2 Wakorintho 1:1-24

Salamu

11:1 1Kor 1:11; Efe 1:1; Kol 1:1; 2Tim 1:1; Mdo 16:1; 1Kor 10:32; Mdo 18:1; 18:12Barua hii ni kutoka kwangu mimi Paulo, mtume wa Kristo Yesu kwa mapenzi ya Mungu, na Timotheo ndugu yetu,

Kwa kanisa la Mungu lililoko Korintho, pamoja na watakatifu wote walioko Akaya yote:

21:2 Rum 1:7; 1Kor 1:3; Gal 1:3; Flp 1:2; Kol 1:2; Flp 3:1; 1The 1:1Neema na amani itokayo kwa Mungu Baba yetu na kwa Bwana Yesu Kristo iwe nanyi.

Mungu Wa Faraja Yote

31:3 Efe 1:3; 1Pet 1:3; Rum 15:5Ahimidiwe Mungu na Baba wa Bwana wetu Yesu Kristo, Baba wa huruma na Mungu wa faraja yote. 41:4 Isa 49:13; 51:12; 66:13; 2Kor 7:6-13Yeye hutufariji katika taabu zetu, ili tuweze kuwafariji walio katika taabu yoyote kwa faraja ambayo sisi wenyewe tumepokea kutoka kwa Mungu. 51:5 Rum 8:17; 2Kor 4:10; Gal 6:17; Flp 3:10; Kol 1:24; 1Pet 4:13Kama vile mateso ya Kristo yanavyozidi ndani ya maisha yetu, hivyo ndivyo faraja yetu inavyofurika kwa njia ya Kristo. 61:6 2Kor 4:15; 4:17Kama tunataabika, ni kwa ajili ya faraja na wokovu wenu; kama tukifarijiwa, ni kwa ajili ya faraja yenu, iwaleteayo saburi ya mateso yale yale yanayotupata. 71:7 2Kor 1:5; Rum 8:17; 2Tim 2:12Nalo tumaini letu kwenu ni thabiti, kwa sababu tunajua kwamba kama vile mnavyoshiriki mateso yetu, ndivyo pia mnavyoshiriki katika faraja yetu.

81:8 Rum 11:25; 1Kor 15:32; Mdo 2:9Ndugu wapendwa, hatutaki mkose kujua kuhusu zile taabu tulizopata huko Asia. Kwa maana tulilemewa na mizigo sana, kiasi cha kushindwa kuvumilia, hata tulikata tamaa ya kuishi. 91:9 Yer 17:5-7; Yn 5:21Kwa kweli, mioyoni mwetu tulihisi tumekabiliwa na hukumu ya kifo, ili tusijitegemee sisi wenyewe bali tumtegemee Mungu afufuaye wafu. 101:10 Rum 15:31; 1Tim 4:10Yeye aliyetuokoa kwenye hatari kubwa ya kifo na atatuokoa tena. Kwake yeye tumeweka tumaini letu kwamba ataendelea kutuokoa. 111:11 Rum 15:30; Flp 1:19; 2Kor 4:15; 9:11Kama vile mlivyoungana kusaidiana nasi katika maombi, hivyo wengi watatoa shukrani kwa niaba yetu kwa ajili ya baraka za neema tulizopata kwa majibu ya maombi ya wengi.

Paulo Aahirisha Ziara

121:12 Mdo 23:11; 1The 2:10; 2Kor 2:17; 1Kor 1:17; 2:1-13Basi haya ndiyo majivuno yetu: Dhamiri yetu inatushuhudia kwamba tumeenenda katika ulimwengu na hasa katika uhusiano wetu na ninyi, katika utakatifu na uaminifu utokao kwa Mungu. Hatukufanya hivyo kwa hekima ya kidunia bali kwa neema ya Mungu. 13Kwa maana hatuwaandikii mambo ambayo hamwezi kusoma au kuyaelewa. Natumaini kwamba, 141:14 1Kor 1:8kama vile mlivyotuelewa kwa sehemu, mtakuja kuelewa kwa ukamilifu ili mweze kujivuna kwa ajili yetu, kama na sisi tutakavyojivuna kwa ajili yenu katika siku ya Bwana Yesu.

