1:1 Paul, apostle of Jesus Christ, by the will of God, and Timothy, brother, to the church of God that is at Corinth, with all saints that be in all Achaia, Paul an Apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and brother Timotheus. Unto the congregation of god, Which is at Corinthum, with all the saints which are in all Achaia: Paul an Apostle of JESUS CHRIST by the will of God, & our brother Timotheus, to the Church of God, which is at Corinthus with all the Saints, which are in all Achaia: Paul 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:
1:2 grace to you, and peace of God our Father and of the Lord Jesus Christ. Grace be with you and peace from God our father, and from the lord Jesus Christ. Grace be with you, and peace from God our Father, & from the Lord Jesus Christ. Grace be to you and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
1:3 Blessed be God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Father of mercies, and God of all comfort, Blessed be god the father of our lord Jesus the Christ, the father of mercy, and the god of all comfort, Blessed be God even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort, Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort,
1:4 which comforteth us in all our tribulation, that and we may comfort them, that be in all pressure by the exhortation, by which and we be admonished of God. which comforteth us in all our tribulation, insomuch that we are able to comfort them which are troubled, in whatsoever tribulation it be, with the same comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of god. Which comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any affliction by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. Who 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.
1:5 For as the passions of Christ be plenteous in us, so also by Christ our comfort is plenteous. For as the afflictions of Christ are plenteous in us: even so is our consolation plenteous by Christ. For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation aboundeth through Christ. For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.
1:6 Forsooth whether we be troubled, it is for your teaching and health, or we be comforted, for your comfort, either we be admonished, for your admonishing and health. Which worketh in you the suffering of the same passions, which also we suffer, Whether we be troubled for your consolation, and health, which health sheweth her power in that ye suffer the same afflictions which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted for your consolation and health: And whether we be afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is wrought in the enduring of the same sufferings, which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation. And 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.
1:7 that our hope be firm for you; witting for as ye be fellows of passions, so ye shall be also of comfort. yet our hope is stedfast for you inasmuch as we know how that as ye have your part in afflictions, so shall ye be partakers of consolation. And our hope is stedfast concerning you, inasmuch as we know that as ye are partakers of the sufferings, so shall ye be also of the consolation. And our hope of you is stedfast, knowing, that as you are partakers of the sufferings, so shall ye be also of the consolation.
1:8 Forsooth, brethren, we will not you to unknow of our tribulation, that was done in Asia; for over measure we were grieved above virtue, so that it distressed us, yea, to live. Brethren I would not have you ignorant of our trouble, which happened unto us in Asia. For we were grieved out of measure passing strength, so greatly that we despaired even of life. For brethren, we would not have you ignorant of our affliction, which came unto us in Asia, how we were pressed out of measure passing strength, so that we all together doubted, even of life. For 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, in so much that we despaired even of life.
1:9 But we ourselves in ourselves had answer of death, that we be not trusting in ourselves, but in God that raiseth dead men. Also we received an answer of death in ourselves, and that was done because we should not put our trust in ourselves: but in god, which raiseth the dead to life again: Yea, we received the sentence of death in ourselves, because we should not trust in ourselves, but in God, which raiseth the dead. But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead.
1:10 Which delivered us, and delivereth from so great perils, into whom we hope, also yet he shall deliver, Which delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver, on whom we trust, that yet hereafter he will deliver us, Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver us: in whom we trust, that yet here after he will deliver us, Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver us:
1:11 helping and you in prayer for us; that of the persons of many faces of that giving that is in us, by many partners, graces be done to God for us. by the help of your prayer for us: That by the means of many occasions, thanks may be given of many on our behalf, For the grace given unto us. So that ye labour together in prayer for us, that for the gift bestowed upon us for many, thanks may be given by many persons for us. You 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.
1:12 For our glory is this, the witnessing of our conscience, that in simpleness and cleanness of God, and not in fleshly wisdom, but in the grace of God, we lived in this world, but more plenteously to you. Our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that we without doubleness, but with godly pureness: not in fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of god, have had our conversation in the world, and most of all to you-wards. For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly pureness, & not in fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God we have had our conversation in the world, and most of all to you-wards. For 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-wards.
