Paul, an apostle of A1YHWH B45haMashiach by the will of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)), and A75Timothy our brother, unto the assembly of God (Elohim) who is at Corinth, with all the holy ones who are in all Achaia;
2 Grace be to you and peace from God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)) our Father, and from our Lord (Adonai) YHWH haMashiach.
3 Blessed be God (Elohim), even the Father of our Lord (Adonai) YHWH haMashiach, the Father of mercies, and the God (Elohim) of all comfort;
4 Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them who are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)).
5 For as the sufferings of the Messiah (haMashiach) abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by the Messiah (haMashiach).
6 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.
7 And our hope of you is stedfast, knowing, that as you are partakers of the sufferings, so shall you be also of the consolation.
8 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, insomuch that we despaired even of life;
9 But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God (Elohim) who raiseth the dead;
10 Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver; in whom we trust that He will yet deliver us;
11 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.
12 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 (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)), we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly toward you.
13 For we write none other things unto you than what you read or acknowledge; and I trust you shall acknowledge even to the end;
14 As also you have acknowledged us in part, that we are your rejoicing, even as you also are ours in the day of our Lord (Adonai) YHWH.
15 And in this confidence I was minded to come unto you before, that you might have a second benefit;
16 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 Judah (Yehudah).
17 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?
18 But as יהוה (YHWH) is true, our word toward you was not yea and nay.
19 For the B47Humanity of El, YHWH haMashiach, who was preached among you by us, even by me and Silvanus and Timotheus, was not yea and nay, but in Him was yea.
20 For all the promises of God (Elohim) in Him are yea, and in Him Amen, unto the glory of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)) by us.
21 Now He who stablisheth us with you in Messiah (Mashiach), and hath anointed us, is יהוה (YHWH);
22 Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.
23 Moreover I call יהוה (YHWH) for a record upon my soul, that to spare you I came not as yet unto Corinth.
24 Not for that we have dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy; for by faith you stand.
