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.

Paũlũ Kũgarũra Mũbango Wake

121:12 Atũm 23:1; 1Athe 2:10Na rĩrĩ, ũndũ ũyũ nĩguo twĩrahagĩra: Thamiri ciitũ nĩcio itũmenyithagia atĩ mĩthiĩre iitũ ĩrĩa tũikaraga nayo gũkũ thĩ, na makĩria ũrĩa tũikaranagia na inyuĩ, nĩ ya ũtheru na ya ũhoro wa ma kuuma kũrĩ Ngai. Tũtiĩkaga ũguo kũringana na ũũgĩ wa thĩ, no nĩ kũringana na wega wa Ngai. 13Nĩgũkorwo tũtiramwandĩkĩra ũndũ o na ũrĩkũ mũtangĩhota gũthoma kana gũtaũkĩrwo nĩguo. Na ngwĩhoka atĩ, 14o ta ũrĩa mũtũmenyete hanini, nĩmũrĩtaũkĩrwo biũ atĩ no mũhote kwĩraha nĩ ũndũ witũ, o ta ũrĩa tũkeeraha nĩ ũndũ wanyu mũthenya ũrĩa wa Mwathani Jesũ.

151:15 1Akor 4:19; Arom 1:11, 13Na tondũ wa ũrĩa ndaarĩ na mwĩhoko wa ũndũ ũcio-rĩ, nĩndabangĩte njũke kwanyu mbere nĩguo mũgunĩke maita meerĩ. 16Ndabangĩte ndĩmũceerere ngĩthiĩ Makedonia, na njokere kũu kwanyu ngiuma Makedonia, na inyuĩ nĩguo mũcooke mũndũme Judea. 171:17 2Akor 10:2, 3Hĩndĩ ĩrĩa ndaabangaga ũndũ ũcio-rĩ, kaĩ ndeekaga ũguo na itherũ? Kana hihi haaragĩria mĩbango yakwa na njĩra ya kĩ-mwĩrĩ nĩguo rĩmwe njugage, “Ĩĩ, ĩĩ,” na rĩrĩa rĩngĩ ngoiga “Aca, aca”?

18No ti-itherũ, o ta ũrĩa Ngai arĩ mwĩhokeku-rĩ, ndũmĩrĩri iitũ kũrĩ inyuĩ ti “Ĩĩ” na rĩngĩ “Aca.” 191:19 Math 4:3; Ahib 13:8Nĩgũkorwo Mũrũ wa Ngai, Jesũ Kristũ, ũrĩa mwahunjĩirio ũhoro wake nĩ niĩ, na Sila, na Timotheo, ũhoro wake ndwarĩ wa kuuga, “Ĩĩ” ũgacooka ũkoiga “Aca,” no thĩinĩ wake gũtũũraga o “Ĩĩ.” 201:20 1Akor 14:16; Arom 15:8Nĩgũkorwo ciĩranĩro cia Ngai, o na cingĩhĩte atĩa-rĩ, ciothe nĩ “Ĩĩ” thĩinĩ wa Kristũ. Na nĩ ũndũ ũcio thĩinĩ wake, ithuĩ tũkoigaga “Ameni” nĩgeetha Ngai agoocagwo. 211:21 1Akor 16:13; 1Joh 2:20, 27Na rĩrĩ, Ngai nĩwe ũtũmaga ithuĩ hamwe na inyuĩ twĩhaande wega thĩinĩ wa Kristũ. Nĩwe watũitĩrĩirie maguta, 22na agĩtwĩkĩra rũũri rwa kuonania atĩ tũrĩ ake, na agĩtũhe Roho wake thĩinĩ wa ngoro ciitũ arĩ ta mwĩhoko wa kũrũgamĩrĩra maũndũ marĩa magooka.
