2 Corinthians 1:3-11
You help us by prayer
We set our hope in His deliverance.
To make us rely on God.
We don’t want you to be ignorant of our severe affliction.
Our hope for you is unshaken.
Our affliction is for your comfort.
We share in comfort in Christ.
Celebrating devine comfort.
Deliverance from affliction.
f Blessed be the g God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and h God of all comfort ,
i who comforts us in all our affliction,
so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction,
with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
For as we share abundantly in j Christ’s sufferings,
so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too. 1
k If we are afflicted,
it is for your comfort and salvation;
and if we are comforted,
it is for your comfort,
which you experience
when you patiently endure the same sufferings that we suffer.
Our hope for you is unshaken,
for we know that
as you l share in our sufferings,
you will also share in our comfort.
For we do not want you to be unaware, brothers, 1 of m the affliction we experienced in Asia.
For we were so utterly burdened beyond our strength
that we despaired of life itself.
Indeed, we felt that we had received the sentence of death.
But that was to make us n rely not on ourselves
o but on God
p who raises the dead.
q He delivered us from such a deadly peril,
and he will deliver us.
r On him we have set our hope that he will deliver us again.
s You also must help us
so that many will give thanks on our behalf
t for the blessing granted us
through the prayers of many.
