2 Corinthians 2


2 Cor 2:1 But I determined this for my own sake, that I would not come to you in sorrow again.
2 Cor 2:2 For if I cause you sorrow, who then makes me glad but the one whom I made sorrowful?
2 Cor 2:3 This is the very thing I wrote you, so that when I came, I would not have sorrow from those who ought to make me rejoice; having confidence in you all that my joy would be the joy of you all.
2 Cor 2:4 For out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote to you with many tears; not so that you would be made sorrowful, but that you might know the love which I have especially for you.
2 Cor 2:5 But if any has caused sorrow, he has caused sorrow not to me, but in some degree"in order not to say too much"to all of you.
2 Cor 2:6 Sufficient for such a one is this punishment which was inflicted by the majority,
2 Cor 2:7 so that on the contrary you should rather forgive and comfort him, otherwise such a one might be overwhelmed by excessive sorrow.
2 Cor 2:8 Wherefore I urge you to reaffirm your love for him.
2 Cor 2:9 For to this end also I wrote, so that I might put you to the test, whether you are obedient in all things.
2 Cor 2:10 But one whom you forgive anything, I forgive also; for indeed what I have forgiven, if I have forgiven anything, I did it for your sakes in the presence of Christ,
2 Cor 2:11 so that no advantage would be taken of us by Satan, for we are not ignorant of his schemes.
2 Cor 2:12 Now when I came to Troas for the gospel of Christ and when a door was opened for me in the Lord,
2 Cor 2:13 I had no rest for my spirit, not finding Titus my brother; but taking my leave of them, I went on to Macedonia.
2 Cor 2:14 But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and manifests through us the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place.
2 Cor 2:15 For we are a fragrance of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing;
2 Cor 2:16 to the one an aroma from death to death, to the other an aroma from life to life. And who is adequate for these things?
2 Cor 2:17 For we are not like many, peddling the word of God, but as from sincerity, but as from God, we speak in Christ in the sight of God.

2 Cor 2:1 But I determined this with myself, that I would not come again to you in heaviness. 2 Cor 2:1 But I determined this for my own sake, that I would not come to you in sorrow again. 2 Cor 2:1 ἔκρινα γὰρ ἐμαυτῶ τοῦτο, τὸ μὴ πάλιν ἐν λύπῃ πρὸς ὑμᾶς ἐλθεῖν·
2 Cor 2:2 For if I make you sorry, who is he then that maketh me glad, but the same which is made sorry by me? 2 Cor 2:2 For if I cause you sorrow, who then makes me glad but the one whom I made sorrowful? 2 Cor 2:2 εἰ γὰρ ἐγὼ λυπῶ ὑμᾶς, καὶ τίς ὁ εὐφραίνων με εἰ μὴ ὁ λυπούμενος ἐξ ἐμοῦ;
2 Cor 2:3 And I wrote this same unto you, lest, when I came, I should have sorrow from them of whom I ought to rejoice; having confidence in you all, that my joy is the joy of you all. 2 Cor 2:3 This is the very thing I wrote you, so that when I came, I would not have sorrow from those who ought to make me rejoice; having confidence in you all that my joy would be the joy of you all. 2 Cor 2:3 καὶ ἔγραψα τοῦτο αὐτὸ ἵνα μὴ ἐλθὼν λύπην σχῶ ἀφ᾽ ὧν ἔδει με χαίρειν, πεποιθὼς ἐπὶ πάντας ὑμᾶς ὅτι ἡ ἐμὴ χαρὰ πάντων ὑμῶν ἐστιν.
2 Cor 2:4 For out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote unto you with many tears; not that ye should be grieved, but that ye might know the love which I have more abundantly unto you. 2 Cor 2:4 For out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote to you with many tears; not so that you would be made sorrowful, but that you might know the love which I have especially for you. 2 Cor 2:4 ἐκ γὰρ πολλῆς θλίψεως καὶ συνοχῆς καρδίας ἔγραψα ὑμῖν διὰ πολλῶν δακρύων, οὐχ ἵνα λυπηθῆτε ἀλλὰ τὴν ἀγάπην ἵνα γνῶτε ἣν ἔχω περισσοτέρως εἰς ὑμᾶς.
2 Cor 2:5 But if any have caused grief, he hath not grieved me, but in part: that I may not overcharge you all. 2 Cor 2:5 But if any has caused sorrow, he has caused sorrow not to me, but in some degree"in order not to say too much"to all of you. 2 Cor 2:5 εἰ δέ τις λελύπηκεν, οὐκ ἐμὲ λελύπηκεν, ἀλλὰ ἀπὸ μέρους, ἵνα μὴ ἐπιβαρῶ, πάντας ὑμᾶς.
