2 Corinthians 1:3–11

gBlessed be hGod, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; iWho comforteth us in all our tribulation, jthat we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, iby the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. For as kthe sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ. And whether we be afflicted, lmit is for your consolation and msalvation, which ||nis effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation. And our hope of you is stedfast, knowing, that oas ye are partakers of the sufferings, opso shall ye be also of the consolation. For qwe would not, brethren, have you ignorant of rour trouble which came to us in sAsia, that we were pressed out of measure, above strength, insomuch that we tdespaired even of life: But ttwe had the ||sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not utrust in ourselves, but vin God wwhich raiseth the dead: 10 xWho delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver us; 11 yYe also helping together by prayer for us, that for the gift bestowed upon us zby the means of many persons thanks may be given by many on our behalf.
