7. 2 Corinthians 1:6 Although salvation be given us freely, yet because there is a way appointed us wherewith we must come to it, which is the race of an innocent and upright life, which we must run, therefore we are said to work our salvation, Philippians 2:12. And because it is God only that of his free good will worketh all things in us, therefore is he said to work the salvation in us by those selfsame things by which we must pass to everlasting life, after that we have once overcome all encumbrances.

2 Corinthians 1:3-7 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ. And whether we be 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 be comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation. And our hope of you is stedfast, knowing, that as ye are partakers of the sufferings, so shall ye be also of the consolation.
