The Whole Revised and Diligently Compared with
the Latin Vulgate by Bishop Richard Challoner
THE SECOND EPISTLE OF ST. PAUL TO THE CORINTHIANS
In this Epistle St. Paul comforts those who are now reformed by his
admonitions to them in the former and absolves the incestuous man on
doing penance, whom he had before excommunicated for his crime. Hence he
treats of true penance and of the dignity of the ministers of the New
Testament. He cautions the faithful against false teachers and the
society of infidels. He gives an account of his sufferings and also of
the favours and graces which God hath bestowed on him. This second
Epistle was written in the same year with the first and sent by Titus
from some place in Macedonia.
2 Corinthians Chapter 1
He speaks of his troubles in Asia. His not coming to them was not out of
levity. The constancy and sincerity of his doctrine.
1:1. Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timothy
our brother: to the church of God that is at Corinth, with all the
saints that are in all Achaia:
1:2. Grace unto you and peace from God our Father and from the Lord
1:3. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father
of mercies and the God of all comfort:
1:4. Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we also may be able
to comfort them who are in all distress, by the exhortation wherewith we
also are exhorted by God.
1:5. For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us: so also by Christ
doth our comfort abound.
1:6. Now whether we be in tribulation, it is for your exhortation and
salvation: or whether we be comforted, it is for your consolation: or
whether we be exhorted, it is for your exhortation and salvation, which
worketh the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer.
1:7. That our hope for you may be steadfast: knowing that as you are
partakers of the sufferings, so shall you be also of the consolation.
1:8. For we would not have you ignorant, brethren, of our tribulation
which came to us in Asia: that we were pressed out of measure above our
strength, so that we were weary even of life.
1:9. But we had in ourselves the answer of death, that we should not
trust in ourselves, but in God who raiseth the dead.
1:10. Who hath delivered and doth deliver us out of so great dangers: in
whom we trust that he will yet also deliver us,
1:11. You helping withal in prayer for us. That for this gift obtained
for us, by the means of many persons, thanks may be given by many in our
1:12. For our glory is this: the testimony of our conscience, that in
simplicity of heart and sincerity of God, and not in carnal wisdom, but
in the grace of God, we have conversed in this world: and more
abundantly towards you.
1:13. For we write no other things to you than what you have read and
known. And I hope that you shall know unto the end.
1:14. As also you have known us in part, that we are your glory: as you
also are ours, in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
1:15. And in this confidence I had a mind to come to you before, that
you might have a second grace:
1:16. And to pass by you into Macedonia: and again from Macedonia to
come to you, and by you to be brought on my way towards Judea.
