Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:1 - And we make known to you, brethren, the grace of God, that hath been given in the assemblies of Macedonia,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:2 - because in much trial of tribulation the abundance of their joy, and their deep poverty, did abound to the riches of their liberality;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:3 - because, according to their power, I testify, and above their power, they were willing of themselves,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:4 - with much entreaty calling on us to receive the favour and the fellowship of the ministration to the saints,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:5 - and not according as we expected, but themselves they did give first to the Lord, and to us, through the will of God,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:6 - so that we exhorted Titus, that, according as he did begin before, so also he may finish to you also this favour,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:7 - but even as in every thing ye do abound, in faith, and word, and knowledge, and all diligence, and in your love to us, that also in this grace ye may abound;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:8 - not according to command do I speak, but because of the diligence of others, and of your love proving the genuineness,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:9 - for ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that because of you he became poor -- being rich, that ye by that poverty may become rich.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:10 - and an opinion in this do I give: for this to you is expedient, who not only to do, but also to will, did begin before -- a year ago,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:11 - and now also finish doing it, that even as there is the readiness of the will, so also the finishing, out of that which ye have,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:12 - for if the willing mind is present, according to that which any one may have it is well-accepted, not according to that which he hath not;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:13 - for not that for others release, and ye pressured, do I speak,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:14 - but by equality, at the present time your abundance -- for their want, that also their abundance may be for your want, that there may be equality,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:15 - according as it hath been written, 'He who did gather much, had nothing over; and he who did gather little, had no lack.'
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:16 - And thanks to God, who is putting the same diligence for you in the heart of Titus,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:17 - because indeed the exhortation he accepted, and being more diligent, of his own accord he went forth unto you,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:18 - and we sent with him the brother, whose praise in the good news is through all the assemblies,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:19 - and not only so, but who was also appointed by vote by the assemblies, our fellow-traveller, with this favour that is ministered by us, unto the glory of the same Lord, and your willing mind;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:20 - avoiding this, lest any one may blame us in this abundance that is ministered by us,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:21 - providing right things, not only before the Lord, but also before men;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:22 - and we sent with them our brother, whom we proved in many things many times being diligent, and now much more diligent, by the great confidence that is toward you,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:23 - whether -- about Titus -- my partner and towards you fellow-worker, whether -- our brethren, apostles of assemblies -- glory of Christ;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 8:24 - the shewing therefore of your love, and of our boasting on your behalf, to them shew ye, even in the face of the assemblies.