2 Cor 2:6 Sufficient to such a man is this punishment, which was inflicted of many. 2 Cor 2:6 Sufficient for such a one is this punishment which was inflicted by the majority, 2 Cor 2:6 ἱκανὸν τῶ τοιούτῳ ἡ ἐπιτιμία αὕτη ἡ ὑπὸ τῶν πλειόνων,
2 Cor 2:7 So that contrariwise ye ought rather to forgive him, and comfort him, lest perhaps such a one should be swallowed up with overmuch sorrow. 2 Cor 2:7 so that on the contrary you should rather forgive and comfort him, otherwise such a one might be overwhelmed by excessive sorrow. 2 Cor 2:7 ὥστε τοὐναντίον μᾶλλον ὑμᾶς χαρίσασθαι καὶ παρακαλέσαι, μή πως τῇ περισσοτέρᾳ λύπῃ καταποθῇ ὁ τοιοῦτος.
2 Cor 2:8 Wherefore I beseech you that ye would confirm your love toward him. 2 Cor 2:8 Wherefore I urge you to reaffirm your love for him. 2 Cor 2:8 διὸ παρακαλῶ ὑμᾶς κυρῶσαι εἰς αὐτὸν ἀγάπην·
2 Cor 2:9 For to this end also did I write, that I might know the proof of you, whether ye be obedient in all things. 2 Cor 2:9 For to this end also I wrote, so that I might put you to the test, whether you are obedient in all things. 2 Cor 2:9 εἰς τοῦτο γὰρ καὶ ἔγραψα ἵνα γνῶ τὴν δοκιμὴν ὑμῶν, εἰ εἰς πάντα ὑπήκοοί ἐστε.
2 Cor 2:10 To whom ye forgive any thing, I forgive also: for if I forgave any thing, to whom I forgave it, for your sakes forgave I it in the person of Christ; 2 Cor 2:10 But one whom you forgive anything, I forgive also; for indeed what I have forgiven, if I have forgiven anything, I did it for your sakes in the presence of Christ, 2 Cor 2:10 ᾧ δέ τι χαρίζεσθε, κἀγώ· καὶ γὰρ ἐγὼ ὃ κεχάρισμαι, εἴ τι κεχάρισμαι, δι᾽ ὑμᾶς ἐν προσώπῳ χριστοῦ,
2 Cor 2:11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices. 2 Cor 2:11 so that no advantage would be taken of us by Satan, for we are not ignorant of his schemes. 2 Cor 2:11 ἵνα μὴ πλεονεκτηθῶμεν ὑπὸ τοῦ σατανᾶ, οὐ γὰρ αὐτοῦ τὰ νοήματα ἀγνοοῦμεν.
2 Cor 2:12 Furthermore, when I came to Troas to preach Christ's gospel, and a door was opened unto me of the Lord, 2 Cor 2:12 Now when I came to Troas for the gospel of Christ and when a door was opened for me in the Lord, 2 Cor 2:12 ἐλθὼν δὲ εἰς τὴν τρῳάδα εἰς τὸ εὐαγγέλιον τοῦ χριστοῦ, καὶ θύρας μοι ἀνεῳγμένης ἐν κυρίῳ,
2 Cor 2:13 I had no rest in my spirit, because I found not Titus my brother: but taking my leave of them, I went from thence into Macedonia. 2 Cor 2:13 I had no rest for my spirit, not finding Titus my brother; but taking my leave of them, I went on to Macedonia. 2 Cor 2:13 οὐκ ἔσχηκα ἄνεσιν τῶ πνεύματί μου τῶ μὴ εὑρεῖν με τίτον τὸν ἀδελφόν μου, ἀλλὰ ἀποταξάμενος αὐτοῖς ἐξῆλθον εἰς μακεδονίαν.
2 Cor 2:14 Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place. 2 Cor 2:14 But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and manifests through us the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place. 2 Cor 2:14 τῶ δὲ θεῶ χάρις τῶ πάντοτε θριαμβεύοντι ἡμᾶς ἐν τῶ χριστῶ καὶ τὴν ὀσμὴν τῆς γνώσεως αὐτοῦ φανεροῦντι δι᾽ ἡμῶν ἐν παντὶ τόπῳ·
2 Cor 2:15 For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish: 2 Cor 2:15 For we are a fragrance of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing; 2 Cor 2:15 ὅτι χριστοῦ εὐωδία ἐσμὲν τῶ θεῶ ἐν τοῖς σῳζομένοις καὶ ἐν τοῖς ἀπολλυμένοις,
2 Cor 2:16 To the one we are the savour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life. And who is sufficient for these things? 2 Cor 2:16 to the one an aroma from death to death, to the other an aroma from life to life. And who is adequate for these things? 2 Cor 2:16 οἷς μὲν ὀσμὴ ἐκ θανάτου εἰς θάνατον, οἷς δὲ ὀσμὴ ἐκ ζωῆς εἰς ζωήν. καὶ πρὸς ταῦτα τίς ἱκανός;
2 Cor 2:17 For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ. 2 Cor 2:17 For we are not like many, peddling the word of God, but as from sincerity, but as from God, we speak in Christ in the sight of God. 2 Cor 2:17 οὐ γάρ ἐσμεν ὡς οἱ πολλοὶ καπηλεύοντες τὸν λόγον τοῦ θεοῦ, ἀλλ᾽ ὡς ἐξ εἰλικρινείας, ἀλλ᾽ ὡς ἐκ θεοῦ κατέναντι θεοῦ ἐν χριστῶ λαλοῦμεν.
