2 Corinthians 1

Introduction

1Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and Timothy our brother,

To the church of God which is at Corinth with all the [a]saints who are throughout Achaia:

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction so that we will be able to comfort those who are in [b]any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. For just as the sufferings of Christ are [c]ours in abundance, so also our comfort is abundant through Christ. But if we are afflicted, it is for your comfort and salvation; or if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which is effective in the patient enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer; and our hope for you is firmly grounded, knowing that as you are sharers of our sufferings, so also you are sharers of our comfort.

For we do not want you to be unaware, brethren, of our affliction which came to us in [d]Asia, that we were burdened excessively, beyond our strength, so that we despaired even of life; [e]indeed, we had the sentence of death within ourselves so that we would not trust in ourselves, but in God who raises the dead; 10 who delivered us from so great a peril of death, and will deliver us, [f]He on whom we have set our hope. And He will yet deliver us, 11 you also joining in helping us through your prayers, so that thanks may be given by many persons on our behalf for the favor bestowed on us through the prayers of many.

Paul’s Integrity

12 For our [g]proud confidence is this: the testimony of our conscience, that in holiness and godly sincerity, not in fleshly wisdom but in the grace of God, we have conducted ourselves in the world, and especially toward you. 13 For we write nothing else to you than what you read and understand, and I hope you will understand until the end; 14 just as you also partially did understand us, that we are your reason to be proud as you also are ours, in the day of our Lord Jesus.

15 In this confidence I intended at first to come to you, so that you might [h]twice receive a [i]blessing; 16 [j]that is, to pass [k]your way into Macedonia, and again from Macedonia to come to you, and by you to be helped on my journey to Judea. 17 Therefore, I was not vacillating when I intended to do this, was I? Or what I purpose, do I purpose according to the flesh, so that with me there will be yes, yes and no, no at the same time? 18 But as God is faithful, our word to you is not yes and no. 19 For the Son of God, Christ Jesus, who was preached among you by us—by me and Silvanus and Timothy—was not yes and no, but is yes in Him. 20 For as many as are the promises of God, in Him they are yes; therefore also through Him is our Amen to the glory of God through us. 21 Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and anointed us is God, 22 who also sealed us and gave us the Spirit in our hearts as a [l]pledge.

23 But I call God as witness [m]to my soul, that to spare you I did not come again to Corinth. 24 Not that we lord it over your faith, but are workers with you for your joy; for in your faith you are standing firm.

Momma yɛnna Onyankopɔn a ɔyɛ yɛn Awurade Yesu Kristo Agya no a ɔyɛ adom Agya na ɔyɛ Onyankopɔn a mmoa nyinaa fi no no ase. Ɔboa yɛn wɔ yɛn amane nyinaa mu na yɛnam mmoa a yɛn ankasa anya afi Onyankopɔn nkyɛn no so atumi aboa afoforo a wɔwɔ amane ahorow mu no. Sɛnea yɛwɔ Kristo amanehunu mu kyɛfa no, saa ara nso na yenya Kristo mmoa a ɛdɔɔso no. Sɛ yehu amane a, efi mo mmoa ne mo nkwagye nti.

Yenim sɛ, sɛnea mo ne yɛn hu amane no, saa ara nso na mmoa a yenya no, munya bi.

Anuanom, yɛpɛ sɛ yɛtwe mo adwene ba ɔhaw a ɛtoo yɛn wɔ Asia mantam mu no so. Amane a yɛfaa mu no so, na na emu yɛ duru enti yɛn asetena mu anidaso nyinaa yerae. Yɛtee nka sɛ wɔabu yɛn kumfɔ. Saa asɛm yi sii sɛnea ɛbɛyɛ a yɛremfa yɛn ho nto yɛn ankasa so na mmom, yɛde yɛn ho bɛto Onyankopɔn a ɔma awufo sɔre no so. 10 Wayi yɛn afi saa owu amanehunu yi mu na obegye yɛn. Ɔno na yɛde yɛn ani ato no so sɛ, sɛ mokɔ so bɔ mpae ma yɛn a, 11 obegye yɛn bio. Eyi kyerɛ sɛ, wobebua mpae dodow biara a mobɔ ma yɛn no na Onyankopɔn behyira yɛn, na dodow no ara ama wɔn nne so de ada no ase ama yɛn.

Paulo sesa ne nhyehyɛe

12 Nea yɛhoahoa yɛn ho wɔ mu ne sɛ: yɛn ahonim kyerɛ yɛn sɛ, yɛn asetena wɔ wiase ha, ne titiriw no, ayɔnkofa a ɛda yɛne mo ntam no, fi Onyankopɔn nokware turodoo a efi tumi a efi n’adom mu na emfi onipa nimdeɛ mu. 13 Nsɛm a mubetumi akenkan, ate ase nko na yɛkyerɛw de brɛ mo.

19 Efisɛ, Yesu Kristo, Onyankopɔn Ba no a Silas ne Timoteo ne m’ankasa kaa ne ho asɛm kyerɛɛ mo no nyɛ “Yiw” ne “Dabi” Nyankopɔn Ba. Yesu yɛ “Yiw” ma Onyankopɔn 20 na ɔno na ɔyɛ “Yiw” ma Onyankopɔn bɔhyɛ nyinaa. Eyi nti na ɛnam Yesu Kristo so nti yɛka yɛn “Amen” de hyɛ Onyankopɔn anuonyam no. 21 Afei Onyankopɔn no ankasa na ɔma yɛne mo tumi gyina pintinn wɔ Kristo mu. Ɔno na ɔsraa yɛn 22 faa yɛn sɛ ne de, ɛnna ɔde ne Honhom Kronkron no hyɛɛ yɛn koma mu de sii nea ɔwɔ ma yɛn nyinaa so dua.

23 Mefrɛ Onyankopɔn sɛ m’adanse. Onim me koma mu. Sɛnea ɛbɛyɛ a mubenya kwan agye mo ahome nti na mankɔ Korinto no. 24 Ɛnyɛ yɛn adwene ne sɛ yɛbɛhyɛ mo ama mo agye biribi adi, efisɛ mugyina pintinn wɔ gyidi mu. Na mmom, mo ahotɔ nti na yɛne mo yɛ adwuma.
