2:1 And I ordained this same thing at me, that I should not come again in sorrow to you. but I determined this in myself, that I would not come again to you in heaviness. But I determined thus in myself, that I would not come again to you in heaviness. But I determined this with myself, that I would not come again to you in heaviness.
2:2 For if I make you sorry, who is he that gladdeth me, but he that is sorrowful of me? For if I make you sorry: who is it that should make me glad, but the same which is made sorry by me? For if I make you sorry, who is he then that should make me glad, but the same which is made sorry by me? For if I make you sorry, who is he then that maketh me glad, but the same which is made sorry by me.
2:3 And this same thing I wrote to you, that when I shall come, I have not sorrow upon sorrow, of them of whom it behooved me to have joy. Trusting in you all, that my joy is of you all. And I wrote this same epistle unto you, lest if I came, I should take heaviness of them, of whom I ought to rejoice. Certainly this confidence have I in you all, that my joy is the joy of you all. And I wrote this same thing unto you, lest when I came, I should take heaviness of them, of whom I ought to rejoice: this confidence have I in you all, that my joy is the joy of you all. 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.
2:4 For of much tribulation and anguish of heart I wrote to you by many tears, not that ye be sorry, but that ye know what charity I have more plenteously in you. For in great affliction and anguish of heart I wrote unto you with many tears: not to make you sorry, but that ye might perceive the love which I have most specially unto you. For in great affliction, and anguish of heart I wrote unto you with many tears: not that ye should be made sorry, but that ye might perceive the love which I have, specially unto you. For out of much affliction and anguish of heart, I wrote unto you with many tears, not that you should be grieved, but that ye might know the love which I have more abundantly unto you.
2:5 For if any man hath made me sorrowful, he hath not made me sorrowful but in part, that I charge not you all. If any man hath caused sorrow, the same hath not made me sorry: but partly, lest I should grieve you all. And if any hath caused sorrow, the same hath not made me sorry, but partly (lest I should more charge him) you all. But if any have caused grief, he hath not grieved me, but in part: that I may not overcharge you all.
2:6 This blaming that is made of many, sufficeth to him, that is such a manner man; It is sufficient unto the same man that he was rebuked of many. It is sufficient unto the same man, that he was rebuked of many. Sufficient to such a man is this punishment, which was inflicted of many.
2:7 so that on the contrary ye rather forgive and comfort, lest peradventure he that is such a manner man, be sopped up by more great heaviness. So that now contrariwise ye ought to forgive him and comfort him: lest that same should be swallowed up with overmuch heaviness. So that now contrariwise ye ought rather to forgive him and comfort him lest the same should be swallowed up with overmuch heaviness. So that contrariwise, ye ought rather to forgive him, and comfort him, lest perhaps, such a one should be swallowed up with overmuch sorrow.
2:8 For which thing I beseech you, that ye confirm charity into him. Wherefore I exhort you, that love may have strength over him. Wherefore, I pray you, that you would confirm your love towards him. Wherefore I beseech you, that you would confirm your love towards him.
2:9 For why therefore and I wrote this, that I know your proof, whether in all things ye be obedient. For this cause verily did I write, that I might know the proof of you, whether ye should be obedient in all things. For this cause also did I write, that I might know the proof of you, whether ye would be obedient in all things. For to this end also did I write, that I might know the proof of you, whether ye be obedient in all things.
2:10 For to whom ye have forgiven any thing, also I have forgiven. For I, that that I forgave, if I forgave any thing, have forgiven for you in the person of Christ, To whom ye forgive any thing, I forgive also. And verily if I forgave any thing, to whom I forgave it for your sakes forgave I it, in the room of Christ, To whom ye forgive any thing, I forgive also: for verily if I forgave any thing, to whom I forgave it, for your sakes forgave I it in the sight of Christ, 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,
2:11 that we be not deceived of Satan; soothly we unknow not his thoughts. lest Satan should prevent us. For his thoughts are not unknown unto us. Lest Satan should circumvent us: for we are not ignorant of his enterprises. Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.
2:12 Forsooth when I had come to Troas for the gospel of Christ, and a door was opened to me in the Lord, When I was come to Troada for Christ’s gospel’s sake (and a great door was opened unto me of the lord) Furthermore, when I came to Troas to preach Christ’s Gospel, & a door was opened unto me of the Lord, Furthermore when I came to Troas, to preach Christ’s Gospel, and a door was opened unto me of the Lord,
2:13 I had not rest in my spirit, for I found not my brother Titus, but I saying to them farewell, passed into Macedonia. I had no rest in my spirit, because I found not Titus my brother: but took my leave of them and went my way into Macedonia. I had no rest in my spirit, because I found not Titus my brother, but took my leave of them, and went away into Macedonia. 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.
2:14 Therefore be thankings to God, that ever maketh us to have victory in Christ Jesus, and sheweth by us the odour of his knowing in each place; Thanks be unto God which always giveth us the victory in Christ, and openeth the savour of his knowledge by us in every place. Now thanks be unto God which always maketh us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place. 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.
2:15 for we be the good odour of Christ to God, in these that be made safe, and in these that perish. For we are unto god the sweet savour of Christ, both among them that are saved, and also among them which perish: For we are unto God the sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them which perish. For we are unto God, a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish.
2:16 Soothly to others we be odour of death into death, but to the others we be odour of life into life. And to these things who is so able? to the one part are we the savour of death unto death: unto the other part are we the savour of life unto life. And who is meet unto these things? 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? 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?
2:17 Soothly we be not as full many, adulterating the word of God, but of cleanness, but as of God, before God in Christ we speak. For we are not as many are which chop and change with the word of god: but as they which speak of pureness, and as they which speak of God in the sight of God, so speak we in Christ. For we are not as many, which make merchandise of the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God in the sight of God speak we in Christ. 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.
