Listen to the Bible

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

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:2 - that in a great ordeal of affliction their abundance of joy and their deep poverty overflowed in the wealth of their liberality.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:3 - For I testify that according to their ability, and beyond their ability, they gave of their own accord,

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:4 - begging us with much urging for the favor [fn]of participation in the [fn]support of the [fn]saints,

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:5 - and this, not as we had [fn]expected, but they first gave themselves to the Lord and to us by the will of God.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:6 - So we urged Titus that as he had previously made a beginning, so he would also complete in you this gracious work as well.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:7 - But just as you abound in everything, in faith and utterance and knowledge and in all earnestness and in the [fn]love we inspired in you, see that you abound in this gracious work also.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:8 - I am not speaking this as a command, but as proving through the earnestness of others the sincerity of your love also.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:9 - For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, so that you through His poverty might become rich.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:10 - I give my opinion in this matter, for this is to your advantage, who were the first to begin a year ago not only to do this, but also to desire to do it.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:11 - But now finish [fn]doing it also, so that just as there was the readiness to desire it, so there may be also the completion of it by your ability.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:12 - For if the readiness is present, it is acceptable according to what a person has, not according to what he does not have.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:13 - For this is not for the ease of others and for your affliction, but by way of equality—

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

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:15 - as it is written, “HE WHO gathered MUCH DID NOT HAVE TOO MUCH, AND HE WHO gathered LITTLE HAD NO LACK.”

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:16 - But thanks be to God who puts the same earnestness on your behalf in the heart of Titus.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:17 - For he not only accepted our appeal, but being himself very earnest, he has gone to you of his own accord.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:18 - We have sent along with him the brother whose fame in the things of the gospel has spread through all the churches;

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:19 - and not only this, but he has also been appointed by the churches to travel with us in this gracious work, which is being administered by us for the glory of the Lord Himself, and to show our readiness,

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:20 - [fn]taking precaution so that no one will discredit us in our administration of this generous gift;

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:21 - for we have regard for what is honorable, not only in the sight of the Lord, but also in the sight of men.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:22 - We have sent with them our brother, whom we have often tested and found diligent in many things, but now even more diligent because of his great confidence in you.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:23 - As for Titus, he is my partner and fellow worker [fn]among you; as for our brethren, they are [fn]messengers of the churches, a glory to Christ.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:24 - Therefore [fn]openly before the churches, [fn]show them the proof of your love and of our reason for boasting about you.