1:13 And we write not other things to you, than those that ye have read and know, and I hope that into the end ye shall know, We write no other things unto you, than that ye read and also know. Yea and I trust ye shall find us unto the end For we write none other things unto you, than that ye read or else that ye acknowledge, & I trust ye shall acknowledge unto the end. For we write none other things unto you, than what you read or acknowledge, and I trust you shall acknowledge even to the end.
1:14 as and ye have known us of part; for we be your glory, as also ye be ours in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. even as ye have found us partly, for we are your rejoicing, even as ye are ours in the day of the lord Jesus. Even as ye have acknowledged us partly, that we are your rejoicing, even as ye are ours, in the day of our Lord Jesus. As also you have acknowledged us in part, that we are your rejoicing, even as ye also are ours, in the day of the Lord Jesus.
1:15 And in this trusting I would first come to you, that ye should have the second grace, And in this confidence was I minded the other time to have come unto you (that ye might have had a double pleasure) And in this confidence was I minded first to come unto you, that ye might have had a double grace, And in this confidence I was minded to come unto you before, that you might have a second benefit:
1:16 and pass by you into Macedonia, and again from Macedonia come to you, and of you be led into Judaea. and to have passed by you into Macedonia, and to have come again out of Macedonia unto you, and to have been led forth to Jewry-ward of you. And to pass by you into Macedonia, & to come again out of Macedonia unto you, and to be led forth toward Judea of you. And 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 Judea.
1:17 Forsooth when I would this thing, whether I used lightness, or those things that I think, I think after the flesh, that there be at me, is and not? When I thuswise was minded: Did I use lightness? Or think I carnally those things which I think? that with me should be yea yea, and nay nay. When I therefore was thus minded, did I use lightness? or mind I those things which I mind, according to the flesh, that with me should be, Yea, yea, and Nay, nay? When 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?
1:18 Forsooth God is true, for our word that was at you, there is not in it, yea and nay. God is faithful: For our preaching unto you, was not yea and nay. Yea, God is faithful, that our word toward you was not Yea, and Nay. But as God is true, our word toward you, was not yea and nay.
1:19 For why Jesus Christ, the Son of God, which is preached among you by us, by me, and Silvanus, and Timothy, there was not in him, is and nay, but in him was is. For god’s son Jesus Christ which was preached among you by us (that is to say by me and Silvanus and Thimotheus) was not yea and nay: but in him it was yea: For the Son of God Jesus Christ who was preached among you by us, that is by me, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, was not Yea, and Nay: but in him it was Yea. For 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.
1:20 Forsooth how many ever be promises of God, in him is. And therefore by him we say Amen to God, to our glory. For all the promises of God, in him are yea: and are in him Amen, unto the laud of god through us. For all the promises of God in him are Yea, and are in him Amen, unto the glory of God through us. For all the promises of God in him are Yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.
1:21 The which soothly confirmeth us with you in Christ, and the which God anointed us, It is god which stablisheth us and you in Christ, and hath anointed us, And it is God which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us. Now he which stablisheth us with you, in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God,
1:22 and that marked us, and gave earnest of the Spirit in our hearts. which hath also sealed us, and hath given the earnest of the spirit into our hearts. Who hath also sealed us, & hath given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts. Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.
1:23 Forsooth I in-call God witness into my soul, that I sparing you came not over to Corinth; I call god for a record unto my soul, that for to favour you withal, I came not any more unto Corinthum. Now, I call God for a record unto my soul, that to spare you, I came not as yet unto Corinthus. Moreover, I call God for a record upon my soul, that to spare you I came not as yet unto Corinth.
1:24 not for we be lords of your faith, but we be helpers of your joy; for through belief ye stand. Not that we be lords over your faith: but helpers of your joy. For by faith ye stand. Not that we have dominion over your faith, but we are helpers of your joy: for by faith ye stand. Not for that we have dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy: for by faith ye stand.
