Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:1 - Moreover, brethren, we make known to you the grace of God which hath been given in the churches of Macedonia;

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:2 - how that in much proof of affliction the abundance of their joy and their deep poverty abounded unto the riches of their liberality.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:3 - For according to their power, I bear witness, yea and beyond their power, they gave of their own accord,

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:4 - beseeching us with much entreaty in regard of this grace and the fellowship in the ministering to the saints:

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:5 - and this, not as we had hoped, but first they gave their own selves to the Lord, and to us through the will of God.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:6 - Insomuch that we exhorted Titus, that as he had made a beginning before, so he would also complete in you this grace also.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:7 - But as ye abound in everything, in faith, and utterance, and knowledge, and in all earnestness, and in your love to us, see that ye abound in this grace also.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:8 - I speak not by way of commandment, but as proving through the earnestness of others the sincerity also of your love.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:9 - For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might become rich.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:10 - And herein I give my judgment: for this is expedient for you, who were the first to make a beginning a year ago, not only to do, but also to will.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:11 - But now complete the doing also; that as there was the readiness to will, so there may be the completion also out of your ability.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:12 - For if the readiness is there, it is acceptable according as a man hath, not according as he hath not.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:13 - For I say not this that others may be eased and ye distressed;

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:14 - but by equality: your abundance being a supply at this present time for their want, that their abundance also may become a supply for your want; that there may be equality:

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:15 - as it is written, He that gathered much had nothing over; and he that gathered little had no lack.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:16 - But thanks be to God, who putteth the same earnest care for you into the heart of Titus.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:17 - For he accepted indeed our exhortation; but being himself very earnest, he went forth unto you of his own accord.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:18 - And we have sent together with him the brother whose praise in the gospel is spread through all the churches;

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:19 - and not only so, but who was also appointed by the churches to travel with us in the matter of this grace, which is ministered by us to the glory of the Lord, and to show our readiness:

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:20 - avoiding this, that any man should blame us in the matter of this bounty which is ministered by us:

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:21 - for we take thought for things honorable, not only in the sight of the Lord, but also in the sight of men.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:22 - And we have sent with them our brother, whom we have many times proved earnest in many things, but now much more earnest, by reason of the great confidence which he hath in you.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:23 - Whether any inquire about Titus, he is my partner and my fellow-worker to you-ward; or our brethren, they are the messengers of the churches, they are the glory of Christ.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:24 - Show ye therefore unto them in the face of the churches the proof of your love, and of our glorying on your behalf.
