Unchecked Copy Box2Co 9:1 - For concerning the ministration which is for the saints, it is superfluous my writing to you.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 9:2 - For I know your readiness, which I boast of as respects you to Macedonians, that Achaia is prepared since a year ago, and the zeal reported of you has stimulated the mass of the brethren.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 9:3 - But I have sent the brethren, in order that our boasting about you may not be made void in this respect, in order that, as I have said, ye may be prepared;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 9:4 - lest haply, if Macedonians come with me and find you unprepared, *we*, that we say not *ye*, may be put to shame in this confidence.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 9:5 - I thought it necessary therefore to beg the brethren that they would come to you, and complete beforehand your fore-announced blessing, that this may be ready thus as blessing, and not as got out of you.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 9:6 - But this is true, he that sows sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he that sows in the spirit of blessing shall reap also in blessing:
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 9:7 - each according as he is purposed in his heart; not grievingly, or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 9:8 - But God is able to make every gracious gift abound towards you, that, having in every way always all-sufficiency, ye may abound to every good work:

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 9:12 - Because the ministration of this service is not only filling up the measure of what is lacking to the saints, but also abounding by many thanksgivings to God;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 9:13 - they glorifying God through the proof of this ministration, by reason of your subjection, by profession, to the glad tidings of the Christ, and your free-hearted liberality in communicating towards them and towards all;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 9:14 - and in their supplication for you, full of ardent desire for you, on account of the exceeding grace of God which is upon you.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 9:15 - Thanks be to God for his unspeakable free gift.
DBY

In 1867, John Nelson Darby translated the New Testament from Greek into English. Further revisions were done in 1872 and 1884. Darby’s work was first published as The Holy Scriptures: A New Translation from the Original Languages by J. N. Darby. After Darby’s death in 1882, some of his students worked together to produce the complete Darby Bible based on the Masoretic Hebrew text, Darby’s German (Elberfelder), and the French (Pau) translations. In 1890, the first complete Darby Bible was published in English. This translation of the Bible is in the public domain.