151:15 1Kor 4:19; Rum 1:11-13; 15:29Kwa kuwa nilikuwa na uhakika wa mambo haya, nilitaka nije kwenu kwanza, ili mpate faida mara mbili. 161:16 1Kor 16:5-7; Mdo 16:9; 3Yn 6; Mdo 19:2Nilipanga kuwatembelea nikiwa safarini kwenda Makedonia na kurudi tena kwenu nikitoka Makedonia, ili mnisafirishe katika safari yangu ya kwenda Uyahudi. 171:17 2Kor 10:2-3; 11:18Nilipopanga jambo hili, je, nilikuwa kigeugeu? Au ninafanya mipango yangu kwa hali ya mwili, ili niseme, “Ndiyo, ndiyo” na “Siyo, siyo” wakati huo huo?

181:18 1Kor 1:9Hakika kama Mungu alivyo mwaminifu, maneno yetu kwenu hayajawa “Ndiyo na Siyo.” 191:19 Mt 4:3; Mdo 15:22; 16:1Kwa kuwa Yesu Kristo, Mwana wa Mungu, ambaye tulimhubiri kwenu: Mimi, Silvano1:19 Yaani Sila. na Timotheo, hakuwa “Ndiyo” na “Siyo,” bali kwake yeye siku zote ni “Ndiyo.” 201:20 Rum 15:9Kwa maana ahadi zote za Mungu zilizo katika Kristo ni “Ndiyo.” Kwa sababu hii ni kwake yeye tunasema “Amen” kwa utukufu wa Mungu. 211:21 1Kor 16:13; 1Yn 2:20-27Basi ni Mungu atufanyaye sisi pamoja nanyi kusimama imara katika Kristo. Ametutia mafuta 221:22 Mwa 38:18; Hag 2:23; 2Kor 5:5kwa kututia muhuri wake na kutupa Roho wake mioyoni mwetu kuwa rehani kwa ajili ya kututhibitishia kile kijacho.

231:23 Rum 1:9; 1Kor 4:21; 2Kor 2:1-3; 13:2-10Mungu ni shahidi wangu kwamba ilikuwa ni kwa ajili ya kuwahurumia ninyi sikurudi Korintho. 241:24 1Pet 5:3; Rum 11:20; 1Kor 1:5-11Si kwamba tunatawala imani yenu, bali twatenda kazi pamoja nanyi kwa ajili ya furaha yenu, kwa sababu ni kwa imani mwasimama imara.

King James Version

2 Corinthians 1:1-24

1Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timothy our brother, unto the church of God which is at Corinth, with all the saints which are in all Achaia: 2Grace be to you and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. 3Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; 4Who 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. 5For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ. 6And 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. 7And our hope of you is stedfast, knowing, that as ye are partakers of the sufferings, so shall ye be also of the consolation. 8For we would not, brethren, have you ignorant of our trouble which came to us in Asia, that we were pressed out of measure, above strength, insomuch that we despaired even of life: 9But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead: 10Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver us; 11Ye also helping together by prayer for us, that for the gift bestowed upon us by the means of many persons thanks may be given by many on our behalf.

12For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward. 13For we write none other things unto you, than what ye read or acknowledge; and I trust ye shall acknowledge even to the end; 14As also ye have acknowledged us in part, that we are your rejoicing, even as ye also are ours in the day of the Lord Jesus.

15And in this confidence I was minded to come unto you before, that ye might have a second benefit; 16And to pass by you into Macedonia, and to come again out of Macedonia unto you, and of you to be brought on my way toward Judaea. 17When I therefore was thus minded, did I use lightness? or the things that I purpose, do I purpose according to the flesh, that with me there should be yea yea, and nay nay? 18But as God is true, our word toward you was not yea and nay. 19For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us, even by me and Silvanus and Timotheus, was not yea and nay, but in him was yea. 20For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us. 21Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God; 22Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts. 23Moreover I call God for a record upon my soul, that to spare you I came not as yet unto Corinth. 24Not for that we have dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy: for by faith ye stand.
