Unchecked Copy Box2Co 1:13 - For we are not writing to you anything other than what you read and understand and I hope you will fully understand—

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 1:17 - Was I vacillating when I wanted to do this? Do I make my plans according to the flesh, ready to say “Yes, yes” and “No, no” at the same time?

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 1:18 - As surely as God is faithful, our word to you has not been Yes and No.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 1:19 - For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, whom we proclaimed among you, Silvanus and Timothy and I, was not Yes and No, but in him it is always Yes.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 1:20 - For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why it is through him that we utter our Amen to God for his glory.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 1:21 - And it is God who establishes us with you in Christ, and has anointed us,

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 1:22 - and who has also put his seal on us and given us his Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.[fn]

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 1:23 - But I call God to witness against me—it was to spare you that I refrained from coming again to Corinth.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 1:24 - Not that we lord it over your faith, but we work with you for your joy, for you stand firm in your faith.
