We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
we are pressed on every side, yet not straitened; perplexed, yet not unto despair;
We are pressured in every way [hedged in], but not crushed; perplexed [unsure of finding a way out], but not driven to despair;
We are hedged in (pressed) on every side [troubled and oppressed in every way], but not cramped or crushed; we suffer embarrassments and are perplexed and unable to find a way out, but not driven to despair;

We are experiencing all kinds of trouble, but we aren’t crushed. We are confused, but we aren’t depressed.
We have all kinds of troubles, but we are not crushed; we are perplexed, yet not in despair;
We often suffer, but we are never crushed. Even when we don’t know what to do, we never give up.
every way afflicted, but not straitened; seeing no apparent issue, but our way not entirely shut up;
in every way being afflicted but not restrained, being perplexed but not utterly-perplexed,
In all things we suffer tribulation, but are not distressed; we are straitened, but are not destitute;
We have troubles all around us, but we are not defeated. We often don’t know what to do, but we don’t give up.
We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair;

We are afflicted on every side, yet are we not in distress: we are in doubt, but yet we despair not.

We have troubles all around us, but we are not defeated. We do not know what to do, but we do not give up.
In every way we’re troubled but not crushed, frustrated but not in despair,
This priceless treasure we hold, so to speak, in a common earthenware jar—to show that the splendid power of it belongs to God and not to us. We are handicapped on all sides, but we are never frustrated; we are puzzled, but never in despair. We are persecuted, but we never have to stand it alone: we may be knocked down but we are never knocked out! Every day we experience something of the death of the Lord Jesus, so that we may also know the power of the life of Jesus in these bodies of ours. Yes, we who are living are always being exposed to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the life of Jesus may be plainly seen in our mortal lives. We are always facing death, but this means that you know more and more of life. Our faith is like that mentioned in the scripture: ‘I believed and therefore I spoke’.
¶ We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are unsure of our lives, but not in despair;
We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not despairing;
We are pressed on every side by troubles, but not crushed and broken. We are perplexed because we don’t know why things happen as they do, but we don’t give up and quit.
If you only look at us, you might well miss the brightness. We carry this precious Message around in the unadorned clay pots of our ordinary lives. That’s to prevent anyone from confusing God’s incomparable power with us. As it is, there’s not much chance of that. You know for yourselves that we’re not much to look at. We’ve been surrounded and battered by troubles, but we’re not demoralized; we’re not sure what to do, but we know that God knows what to do; we’ve been spiritually terrorized, but God hasn’t left our side; we’ve been thrown down, but we haven’t broken. What they did to Jesus, they do to us—trial and torture, mockery and murder; what Jesus did among them, he does in us—he lives! Our lives are at constant risk for Jesus’ sake, which makes Jesus’ life all the more evident in us. While we’re going through the worst, you’re getting in on the best!

We are experiencing trouble on every side, but are not crushed; we are perplexed, but not driven to despair;
We are pushed hard from all sides. But we are not beaten down. We are bewildered. But that doesn’t make us lose hope.
We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair;
We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair;

on every side being in tribulation, but not straitened; perplexed, but not in despair;
