2 Corinthians 9

For
<1063>
as
<3303>
touching
<4012>
the ministering
<1248>
to
<1519>
the saints
<40>_,
it is
<2076> (5748)
superfluous
<4053>
for me
<3427>
to write
<1125> (5721)
to you
<5213>_:
For
<1063>
I know
<1492> (5758)
the forwardness of
<4288> (0)
your
<5216>
mind
<4288>_,
for which
<3739>
I boast
<2744> (5736)
of
<5228>
you
<5216>
to them of Macedonia
<3110>_,
that
<3754>
Achaia
<882>
was ready
<3903> (5769)
a year
<4070>
ago
<575>_;
and
<2532>
your
<5216>
zeal
<2205> <1537>
hath provoked
<2042> (5656)
very many
<4119>_.
Yet
<1161>
have I sent
<3992> (5656)
the brethren
<80>_,
lest
<3363>
our
<2257>
boasting
<2745>
of
<5228>
you
<5216>
should be in vain
<2758> (5686)
in
<1722>
this
<5129>
behalf
<3313>_;
that
<2443>_,
as
<2531>
I said
<3004> (5707)_,
ye may be
<5600> (5753)
ready
<3903> (5772)_:
Lest
<3381>
haply
<4458>
if
<1437>
they of Macedonia
<3110>
come
<2064> (5632)
with
<4862>
me
<1698>_,
and
<2532>
find
<2147> (5627)
you
<5209>
unprepared
<532>_,
we
<2249>
(that
<3363> (0)
we say
<3004> (5725)
not
<3363>_,
ye
<5210>)
should be ashamed
<2617> (5686)
in
<1722>
this same
<5026>
confident
<5287>
boasting
<2746>_.
Therefore
<3767>
I thought
<2233> (5662)
it necessary
<316>
to exhort
<3870> (5658)
the brethren
<80>_,
that
<2443>
they would go before
<4281> (5632)
unto
<1519>
you
<5209>_,
and
<2532>
make up beforehand
<4294> (5661)
your
<5216>
bounty
<2129>_,
whereof ye had notice before
<4293> (5772)_,
that the same
<5026>
might be
<1511> (5750)
ready
<2092>_,

<3779>
as
<5613>
[a matter of] bounty
<2129>_,
and
<2532>
not
<3361>
as
<5618>
[of] covetousness
<4124>_.
{bounty: Gr. blessing} {whereof...: or, which hath been so much spoken of before}
But
<1161>
this
<5124>
[I say], He which soweth
<4687> (5723)
sparingly
<5340>
shall reap
<2325> (5692)
also
<2532>
sparingly
<5340>_;
and
<2532>
he which soweth
<4687> (5723)
bountifully
<1909> <2129>
shall reap
<2325> (5692)
also
<2532>
bountifully
<1909> <2129>_.
Every man
<1538>
according as
<2531>
he purposeth
<4255> (5736)
in his heart
<2588>_,
[so let him give]; not
<3361>
grudgingly
<1537> <3077>_,
or
<2228>
of
<1537>
necessity
<318>_:
for
<1063>
God
<2316>
loveth
<25> (5719)
a cheerful
<2431>
giver
<1395>_.
And
<1161>
God
<2316>
[is] able
<1415>
to make
<4052> (0)
all
<3956>
grace
<5485>
abound
<4052> (5658)
toward
<1519>
you
<5209>_;
that
<2443>
ye, always
<3842>
having
<2192> (5723)
all
<3956>
sufficiency
<841>
in
<1722>
all
<3956>
[things], may abound
<4052> (5725)
to
<1519>
every
<3956>
good
<18>
work
<2041>_:
(As
<2531>
it is written
<1125> (5769)_,
He hath dispersed abroad
<4650> (5656)_;
he hath given
<1325> (5656)
to the poor
<3993>_:
his
<846>
righteousness
<1343>
remaineth
<3306> (5719)
for
<1519>
ever
<165>_.
Now
<1161>
he that ministereth
<2023> (5723)
seed
<4690>
to the sower
<4687> (5723)
both
<2532>
minister
<5524> (5659)
bread
<740>
for
<1519>
[your] food
<1035>_,
and
<2532>
multiply
<4129> (5659)
your
<5216>
seed sown
<4703>_,
and
<2532>
increase
<837> (5659)
the fruits
<1081>
of your
<5216>
righteousness
<1343>;)
Being enriched
<4148> (5746)
in
<1722>
every thing
<3956>
to
<1519>
all
<3956>
bountifulness
<572>_,
which
<3748>
causeth
<2716> (5736)
through
<1223>
us
<2257>
thanksgiving
<2169>
to God
<2316>_.
{bountifulness: or, liberality: Gr. simplicity}
For
<3754>
the administration
<1248>
of this
<5026>
service
<3009>
not
<3756>
only
<3440>
supplieth
<2076> (5748) <4322> (5723)
the want
<5303>
of the saints
<40>_,
but
<235>
is abundant
<4052> (5723)
also
<2532>
by
<1223>
many
<4183>
thanksgivings
<2169>
unto God
<2316>_;
Whiles by
<1223>
the experiment
<1382>
of this
<5026>
ministration
<1248>
they glorify
<1392> (5723)
God
<2316>
for
<1909>
your
<5216>
professed
<3671>
subjection
<5292>
unto
<1519>
the gospel
<2098>
of Christ
<5547>_,
and
<2532>
for [your] liberal
<572>
distribution
<2842>
unto
<1519>
them
<846>_,
and
<2532>
unto
<1519>
all
<3956>
[men];
And
<2532>
by their
<846>
prayer
<1162>
for
<5228>
you
<5216>_,
which long after
<1971> (5723)
you
<5209>
for
<1223>
the exceeding
<5235> (5723)
grace
<5485>
of God
<2316>
in
<1909>
you
<5213>_.
<1161>@ Thanks
<5485>
[be] unto God
<2316>
for
<1909>
his
<846>
unspeakable
<411>
gift
<1431>_.
